Million thanks from the bottom of my heart for paving the way towards the fulfillment of the major goal of this pilgrimage which is to encounter the Lord. I have strengthened my spirituality and will work hard continously for a sustained spiritual life."

Thank you Journeys of Faith for taking care of us (batch Mar4-17, 2018) very well from the pre-departure, food, accomodation, transportation, to crossing the borders, and for giving us a truly meaningful spiritual experience we will remember forever! What a beautiful pilgrimage it was!

I am so happy I joined your pilgrimage. More than friends, I found a family in your travel agency. I am looking forward to my next trip with you.

I just came from the Marian pilgrimage trip the other night. It was so fulfilling. People keep asking me which was my favorite part, and I keep answering "everyday". Of course I loved Fatima and Lourdes, but everyday we were brought to Churches I have barely heard of and I am astounded that they are not as popular as the former! Each day was a refreshing surprise. Words cannot described how immensely happy I am that I took this trip and how awed I am at the majestic beauty of each place. I felt Mother Mary's loving embrace throughout the trip and I want to be there forever. Thank you Journeys of Faith.

Thank you Journeys of Faith for that very memorable experience we had. Other people may have been saying that the package was expensive but i would say "worth it" is not even enough for the experience that we had during the pilgrimage gaining new friends who had been a new family for us as well. Everything was in order and well taken cared of by our angels Dana, Marites and Tito Willy. Our gratitude to you and we hope to journey again with you. God bless us all.

The personal care of the owner, Arlina, was much appreciated. The Holy Land pilgrimage was well-curated. Accommodations were excellent. The guides were articulate and were able to help us to cut through queues. Overall, a wonderful, enlightening experience. Will definitely go on another tour with them.

This is the best holy land tour around, hands down, It was such an enlightening trip that opened my eyes. I felt like I jumped into the Bible and lived the pilgrimage experience. The tour guides were all professional and super knowledgeable, all the hotels and food are top notch! As well as getting the best prices for your souvenirs. Thank you Luigi and Zarah for such a memorable experience! Hopefully to catch one of your euro tours next thank you and god bless!!!
