The Faithful Traveler in the Holy Land is a joyful, personal, and informative travelogue … I thoroughly enjoyed all six episodes.” 

— Scott Danielson, of the A Good Story Is Hard To Find Podcast.   Read the full review here on the Happy Catholic* website.

“Beautiful imagery, both still photography and live videography, brings the scenic landscapes, ancient architecture, and sacred art to life … The episodes are full of faith! I envision watching the series might even become an annual Lenten tradition.”

— Lisa Schmidt, The Practicing Catholic.  See the full review here.

“Throughout this well-produced series, it is difficult to imagine a more engaging on-screen travel companion in the land of the Bible than Diana.  She has done her homework, as any good guide should, mixing a careful balance of providing information of interest to all, with offering some clarification for those who might not have heard of a particular term or concept before. … a terrific series, one which I highly recommend …”
