Why the Holy Land?

Church of the Holy Sepulchre

Wilcox Is Your Gateway to The Holy Land

The cultural roots…the religious heritage…And the historical pathways

Visiting the Holy Land is not like touring anywhere else. It is a kind of homecoming. We all grew up hearing about Biblical locations in our homes and churches, and the events and holidays became part of our lives. Since 1953 WILCOX has been helping groups of pastors, pilgrims and students accomplish this life-changing journey.

Our tour hosts, or group leaders, attribute their success in hosting tours to the Holy Land to our company’s care we take in selecting our guides, our buses, our drivers and our hotel properties in-country, and our personal attention we give each one of their group participants, as well as our very competitive pricing.


Our basic principle is this: The tour is yours! We’ll help you design and implement the kind of experience you want. Some choose to stress the cultural and historical aspects of these lands. Others seek to deepen their faith, following in the footsteps of Jesus, the first apostles and the earliest Christians. In addition to visiting the archaeological sites, we make a special point of exploring the landscape, showing how it connects to the Biblical events.

The Guide

The qualities we seek in a guide are knowledge, language skills, patience, and above all, heart. These lands are special, so the persons who lead you through them must be responsive, both to their deeper meanings and to your purpose in being here. Our guides can present the cultural background or the Biblical text in a living connection to the sites.

The bus and its Driver

Our tours feature modern air-conditioned coaches. The drivers are chosen for their skill, patience, and professionalism.


We price most all of our tours with all options and extras. This way, the tour participants are not nickled and dimed along the way.

We Do Group Travel Differently

During WILCOX’s four generations, operating tours has been a vocation in the deeper sense. We just do group travel differently!  You can get a first impression of us by exploring our private website just for tour hosts. Just as our websites differs from others, so we here at WILCOX differ from other tour companies.

Let us help with your next journey to the Holy Land and you too can see how we can make it a special, life-changing experience.
