Do not use Pilgrim Tours!!! We just took Pilgrim Tours' 15-Day "First-Class" "Inspirational" Exodus tour of Egypt, Jordan and Israel. Be advised, go with another company. While pilgrim advertises this trip as using only 4 and 5 star hotels, what they do not bother to tell you is that in the Middle East, hotel standards are very different than those of the U.S. and Europe. The actual hotels that you will be in are horrible. They are old, with stained carpet and furniture, peeling paint, broken tiles and counter tops. The mattresses are very old and horribly uncomfortable and the sheets are terribly filthy. Pilgrim does not actually operate the tours themselves. They simply book everything and make the profit. They are just a third party. The tours are actually conducted by other companies in Egypt, Jordan and Israel. There is no representative of Pilgrim Tours actually present on the tour. When we got back from the trip and tried to confront Pilgrim's president about the problems, we were met with nothing but outright hostility and called liars. This is a very bad and dishonest company. Spend your money elsewhere.
