Join a Study Tour

GTI Tours will forever transform the pages of your Bible from black and white into living color as you study Scripture in the places it actually happened.

We facilitate hundreds of Study Tours for dozens of churches, educational institutions, and tour leaders who we refer to as our Ministry Partners. Together we guide our participants through a life-changing encounter with the Holy Land.

If you're ready to step into the Text to study, learn and experience the Bible then select a scheduled Study Tour below and get to know our Ministry Partners and the exceptional pastors, teachers, and tour leaders from which you'll be learning.

What is a GTI Study Tour?

We've built into our study tours everything you need for an enjoyable and educational trip. We want you to be fully focused on the lessons and experiences you'll encounter, and not be distracted by local tipping practices, transportation arrangements, or meal planning.

We believe that as a Study Tour participant you're not a mere tourist—you're an investment! This is evident from the moment you book your trip, through to the time you return home to share what you've learned with your friends and family.

Our seasoned guides and ministry partners do so much more than handle the details and keep things on schedule. Our local guides have personal experience and intimate knowledge of the places and events you'll examine, and our ministry partner's teachers have a shepherd's heart and a passion for God's word.

The guides have been so personable and so knowledgeable and so friendly. There's just never a bad day for these guys. They make you very comfortable throughout the trip.

We got to walk the land and it made our bibles come alive, and my son being 17, he needed it to come alive. It solidified his foundation in his faith.

GTI has done such a great job of taking care of everything... allowing us to feel at home and really focus on the things we needed to from the very beginning.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who are the leaders and guides on a GTI Study Tour?

GTI partners with the best teachers, leaders, and local guides who understand history, culture, and more importantly, they understand our participants are not simply tourists, they’re people worth educating and investing in.

Our partners include a variety of nonprofit, educational, and ministry organizations who have a heart to share the Land of the Bible with others but need GTI’s infrastructure and expertise in order to provide participants with a full-service, all-inclusive study tour package.

Each study tour we facilitate is unique because of the time of year, the local guide, the leader, and ultimately because of each participant in the group.

What do you mean by “all inclusive”?

As a participant on a GTI Study Tour we endeavour to cover all base expenses in the cost of the tour. All your meals, tips, transportation, lodging, and entrance fees are covered. The only exceptions may be optional excursions such as souvenir shopping, hot-air balloon rides, cruise ship extensions, and visas that can’t be prepaid. If your study tour has such an exception that requires additional funds, you’ll be given noticed well in advance of your departure date.

Other tours attempt to lower the sticker cost by making everything optional, but here at GTI Tours we know what makes for an exceptional tour and can’t wait for you to join us without worrying about hidden fees and options.

Can I choose from any of GTI’s Study Tours?

GTI Tours partners with a wide variety of nonprofit, ministry, and educational organizations. Many of these partners are leading sold-out tours for their own constituency and their friends and families. Other organizations lead multiple study tours a year and tend to have space available for members of the public to inquire and join their group. Ultimately, our ministry partners decide who will join their group. GTI works closely with both our Ministry Partners and Participants to connect them with the right fit.
