Khalid, Fr.Jacob, Sam & our bus driver were the BEST. I’ve referred 3-4 people to them already. I would recommend anyone to call and take a trip with them.
In planning the trip, we were given detailed information & instructions. Khalid made a special trip from Houston to Waveland MS to go over everything for the trip & answer questions for all of us.
Their prices were quite a bit lower than any others I saw.
During our tour, Sam, our Tour Guide, before each stop, gave the history of that particular site while we were on the bus (the bus had WIFI!), before & after the site visit, answered questions. Fr. Jacob, once inside, gave MASS each day we were at various Holy sites. Sam was always patient, kind and tolerant as was Fr. Jacob. We had 30-40 people and some would break away from the group (a no-no) but they would wait for everyone or go find the missing ones so we could go forward.
Our hotels were 4-5 star hotels with buffets and plenty good food. We had breakfast & dinner there which was included with the tour price; lunch was on us during the tour. Sam picked lunch locations that belonged to Christians. I felt very safe beginning, during & ending the trip. He also took us to several shopping areas belonging to Christians. They were so kind, respectful and helpful as was everyone, Christians & Muslims alike.
During the tour several of us were unable, due to health issues, to walk up some of the steep hills. Without asking, Sam arranged for us to go by taxi so we wouldn’t miss anything. Whatever we needed, it was speedily and happily arranged.
Many thanks to Fr. Jacob for this trip of a lifetime.
