When I established Pax Travel in January 1978, most of my present management and staff had not been born. Only the evergreen Julian was there to help set up the new organisation, which was designed to allow ordinary people who could not afford fancy prices to go on pil...

I should like to wish all Pax Travel clients a blessed Christmas and prosperous New Year.

 

We have been overwhelmed by your positive comments about your experiences of pilgrimages you have made with us during 2015. I personally read every feedback form that is sent to...

To me, Pope Francis is a great man. He is humble, concerns himself with the poor and disadvantaged members of society, and preaches the gospel. I'm not going to classify him in a league table of good popes, trip-advisor style, but I will say this: I was present in Rome...

This is the guiding principle of my life from now on. Many apologies for having been silent for the last few months, but I have had many things to think about, and have experienced conflicting emotions, senses and thoughts taking me from despair on hearing some painfu...

In the balmy days of September, it is good to draw breath and rejoice that peace is now in full sway in the Holy Land. Our Palestinian guides, drivers and restaurant and hotel owners have thanked us for continuing to send pilgrims to the Holy Land.

Dear Benjamin,

 

 

I hope you don't mind me calling you that, but it sounds less formal than Mr Netanyahu. I just wish you had tuned into the BBC yesterday evening, to hear the inspirational of the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra conducted by one of your inspired and enlight...

Now our new website is positively sparkling and displaying pilgrimages to all parts of the world, I should like to pay tribute to the person who enabled this progress to be made and without whose inspiration,hard work and forethought,none of this would have been possib...
