What made this trip unique from all others was – spirit! There was a friendly, caring, Christian spirit in the group that made this trip a standout. This attitude, I believe, was passed down from the organizers. They did everything to make us feel special, provide assistance, and have a good time. Thank you so much.
Holy Land Tour
I recently returned from a trip to Israel to visit the Holy Land with the Holy Land Tours and Travel. This opportunity is something I have wanted to do in a long time. I was blessed to be able to go with Pastor Symons and a wonderful group of Christians to experience this incredible trip! The icing on the cake was having Holy Land Tours set everything up for us. From the moment we reached our destination to when we left, we were treated with such kindness and generosity! They really wanted us to have an amazing trip! I highly recommend everyone to put this on their list of places to visit and to it through the Holy Land Tours and Travel Company.
I’ll always be grateful for the opportunity to “walk where Jesus walked” in the care of Holy Land Tours in Pastor Luther Symons’ group. In addition to giving thorough pre-trip preparation strategies, they were also readily available during our visit there, joining us at various locations to offer any assistance we might need and making sure we were doing well….they cared!! The accommodations (airline, bus and hotel) were comfortable and clean, the food sumptuous and plentiful. Our driver and tour guide were top-line, the best possible team. The wealth of knowledge our guide shared was well-grounded Biblically as well as historically and his leadership skills superb. The fact that we were able to see and experience so many different sites during our visit is evidence of the credibility of Holy Land Tours, highest commendation!
Thank God for pilgrimage of a lifetime!
I cannot thank God enough for giving me and my husband the opportunity to join the pilgrimage to Holy Land through Holy Land Tours and Travel, LLC last Oct 15, 2022 with Pastor Symons of Incarnation Lutheran Church. Having walked the footsteps of Jesus was such a remarkable experience and having done it together with a group of awesome Christians (19 people in all) made our experience truly meaningful and very memorable. Holy Land Tours and Travel did such an amazing job with our itinerary. They even provided each of us some souvenirs; such a great action for a company to do. The hotels we stayed in were clean, comfortable, and the food they served were sumptuous. To top it all off, our tour guide, Jad, was superb and truly knowledgeable of biblical stories and ancient history. He’s exceptional. Our driver, Shadi, was also amazing and commendable. We really could not ask for anything more. Kudos to Holy Land Tours and Travel, LLC!
Up and At Em!
Just returned from a great trip to the Holy Land. It was non-stop action full of sights and information.
It was absolutely beautiful to visit Tierra Santa
Everything was amazing especially meeting Tierra Santa, one life time experience. Ramzi was amazing knowledgeable y our driver Jorge, was an amazing driver. Both of them were courtesy towards all of us and they did a great job.
Hotel and food were good. The Legacy hotel in Nazareth had decent size room but The Sunrise in Bethlehem were a little too small but personnel and the conditions of cleanest of the rooms were acceptable. I will strongly recommend others to this trip. I believe we have to have at least once in our lives this kind of experience. Everyone were nice to us. One suggestion, it will be good to add other places to visit on each trip and not only have the same places each trip, that way people will be able to experience most of the country. Also, have more places of shopping more reasonable to our pockets. Some of them were a little too expensive and sometime people like to go to bargain places and be able to bring more. I know my group loved shopping just like me. Overall, trip was awesome and I am glad I did it.
Take care, many blessing to all of you and hope to see you again 🙂 God bless you
I went to the Holy Land with 42 people from my parish last October, was very surprised at how well Holy Land Tours organized and planned the pilgrimage! They were able to answer all the questions my people had asked and give us a well developed answer. The tour guide was outstanding! He met us in the airport and took us to the hotel. It was a very wonderful experience; the hotels were very nice and relaxing after going through a long journey to get here. The tour guide Abraham, was very well informed and experienced; it was clear he knew what he was talking about. We visited most of the places in the Holy Land with our wonderful bus driver. The food was delicious and there was a wide variety of it. The Christian families were very friendly and it was wonderful to share bread with them and listen to how they live. We enjoyed the final party very much; me and my people were very satisfied with their services and we recommend Holy Land Tours to anyone wanting to see the Holy Land. In fact, I am planning to go back to the Holy Land with Holy Land tours in 2021.
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the trip to the holy land. the experience was amazing and it could not of been better. I really liked the tour guide Abraham he was really nice and knew a lot about the history of the holy land. he also helped every one with anything they needed and he was amazing. the hotel San Gabriel was really nice it was clean and the food there was all around delicious.
Thank you holy land tours for the amazing trip
The trip was superb! —
The trip was superb! — I went to the Holy Land with my church for a pilgrimage and walked the footsteps of Jesus. We visited a lot of places and the tour guide was informed and knew a lot about the Holy Land history. We learned a lot from him. The driver was wonderful and he knew how to drive us safely to our destination. The hotels they had for us were amazing as well! If you are looking for a Travel Agency in the future, I recommend taking Holy Land Tours.
