We hear this question from everyone these days: “Is it safe to travel, I mean, with COVID and everything?” We answer with this: “We do everything in our power to be safe, whether COVID is on the earth or not. We always have.” Maurine and I have adventure in us. I spent two years really “growing up” in the Middle East (in Ankara, Turkiye) and my parents knighted me with the title: Citizen of the World. I have cherished that title and all that goes with it. Maurine and I love to teach, we love to be with you, and we want to explore this entire planet.
We have led tours for 30 years and we will keep leading them for years to come. We visit the Holy Land every year (at least twice when conditions have allowed). We lead the Ultimate Church History Tour every year in the fall. We try to pick other fascinating places to go, to explore, to relish, to love. We cannot resist the British Isles and Europe. We have done Norway, the Baltic Capitals, the Mediterranean many times, Central America, the Panama Canal and South America. We have ventured into most of the continents (including Antarctica) and we plan to do much more.

Our Holy Land tours are unique, and you may not have seen them offered before, because in addition to seeing all the inspirational and historic sites you would want to see on a visit to the Holy Land, we are taking you to some places we find fun and unforgettable–places that most tour groups don’t get to go. After so much time in the Holy Land, we found some things we think are “not-to-be-missed” that most miss. There are some spaces that have opened up on this tour so disregard any SOLD OUT signs.

Now is the perfect time to explore this ancient land and see its most important sites on a 8-day-in-country tour of one of the most sought out locations in the world. And our dear friend, Hany Tawfeek, will be our Egyptian guide and host–he is the number one tour guide in Egypt and has been the guide for heads of state, including President Obama. You can book this in addition to your Holy Land Tour (on either side of it) or talk to our agents about just coming to Egypt. This tour includes a four-day cruise down the Nile that will never be forgotten. We especially enjoy our visit to a Nubian Village and our opportunity to hold a Nile Crocodile in our hands!

Have you not heard of the Passion Play in Oberammergau? It’s time you did. When the plague was raging through Europe in 1632 and 1633, this little village in Germany, called Oberammergau, got together and made a covenant with God that if there would be no more deaths in their community, they would perform a play celebrating and depicting the last week of the Savior’s life every ten years. The deaths ceased and they have never broken their covenant. The first performance was in 1634–384 years ago! And it only happens now on the tens (2010, 2020, 2030 etc). More than 2,000 villagers participate in the play!
We’ve teamed up with our dear friends and partners at Morris Murdock Travel and they’ve chartered an entire river boat with Viking to provide you with this AMAZING trip. We will be starting in the beautiful city of Budapest, Hungary then visiting Melk, Austria; Salzburg, Austria; Passau, Germany; Munich, Germany then Oberammergau.
We are doing two trips to the Passion Play–this one, which is based from the charter ship on the Danube from Prague to Budapest and beyond to Vienna and other remarkable, unforgettable cities along this incredible river. The second trip follows below, which is a Discovering Bavaria Tour where we base in a small alpine village and then go out each day exploring this stunning region and then end in Oberammergau.

There is still space available on this trip–even for a four or five traveling couples group! We know you have always wanted to see ALL the significant early Church History sites and now is the time! Many of you have been to Nauvoo or just to Palmyra, or perhaps to Kirtland—but now you will have the opportunity to see all these sacred sites in one sweeping, panoramic view.
During your time on this trip, you’ll not only learn and build your faith at these church history sites so dear to the faith, you’ll have a lot of fun with the American history sites.
