As a pastor taking his first group to the Holy Land, I was so thankful to have the Travel with Friends team helping me every step of the way. They were amazing from the day that we picked the date to the day we returned. We loved the support staff, the guides, the accommodations and the travel arrangements. Highly recommended!
I had a most wonderful trip, accompanied by 15 new friends from South Dakota led by Pastor Rooney, 4-13 Feb 20. Because I was a VERY late add-on to their trip, I dealt with 4 people from Friends and each was OUTSTANDING. However, the STAR who deserves special note is Kelsie Vail, the Air Specialist: she was able to save me over $1,700.00 on my upgraded seating [disabled Vet with BAD back]. She was incredibly personable, professional, and simply "down-home" friendly, genuine, and nice!! The trip was a true "bucket-list" adventure, walking where Jesus walked, preached, and performed miracles [I was overwhelmed many times and want to visit Israel again!]. The sights were amazing; the bus was quite comfortable; and our Tour Leader ("Charlie") and bus drivers were extremely knowledgeable, experienced, and Safety-conscious. Truly the VERY BEST overseas tour I have ever taken! Thank you, Friends, and especially VP Mitch Jensen and Kelsie Vail for all the pre-trip information, help overcoming flight delay/change, and post-trip timely assistance. They will NOT let you down! Shalom!
The faces of Friends www.TravelWithFriends.com, BTR (Bill), Claudia and Charlie Dajani. An amazing experience that could only be possible with this team! From the first of booking our trip through to seeing us off at the ticket counter for our return trip back to the states. I absolutely recommend going to Israel and doing it with Friends travel. Charlie, you are amazing. Charlie’s extensive knowledge, humor, care of the group and individuals, mapping and juggling of sites to make it seamless and timely was a true treasure. Outstanding job!!!!! You all helped make this an experience to remember, share and HIGHLY recommend! ❤️
I have used a number of travel agents in my more than fifty pilgrimage trips to the Mediterranean world and it has been a special delight to travel with "Friends". Their guides have been superb and the hotels and travel arrangements have been terrific. You are in for a great time traveling with Friends!

Travel with Friends went above and beyond to help make our tour of Italy in 2017 a tremendous success. Great communication and accessibility, assistance with a customized itinerary, and first rate customer service to our participants are some of the characteristics that make them stand out as a company devoted to serving their clients. I highly recommend them.

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 wife and I took our first journey to the Holy Land in 2018 with Friends Tours and Travel. Having never gone before, we depended greatly on the experience and leadership of the Friends representative, Julian Ford. Our expectations were extremely high as we began our journey, but surprisingly our Holy Land experience far surpassed our expectations. I offer my highest recommendation of Friends and encourage you to plan a trip for your church as soon as possible.

I went on a trip this past summer with this group to Israel and had the experience of a lifetime. Everything was planned and carried out to the last detail with precision and care for our comfort and enjoyment and education on the history of the place AND of our Lord! I always felt completely safe, well guided, and accepted as a friend to my group and the tour guides. This is a company to trust with your bucket lists trips!! I did!!! And will again. Thank you "Friends" for the experience of a lifetime.
A heartfelt thank you to my new "Friends" and our Pastor for coordinating our recent trip to Israel. What an amazing life changing Christ-centered spiritual journey to our sweet Jesus' homeland!
