We believe pilgrimage should be accessible to all who want to make the journey, so we strive to keep our prices affordable without compromising on service or quality.
In addition to accommodations, ground transportation, guiding, and entry fees, our tour pricing includes all meals, tips, taxes, and fees. For standard accommodations with double occupancy, tours typically cost $250 per person per day, excluding airfare. This assumes a minimum of 20 people. For groups of 10-20, the average price is $300 per person per day. Luxury accommodations are also available and prices will be quoted upon request based on the dates of travel. At Progressive Pilgrimage, we try to minimize the costs for single travelers who wish for a private room. Our single supplement is limited to the actual costs for a private room and will be figured for each tour.
We will arrange group air transportation from your nearest airport to Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv. The cost of airfare can vary widely depending on travel dates and city of origin, so we recommend you do a simple online search to get an idea of what the cost might be. Group booking typically does not reduce the cost of travel, but it does provide significant flexibility that we find worthwhile.
Since education is a key part of our philosophy, the tour price includes a six original articles with questions for reflection designed to enhance your pilgrimage. These could be used by individuals or as a curriculum for a group study. In addition, we provide a reading list with additional resources. During the trip, each traveler receives a journal that is customized to the itinerary and filled with both historical background and spiritual reflections.
Trip insurance is highly recommended and can usually be purchased for around 10% of the total cost of your tour. Progressive Pilgrimage does not offer insurance and does not endorse any particular travel insurance company; however, we do encourage travelers to purchase insurance that covers cancellation for any reason.
Be a Group Leader
As a group leader, when you book a pilgrimage with 20 or more participants, you will travel at no cost. In addition, one of the Progressive Pilgrimage guides will accompany your group so that you can enjoy the trip. If your group reaches 30 participants, an additional guest may travel at no cost.
