QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER WHEN SELECTING YOUR TOUR COMPANY
RESEARCH IS KEY TO SELECTING THE RIGHT COMPANY
Please read this carefully before you sign up with any tour company
What is the Tour Company’s main focus?
Several vacation tour companies have attempted to make inroads into the Christian Pilgrimage market. Friendship Tours only specializes in Christian pilgrimages. We do not sell vacation packages to other countries. Christian Pilgrimages is all we do and we do it well!
What knowledge does the company have about their guides?
The owners of Friendship Tours personally screen and select all of our guides. We choose guides who are flexible and responsive to the needs of our group leaders. Our guides are well informed with a broad base of knowledge in both the Old and New Testament. Our guides make us successful and this is why our group leaders re-book year after year with us.
How long has the company been around?
After 9/11 several companies avoided refunding churches the tour payments and closed shop only to re-open under a different name. Friendship Tours has been in business since 1982 and has refunded all travelers their money. Every client was cared for after 9/11. This level of service and trust is important in the ever-changing world we live in.
Are the company owners Christian?
Friendship Tours is a Christian Company. We consider our work to be the work of God on behalf of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We understand Christian Pilgrimage and we make every effort to help you in planning a meaningful, memorable and faithful experience.
What financial protection does the company offer?
Friendship Tours carries high limits of liability insurance that protects the churches that work with us. We adhere to all US government over sight with regard to Financial regulations. We have strict company policies prohibiting the commingling of client deposits. This is a critical component of our integrity. During difficult times some companies will use customer deposits to survive and run out of funds to service their group commitments. Friendship Tours is a member of the Better Business Bureau with an “A” rating. Friendship Tours has the best buying power due to our long-standing professional relations with all international airlines offering us the lowest airfares with the best connections. Our buying power for ground services is reflected in the prices we are able to offer. Very few
