Here’s what our friends say about us

“As a Franciscan priest guide I have had the opportunity of taking many pilgrimage groups run by the Garabedian agency and find them to be very conscientious as well as giving a ‘personal touch’ to their pilgrimages. I would, therefore, unreservedly recommend any Catholic organization or parish to utilize their services in making a Christian pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Their reputation as a agency is impeccable.”

— Fr. Peter F. Vasko, OFM
Spiritual Director of Pilgrimages, St. Saviour’s Monastery

“In December 1992 the Mormon Tabernacle Choir took a lengthy and extensive tour visiting and performing at many of the historical sights in Israel. The choir, staff, and associated guests numbered over approximately 1000 people. The service George’s International provided was truly outstanding. The accommodations were most satisfactory and reasonably priced. Their attention to detail was superb and made our entire experience highly enjoyable and worry free.”

— David N. Barnes
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints

“It is a pleasure to recommend Garo Garabedian and George’s International Travel, to anyone who wishes to organize a pilgrimage. I have always found him anxious to insure that every member of the group is served as an individual and valued customer, and willing to make accommodations to insure that each person derives the maximum enjoyment and benefit from the experience.”

— Reverend Monsignor Edward J. Dillon
Vicar General, Archdiocese of Atlanta

“I would like to express to you and your organization my sincere gratitude for all you have done to make pilgrimages to the Holy Land, sponsored by the Institute for Continuing Theological Education at the North American College, such a meaningful religious experience for so many priests from the United States.”

— Rev. Msgr. John M. Smith
Director, Institute for Continuing Theological Education
North American College

“The biggest test of a successful journey is the question: “would you return?” and the answer from both myself and the many members I’ve spoken with is an overwhelming YES with the caveat “but only if George’s Travel is again in charge.”

— Dame Lee A. Stanley DLJ
Pilgrimage Liaison, Order of St. Lazarus

“You have always done a superb job and your employees have always been intelligent, knowledgeable, respectful, cordial and capable. Our groups have always been eminently satisfied and vocally appreciative for the excellent treatment you have afforded us.”

— F. Russell Kendall
Vice Governor General,
Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem

“You and your staff have always been most helpful, gracious and cooperative. Every since you have taken charge of the priests’ trips to the Holy Land I know that they are always in good hands.”

— Rev. Msgr. Terrance L. Fleming, S.T.D.
Archdiocese of Los Angeles

“You provided the finest guides who are sensitive, and understanding. Every detail was handled to perfection. We are very grateful to you and we look forward to future trips under your expert and gracious supervision.”
