Les and Vicki are planning to take another tour to Israel in October and they would like to gauge the interest to see how many would like to come. They have an exciting itinerary for this 10 day/9 night tour and have chosen the October half-term dates to enable families to participate.
If you are interested, please contact Vicki and she will get a booking form sent out to you. The cost of the tour is £895 if we have 30 or more in the group. This cost will be less with more in the group or can be slightly more if the numbers dip below 30.
Here are the details of the trip:
