What our passengers are saying.
Fantastic itinerary, wonderful tour guide, good company, comfortable accommodations and delicious food. We were especially thankful to Maranatha travel for providing the fish lunch we enjoyed on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. Israel is a must-see for anyone wanting to really experience the land where Jesus walked and taught. The experience truly brings the geography of the Gospels to life. A wonderful experience overall. Thanks Pastor Steve and Tami, and Maranatha Tours for a well-planned and well-executed trip of a lifetime.
It was our second trip therefore we learned more faster. The guides were absolutely great. The spirituality was at its max. Jim Gilley’s experience kept everyone together and relaxed.
The group fit like a glove. The carefree and relaxed atmosphere was perfect. The rooms were all 4 star the food was 10 star. Something/plenty of everything regardless of your diet preference or restriction.
It was a great experience. I can not imagine the cost of such a trip could/would be enough to cover all of the trip. We had only to let go and flow. From airport pick up to airport drop off.
God bless maranatha, Jim and Camille and the guides.

This was a trip of a lifetime. More than I even had hoped. Our guide Malcolm was terrific and one of the most educated and informational people I have ever run across. The food was spectacular. The accommodations were great. Each day was filled with wonderful sites and a look back in history. Some of my favorite moments were the times we were singing in churches or the Shepherd's cave, the Sea of Galilee boat ride, communion at the garden tomb and the Holocaust museum. Having a rededication of my baptism in the Jordan River was a memorable experience. If I would have changed anything it would have been had to have more time at the museum as there was so much to see there. I also loved going to the marketplace and experiencing what life is like for people who live there. Thank you for the wonderful experience and I have been sharing it with all I am coming in contact with. Everything was well planned and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
I toured both Jordan & Israel. I enjoyed my tours. I took > than 750 pictures. My most enjoyable experience was to tour Qumran, the Garden Tomb and Peter in Gallicantu. I which I could have toured the Church in Cana, Pater Noster (The Lord's Prayer), and the Ascension Church/Mosque. Perhaps Maranatha could either extend the tour by one more day or permit people on the tour to have one day to see desired sites not included on the scheduled tour
It was beyond better than my expectations! I have gone to Israel before but this trip was far better! Our guide, Aron Salamon, was so incredibly passionate and knowledgeable about everything we saw. He taught continuously, and we learned so much. I loved that he wanted us to learn the history about Israel, but brought in the current things we need to know about. It was a great trip! Thank you to all who helped to make this trip so memorable!
