Can religious service reservations be made in advance, especially for Sundays?

If a tour consists of a sole-use group traveling together, then yes—we can often reserve space at your hotel or a church for religious services; however, we must be advised well in advance.


Can a pastor or church leader serve as a guest speaker on a tour?

Yes, if it is a sole-use group, we very much invite and encourage a pastor or other leader to serve as a guest speaker on a tour. Time will be provided by the Tour Director at the various sites for a guest speaker.


We look forward to providing your church or group with memories that will last a lifetime.
