Firstly, the team: our guide Hussam was not only incredibly knowledgeable and personable, he had a true Catholic understanding of the Holy Land, which was rather remarkable. We felt utterly looked after and in the safest hands possible. Tom, one of the organisers was truly delightful, helpful and committed to the entire group having a unforgettable experience, which he achieved in abundance. I think everyone needs a Tom in their life! Shaki, our driver was a delight to return to after each visit - A brilliant driver, we always felt safe. Even the driver who collected us from the airport, George, a splendid man. Not to mention organisers, Elias and Said, who were true gems. They would accompany us on evenings, introduce us to the fabulous locals, and made the entire experience a very special and personal one. Father Dean, was a huge contribution to our group. The daily masses and spiritual guidance was one of grace and privilege, thank you Father for being with us on this journey. The hotel and food: Every hotel was utterly fantastic, as was the food each day. Everything was authentic, fresh and delicious; a joy to behold. The Pilgrimage: The daily pilgrimage itself was out of this world. I didn't know what to expect with this being my first pilgrimage and put it this way, I am hooked and incredibly moved by the experience. The unbelievable privilege of walking in Jesus' footsteps is one that words cannot describe. My cup runneth over. I believe every Christian, every human in fact should experience this at least once in their lifetime. It's soul food. Our group: We were part of a group of about 26 people from all over the globe. Building little relationships with these people was completely organic and nothing felt forced. It was just a pleasure to meet everyone, and we gelled incredibly well. I have certainly made friends for life amongst the group including organisers. Overall, the team organised a seemingly seamless and perfect trip. Thank you Holyland 360. You come highly recommended.

I think an extra day or two would have been good. Sam brought us so much info, history, geography, theology, politics and the brought Jesus’ life current. It was hard to observe. Food and accommodations were great, loved they gave me a taste of Palestine. I do think mixing religious denominations was a little difficult, but Sam managed it well.

I can't say enough good things about this trip, it was simply excellent. Firstly, the tour agenda was very well organised and clear from day one what we would be doing. Our tour guide was brilliant and brought rich theology into his explanations, the coach driver was excellent and the conditions in the bus were very comfortable. Our accommodation and food were top notch everywhere we went and stayed. The group of pilgrims was diverse and came from a variety of countries and ethnicities, so it was nice to connect with a mix of different people and to journey with them throughout the Holy Land and make new friends! The sites we visited were incredible in their own rights, and offered a range of different experiences from the hustle and bustle of Jerusalem to the quiet and prayerful at Dominus Flevit, each place added its own flavour to the tour. One of the most interesting parts of the experience was gaining a better understanding of the geo-political situation between the Israelis and the Palestinians which is an extremely sad plight, and something I am now better educated on and more interested to learn more, and hopefully bring attention to it to those who are far removed from the region. Fr Dean was a blessing to have to celebrate Mass and to be the chaplain for us pilgrims. Finally, thanks to Tom for being the impetus behind this tour, and who was a steady hand guiding us along the way. This pilgrimage has left me with lifelong memories and will be something that I cherish for the rest of my life as I reflect back fondly and with so much joy on how God called me to the Holy Land to be moved and to be sent back to my home so that I can be a better witness to Christ and all the wonderful things He has done for us.
