A second pastor from the same church may travel at the spouse price, but only two pastors per church. While we do our very best at making sure all items listed in your itinerary are included, there are times when conditions beyond our control affect your program/itinerary, including but not limited to air carrier changes, delays, weather, political climate, time constraints, or changes by your tour leader and tour guide. This trip is not for retired pastors, only active/ordained clergy intending to bring a group back. Church affiliation is required when registering online. The above pricing is based on double occupancy, with two people sharing a room. When you return with a group of your own within 24 months of this trip, with a minimum group of 20+ participants, the tour company will reimburse you $1595 of the initial tour price, excluding taxes and gratuities.
