Nothing is more important to us than the pastors and tour hosts who place their trust in Ed Hill Tours to help plan and to operate their group travel events. We are grateful for their recommendations and referrals.

Pastor J. Don George and Pastor Maury Davis – Calvary Church, Irving, TX & Cornerstone Church, Nashville, TN.

“I recently had the privilege of leading a large group of pilgrims to Israel. We chose to travel with Ed Hill Tours, a company with an excellent reputation and over 55 years of experience in Holy Land travel. Company owners, Richard and Meredith Page, were our Executive Tour Directors for this ten-day tour, and I could not have been more pleased with the services of this outstanding company.

Richard and Meredith served our group with the finest of professional care. They superbly covered every detail from showing me how to successfully recruit our participants to providing us with superlative facilities and equipment — excellent hotels, restaurants, Israeli guides, coaches, drivers, etc.

I did not receive one complaint or negative comment from our group of almost 80 people. The predominant comment was that the trip was delightful in every way, and was, in fact, a life-changing experience. Any leader planning to take a group to the Holy Land will be greatly blessed by the services of Ed Hill Tours and Richard and Meredith Page. They know how to make a trip to Israel both deeply spiritual and socially enjoyable.”  Dr. J. Don George, Pastor Emeritus – Calvary Church, Irving, Texas  

Note: J. Don George passed away on October 15, 2020. I was asked to be a part of his Celebration of Life Service. He is deeply missed by all who loved him and were influenced by him and his decades of ministry. Less than two weeks before his passing he told me that he was praying for Ed Hill Tours because how we operate is so needed in Christian travel. Richard Page – Vice-President – Ed Hill Tours

Pastor Stephen Hayes & Richard Page at Garden Tomb

“I want to tell you how highly I recommend Meredith and Richard and all the team at Ed Hill Tours. I have taken at least 10 tours to Israel with them and other locations in Europe, and every tour was perfect. No disappointments, no letdowns, no confusion or broken promises. Whether you are planning a small intimate trip with friends or a large church pilgrimage, you cannot do better than Hill Tours.” Mike Hayes, Founding Pastor – Covenant Church, Carrollton, Texas

Dr. Tom Mullins & Christ Fellowship group – Garden of Gethsemane

“This was my 3rd trip to Israel with Ed Hill Tours and I am always amazed by the quality, professionalism and attention to detail they provide. I appreciate the personal care Richard and Meredith and their entire staff gave our last group of nearly 200. Our recent ‘Journey with Paul’ tour to Greece was also top-notch in every detail.” Dr. Tom Mullins, Founding Pastor – Christ Fellowship, Palm Beach Gardens, Florida

Karen Swanson (L) at Church of the Nativity

“What wonderful experiences taking our groups to Israel year after year with Ed Hill Tours. Many have expressed that the tour was the highlight of their life. The accommodations are always beautiful, the food delicious, and it is always a pleasure to work with you.”  Karen Swanson, Teaching Leader – Hearts for Israel Tours, Ft. Collins, Colorado

“Ed Hill Tours is the real deal!”  Larry Thompson, Former Pastor – First Baptist Church, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

“Thank you so much for always producing a fabulous tour of Israel, possible because of the dedicated work of your company, and the personal touch that Richard and Meredith bring to the tour and to every member. It is always a profound spiritual experience. Many of my ministry friends pay hundreds more for tours that offer much less.”  Bishop Terry Wiles – Crossroads Community Church, East Hartford, Connecticut

Pastor Andy Harris & Richard Page in Jerusalem

“Thank you for organizing the greatest tour to the Holy Land I have ever experienced. The hotels were superb, the food was excellent, and the 46 members of our group came home with memories that will last a lifetime. I recommend Ed Hill Tours to all my friends who are planning a trip to Israel.” Andy Harris, Former Pastor – Central Assembly of God, Bossier City, Louisiana

Pastors Dick & Adam Bernal baptize Rev. Steve Hage

“Our deepest gratitude for all your hard work on our trips with you to Israel, Greece and Italy. We have walked in the footsteps of Jesus and the Apostle Paul and experienced the beauty and history of those amazing places. What awesome experiences they always are! We thank you.”  Pastor Dick Bernal, Founding Pastor – Jubilee Christian Center (Redemption Church) – San Jose, California

“I had always dreamed of going to the Holy Land and the trip was as awe-inspiring and energizing as I imagined. However, I never dreamed that I would travel with a company that would give me such first class treatment. You and your team are fantastic at what you do, and your personal touch was extended through the entire trip. I extend my highest recommendation to other leaders considering a trip to the Holy Land.”  Pastor Dale Faircloth – Connect Church (First Baptist), Royal Palm Beach, Florida
