Traveler's Comments
  • The Security was excellent and friendly. We had a great driver and Guide! We always felt safe! We would love to come back. Russ & Carolyn Nail, FL

 

  • Before we arrived in Israel I was a little apprehensive from all the press and the reputation of the area. I was very impressed with the security and never felt unsafe in any areas we visited. I would tell others to 'go on faith', just enjoy your trip, why worry when God is in control. Thank you for the trip of a Lifetime!!! Ben Wright, Texas

 

  • I recommend anyone who has a desire to visit the Holy Land to plan on coming.  It is such a wonderful place and was an awesome experience. I want to come back. Our guide, driver were wonderful and super helpful.Connie Pittman, SC

  • I felt very safe and never once had a concern. I would tell others that for Christians, this is a must!! You will never feel the same. This has truly been a life defining trip for me. Thank you! Peggy Jones-Hinton, NC

 

  • I never in the least felt that my security was compromised. Not only is Israeli security top-notch, our tour guide did an exemplory job of looking out for our welfare. I have traveled all over the world including Russia, China, & Ghana; I've never seen security like Israel has. I have feared for my life in an inner-city trip in the U.S. but never while traveling or sight-seeing in Israel. It was a phenomenal trip! BethAnne Fisher, IN 

 

  • I just got back from my tour yesterday and just wanted to say what a wonderful time I had. My tour guide was Mike Tahhan. He was awesome! Mike is so knowledgeable not only about the religious history, but the history in general. He is so enthusiastic about his job, you can tell he loves what he does. I've been to other locations around the world, but this was the trip of a lifetime for me and Mike made it that much more special. I also want to say that our driver, Ishmael, was also wonderful. He is an amazing driver and so accommodating. Your hospitality teams were also a nice touch. Thank you for a wonderful travel experience! Mrs Rachel Bonura, FL

  •  The full impact of Jesus's sacrifice for ME was experienced at the Garden of Gethsemane. I felt not only the love of God but the love and respect for me from many of my fellow travelers. Patricia Taylor

 

  • Rev. Sammy B Foster- Sparta, NC/   What spiritual blessings did you receive from this trip? Only one person in our group had been to the Holy Land before so this group was first timers. These were mostly older people and they did see the Bible through a new light. I was so happy they saw and reacted to the truth of God's word. Each one seemed to find that place that touched them in a very special way. We have made 7 trips to Israel and other trips to Italy and Greece. This group, even with some special needs, was the most "together" group we have ever hosted. A truly bonded and loving group. Sam and I enjoyed sharing the Land with these sweet people. God has always blessed us with these trips. 

 

  • Rev. Ronald Adams- Shelbyville, TN/  What spiritual blessings did you receive from this trip? This was my 6th Pilgrimage, and very possibly the best.          In some places we are looking at 5000 years of Biblical history being unveiled by the archaeologists. As you embrace your faith in God with scriptures at each stop, it is though the land itself is speaking to you. Truly the "Stones Cry Out" with their history, and that history becomes forever imbedded in your heart and spirit. I will never grow weary of every opportunity to revisit my Spiritual Homeland and share that experience with all who travel with me.

 

  • Kathryn Cox- N. Richland Hills, TX/  What spiritual blessings did you receive from this trip? Standing on Temple Mount and looking at all the different parts that came into play for Jesus last days was truly a blessing.

 

  • James McCollum- Tuscumbia, AL/ What spiritual blessings did you receive from this trip? A better perpective of the area where Jesus ministered and a sense of closeness of His presence.

 

  • John Lafond- Chapin, SC/ What spiritual blessings did you receive from this trip? A much better understanding of the era of Jesus, what he was trying to do in the circumstances of the time, an even deeper understanding of God's gift and the obedience exemplified by His Son, and the message He was delivering from His Father.Overall evaluation of the Holy Land program:Because of excellence of our guide (Mike Tahhan)and sequence of sites, the trip was really meaningful and puts you in the time of Jesus and gives you a much better understanding of the Holy Land region itself as it existed in those days. The trip also gave us a better understanding of the current political problems faced for the peoples of this region.

  • Nancy Duttry- Fairfax Station, VA/ What spiritual blessings did you receive from this trip? Everything about the trip was a blessing!!

  • Mario Rocvil/ What spiritual blessings did you receive for this trip? I got the opportunity to experience what life was like in the time of our lord Jesus Christ via the landscapes and excellent lectures of our tour guide and tour captain. I learned to be more aware of my capacity for intolerance. I had some narrow views of the holy land based on slanted newscasts and some research, however after taking this trip and talking to locals, I realize that matters in the holy land are much more complex. I learned that I should pray more to ask the lord to help me look at things more objectively and not rely solely on my temporal senses and sources.

  • Lisa Zimmer/ What spiritual blessings did you receive for this trip? First and foremost, our guide, Mike Tahhan, was a huge blessing! His knowledge of the Bible and history was phenomenal and he was always great about answering our many questions. He had a wonderful sense of humor, as did our bus driver, Ishmael, and they made a great pair! I'm so THRILLED that Mike was our guide!Overall evaluation of the Holy Land program:I'm so thrilled that I was able to participate in this tour! Although sometimes I feel we had to rush from place to place so we could stay on schedule (I wished that we had more time in some places), I still thought it was awesome. Again, our guide, Mike Tahhan, was amazing and I'm so glad that he was assigned to our group. I can't imagine anyone being better than he was!
