February 2026

Greece was a great trip – learning and making the Bible come alive – We loved all parts – singing, devotions, etc. We travel a lot but going with a Christian tour is the BEST!

I’ve been in the ministry for over forty years and regret not making this trip earlier! To see, feel and hear the sounds of the Holy Land took my understanding of God’s word from two-dimensional to three, from black and white to color!

As always the tour was very organized and we were able to see and experience so many new sites. The planning and the follow thru was so evident on the trip to Philadelphia. It was a perfect blend of history, leisure and shopping.

Thank you for one of the most memorable and inspirational trips we’ve ever taken!

It is difficult to find words to describe our experience. The trip was wonderful and it changed our lives. It helped bring Jesus to life from the bible!
