If you are looking for the best value, personal service, hassle-free travel, a deeply Catholic experience, great food and adventure—then you’ve come to the right place.
I don't know anyone who's afraid afraid to fly into Chicago to see the sights or visit friends. But let four Jewish rabbis get murdered in a synagogue in Jerusalem and it makes headlines all over the world and everyone panics about flying into Tel Aviv, the safest airport in the world. Read my letter about safety in the Holy Land that compares the safety in Jerusalem with Chicago.

We chose the Footprints of God pilgrimage largely on the basis of the footage we'd seen in the Holy Land DVD series that Steve has produced...we were not disappointed. Steve of course provided the wealth of knowledge that one would expect from watching any of his DVDs. The local guide with whom he and Janet work expanded that already-excellent historical and biblical background even more. The guide is a wonderful Christian man from Nazareth whose family presence in the area extends back many generations. Furthermore, he has undergraduate and graduate degrees in History and focused his advanced educational studies upon the areas we visited...I'm sure we would have been hard-pressed to duplicate in any other tour operator there.Brian Warn
Steve arranged many excellent "add ons" that no other tour group would have provided: High Mass before the Holy Sepulcher, and audience with the Patriarch of Jerusalem's Latin Patriarchate, Mass every day at other wonderful sites, and meals at unique settings (e.g. at a Bethlehem restaurant, in a Druze village, and in Jericho). We even had the occasion to run as a group -- for those who wanted to do so that is -- around the wall at Jerusalem.
