I am most happy to write this letter of recommendation on behalf of TRINITY TOUR TRAVELS with whom I was privileged to lead a ten-day pilgrimage to the Holy Land and Jordan in April of 2016.
Iyad (Eddie) and Sami Abufarha, brothers and founders of TRINITY TOUR TRAVELS, were very attentive to the arrangements of the tour and tailored the experience to our needs as Roman Catholic pilgrims. Their partners in Jordan and the Holy Land provided us with knowledgeable Christian guides, opportunities for meaningful worship experiences at the holy sites as well as first class hotels and superb dining experiences. All of this was at a reasonable price.
We were especially fortunate to have Eddie accompany us on our tour. Because of his own family ties to Bethlehem and fluency in the Arabic language, he enhanced the pilgrimage experience by introducing us to some of the “living stones” of the Holy Land, the descendants of the first Christians. This fulfills the Abufarha family’s desire to continue to strengthen and support the Christians in the Land of Jesus’ birth.
It was the consensus of our group that one of the most meaningful moments of the tour was joining the Palestinian Catholic community of St. Joseph in Jifna for Sunday Mass. This kind of experience is not usually included in a standard pilgrimage and was deeply appreciated by all, myself included.
I highly recommend TRINITY TOUR TRAVELS and look forward to leading future pilgrimages with them.
