“My Pilgrimage to the Holy Land with Priority Travel & Tours in under the spiritual leadership of Rev. Kathy Howell, and with guide Mike Sayyad and driver Mo Sayyad, was a faith-affirming event in my life.
Mike set the scene for every stop we made by sharing the scriptures with us. Traveling with a man whose family have been in the Holy Land for generations brought a deeper understanding of the area and the foundations of our Christian faith, and made this more than an educational “tour.” We made a Pilgrimage! And that was what I had wanted.
The food and hotel accommodations were outstanding. Mike added personal touches to the trip from his concern that all should be able to participate to the special cookies he bought for us. That was even more than I had expected. The entire experience was a blessing.”

Jo Parker, Sulphur, La
“I have just returned from my recent trip to Israel and Turkey with twenty-one friends of Asbury Theological Seminary and Dr. Ben Witherington I am writing to thank you for your part in making this Christian pilgrimage such an enriching experience. Our overall experience was exceptional.
The air travel on Turkish Air was an acceptable experience. Our hotel accommodations in Galilee at the Tulip Hotel were adequate, and the accommodations at the Grand Court were excellent. The food at both locations was superior. The opportunity to eat indigenous food during the lunch hour pleased the palate. There was ample opportunity for shopping, and our people felt as if they were given a chance to interact with people from the country and culture. Our driver, Jamal, was a delight, and made our people feel safe and secure. The touch of having water on ice at the front of the bus was much appreciated.
That being said, I must say a word about our guide: Mike, you did an outstanding job. Your knowledge of the Scripture and the lay of the land is without peer. All of our people grew to love and appreciate you. You did a great job in the planning and the carrying out of your responsibilities. When I come to Israel again, I want you to be my guide.”
Dr. Jeff Greenway,, President Asbury Theological Seminary, Wilmore, KY
“I have been to the Holy Land several times and Priority Travel & Tours made the land arrangements for our Pilgrimage. Their excellent care of the pilgrims, knowledge of sites visited, excellent accommodations and overall performance in handling all the arrangements made the religious experience overwhelming. I’m planning another Holy Land Pilgrimage with Priority Travel & Tours.”
