Ariel Israeli Travel & Tours

Neil Freimond

Ariel Israeli Travel & Tours is headed up by Neil Freimond (pictured below) who has been organising and coordinating trips to Israel for 33 years.

Israel, officially the State of Israel, is a parliamentary democracy in the Middle East, on the south-eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. It borders Lebanon in the north, Syria in the northeast, Jordan and the West Bank in the east, Egypt and the Gaza Strip on the southwest, and the Gulf of Aqaba in the Red Sea to the south, and it contains geographically diverse features within its relatively small area. In its Basic Laws Israel defines itself as a Jewish and Democratic State; it is the world’s only Jewish-majority state. The capital of Israel is Jerusalem.

Here’s Neil’s brief story:

After co-leading a tour to Israel in 1983 I came back with a very clear leading that I need to continue doing tours to Israel. This was confirmed by my colleague Pastor Charles Gordon who put his head into my office shortly after I had returned and said “Neil you need to be taking tours to Israel“.

After several other confirmations this Ministry, as I see it, began in earnest. My mandate has been to give pilgrims the best possible experience in Israel , by showing them the Biblical sites with Scriptures in hand. Our objective has always been to bring people back home – Blessed, and with a greater understanding and appreciation for the land of Israel and the Scriptures, as well as a deeper love for, and commitment to, Yeshua our King and Redeemer.
