When you choose Friendship Tours, the first thing that happens is you become our friend. This means we always treat you with respect and we go out of our way to ensure that you have a fulfilling travel experience.

Whether you want to marvel at the wonders of Christ and his disciples while visiting the sites where they stood, connect with your Christian heritage through pilgrimage to the Holy Land, or simply travel with like-minded people of faith, our Christian tours can help you find the enrichment you seek at the best value for your money and so much more.

With all-inclusive tours at affordable and competitive rates, we proudly help every traveler enjoy the trip of a lifetime. We even offer one free trip for every five paying travelers, so more family members or ministry staff can join Christian travel groups.

Pilgrimage Tours

Have you ever dreamed of visiting the famous Sea of Galilee, the real-world site where Jesus walked on water, was baptized by John the Baptist, and gave his glorious Sermon on the Mount? Maybe you’ve always dreamed of traveling to Bethlehem, where Mary gave birth to a miraculous baby fated to change the world.

When you partner with Friendship Travel for your religious travel needs, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in a range of pilgrimage tours that lead you through major biblical sites in Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Greece, and Turkey. You can see where Christ lived his life, follow in the footsteps of saints and prophets, and more.

Tours for our Christian travel groups include roundtrip airfare from your home city, first-class hotel accommodations, breakfast, and dinner daily, and guidance from knowledgeable, Bible-trained, professional local tour guides.

We visit every hotel we use to ensure the highest quality, we personally interview all of our booked tour guides, and we select experienced staff dedicated to delivering outstanding service.

Trips range from 10 to 15 days, depending on the tour you choose, and in some cases, we offer the option to extend your visit with travel to Jordan, Cairo, or Rome.

Christian Tours of Europe

If you’re interested in traveling through Europe with a Christian group, you’ll find that Friendship Tours also offers trips to several different European countries. You could spend 15 days seeing the sights of majestic England, Scotland, and Ireland or enjoy the splendors of Eastern Europe with a tour through Berlin, Vienna, Prague, Budapest, and Warsaw.

See the very best of Italy with a 13-day excursion through Rome, Capri, Florence, Assisi, and Venice. Or drink up the beauty of Barcelona, Madrid, Toledo, Cordoba, Costa del Sol, and Lisbon in 14 fabulous days touring Spain and Portugal.

You can also explore the churches of Europe with our European Church Heritage tour or visit the German towns of Martin Luther’s life. With so many amazing tours to choose from, your only problem will be deciding where to travel first.

WHAT OUR ESTEEMED CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US

It is always a pleasure working with you and your team. You guys understand the importance of selecting the sites and details including selecting the right Christian guides in order for the Bible to come alive.  You have trained your guides to know exactly how to work in tandem with pastors and allow the time to teach at sites. As far as pricing goes, we feel as though we got a 13 day trip for the price of a 10 day tour. For me the highlight was when you arrived in Jerusalem for our farewell dinner and shook my hand.
That truly made me believe that you really knew what “customer service” meant and went the extra mile to make us feel special. We’re ready to book our next trip!  Next year in Israel!

Thank you so much for making our trip possible in spite of all of the challenges we faced.   I recall, when the war in Israel started it was three weeks before departure. All our folks thought we would lose all our money because no one would go to Israel with rockets flying.  Insurance companies would not  pay out anything because war is not covered.  Two weeks later you emailed us and changed the dates to three months out at no added cost. Wow! That was the workings of a true Christian!  You could have charged us more to go two months later. But you did not and that’s a God fearing Christian right there. Friendship Tours, your travel ministry,  has my business for as along as I can travel.

Friendship Tours has been my only travel provider for three decades. From the Bible lands to Europe and the Reformation sites, they have always given me excellent service at the right price. I have always felt safe and satisfied. Their on the ground support has always made you know that every need will be covered. They are an industry leader you can trust.
