Thank you for taking a moment to allow me to acquaint you with Ed Hill Tours, the nation’s oldest tour company specializing in Christian group travel.
My father, Rev. Edward B. Hill, was a true pioneer of modern-day Holy Land travel. He first traveled to Israel in 1961, and began organizing tours in 1962. Although we offer tours to many other locations, Israel has always been our number-one destination.
Our clients include some of the largest churches in America, and I believe we offer the highest level of experience and caring service anywhere. I feel this is reflected in the large percentage of our business that comes from client retention and referrals.
Unequaled experience. For over 55 years, Ed Hill Tours has been a respected name in Christian group travel, and we are the recipient of numerous awards from the Israel government. Our staff has a total of over 200 years experience including hundreds of trips to Israel, Jordan, Greece, Turkey, and various European destinations.
A higher-level travel experience. We focus on providing well-crafted tours, excellent value, and personal service. We design each tour to fit the tour leader’s desired travel dates, itinerary, budget, and other considerations. We specialize in deluxe hotels, use only top-level guides, and the latest Wi-Fi equipped coaches. Beyond those important tour components, it is our heart-felt desire that everything we do provides the platform for an enriching spiritual experience for each tour member. One of the great joys of my life is being with our groups in Israel and being part of their experience of seeing the Land and hearing God’s Word where it all happened.
Integrity. 1) We do not demand a non-refundable deposit, as some tour companies do, just to book a tour with us. Not an airline or hotel deposit, it is done simply to “lock in” groups. 2) During the tour, our groups are never solicited for extra tips or “optional” touring. 3) We state specific hotels where our groups will stay. Some tour companies may state a certain hotel, but add “or similar.” More often than not, groups ends up at the “similar” hotel, which is any hotel the tour company considers similar. This “bait & switch” practice saves the tour company money at hotels where they find a better last minute deal. 4) We consider trust to be one of the core foundations of our business, including the protection of information regarding tour leader financials. Our “No Surprises – No Let Downs” policy is a primary reason we have built such a loyal client base through the years.
Professional service and buying power. Longstanding associations with our foreign land operators assures seamless tours, a high level of service, and unparalleled buying power. Israel’s largest incoming tour operator, Israel & Global Travel (IGT), has been our travel partner for over 25 years. We have also worked with our land operators in Greece, Italy, England, and other European locations for many years.
I always look forward to working with pastors and other tour leaders who wish to explore the possibility of a group tour for their congregation. We may be reached toll-free at 800.780.7801 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
