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.

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.
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.
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.
