Dear Brothers and Sisters,
On behalf of all those who attended today’s tour (Hold fast to what is fine) from the Crewe North Congregation, I would like to thank you. We all thoroughly enjoyed the presentation by […], and were fascinated to learn of the origins of some of the popular customs and celebrations still practised around the world to this day. We have gained considerable insight into the letter to the Galatians, and the challenges they had in “hold(ing) fast to what is fine”.
The group sends warmest greetings, and urges you to keep up the good work !!
Warm Regards and Christian Love

Dear Meander Bible Tours

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the above tour which we took today.
Everyone agreed how good it was.  They said how very interesting and informative it was. Looking at Bible Prophecy is so faith strengthening.
Please thank [our guide] for a wonderful delivery.

Thank you so much.

Kind regards

With you in Jehovah’s service,

Your sister

(Norwich, Catton Congregation)

Hi brothers and sisters.
We have just finished our tour and we really enjoyed it.
We will never read Galatians the same way again!
And it was wonderful to connect with beloved friends in Athens and France as well as meet lots of new friends.
Thankyou so much for helping to keep us sane during these lockdown days.
With love and kind regards
[Whangaparaoa, Auckland, New Zealand]

Dear Brothers

We really enjoyed our virtual tour yesterday! Thank you so much!
Brother [] did a wonderful job of imparting the information in a clear and understandable way and everyone from Surfers Paradise congregation here on the Gold Coast of Australia, wanted to express their appreciation.
May Jehovah’s rich blessings continue upon all of you.
Warm Christian love

Hello Brothers!

I wanted to say a huge thanks for such a fantastic virtual tour and especially Bro [], as our guide, [he] did a brilliant job!
It was absolutely faith strengthening and seals the deal even more so, for Jehovah’s future prophecy to be fulfilled!
Thank you so much, for putting this together over zoom!

Dear brothers and sisters
Just wanted to say a big thank you for our tour this afternoon. Our guide was very well informed and kept us all engaged. We really appreciated the reminders of how wonderfully we are designed and created by our very thoughtful and intelligent creator Jehovah.
We will be doing another one of your tours soon hopefully.
Thank you again
Agape love

Dear brothers

This is the second virtual tour we have done and once again enjoyed every minute. How thrilling to meet with brothers and sisters from all over the world! Thank you so much for all the effort and hard work that goes into arranging these tours.
Also another reminder that we are one big family and serving the same Heavenly Father.
Thank you once again

Dear Bros.,

Our group from the Belfast FortWilliam Congregation would like to say thank you very much for the opportunity to go on the British Museum Tour 2 on Sunday. Our guide [  ] was an excellent teacher and the clarity of the visual aids were of a high standard. We all appreciated the spiritual lift it provided and we had the added surprise bonus of being joined by some of our bros. and sis. from Zimbabwe. Something we could not experience under normal conditions.

Keep up the good work, Belfast-Fortwilliam

…and another message for the same tour….

Good afternoon brothers and sisters

[ ] and I who are with Sunnyside congregation in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe would like to express our most sincere gratitude and thanks for the amazing opportunity we were privileged to have on Sunday 31May 2020 with [ ] as our guide. It was wonderful to join brothers and sisters from the Belfast congregation as well.

At this time, with all the stress that is out there, it is always so uplifting to get spiritual food at just the right time. We were and still are so encouraged when we see the fulfillment of the Bible prophecies and have had our confidence in Jehovah, the God of true prophecy, strengthened enormously.

Thank you and please pass on our warm greetings and Christian love to all involved. A special thank you to [our guide] please.

With warm Christian love

Your sisters

Thank you for the awesome and informative virtual tour 13 on Sunday night.

Everybody who attended from Australia said it was so interesting and faith strengthening.

We very much appreciate all the effort that has gone into making this available to us in Australia.

Thank you so much!

Christian love,

(Kingsley congregation, Perth)

Please pass on a thank you from our entire group (Canada) to our tour guide this past Monday for Tour # 2.  The theme was so encouraging – and [the guide] was very knowledgeable and really helped the information come to life.  It motivated me to pull my Isaiah’s Prophecy books back off the shelf these past few days, and watch the Hezekiah drama again!

We appreciate everything your entire “team” is doing in providing these faith strengthening tours for the benefit of brothers around the world!  While they would always be of benefit…they have become crucial during the times we all find ourselves in now.

United in love,

Toronto – Canada

Dear brothers and sisters,

Thank you so much for this virtual tour.

