    A sneak peek at future tours for next year

TourMagination was founded to help Mennonites and other Anabaptists (Amish, Hutterites, Brethren in Christ, and German Baptist Brethren) to rediscover their heritage.

Our tours to Western Europe visit important historical Anabaptist sites such as Tauferhole in Switzerland—a cave where persecuted believers worshipped in secret.

We also explore the migrations of the Anabaptist and Mennonite diaspora in Russia/Ukraine, Poland, Central Asia, South America, and Mexico.
As tour members share reflections on past martyrdoms and migrations, and meet Mennonites in other parts of the world, their own faith grows.

With top-notch storytellers including Len Friesen, John Sharp, and Ayold Fanoy, TourMagination offers outstanding Anabaptist and Mennonite Heritage Tours for North Americans.
