I loved having a Messianic Jew as our tour guide. He made the history and geography of the Holy Land come to life! We stayed in wonderful hotels with views of the Mediterranean Sea and the Dead Sea. The food was amazing. I loved this tour and would recommend it to anyone.

Pilgrims Tour staff were excellent in prior tour arrangements especially Robert Hamm. The hotel accommodation and meals were excellent as was the Tour Guide and bus driver. Suzanna’s biblical and historical knowledge was amazing. A big thank you to Wisam our bus driver who safely maneuvered the bus in cities and highways. Our journey to Israel with EL-Al was extremely disappointing for two reasons, firstly they delayed our flight by six hours to join up with a later connection. The Economy seating was a disgrace. I was embarrassed by the way our tour members were “stuffed” into inadequate seating space and then the six hour delay to begin our tour was disappointing. Business Class was pleasing as well as EL-AL STAFF. Overall the tour was a delight.

From Pilgrim Tours

Since 1987, we have been providing quality domestic and international group tours. Prior to opening Pilgrim, the owner of the company had 12 years of domestic and international tour management experience. Our courteous staff is comprised of proficient individuals, many of whom are veterans in the industry. We hold special contracts for airfare, hotel and other travel components that translate into a product of excellent value. Our tours are handled by qualified, friendly directors, safe and courteous drivers, and knowledgeable local guides who are experts on their regions. We use only modern motor coaches with climate control and comfortable seats. All international accommodations are rated 4 stars or higher (for the sake of value, some European programs, and custom private groups include 3-3 1/2 star accommodations), and our tour programs include the best of each region with a combination of historical, cultural, scenic and spiritual variety mixed for your enjoyment.

Our goal is to provide you with a worry-free well-planned schedule resulting in wonderful memories that will last a lifetime.

Trips & Specials

Pilgrim Tours has the appropriate insurance, financial reserves, trade association affiliation and client accountability. When dealing with any tour operator, you must be assured that they carry the proper insurance coverage and are a member of a reputable US trade organization (NTA or USTOA). Always check the Better Business Bureau rating. A reputable company will always hold advance payments and use them only as funding for the specific tour package that is booked for the client.

24 Hour Emergency Contact. With Pilgrim, not only do you have a 24 hour service coverage, you will also have our personal cell numbers. This represents a great value and comfort for those left at home.

Our Own Group Air Department. Our group contracts are the best in the industry and we control the ticketing. This is not the case with many tour operators.

Some Web Sites are pretending to be tour operators. Most of these sites are part time sales efforts similar to sites available a few years ago, many of which are now out of business. Do not trust web sites that cannot correctly answer the questions below. Do not trust web sites that do not answer the phone, or answer in a generic way without mentioning the company name.

Foreign Tour Operators have very little accountability to a US client. If you use a foreign-based operator, it is very difficult to get a refund no matter what they may promise you. In addition to refund complications, insurance coverage, claims and unrealized package inclusions can become a nightmare to recover. Given the current financial difficulty in many countries, do not think that your tour dollars are safe when you transfer them out of the country.

Financially, ethically, professionally, you can count on Pilgrim Tours!
