Samer was an utter gem! He 'made' the experience! Approachable and so informative, this guy had it all, and a brilliant sense of humour.

Excellent Pilgrimage. This the second one I shared with Rev Campbell and it was great in every respect although the Masada/Dead Sea trip had to be cancelled because of weather. I was pleasantly surprised when I received a refund on the cost for that trip.
Our group leader Bassam was excellent and ensured that we had more than adequate information on the numerous sites visited. Thanks you for providing us with great service.

Excellent knowledge and able to adjust the tour to our needs and experience. The food was excellent throughout, I really appreciated being able to eat in Monstery's and at some of the projects as well as using more 'usual' venues

We were so fortunate in both our Guide and coach driver. I felt safe and confident in their very capable hands the whole time-- nothing was too much trouble and we were given interesting and knowledgeable information everywhere we visited.

I really appreciated the variety of restaurants throughout the tour. I also was pleased that the food was mainly Turkish.

Our local guide, Saleem, was charming, friendly, helpful, well informed,spontaneous.
An intelligent fellow ....Keen to share his knowledge. On returning home....sad to leave him behind!

(April 2014)

The overall tour supervision by Tim Robb during the whole experience was exemplary. Nothing was to much trouble making for a most uplifting experience.

The performance of the local Guide - Dawoud Manarous - was in our opinion worthy of the highest praise, deadlines met, entry to Sites trouble free, questions handled with patience and answered professionally. The guy made the Pilgrimage a life enhancing experience - thanks. I will endeavor to contact Dawoud to see if he could list the most important numerological points he made during the tour

Really enjoyed the Nazareth village lunch c/w cooked bread direct from the oven. The food at the Dead Sea hotel was top notch - an amazing spread fit for a king (especially the sweets!)

(February 2014)

If there was a recommendation better than brilliant our guide would deserve it as he was a perfect gentleman and his knowledge seemed unbounded. He gave us just the right amount as information as and when needed but any questions regarding history, geography or customs etc. were answered without hesitation. He made the trip a total success!

(February 2014)

All issues, such as security, and the travel process, were dealt with clearly and helpfully.

(January 2014)

Great to be greeted by McCabe staff at Heathrow.

(January 2014)

Our guides were excellent with deep knowledge of the country, history and the Bible. The use of the whispers made their explainations much easier to hear especially in crowded venues.

On behalf of everybody from Ilford Hospital Chapel who went on our recent pilgrimage in conjunction with St. Augustine’s of Rush Green from  21st to 30th October I am writing to express our thanks for the wonderful, uplifting and spiritual time we spent in The Holy Land.

The hotels were excellent and the food we enjoyed was wonderful (in fact Ann & I are going on an immediate diet because we are certain we put on weight). We thought our Tour Guide, Johnny was excellent and fulfilled all our requirements and we would have no hesitation in employing him again. He was extremely knowledgeable and made our time visiting the various sites very enjoyable, explaining things to us from which we learnt a great deal. He sensitively opened our pilgrim eyes to the Palestinian problems as did Mary at the Bethlehem Rehabilitation Centre.

There is no doubt about it; when it comes to Pilgrimages McCabe set the standard which all other operators should emulate. We have heard nothing but praise from our pilgrims.
