Behind the many years of our TransforMissional tours to Israel, is Imagine Tours and Travel (ITT). We are blessed to partner with our friends, Rick & Amy Ricart, founders of ITT. The Ricart’s lived in our hometown of Cape Coral, FL for a number of years and worshipped with us at Cape Christian, the church we founded.
The success of more than a dozen trips that we have led to Israel, Greece, Turkey, Egypt, etc., is Rick Ricart and his ITT team. They have handled all of the details of every trip that we’ve led in the last two decades. And, we have four more tours planned and all ready for you to experience. Check out the Upcoming Tours page for the details.
Here’s a picture of what happens behind the scene when we put a trip together. We start planning with Rick to formulate a customized itinerary, select our preferred guide, bus driver, hotels, and even details like which restaurant we will have our final farewell dinner at in Old City Jerusalem. Once all that is finished, Rick hands off all the rest to his team to design and print our brochures, keep track of registrations, payments, flight schedules and more. At the very end, around 10 days before our departure, Amy Ricart works with us to finalize the financial details. For example, Amy handles the disbursement of the tips that have been collected from the travelers so we can have them ready for our concierges, waiters, baggage porters, hotel housekeepers, bus driver, guide and more. Rick & Amy’s team at Imagine Tours and Travel make our job as tour hosts look easy because every detail is handled with professional excellence.
Over and over again, we hear from those we meet at the other end of the destination that, of all the tour companies in the USA that they work with, Rick & Amy Ricart of Imagine Tours and Travel, are the best of the best! We couldn’t agree more. We are blessed and you will be blessed if you join us in 2022 and 2023 for one or more of the tours we have planned for you!
