a Trip of a lifetime

The 2017 European Highlights Tour includes sites of Anabaptist history, the stunning natural beauty of the Alps, a concentration camp from WWII, castles and palaces, the perfectly preserved medieval town of Rothenberg, cathedrals, and the beautiful little canal town of Giethoorn — among many other sights.

Marvin Mast and Golden Rule Travel have done over thirty European Tours since 1980. We are pleased to again have Lewis Overholt as our tour guide this year. Lewis served in Germany for over 40 years as a pastor, mission church planter, and evangelist. He was serving in Berlin during the building of the Berlin Wall in 1961. His interests include cross-cultural communication and he speaks German fluently. He is well versed in Anabaptist History, as well as European culture, practice, and history. He has led many tours throughout the past 40 years and traveled extensively in Western Europe. He and his wife Mary have retired in Harrisonburg, Virginia but have children and grandchildren in Berlin, Germany.
