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

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.

David Mosterd

Holland Christian Schools

In 2 Peter 1:5 we read that we are to “make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge.” For me that effort has taken me down a path of understanding the history, geography, language, and culture of the Bible. In doing so, I have found a depth of faith, a richness of the call He has given me, and a beauty of the mission He has given to His children. In my study throughout Israel and the Middle East, I have gained insights on the connections of the Old and New Testaments and how they tell one story. It is that great story that God has been writing since the dawn of Creation, a story that continues through Abraham, Moses, David, Elijah, Jesus, and the Apostles, and it is that same story that God continues to write with His people as His partners. I want to invite you to join that story by stepping into the ancient footprints of those who have gone before us. We will find in their stories, moments where they understood and lived the mission, and we will uncover times when they misunderstood or misrepresented the mission of being salt and light to a world that needs salt and light so desperately.
