All Expenses Covered

Our all inclusive tours mean you and your participants won’t have to juggle cash and haggle over prices. Your Travel Coordinator and Local Guide have prepaid and pre-tipped everything on your trip.

Online Registration

Just because you're creating a Study Tour doesn't mean you have to handle registration and payments. Our staff and the secure registration site handles all document and payment collections.

Preparation Guide

We have a detailed packing list, travel guide, and frequently asked questions section of the site that keeps your participants informed, prepared, and excited for your Study Tour.

Backpacks and Gear

We take care of everything so your participants can stay focused during your Study Tour, including providing them with a hydration backpack, study guide, flashlight, and passport/ticket carrier.

Online Tour Journal

We facilitate a near real-time audio/video/photo blog for your participants so friends and family can follow along and so you can promote your upcoming study tours to a broader audience.

What Influences the Cost?

A group study tour requires the coordination of hundreds of variables that influence the final per-person cost of a trip. The number of paid participants, number of days, season of travel, hotel selection, and distance from an international hub are just a few of variables that factor into the final cost. Your Study Tour Mentor can work with you to identify any cost saving options while ensuring your Study Tour provides participants a life-changing encounter with the land and lessons of the Bible.
