As a Tour Director, Tour Leader, and Bible Teacher I have gone on 5 tours to Israel with Friends Tours & Travel in the last year and a half. I have found the office staff to always be polite, friendly, and courteous along with being willing to help in any way to make sure each person has a wonderful experience while on their trip to Israel. While on the tour in Israel, Louie Dajani, our Tour Guide was very professional and did a fantastic job in giving the historical aspect of each site we visit. He is always willing to adjust the schedule to accommodate me and the places I ask to go to. The bus drivers on each trip have always gone over the top to help each person on the bus.
Above all without exception each person on all 5 trips expressed how safe they felt while being in Israel. There was never a time when they felt unsafe.
I would recommend Friends Tours & Travel to anyone as a Tour Leader wanting to take a group or as an individual just wanting to go on a tour to Israel. You will not be sorry you did!
As a Pastor and Tour Director it is my desire is to provide each person that travels to the Holy Land a once in a life time experience. It has been one of my greatest joys and pleasures to work with Friends Tours and Travel in offering our tour group this kind of experience. This 2014 tour was my 16th trip to Israel and I have used several companies throughout the years. I have never used a company that I felt more comfortable with than Friends. Louie and his staff were very, personal, professional and available to us whenever we needed them before, during, and now even after the tour. They delivered everything they promised they would plus much, much more. We will be making many more trips to Israel and there is no doubt in my mind that Friends will be our travel company for years to come. I would recommend them to anyone that desires to experience all that the Holy Land has to offer!
Friends Tours and Travel are awesome; I just came back from Israel. The tour can be rated a 5 star. Our tour leader, BTR “Bill The Redeemed,” our tour guide, Louie, and our bus driver, Mike, were the greatest. Our Pastor and his wife were such a blessing. Our tour was packed everyday with the presence of God.
Everyone needs to experience Israel and the life changing impact that it will have on you. If I could only travel to one place the rest of my life it would be Israel. I have just returned home from my fourth trip with the fine people at Friends Tours and Travel and it gets better each time. They provide the best in accommodations and the most knowledgeable guides. Other travel companies tend to move you along like cattle, but we enjoyed time at each of the sights for pictures, teaching time, and personal devotion. What’s more they made it easy and affordable. Friends Tours and Travel is the only company to call to arrange the trip of a lifetime.
A number of times I’ve traveled to the Holy Land with Friends Tours and Travel. Without a doubt, each trip has been inspirational and incredible. The accommodations are the best; the food is wonderful; the trip is a life changer! As tour hosts, my wife and I watch the transformation in the lives of those who go with us. People are simply never the same. The trip is spiritual, religious, educational, and fun. When you stand on the Mount of Olives once and look across to the Old City, there is a constant pull to return. I’ve made numbers of trips to Israel, and I’m in the process of returning again. I would not think of going with anyone other than Friends Tours and Travel.
I am pleased to recommend Friends Tours and Travel because they have truly become my friends. I have made numerous trips to the Holy Land with them and have found them to be excellent tour coordinators and very gracious hosts in Israel. The bus drivers and guides that they work with are outstanding. The accommodations and food are first class. I am looking forward to my next trip.
My experience with Friends Tours and Travel goes back to 2003. I have been on four Holy Land tours with Friends Tours and Travel.
In March, I was a leader of a tour that was arranged by Friends Tours and Travel. Prior to the trip, I was very pleased with the service that was provided by the home office in Little Rock, AR. The arrangement of the tour was done in a professional manner, and I felt that they genuinely cared about us as individuals.
Their tour guides are very professional and very knowledgeable about the various Bible sites we went to and about the Land itself. In addition, the bus drivers do a great job and very helpful in many ways.
Friends Tours and Travel did an outstanding job of making the Spiritual aspect of the tour of highest priority.
I would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone wanting to experience the trip of a lifetime to the Holy Land.
I have had the privilege of knowing and working with Friends Tours and Travel for over 10 years and have used them for numerous trips to the Holy Land. They have become not only Travel Agents but great friends. Their tour guides grasp, not only of the land and its history, but biblical insight and current events, are invaluable to me as a Tour Host. Having had several guides and Travel Agents over the years, they are definitely the best I have ever worked with. Looking forward to many more years of service to the Kingdom of God together with them.
I have used Friends Tours and Travel exclusively through the years because of the professional and positive experiences they consistently deliver. The travel arrangements, accommodations, food, tour services and attention to details always make for memorable and enjoyable adventures. Their tour guides knowledge and insights, have made each tour of the Holy Land an informative life changing experience. I highly recommend Friends Tours and Travel, not only for your Holy Land tour, but for all your overseas travel as well.