We had a group of 18 go. For many this trip was on their wish list. This was my first time leading a tour of any kind and Holy Land Tours always communicated well when we prepared for the trip and the owner or staff person was always available when we were in Israel and Palestine to answer our questions and take care of our needs. They made sure our trip was what we needed it to be. They tailored it to our requests. Everyday was full. We spent great reflective time in the quieter region of Galilee and witnessed the hustle and chaotic scene of Jerusalem. We ate St. Peter’s Fish near then-Capernaum, went out on the Sea of Galilee, renewed marital vows in Cana, dunked a bunch of people in the Jordan River (the highlight for many), floated in the Dead Sea, saw where Jesus was born, where he grew up and walked the final week of his life in Jerusalem, plus so much more. We also experienced the culture of Palestinian Christians as we ate in their homes one night, had a private folk dance performance, and safely explored the city of Bethlehem and the many shops around the Church of the Nativiity. The tour veterans of our group raved about Holy Land Tours and WHEN I take another group back, it will only be with this company.
The amazing Holy Land
What an incredible trip this was for our group of 16! Being a full time church worker the Holy Land has been on my bucket list for years. Holy Land tours obtained the perfect Christian guide for us one who was knowledgeable beyond the norm…born, raised & still living in Nazareth our guide Monir was able to tell us so much more at each of the sites we visited. Our driver was incredibly knowlegeable as well & the two men worked well together, giving us the best! Holy Land tours went out of their way to make certain we felt taken care of on almost a daily basis. Hotels were nice, Mediterranean food outstanding. They even allowed our group to break into smaller groups & join families in Bethlehem for dinner one evening…what a highlight! The company has been a joy to work alongside every step of the way. Thank you for your many kindnesses and taking care of our safety. I plan to return again and again…but only with Holy Land tours. I’ve traveled to over 50 countries, this one was the most relaxing and enjoyable because of our guide & driver Nour…the man deserves a medal driving on some of these roads, lol.
Holy Land Tours surpasses any group i have ever known
I have traveled to the Holy Land three times. HLT surpasses any group, any travel experience that I have ever known. Your selflessness and generosity can only come from a deep spiritual conviction, and Holy Land Christians are blessed through your efforts.
fulfilling and satisfying
The tour itinerary was very fulfilling/satisfying. The only recommendation regarding the itinerary would be to add another Jordan location (maybe Wadi Rum) and make it a three day part of the trip. The guides and drivers were knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, and always professional. Our little group bombarded Re’fat with questions and he answered them all. The hotels and restaurants we used were all wonderful.
The entire trip was fantastic
The entire trip was fantastic – accommodations, food, attractions, guides, driver, and especially the gracious hospitality the team provided us in inviting us into there homes and meeting their families.
Travel to the Holy Land has been number 1 on my bucket list since the early 80’s. I have studied, researched and prepared myself for more than twenty years. And as a Theology major I thought I had a working knowledge of what I was going to encounter – but there was so much more… Holy Land Tours provided the best tour guide for our group. He was knowledgeable and provided details or as I now refer as “One Tradition says”. I will never be able to read, meditate or proclaim the Bible in the same way. I had reservations in going to some locations but the tour guide, bus and photographer were very protective of us and ensured that we would be safe everywhere we went. I cannot say enough about our driver who was phenomenal on the roads getting our very large bus into and out of very tight spaces.
Holy Land Tours did such a great job in ensuring our needs were provided for and that we were able to see so many sites. Where there could have been a few shorter days – I wouldn’t have traded it for anything. The fact that I had the opportunity to attend Mass in some of the most holiest of Churches and to walk in the footsteps of Jesus and his Disciples – well nothing will ever take those memories from me.
If you are wanting to experience the Christian experience – I highly recommend Holy Land Tours – everyone was customer service oriented and they went above and beyond for our group in scheduling an opportunity to meet with Christian families in Bethlehem – a true experience of breaking bread with our Christian Brothers and Sisters.
Would I go again – Yes, but only with Holy Land Tours
Your tour company exceeded all my expectations. Besides the well thought out itinerary I especially appreciated the feeling of safety, knowing you were with us to help us in any way. That meant a lot. I required additional arrangements and you planned them exceptionally well. For being in such a large group I did not feel like we were being herded like a flock of sheep. You gave us time to reflect on the places we visited. Thank you for such an unique experience.
A journey of a lifetime
Holy land tours made our journey so complete. Not only did I see what Jesus saw, I walked the same paths that he did. Along with our journey, our tour guide, Rami, was amazing, his explanations brought the Bible to life in my heart. When I hear the Bible readings now they are accompanied by what I saw and the stories I heard and makes it so real. What an incredible time I had. I hope to do it again.
Absolutely wonderful!! Everything from the first contact information to, sadly, saying goodbye was well thought out and planned. Would highly recommend Holy Land Tours and look forward to the possibilities of taking the trip again in the future.
Randy and Kaye D Trip of a Lifetime
It was unbelievable to walk where Jesus walked, see places he preached, prayed, and suffered. We now are able to make connections with people, places, and miracles we hear about in the Bible. The pilgrimage was full of spirituality. It was special to tour with Catholics from Pierce County and a few of their close friends. Everything was well planned and all people involved were there to help in any way possible. We would recommend this pilgrimage to friends and family.
