In the Footsteps of Paul:
First Missionary Journey Tour
15-Day Religious Pilgrimage Turkey
In the Footsteps of Paul…
A pilgrimage is a rare and privileged event. Every person of faith should make such a trip a priority in one's life. However, great care is needed to make sure the experience reflects the intent of the traveler. Without careful planning, advanced preparation and attention to details, the pilgrimage can fall short of expectations. On our Pilgrimage Tour of Turkey, let the Bible come alive as you traverse this unique region with our excellent English-speaking guides, comfortable, spacious buses, and wonderful food and accommodations.
Anatolia, is where many of the events associated with Paul’s life and ministry took place. Paul was a native of Tarsus in Cilicia, one of our stops. From Antioch to Troas we will follow the routes traveled during his first journey by land. At each site we will explore the archaeological realia still remaining; in museums we will encounter the artefacts that the apostle saw and touched. As we visit sites, Paul’s First Journey will be brought to life, and with all arrangements in place, you’ll be free to simply absorb the content, let your senses take in the sights, sounds, tastes and smells, and reflect on a set of memories which will remain with you forever.
Unearth the beginnings of Christianity as we trace the footsteps of Paul in Turkey.
