A few notes about the management team of Palestine Pilgrimage in the UK which you will find below.
Palestine Pilgrimage builds on the work of Paul Maddison; a Catholic priest who over the last ten years has lead more than 50 pilgrimages to the Holy Land and enabled over 1000 individuals to not only visit the Holy Places, but also the people who make up the Christian community in the Holy Land. Now established as a not for profit organisation Palestine Pilgrimage combines Paul’s great knowledge and extensive network of Israeli and Palestinian contacts, with an experienced team of Christian professionals in order to offer tours individually tailored to church, school and youth groups who wish to deepen their understanding of this complex society. Palestine Pilgrimage provides valued employment to the Christians who represent us on the ground in Palestine while any surplus income is sent to the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem for him to use on humanitarian projects in his Diocese which covers Israel, Palestine and Jordan.
Our tours are on a half-board basis staying at good quality hotels that we know personally. All our pilgrimages are accompanied by an experienced Christian guide and use air-conditioned coaches of a high standard, often with free wi-fi. We use departures from London, Luton and Manchester and are happy to give a quote for group travel or to include individuals on forthcoming pilgrimages. We have recently added Turkey, Egypt and Spain as destinations where pilgrims can explore the rich Christian heritage of these countries.
Palestine Pilgrimage is registered as a company in England (7180904) and is fully licensed by the Civil Aviation Authority under its Air Travel Organisers Licensing scheme (ATOL 10262). In March 2012 we became a Registered Charity in the United Kingdom (1145830).
Our agents in the Holy Land and Turkey are Gemm Travel and they assist with all our ground arrangements such as hotels, buses, guides etc. Their website can be reached by clicking on the link below.
