Biblical Tours in Turkey
Every year we get more and more inquiries for Biblical Tours in Turkey as a lot of people have recently discovered the important role these lands played in the history of Christianity. Therefore, for this type of tours we carefully choose guides who have good knowledge of Bible and Christian history.
While in Turkey, our guests can visit many magnificent churches, some nearly as old as Christianity itself, and can retrace the footsteps of Saints Peter and Paul from the Biblical city of Antioch to the underground churches of Cappadocia.
Many of the most important events in Christian history occurred in Turkey. Born in Tarsus, the Apostle Paul spread the word of Jesus Christ across Anatolia. On Turkey’s Eastern Mediterranean coast is Antakya, known in biblical times as Antioch. This ancient city was home to the first important Christian community, founded in 42 AD by St. Paul. Jesus’ followers were first called “Christians” in Antioch and from here Christianity spread to the world.
