Our Israel FAM (Familiarization) Tours are designed to offer pastors an opportunity to tour the Holy Land at significantly reduced prices. For our 2021 Pastors/Clergy Tour, we’ve planned an inspiring 10-day journey (not the 5 or 6-day “overview tour” some tour companies offer) to acquaint pastors with the land where Jesus lived, taught, performed miracles, died, and rose from the dead. This tour gives pastors the opportunity to learn various options for leading a tour of their own, and allows them to get to know us at Ed Hill Tours. EHT owners, Richard Page and Meredith Hill Page will accompany the tour from start to finish.
Note: Due to the fact that the airline does not confirm air rates for FAM tours until 8 months out, we will not have a final price until sometime in May. The following are last years prices, but the 2021 rate will be very similar or even the same. The pastors rate was $1599 and the pastor may bring a spouse or a staff member for $2250. All prices are based on double occupancy. The additional cost for a single room (no roommate) is $595. As always, space for a FAM tour is very limited and is available on a first come – first served basis.
What Is A Pastors “FAM” Tour? If you are a pastor who has never been to Israel, or if you haven’t gone recently, we invite you to come with us to experience this amazing land for yourself. On this full 1-day tour, you will visit some 40 major biblical and historical sites in Israel. Stand atop Mount Carmel, visit the Mount of Beatitudes, sail on the Sea of Galilee, and tour Masada via cable car. You will enter the empty Tomb, walk the streets of Old Jerusalem, pray in the Garden of Gethsemane, visit the Shepherd’s Fields in Bethlehem, and much more.

What makes our FAM tour different? Pastors are NOT asked to sign any contract or agreement, and are in no way obligated to future travel. We believe pastors are so inspired by their visit to the Land of the Bible, that they want to return with their own group without any pressure of any kind. There are no nightly meetings. Pastors returning with at least 15 paying passengers within 18 months (most tour companies allow only 12), will receive a $1000 refund of their FAM tour cost. And pastors always receive free travel typically based on one free tour for every five paying passengers. Pastors FAM Qualifications & Benefits

Recent Pastors Tour Report
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. Outstanding Israeli guide, Gershon Priewer, led this group, and Meredith Hill Page and Richard Page escorted the entire tour. Several pastors have already scheduled to return with groups from their congregations.
