Which Tour Style is Right for You?
TourMagination was founded to explore the roots of the Reformation and to help Mennonites and other Anabaptists (Amish, Hutterites, Brethren in Christ, and German Baptist Brethren) to rediscover their heritage. Our tours to Western Europe visit important historical Anabaptist sites such as Tauferhole in Switzerland—a cave where persecuted believers worshipped in secret. We also explore the migrations of the Anabaptist and Mennonite diaspora in Russia/Ukraine, Poland, Central Asia, South America, and Mexico. As tour members share reflections on past martyrdoms and migrations and meet Mennonites in other parts of the world, their own faith grows. With top-notch storytellers including Leonard Friesen and John Sharp, TourMagination offers the best Anabaptist and Mennonite Heritage Tours out of North America.
Holy Land Tours
Take a pilgrimage to the lands of the Bible—Israel/ Palestine, Jordan, Egypt, Greece, and Turkey—with TourMagination. Standing on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, imagining the movements of Jesus and his disciples during Passover, is a transforming experience. Visiting many other sites mentioned in the Bible, makes Scripture leap off the page and take on three dimensions. Tours that include Jordan shed new light on the life of Moses, Elijah, and other Old Testament figures. Our World of Paul tour retraces the missionary journeys of the Apostle Paul. A TourMagination distinctive is our open-minded approach to the complex land of Israel/Palestine—home to three world religions. Our tours often include interaction with Jews, Muslims, and Christians and/or visits to sites that are important to them.
Cultural Learning Tours
Curious about the world? Go deeper than the average tourist as you learn about a new location with one of our expert storytellers. Our cultural adventures usually include interacting with locals, worshipping with local Mennonites or other Christians, and visiting non-profit organizations active in an area. Many of our storytellers are Christian academics or former Christian workers who lived in the countries. They share their deep knowledge to create an engaging and immersive experience.
TourMagination visits select destinations including the Amazon Basin and Galapagos Islands, Iceland, Alaska, Antarctica, and Tanzania. Celebrate God’s creation with like-minded travelers. Enjoy adventuring in some of the most spectacular places on earth.
On a TourMagination ocean or river cruise you get the best of both worlds—the personal attention of smaller group travel plus the attractions and amenities of a large cruise line. While onboard a ship, TourMagination travelers often meet for worship and times of reflection, to play games, and to share meals. Tour members also enjoy excursions together at ports of call.
