Come and restore your spirit! Experience some of the amazing sites from the Bible on this special Pilgrimage Voyage with fellow Christians. This Bible Tour and Cruise will allow you to personally and spiritually experience a journey to some of the most important Christian sites in Greece and Turkey. We begin our tour in Athens, Corinth and Cenchrea then sail on to Thessaloniki, where John wrote two Epistles and founded the area’s first church, and onto Kavala (Philippi) where Paul preached one of his first sermons in Europe, baptized the first Christian in Europe, and was imprisoned. Next we sail to Istanbul, Turkey with such jewels as the Hagia Sofia. Then onto to Dikili and Kusadasi, which is near to Ephesus, an archeological wonder and one of the best-preserved, most extensive ancient sites in the Mediterranean. Next, the blessed island of Patmos, this is where John wrote the Book of Revelations in a cave on a mountain side grotto. The last stop we visit will be Syros before returning to Athens. This special Pilgrimage Voyage is designed to deepen your faith and restore your spirit.

To see Biblical sites in which Paul ministered as well as see sites of some of the churches of Revelation was an opportunity of a lifetime. The Bible teaching was absolutely outstanding. Of course, being on a sailing ship was delightful as well. I highly recommend a Footsteps of Paul.

The trip broadened my perspective on Paul’s journeys and the Star Clipper was a wonderful way to travel to the port cities. This was on my “bucket list” for several years until the right itinerary came along (extended to Thessaloniki, Philippi, and Berea), and I was not disappointed!
— Kris K.
This was a well-coordinated trip. Everything was taken care of from the time we boarded the ship until the final breakfast in the hotel in Istanbul. I would recommend this company to everyone who so desired to travel as we did.
— Ruth T.
Great way to vacation and explore the Apostle Paul’s adventures spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

We truly enjoyed our trip Following the Footsteps of Paul with Living Passages! We were excited to have journeyed to so many significant places from his missionary trips and were also blessed by the fellowship with other pilgrims on this journey! Living Passages took care of every detail, and it was an elegant, meaningful and unforgettable experience! Thank you to Living Passages!

Everything was wonderful, and first class. Hotels and ship were top of the line. Our Greek Orthodox guide, Sayat was fantastic. So much knowledge and history and enthusiasm! Pastor Lutzer’s teachings were much enjoyed and enlightening. Rebecca is a sweetheart.
The city of Ephesus was unbelievable and the dinner at the library was remarkable. Santorini was such a beautiful island. Rhodes was interesting. Acropolis and Parthenon plus Corinth had amazing teachings. What a blessing!
— Roger and Carole
Rhonda was wonderful–very accessible and always working to make sure trip was good for everyone. The local guide we had in Rhodes and in Turkey were two of the best guides we have ever had!
