About Enjoy Tours

Our philosophy

Turkey figures prominently into the backdrop of biblical history and the earliest church communities.

None of these places are holy sites. We’re not offering sacred pilgrimages. But, at the same time, we’d be remiss not to invite you to the deeply enriching experience of tasting and seeing the places the Bible describes to us. Throughout the Bible, God was pleased to work in real people, people who lived in real places, people who had to cross real terrain, people who spent their lives seeking to walk faithfully in real places that you can come and see.
