You are responsible to and for your people and must be sure they receive the best tour for their dollars spent. We present to you Maranatha Tours, Inc., and suggest you compare other companies to Maranatha before making a commitment.
Maranatha Tours specializes in Christian tours that visit places of the Bible or history that has developed our knowledge of the Bible and believes it is a ministry as well as a business. We have established a record of service and growth unique in this very competitive market.
Maranatha Tours was founded by Richard S. Reilly and Michael S. Reilly to promote Christian group travel. Dick Reilly’s unique background as a missionary in India, director of a mission society for 16 years, pastor, evangelist and a Youth for Christ leader, brought unusual insight into the ways and means of successful group travel. Though Dick Reilly has passed on, his Christian philosophy used in establishing Maranatha Tours lives on.
Dick’s son, Michael, as President of Fellowship Tours for 16 years, managed one of the largest tour operations for Christian group travel in the United States and has been President of Maranatha since its opening.
We are family owned and have his son, Greg “The Chef” Reilly as our General Director along with his Cooking Through The Bible, On The Road Eats and Traveling Through The Bible Show.
His daughter Jennifer handling all our operations. You will be very pleased with our staff’s professionalism and our concern for each detail.
Maranatha Tours was opened in partnership with Near East Tourist Agency (NET) in Jerusalem, one of the Holy Land’s largest Christian tour operators. NET has its own hotels, motor coaches and management contracts, allowing them full control of all their services in the Holy Land, Jordan, Greece and Italy.

We personally hand pick all our guides and tour escorts. We believe that the most important ingredient in a tour is your guide.

We are always available and each tour host will be able to reach us 24 hours a day. When an emergency arises we will be available to help solve the emergency. Sometimes in travel there are weather conditions, etc., that may cause delays. I promise we will be there to assist you through each and every obstacle. We are committed to making sure that each of our passengers has a life changing spiritual encounter as they stop reading the Bible in black and white only, and start reading it in full color. That is what travel does.
