Group Leader Testimonials

Our church had the pleasure of traveling with Rishon World Tours for trips to Israel and the Footsteps of Paul Cruise/Tour. The partnership has been outstanding. The Footsteps of Paul Cruise Tours and the Israel/Jordan land tours have been excellent-thorough advance communication, cordial partnership, extremely competent organization, very competitive pricing, and biblical emphasis-all these factors have created an ideal tour­ing environment for spiritual impact with our church family. These journeys have been personally fulfilling for me as a pastor, and the tours have benefited our church family immensely. I have heard some variation of the expression ‘trip of a lifetime’ from many in our church family over the past several years. Rishon World Tours has my highest recommendation. In fact, our church is planning another tour with them next year!

Helvetia Community Church
Guiding my church through a tour of the Holy Land and the Footsteps of Paul Cruise/Tour were both extraordinary experiences, thanks to the services of Rishon Tours. From the initial stages of planning, Rich and the entire Rishon Tours team exhibited professionalism and commitment. Their timely and responsive communication leading up to the trip addressed all our questions and concerns, instilling confidence in the journey ahead. The meticulous planning, knowledgeable guides, and seamless coordination made our trip an unforgettable and spiritually growing adventure. Rishon Tours’ dedication to excellence was evident in every detail. As a local church pastor, I wholeheartedly recommend Rishon Tours to those seeking a well-organized trip. I look forward to entrusting them with our future tours.

Table Community Church
I’ve traveled to Israel almost 20 times and have used several tour agencies. Rishon Tours is without question the best I’ve ever used. The attention to detail, taking care of our travelers, and the personal interactions are what make them the best. I’m also looking forward to scheduling a Footsteps of Paul Cruise/Tour with them in the future. I refer all my pastor friends who bring groups to Israel to Rishon World Tours.
