You’re invited to join us on a 13 day, all-inclusive Turkey Study Tour.

You will be immersed in the land and lessons of the Bible as you’re led on a journey through Scripture while your local guide and driver will bring the past and present culture of Turkey alive to all your senses.

Unlike other Holy Land tours, this tour is solely focused on bringing Scripture to life through first-hand experiences in the places the stories actually happened. An all-inclusive trip you’ll be free to focus on each moment without worrying about lodging, tips, transportation, entrance fees, food or water.

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.

— Joey

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.

Marty Solomon

Campus Pastor, BEMA Discipleship

In 2008, Marty Solomon had the incredible opportunity to travel to Israel and study under Ray Vander Laan on a very similar trip with GTI Tours. The experience changed his life forever. It seemed as though every mental image he had been given throughout his life was discarded and replaced by the things he saw and learned. Marty serves as the President of Impact Campus Ministries and is the creator and executive producer of the BEMA Podcast. Marty is married to Rebekah and they have two children (Abigail and Ezekiel). They recently moved to Cincinnati after living in Idaho for decades. Marty received his undergraduate degree from Boise Bible College with honors in 2005. Having a passion for historical context, he has spent over a decade pouring over the study of the world of Jesus and the ancient community of God’s people. He is thankful to the numerous people who have helped him in this endeavor and who have created the world of ministry he enjoys today.
