Turkey Tours
& Cruises


Prepare yourself for a journey to the lands of ancient treasures and Christian history. Join others in fulfilling the dream of walking where the apostles walked. Each of our Turkey tours is led by a local guide who is an expert on the historical, cultural, scenic, and spiritual history of this ancient country. Imagine walking through the lands of the Churches of Revelation with visits to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea. Some packages include touring of Cappadocia, Konya, Istanbul, Troy, and Izmir (among other locations). If you’re looking to take a longer journey, and an Aegean cruise, consider continuing on to Greece on one of our Footsteps of Paul and John tours.


Below is a list of various Turkey tour packages for the Evangelical Protestant passenger departing year-round.
