Do not go on a day that there is not a passion play. We did and were so very disappointed. There were no Bible characters along the tour. No chance to listen to Mary, Peter, Ruth, John, etc. We went years ago and it was amazing, but this trip we had a bus, no characters and the tour guide basically preached for over 2 hours..not even having her biblical facts right. Was not what we were expecting nor what the website stated.

Spent a large part of a day and night here. Went to see the statue of Jesus of the Ozarks. Then went on the tour of the Holy Land. Tour went to 5 places taken to each vignette by the bus. Very well organized. Knowledgeable spokesperson at each stop. Was a bit skeptical at the first stop, the tabernacle. Extremely knowledgeable spokesman. Far more than I ever knew or needed to know. Thought I was in a graduate class. However, it did spark my interest to look up some things. The rest of the stops were more what I imagined- Bethlehem, River Jordan, last supper and tomb. We then went to the buffet dinner, which was good. Went to a lively hyn sing after that and then several interesting pre shows. All very well organized and timed. There were also 2 museums. One of Bibles and one of great art work. Finished our day by attending The Great Passion Play. A very well done performance.

This was a very awesome connection to the Bible and how things passed for Jesus in his time frame. The tour guides, the ones who portrayed the characters were very informed and ready to answer any question with confidence.

My comments here are only about the Holy Land Tour. The Passion Play was outstanding and the buffet was average but provided adequate value for the price. We ( 2 couples; all seniors) did this tour on June 10, 2017. The tour time was advertised as 12 to 4 pm. We started the tour at 12 and a bus took us to the first stop- the Tabernacle. The minister gave a good educational presentation- about 20 minutes. Then we walked out to an open area. It was a hot day with the sun shining brightly. Some found shady spots; some were on the open. We waited; no one knew what and when the next part of the tour would commence. There was no waiting bus. After 20 mts waiting, I was getting concerned as one in our group was feeling faint. I asked the lady in a kiosk: when is the next bus? She answered that she doesn't know and thought that they were short of a bus and driver. I asked her whether she could call for a golf cart so that we can return to our cars. She replied that she had no way of contacting (unbelievable! no cell phone; no radio contact). We were able to get some water and slowly made it back. I asked the very polite young man who had checked us in to see if I could talk to the manager/supervisor. He called and then advised us that the supervisor asked for my number and will call back. I did not get a call. Constructive recommendations: 1. A full itinerary should be provided to at the beginning of the trip with approx times at each station and wait times in between the stations. 2. If lacking in bus or driver, this information should be relayed to the customers and the tour should be modified to accommodate this 3. Name of a responsible person (supervisor) on station should be provided with contact number. Contact number for emergencies should be given. All employees and volunteers should have these numbers and should be required to carry a cell phone or radio contact. 3. Bottled water should be available ( may charge a reasonable amount) at the start and in stations. 4. The noon to 4 PM time should be reconsidered during summer months. 5. The reason for this detailed note is because as a physician (retired professor of medicine), I am very concerned for the safety of the elderly who are susceptible to heat exhaustion and heat stroke; those who are taking prescription meds may not even perceive the normal protective thirst sensation. Management: please take these issues and recommendations with the gravity they deserve. Visitors: reconsider your intention to take this tour and if you do please take adequate precautions.
