The Guide

Touring the lands of the Bible is a unique experience that requires an excellent guide. The person who leads you through the roots of faith must be sensitive to the spiritual and historical significance of every site. Our guides present the cultural background and biblical connection for each location you explore. NET provides guides who are knowledgeable, patient, skilled in language, and desire to help others on their pilgrimage through the lands of the Bible.
