“What a trip! Leading up to visiting Israel we were excited with anticipation, but boy did it exceed anything we had imagined. Our tour guide CJ was outstanding. He broke down the Jewish culture, past and modern history, biblical connections/application, and geography of Israel at every site. It was just so awesome with how many sites and artifacts we were shown and how seamlessly our trip was organized. Throughout the week we were taken well care of. We stayed in very nice hotels, ate great food, and enjoyed a comfortable, air-conditioned bus driven by our expert driver, Happy. Happy made sure we stayed hydrated and took extra special care of us in keeping us safe. CJ and Happy complemented each other wonderfully. With packed days of touring, we enjoyed restful evenings. We also felt safe and secure throughout our travels, allowing us to delve fully into what we were learning and what God was teaching us about Himself.
Besides enjoying CJ and Happys sense of humor, we quickly experienced camaraderie between the rest of our group, which made little things like traveling, eating, and taking pictures fun. Thank you all for loving on us; we thank God for you and this short time we were able to connect. And most importantly we thank God as we recognize all the lessons we learned along the way. He definitely used this trip to reveal new things to us as we learned more about the Bible, God, and ourselves.
Thank you and many Blessings,
This was my first time to Isreal, and it was such a fantastic trip due to our guide Adam and our driver Money Mike! Adam is so knowledgeable and was really able to make each site come alive for me. We had a really large group, and I am sure that Adam felt like he was “herding cats” all week, but he kept us together and moving through the areas while sharing so much information. With Mike’s driving and sense of humor, I felt very safe even though the streets sometimes seemed way too narrow for all of the buses and cars! The team of Adam and Money Mike were fabulous, and I would highly recommend them!!
If you’re doing the Holy Land Tour, there’s no question in which company to choose - it’s Travel With Friends! The entire trip was very well planned and wasted no time in getting us in and out of sites while beating the crowds. Ibrahim was a phenomenal guide! He was personable, fun, and incredibly knowledgeable in the Bible and history of the land. Will definitely do this trip again and go through Travel With Friends!
I have been taking groups to Israel for over a decade, and Travel with Friends has always provided the best experience possible for our groups. Their detailed knowledge and care for those on the journey is amazing and leaves the travelers on each trip wowed and overjoyed!
We had the absolute best trip! There were 96 of us in the group and everything went amazingly smooth! Our guides, Adam and CJ we so knowledgeable and incredibly patient with such a big group. They are definitely great at what they do!! The bus drivers, Happy and Money Mike, were not only great bus drivers but great guys as well! Everything was top notch from the accommodations to the meals to the daily excursions. I would definitely go on other trips with Travel with Friends!!!
In a single word … WOW!
This was such an incredible experience. We traveled with our South Carolina church group June 19-28, 2023. From the time we cruised on the Sea of Galilee, through sites we had only heard or read about, to the humbling experience at The Garden Tomb, Travel with Friends provided us with a journey we will cherish always. Our guide, Adam, was great and his knowledge of the Bible, as well as each area visited, was truly inspirational. Our driver, “Money Mike”, kept us on time and got us to each destination safely with an added “joke-of-the-day”. As we returned home and have begun to share our experience with friends and family, Travel with Friends is strongly recommended.
Thanks for such a great trip!

I must take a moment to commend the tour guides, CJ and Adam. Adam is an exceptional guide at the sites, embodying the qualities of preparedness, personability, and professionalism. His extensive knowledge and passion for the destinations we explored were evident in his engaging storytelling and informative commentary. With Adam and CJ leading the way, I felt completely at ease and confident throughout my travels. It was obvious they both loved their families which made them even more endearing.
And the drivers! Kudos to our driver, Happy and the other bus driver, Money Mike. Their skills "threading the eye of a needle" or backing into slots are impressive and breath-taking!

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.

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!
