WHY TOUR THE HOLY LAND WITH
Goodshepherd Travel is a family-run Christian business with deep ties to the Holy Land. It is owned and operated by Tony Abuaita who grew up in Beit Sahour, one of the largest Christian communities in the Middle East, before moving to the United States in 1990. Beit Sahour is only a few miles from Bethlehem and is well known for the production of olive wood handicrafts often purchased by pilgrims.
Goodshepherd Travel was established for one purpose: to bring Christians from the United States to the Holy Land on safe, affordable and meaningful pilgrimages in order to better their understanding of their faith, and to help support the Christian presence in his home country.

We are ready to make your pilgrimage to the Holy Land a spiritual experience that will be a life-changing moment for you, your friends, family, faith community and fellow pilgrims.
