Thank you for visiting our Internet site. We want to give you the opportunity to stay in touch with our travels and upcoming tours.

The emphasis of our site is on travels to Germany to follow the life of Martin Luther. If this topic is of interest to you, stay tuned and we will try to keep you posted on upcoming trips.

In the meantime you can reach us at (217) 691-1252. We are looking forward to hearing from you. You can also contact us at our e-mail address: PastorDave@Bueltmann.org.

We have been taking groups on tours since 1994. We have visited the Holy Land, Germany, Latvia, Italy, as well as an Alpine Trip which included Switzerland, Austria and Liechtenstein.  We are happy to arrange a church group tour from 12-40 people. You can read some of the comments we have received from our participants.

We would be pleased to hear from you! Please let us know what you would like to pursue and if you have any questions. We will be more than happy to help.

In brief, you should know the following about us: we began concentrating on Germany (Following Martin Luther Tours) since 2006 and have been responsible for providing outstanding tours ever since. Our fellow travelers have requested that we expand our travels, so we did the Alpine trip in 2012, the Holy Land in 2013, and Italy in 2014. 

We are now booking reservations for 2017.  We are currently offering July 10-21 and August 1-11.  If you have a small group or large group that have certain dates in mind, let us know and we will work with you.  We can now offer to take groups from 8 people to 50.  Let us know how we can help you celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation in 2017. Call Pastor Dave (217-691-1252) for more details and to make sure we still have room for you.

I just wanted to thank you again for a wonderful trip to Germany. It seems to get even better as I am home and thinking abut all of the places we saw, all of the history from each place and all the hospitality that you showed to us. I have another reason to write to you. I am wondering what is the time frame for the tour that was mentioned, to Rome?"  BB
