In today’s ever changing world, Olive Tree Travel has been established to give travellers the opportunity to escape the everyday hustle and bustle and explore countries, cultures and faiths that date back to when time first began. In this fast pace world we live in, Olive Tree Travel gives travellers the opportunity to go back in time and see how the world used to be and encounter people and places that have withstood the test of time and have remained a constant for thousands of years…. The Olive Tree is one such constant!
Those who know their scriptures will know the relevance of the Olive Tree as a resting place providing shelter and shade to pilgrims on their way to Jerusalem (and elsewhere throughout the ages). Similarly, it is Olive Tree Travel’s wish to provide you with the same shelter, comfort and provisions on your “pilgrimage”!
The Garden of Gethsemane in Jerusalem is an ancient olive tree grove, where biblical scholars and historians believe Jesus and his disciples prayed the night before his crucifixion. It is widely believed today, that some of those same olive trees are still there and have been living for over 2000 years. These resilient and long living trees are a bridge between the past and the present and give travellers the unique opportunity to see, touch and feel the very same trees that were in existence in the time of Jesus.
The Olive Tree branch is a worldwide symbol of hope and peace. It is sincerely hoped that Olive Tree Travel can play a small but significant role in bringing people together to better understand the world including some of the conflicts and challenges that exist in it. It is genuinely hoped that through travel and tourism, Olive Tree Travel’s small contribution to improving the economies of the regions and countries its tours visit will bring about stability, security and a lasting peace amongst the different religions, faiths and people.
We invite and welcome you to share in the vision of Olive Tree Travel.
