Good Sheperd Tourism,
Dear Mr. Joseph Felix,
I write this letter of appreciation to show how happy I was at the pilgrimage-May 18-May 27-
Tour of Israel, Jordan and Egypt.
First , I would like to applaud you for your well thought out tour arrangements and cosy stays at first class hotels. Also I remember the cap and bag you provided to every member of the tour party. Those were very helpful indeed during the travel.
Our flights were very comfortable and hospitality was superb. We really enjoyed the sacred places we visited with solemn prayers and timely masses by the Rev. Fr. Ratchakar from Neyveli and Rev.Fr. Dominic Rosario from Puducherry.
Ascending the mount Sinai in the dead of night had been an unique experience for us. Boat rides and cultural programmes that followed were mesmerizing. The cable car ride was also very enjoyable. And the guide who accompanied us was a very knowledgeable person who told the true history of each and every biblical places we visited. Without him, we could have been very ignorant about the historical importance of the places.
It is worth mentioning the efforts you took even when someone fell suddenly ill. One fellow traveller felt so sick and he was well managed by Mr. Joe with the help of a doctor in the tour party. It was really amazing.
The food was very appealing to the stomach though some may felt they are very meagre in taste for our south Indian palates. But the food was very healthy and nourishing. Tour schedule was very well planned and every contingency was carried out very well.
Last but not the least, the money we spent for the tour is very cheap indeed. I think “Good shepherd Tourism “ is really well worth the money .
I pray that God may shower you with earthly as well as heavenly riches.

Letter of Appreciation
My Family and I were part of the group of pilgrims who visited the Holy Places in Egypt, Israel and Jordan during the period 17th to 27th May, 2015 at the Holy Land tour organised by Mr. Joseph Felix of Good Shepherd Tourism, Tindivanam. This letter is issued in appreciation of the wonderful service rendered by him.
The planning was meticulous and the trip was more than the worth of the money.
He had organised the accommodation and food in beautiful star hotels to our satisfaction which gave the required rest, energy and vigour to go around every place.
His choice of guides was good and they were able to explain to the travellers well about the places visited.
The way he had organised the tour and the satisfaction we derived clearly showed his intention towards religion, and it definitely outweighs commercial interest.
In commendation of his services we give this letter of appreciation and hope many may get kindled and visit the Holy Land.
I wish he organizes many such tours and for the benefit of the peoples spirituality. My family and I wish him success in all his such endeavours.
