If you have the privilege of being accepted as an approved delegate or if you’ve been assigned to any of the conventions recently announced, please keep us in mind. We have extensive experience operating tours in the countries listed Above and are ready to assist you with your trip of a life lifetime.
With the new program of having each delegate make their own arrangements in harmony with the local Branch Countries/Cities direction for a seven or eight night stay in the convention city, BCT will be concentrating on options for pre or post convention excursions.
Pre or Post Convention Tours Outside the Convention City:
“While some may choose to attend the convention only (and two or three additional days of association with the local brothers), many also take advantage of such a trip to include sightseeing in other areas. You can arrange such excursions on your own or with a travel agency of your choice, keeping in mind that in the convention city you must use the Approved Hotel List provided by the branch office. However, many enjoy such excursions in the company of fellow believers.”
NOTE: BCT’s optional tours and excursions are scheduled so as not to interfer with the Theocratic Program and local host city arrangements.
IMPORTANT NOTE: All BCT excursions that are in conjunction with international conventions are for delegates and non-delegates alike.
Some of the optional tours that are in conjunction with and in addition to International Conventions are as follows (subject to change as more information is available):
