What Your Peers are Saying

We work hard for you…

We wanted to say thank you for all your hard work organizing our pilgrimage. We had the experience of a lifetime. Everything worked out wonderfully. The flights were on time and went smoothly. The guides were very knowledgeable. 5 star experience and will be happy to refer others to Select International.

…and give you great value for your money…

We were Wowed by all of the places we were able to see. This Pilgrimage hit all of the places we wanted to see. Other Tours required two Pilgrimages to cover the visits we saw on this one Pilgrimage.

…while keeping sight of what a pilgrimage should be…

…you are visiting so many places of religious significance, it was amazing. This was one of the greatest experiences I have ever been on in my life.

…so you can focus on the experience, not the details…

Select removed all the thinking and planning for the trip which was great! It was nice not having to worry about the hotels and food. Also, our tour guides were amazing!! Select does a good job choosing Catholic tour guides. A lot of fun, and I would recommend again.


…and trust that Select will take care of you. No matter what.

Amy and I cannot thank you enough for your work to get us safely home.  [Other pilgrims (we met at checkpoints and the airports) were abandoned by their tour companies.]   We appreciate you and your colleagues at Select International and should we travel internationally in the future, we will be using Select International.  I have told countless friends and family members about you and your company.

Select Works With the Best Guides

Select International Tours only works with the best and most ethical guides in the business. We wouldn't trust your trip to anyone we don't trust.

I'm emailing to give a strong and heartfelt recommendation for our Holy Land guide, Hani. I also commend the bus driver, though I must admit I've forgotten his name. I recall that at some of the sights where Hani shared a short spiritual reflection/comment—and I happened to be scheduled to preach at Mass at that site—I thought that what he shared was as worthwhile and inspiring as anything I had preached or was planning to preach, depending on whose comments had come first.

Your Trip Supports Christians Living in the Holy Land

Select to Give was founded in 2014, by Select International Tours, Inc. as a not-for-profit 501 c (3) Foundation with the intent of helping Christians of the Holy Land stay in their homelands with the freedom to worship, be educated, and work in a safe and healthy environment.

Our Mission

The Holy Land (Jordan, Israel, and Palestine) is home to over 350,000 Christians, most of whom are descendants of Jesus’ disciples and those whom the disciples converted. Sixty years ago, Christians accounted for about 18% of the population of the Holy Land; now they are only about 2%. There remain about 50,000 Christians in the Palestinian territories. The Select to Give Foundation exists to help the Christians of the Holy Land! Through the funding and creation of programs and partnerships, we support innovative community efforts to help Christians achieve a safer and more prosperous existence.

Your Trip Supports This Mission

Select International Tours donates a portion of every registration to Select to Give. 100% of the donations received by Select to Give directly support Christians living in the Holy Land through various programs. To learn more, please visit:
