Here are some answers to frequently asked questions. You might also like to browse our Fact Sheets for more details.
Do you use Christian Tour Guides?
As a Christian company we aim to provide quality Christian tours to Europe. We have spent many years developing relationships with Christian tour companies, ministries, tour guides, churches, and attractions.
- Our Tour Hosts are Christians, and many of them are pastors, or Christian history professors. They lead devotions during the tour and teach along the way. Some of the tours are more study-focused and others are more of a vacation.
- Our Tour Directors are there to make sure that the tour runs smoothly from start to finish. They liaise with hotels, restaurants and local guides and take care of all the practical details. They also share cultural insights. Some of the tour directors are Christians, but it’s not a prerequisite.
- The Local Guides take groups on walking tours in their towns to places that we request and they share their local knowledge. Some of the local guides are Christians, but it’s the tour host’s role to talk about the spiritual significance of places that we visit.
How much are the gratuities?
Your tour price includes tips for the local guides, group meals, baggage handling, and group transfers. It’s customary to express your appreciation to the tour director and driver and we provide envelopes in your final packet with suggested amounts. We recommend $5 per person per day for the tour director, and $4 per person per day for the driver. You don’t need to pay tips for the arrival and departure days. Here is a quick tip calculator:
Total length of tour 9 day 10 day 11 day 12 day 13 day 14 day Tour Director ($5 per person per day) $35 $40 $45 $50 $55 $60 Driver ($4 per person per day) $28 $32 $36 $40 $44 $48 SUGGESTED TOTAL $63 $72 $81 $90 $99 $108
How much should I budget for meals?
All our tours include a large daily breakfast, so you probably won’t want a big lunch. We recommend budgeting around $10-$15 per person for a snack lunch, including a drink. The cost of the evening meal will depend on what type of restaurant you choose. We recommend budgeting around $20-$25 per person for a 2 course meal, including a drink. Your hotel and your tour director can make restaurant suggestions for you.
Can you help me book my flights?
As soon as your tour is a guaranteed departure, you are welcome to contact us about flight arrangements. Please fill out the Book a Flight form, which includes making sure we have a copy of your passport.
What's a 'Single Supplement'?
All our tour prices are based on 2 people sharing, so there is a surcharge if there’s only one person in a room.
What if I want to arrive a day or two early, or stay longer?
We offer pre- and post-tour nights on all our tours on request. We can also arrange for airport transfers.
Can I pay by wire transfer?
If you would prefer to pay by wire transfer, please use the following account details. There is a $20 surcharge to cover bank fees.