We did an actual museum tour with you earlier in the year, but several from our group couldn’t attend due to advancing age or Ill health. But today we had 7 able to join us who wouldn’t usually be able to make the trip.
So it is a great idea to encourage these ones as well. I hope that maybe you can continue it even after lockdown if there is a demand for it.
Thank you All for your work and [] our tour guide for his enjoyable presentation.
Christian love
Feltham Congregation

Dear Brothers

We just wanted to express our appreciation to you and [Guide] for our Virtual Bible Tour.
Although most if not all of us have done the literal tour it was lovely to do it again from the comfort of our own armchairs.
Many appreciated not having to walk around and upstairs in the building !!
THANKYOU for making this provision available. It provide us with needed encouragement and was truly uplifting.
We hope to arrange another Tour for our group soon
We hope you are all staying well, safe and alert.
Brotherly love and greetings.
Longford Congregation, Ireland

Hi Brothers and Sisters

We just had an excellent virtual tour with [Guide] this morning.
Thank you so much for the informative and faith strengthening outline.  [Guide] presented very well and all were encouraged.  Our group ranged from ages 3 to 85 and we all learnt something new!

A group from the Belfast Fortwilliam congregation enjoyed a ‘virtual’ Tour 2 – ‘Jehovah is a God of True Prophecy’. They seemed to enjoy it, their feedback is….

 

Good afternoon Brothers and Sisters,

On behalf of all who took the virtual tour this morning I would like to thank all involved including our guide _____.

Dear brothers
Titchfield congregation would like to thank you very much for the amazing virtual tour. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and were reminded of Jehovah’s amazing qualities through his creation. And another reminder of his amazing earthly organisation, supplying spiritual food no matter what.
Your brothers and sisters
Titchfield congregation

Clearly, word has got out! Demand for our ‘virtual’ tours has been very great, with requests for tours from Jehovah’s servants all over the world – from Alaska to New Zealand!

We are doing our very best to schedule all of the booking requests, but as the sheer volume has been a little unexpected there will be some delay in our response. Please be patient – we hope the tours will be worth the wait!

We have been developing and testing “Virtual Tours” in both the Natural History Museum (London) and the British Museum.

These have been very well received, and we starting to take bookings for the tours now. Just to explain, the “Virtual Tours” are not just a streamed video, but interactive with a “live” guide using Zoom. Your guide will be a very experienced tour guide with decades of experience in conducting Bible tours. They are unpaid volunteers, and are happy to conduct the “Virtual Tours” for their spiritual family and interested ones.

If you are interested in arranging a “virtual tour” in the British Museum or Natural History Museum, please email or phone us. At this time, we are offering the following tours in this format…

British Museum

Tour 2Jehovah Is A God of True Prophecy

Tour 13Hold Fast to What is Fine

Natural History Museum

Tour 14 – “In an Awe-Inspiring Way I am Wonderfully Made”

Tour 15 – “His Invisible Qualities Are Clearly Seen”

On Saturday we tested presenting a “virtual” tour with a live commentary to a group from Tottenham Hale congregation in London.

Unfortunately, their original tour in the Natural History Museum was one that was cancelled due to the current circumstances.

We received feedback following their “virtual tour” from the group today…..

______________________________________

Dear brothers and sisters at Meander,

On behalf of our group I just wanted to express how much we enjoyed the virtual tour on Saturday. It was a resounding success and we want to thank you so much for making it possible.

My group really loved it, so much so we would be very interested in doing tour number 15 as a virtual tour if it’s available. Please let us know if we could book for that and how much that would be.

Due to a sound issue at the very beginning of the tour we missed our tour guides name. Please pass on our thanks and appreciation for his hard work.

Thanks again for providing such faith strengthening tours in these last of the last days.

Warm Christian love,

Tottenham Hale congregation


If you are interested in arranging a “virtual tour” in the Natural History Museum, please email or phone us. At this time, we are offering both Tour 14 – “In an Awe-Inspiring Way I am Wonderfully Made” and Tour 15“His Invisible Qualities Are Clearly Seen” using Zoom. We hope to make “virtual tours” of the British Museum available too in the near future.

Further to our recent post about Coronavirus and the suspension of all our tours at least until the 1st June, the British Museum and the Natural History Museum have announced that their buildings are closed until further notice.

We are sorry to announce that all British Museum, Natural History Museum and other tours scheduled up to 1st June 2020 are now cancelled.

We have been carefully monitoring the situation with regard to Coronavirus, and you will probably be aware of the far reaching precautions implemented by Jehovah’s organisation. We have decided to apply these principles to our tours recognising the protective care that underpin the decisions made.

Should you have any tours booked within the next few months our office staff will be contacting you – if not already done so. It is our hope we can re-commence very soon, but we will wait for further advice from the secular and theocratic authorities. If you have a booking for June 2020 and after, please continue to check this website for the latest information and please ensure you contact us before making any travel arrangements.

Please note that the telephone and email systems are not manned outside hours.
