WHO WE ARE?

A CHRISTIAN PILGRIMAGE OPERATOR
WITH A DESIRE TO LET JESUS SPEAK TO THE PILGRIM
Road to Emmaus Pilgrimages (RTEP) is an LLC founded by Caroline Smith following a 2011 life-changing pilgrimage to the Holy Land. With an experience so spiritually enriching,  I am eager to share the Lord’s Love with you – by assisting you to plan and realize a similarly rewarding pilgrimage. With a complete understanding that - not all pilgrimages are born equal – RTEP knows the secrets of pilgrimage and strives to create them for every Holy Land tour we operate.
RTEP - Ambassadors for Christ is a different kind of ministry. It is a ministry that fervently believes in the power of the Scriptures and the breaking of the bread as the prime contributors to burning disciple hearts full of Christ’s love for everyone.

Who is better suited to show you the homeland of Christ than a Christian who calls it home! The guides we employ are Christians, born and raised in Israel. Our preferred guide, Peter, was raised in Jerusalem. A professional tour guide since 1999, he carries the experiences & legacy of his late father, also a tour guide for 50 years. Peter has a burning heart for Christ. He has personally led hundreds of tours. He, and the rest of the RTEP guides, continue to share their passion, helping others encounter the Risen Lord on the Holy Land Road to Emmaus, which RTEP and they believe every Christian must take.

A HOLY LAND PILGRIMAGE IS ABOUT CHRIST THE SAVIOR

When you seek a spiritual encounter with the Divine, by definition, you are no more a tourist but a seeking pilgrim with limitless encounter possibilities. 

 

You are now joining the millions of pilgrims, starting from Mary, the mother of Jesus, to the Apostles Peter and Paul in their quest for God. They all experienced Him at His appointed space and time. 

A HOLY LAND PILGRIMAGE IS ABOUT YOU

The experience of visiting the Holy Land is unlike any other pilgrimage. It cannot be compared to pilgrimage sites anywhere around the world. You are coming to the heart of the Bible, the heart of the incarnation, death, and resurrection.

 

You will be setting your foot on the very land the Lord set his foot on; you will be walking where He walked, eating some of the same food He ate, and seeing the same landscapes He also saw.

A much deeper understanding

An amazing tour

I thought I was just getting a tour of the Holy Land... what I got was so much more... perhaps an abbreviated Master's Degree in Bible history. I have a much deeper understanding of my Catholic religion and the struggles of the region. P
