Stephen’s Gate is family-owned and operated by the Green Family, who have been in the travel industry for over 25 years. We are a tight-knit community that believes in treating our staff as family. We aim in every way to extend this this feeling of family our clients and industry partners who we maintain close and meaningful relationships as well.
Stephen’s Gate Tours grew out of our parent company, Mayfair Travel, a full service travel agency providing travel arrangements and vacations to destinations all over the world. When Johanna Green, President of Mayfair Travel, went to the Holy Land for the first time it sparked a passion to enable pastors and Christians to experience life-changing and faith-deepening effect of Israel first hand. The following year she returned to Israel with her family and church, and where her husband had the opportunity to baptize members of their congregation, including their children, in the sea of Galilee.
Our vision for Stephen’s Gate Tours is to provide an affordable and accessible service for Pastors and group leaders to work with to give as many believers as possible the opportunity to explore Israel, all other lands of the bible, and all journeys of faith. We work closely with pastors and other leaders to customize all aspects of the tour, from the itinerary to hotel choices, experienced guides, and the price to fit the needs and desires of each group perfectly.
