Israel 2019 Pastors Tour

2019 ISRAEL FAM TRIP FOR PASTORS, SPOUSES & STAFF

JANUARY 22-31, 2019

Our Israel Familiarization (FAM) Tour is designed to acquaint pastors with the Holy Land at greatly reduced rates. For our 2019 Pastors Tour, we’ve planned an inspiring 10-day journey (not the short “overview tour” some companies offer) through the land where Jesus lived, taught, worked miracles, and rose from the dead. For more information click What Is A Pastors “FAM” Tour? If you are a pastor who has never been to Israel, or you haven’t gone recently, we invite you to come with us and visit this amazing land for yourself…and you may bring your spouse or a staff member with you. Visiting some 40 major biblical and historical sites of the Holy Land, you will stand atop Mount Carmel, visit the Mount of Beatitudes, sail on the Sea of Galilee, walk the streets of Old Jerusalem, and so much more. Check out the 10-day FAM Itinerary. Our Pastors FAM Tour rates are approximately one-third the cost of many regular comparable tours. Of course, space is limited, so save the dates now and make plans to join us.

Pastors are not be asked to sign a contract or agreement and they are in no way obligated to future travel. We believe pastors will love their experience in Israel so much that they will want to return in the future with their own group. If a pastor does return with a group of at least 15 paying passengers within 18 months, we will refund $1000 of their tour investment. Check out our qualifications and generous benefits: FAM Tour Qualifications & Benefits.

We will fly nonstop on ELAL Israel Airlines from  Boston. The pastor’s cost from Boston is only $1599 and $2099 for a spouse or staff member. Prices are based on double occupancy. The additional cost for a single room with no roommate is $599. Space is offered on a first come, first served basis.

Included: Round-trip air from Boston, Deluxe and Superior First-Class hotels, full Israeli buffet breakfast and dinner daily, all entrance fees per itinerary, deluxe coach, group transfers in Israel, baggage handling on tour, top Israeli guide, and fully escorted by Richard and Meredith Page of Ed Hill Tours.

Not included: Transportation to Boston, additional meals and beverages other than those included, travel insurance and gratuities. Gratuities of $100 p/p for our guide, driver, and hotel staffs will be included on the invoice. No other tipping is necessary.

2018 FAM TOUR REPORT 

Presbyters and spouses of the Southern New England District

Ed Hill Tours offers our special Pastors Tour of Israel every January, and the 2018 tour was our largest Pastors Tour ever! This year’s tour was made up of two groups with over 50 pastors and spouses. The “Red Bus” was comprised of presbyters of the Southern New England District of the Assemblies of God, led by District Superintendent Bob Wise and one of Israel’s top guides, Shlomo Eyal. The “Blue Bus” was made up of pastors from all over the nation from several denominations. Another top Israeli guide, Gershon Priewer, guided this group, and EHT owners Meredith Hill Page and Richard Page escorted the entire tour. Several pastors have already scheduled to return with groups from their congregations.

“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
