A Bible Tour of Greece
Our 2006 BEL Greece Tour is Sold Out!
We'll travel, fellowship, sightsee, and study Scripture at biblical and historical locations including Athens, Philippi, Macedonia, at Mount Olympus, Thessalonica, Berea, and Delphi! Then we'll sail across the Aegean Sea on a 3-day cruise visiting Patmos (where John was exiled), Rhodes, and land in Asia for a tour of Turkey's most extraordinary archaeological sight, Ephesus! And back in Greece, will go to Corinth, the Acropolis, the Parthenon, and see where Paul preached at on Mars Hill! The cost is your airfare to Athens (around $1,000 and we will be happy to help you book your flight), plus $2,150 which covers most others costs (see details below)!
To select a great tour guide, Bob called a friend at Answers in Genesis, since they've toured Greece recently, and we're happy to announce that we've booked Costas Tsevas, who comes highly recommended by AIG as an excellent Christian tour guide! Throughout the tour, Costas and Bob Enyart will work together to teach and edify the group!
