Video Recap of D-Group's April 2017 Israel Teaching Trip
JOIN US ON ONE OF OUR TEACHING TRIPS TO ISRAEL. These are life-changing trips, and we hope you'll be able to join us! On each trip, we work with our favorite local guide, Moshe Malka (Gates to Israel), who gives us historical and Biblical context for our sites. Tara-Leigh Cobble (D-Group's Founder & CEO) leads the trip alongside Moshe, giving devotionals at significant locations.
While many companies offer cheaper trips because they take large groups of 200+, we intentionally host customized, boutique trips (usually 12-45 people) in order to maximize the number of sites we're able to see, as well as provide a calm and restful environment for absorbing details and making deep connections with others on the trip. People from all over the world join our trips, and we'd love for you to be one of them!
Please explore the other links below to see an example of our trip itinerary, check out payment information, and find your next steps. Please note: the dates listed below are departure-to-return; we're in Israel ~8 days / 7 nights. If you're opting for the "land only" portion of the tour, you'll need to adjust the dates by ~1 day on each end of the trip.

INTERESTED? LET US KNOW!
If you've reviewed all the info above and are interested in joining us, please follow the steps below!
STEP 1: Please watch our Interest Video FIRST (~20 min). You will need specific info from that video when you fill out the interest form in Step 2 below.
STEP 2: AFTER you've watched the video, fill out the Interest Form (~1 min). This is not a commitment. We'll immediately reply to you with an email that will provide more info to help in your decision-making process, so be sure to check your spam filter (or Promotions tab in Gmail) if you don't see an email from us.
You must be 18+ to attend one of our trips. Because of the pace of our trips, they are not recommended for those 65+ and/or those with limited physical abilities. And because many people find our site through internet searches and ask, we'll answer here: Those who are Catholic may prefer a tour geared toward visiting the Catholic sites and churches. Additionally, we find that our trips are best suited to those who are Christians.
We don't know what to expect from 2021 and beyond, but if there are still problems related to the pandemic, we will plan to adjust in order to abide by any rules Israel and the airlines decide to implement regarding masks, etc., in order to provide a safer environment for everyone and be good ambassadors by honoring local policies.
