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.
Please understand that there has been fighting going on many times when we are on pilgrimage and it has never affected us because the locations pilgrims visit are such a distance away from the areas of unrest. People who travel with us comment over and over again how safe they felt the whole time. You can see videos of real Holy Land pilgrims commenting on their safety here.
We received the letter below from the Government of Israel commenting about the situation reported on in the news recently.
The State of Israel has set out on a limited military action in the Gaza strip region in order to protect it’s citizens in order to restore peace to the region.
The situation is closely monitored by the Israeli security forces and is limited to a specific area in the south of Israel, and a safe distance from the regular and frequent tourism sites and routes.
At present there are more than 100,000 tourists traveling through the country undisturbed and more our plans to arrive.
In the event that there’s a change in the situation, detailed information and guidelines will be distributed.
The state of Israel is well prepared and committed to handle all scenarios and secure the safety and well-being of tourist.
John and I had such an extraordinary experience traveling with you to the Holy Land last year (the St. Andrew group), that we’ve reserved space on [the Footprints of Paul Mediterranean] cruise and extension to Rome. Our plans were to take a major trip next year, but we couldn’t pass up this opportunity to join you and Scott Hahn on this journey. We have great confidence in you and Janet and your attention to detail so the travel goes smoothly; but more important is your knowledge of scripture and ability to bring the faith to life in these ancient sites.Katheryn D.
