“First rate experience. All the accommodations were great, and everything was very well planned. Our Israeli guide and driver obviously had a lot of clout with everyone we met, which says a lot. Richard and Meredith went out of their way to make sure everything was the best it could be. I’ll be sharing my experience with a number of pastors in Louisiana and I’ll have no problem recommending the Pastors FAM trip. My wife and I plan on returning to Israel next year with Ed Hill Tours.” Pastor Ken Sifford

“Just came back from a Pastor’s Familiarization Tour of Israel. What a wonderful company to tour Israel with. Organized, friendly, not a care in the world. Was able to go to Israel and do what I was there to do without worrying about any details. First class people and company with a great heart for God and for pastors.”  Pastor Gary Underwood

From the pastors…

“First rate experience. All the accommodations were great. I noticed that wherever we went we seemed to be the primary tour group. Everything was well planned. Our Israeli guide and driver obviously had a lot of clout with the other guides and drivers and merchants, which says a lot. Richard and Meredith went out of their way to make sure everything was the best it could be. I’ll be sharing my experience with a number of pastors in Louisiana and I’ll have no problem recommending the Pastors FAM trip. My wife and I plan on returning to Israel next year with Ed Hill Tours.” Pastor Ken Sifford
