ARRIVAL AT BEN GURION AIRPORT TEL AVIV 

Upon arrival at Ben Gurion Airport (TLV) follow the people exiting the plane. Many are locals or seasoned travelers to Israel. Walk quickly to stay near the front of the crowd since Passport Control can be slow during peak travel seasons. At Passport Control you will receive a small visa document. Keep this visa document until your departure from Israel. After Passport Control is Baggage Claim. While in Baggage Claim it is recommended you exchange $100 for later incidental personal expenses. After Baggage Claim you will pass through Customs and then enter the Arrival Hall Lobby.

WHERE TO MEET AT THE TEL AVIV AIRPORT 

When you enter the Arrival Hall Lobby turn to the right where you will find some seating; beyond the seating is a coffee bar. Remain in the vicinity of these two areas. Dr. Notley will meet you in this area.

Testimonials

  • "Rarely a day passes when I don't think of something we did while on that wonderful trip. During the past year I have received many invitations from churches, Bible study groups, men’s breakfast groups as well as secular organizations to share of my experiences in Israel. God is sure using our time together in Israel as means of sharing his word in ways I would otherwise have never had the opportunity to do. Interest in Israel here in my community is so high at present. I use a PowerPoint presentation to illustrate my message. Many of the photos I use come from the collection you so kindly gave us after our departure - again, thank you. One of your opening remarks I remember was that while we would be introduced to much while in Israel during the two weeks of the tour, we would probably spend a lifetime unpacking the experience in our Christian walk. I think of that often and I want to let you know that your words are proving to be so true. I look forward to one day accompanying Steve on another tour, perhaps back to Israel or even to Greece and Turkey. I am praying for your ministry and thank God for your work, may He continually richly bless you."
