About Our Christian Tour Company
Friendship Tours was created in 1981 by its Christian owners with deep faith and a desire to serve and honor God. Our name says a lot about who we are and what we stand for. Every client becomes first and foremost a “friend.” The majority of our clients have worked with us for decades; some are second generation. Our commitment to service has developed a clear understanding of the needs of our clients.
Each year we take the time to visit all the hotels we use for our tours. Every guide we employ is personally interviewed. We continue to build relationships with our guides and applaud their dedication, knowledge and love for their native lands. Our guides play a vital role on all tours, and the special connection with your guide leads to a remarkable travel experience.
Our staff in each country is very experienced in managing all the needs of a group. They are dedicated to delivering the highest level of service. If an issue arises, it is fixed without delay.
Over the years we have grown to appreciate the abundance God has given us. “Friendship Serves” is our way of giving back. We financially support Jewish and Christian organizations. Please inquire how you can make a difference.
Our philosophy is simple! Offer an all-inclusive tour at affordable prices so that everyone’s dream of visiting His Land can come true. Compare our tour inclusions and price to any tour out there, and you will find us to be the best value for money. Additionally, we offer the generous benefit of one free trip for five paying travelers. This allows you to bring family and ministry staff along on the trip. No doubt, this enriches your ministry and builds fellowship.
After the horrific events of 9/11, most companies closed their doors and numerous people lost all their monies. We chose to do the right thing and honor God. Friendship Tours refunded over 2.2 million dollars to customers and churches. We believe our Lord has blessed us and rewarded us with abundance because of our responsible actions. Much has changed in the world of travel since 2001, but our mission has not. We remain a company dedicated to enriching the lives of the followers of Christ by giving them the best and most affordable experience in the Holy Land.
Please allow us the opportunity to serve you. We would be delighted to have you as a friend.
The most trusted name in religious travel since 1981
