Day 1

Welcome Aboard! Settle back, relax and enjoy a leisurely drive to "The Bluegrass State," Kentucky for the start of an exceptional tour of biblical proportions! After checking into the Holiday Inn Riverfront in Covington, Kentucky for the next two nights, we are treated to a delicious buffet dinner at the hotel.


Day 2

After a buffet breakfast, we depart for the Queen City Riverboat in Dayton, Kentucky. It's "All Aboard!" for a celebration of fun and inspiration as we embark on our special Gospel Brunch Cruise. Enjoy a festive and fun atmosphere filled with good fellowship and harmonious melodies while you dine on a savory buffet brunch served against spectacular views of Cincinnati's skyline from the water. Come sing along, tap along, clap along and lift your voice to the heavens while enjoying the performance of many of your favorite gospel songs, including: "Put Your Hand in the Hand," "How Great Thou Art," "I Believe," "You Will Never Walk Alone," "Go Tell It On the Mountain" and many more. Following our brunch cruise, we depart for Williamstown, Kentucky and The Ark Encounter, a full-size Noah's Ark experience built according to the dimensions given in the Bible. The largest wooden timber-framed structure in the world, The Ark Encounter is a one-of-a-kind historically themed attraction. Spanning 510 feet long, 85 feet wide, and 51 feet high, this modern engineering marvel will amaze the young and old. From the moment you step inside the Ark you will experience the pages of the Bible like never before and you'll be entertained and educated by the jaw-dropping exhibits. Also enjoy a visit with the friendly animals in the zoo. Explore The Ark's three levels - beginning with the first level depicting Before the Flood; the 2nd level depicting During the Flood; and conclude with the 3rd level depicting After the Flood. See hundreds of different displays including: Noah's study, living quarters, cages, storage vessels, recreations of how Noah and his family may have lived, animals, and even an animatronics version of Noah that will answer your questions. There is so much to see and do that you will be left both amazed and awestruck by this one-of-a-kind-in-the-world experience! A tasty buffet dinner is included at Emzara's Kitchen, adjacent to the Ark. After an astonishing day of entertainment and sightseeing, we return to our hotel in Covington for a good night's sleep.

Day 3

After a buffet breakfast we settle back, relax and enjoy the scenic drive back east to Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Following our check-in into the Best Western Eden Resort & Suites for the night, you will have time to sit, relax and freshen up before we gather for a delicious prime rib buffet dinner at Arthur's Terrace, a perennial favorite of Gunther Tours travelers, located at the hotel.

Day 4

After a buffet breakfast at your leisure, we depart for the Sight & Sound Millennium Theatre in Strasburg, Pennsylvania. Upon our arrival, we take our reserved seats and experience the greatest rescue story of all time! "JESUS" is the action-packed musical stage adventure that takes you on a miraculous journey alongside the most famous person to ever walk the earth, and the everyday people whose lives he changed forever. While JESUS' story may be familiar, his actions are unexpected. He befriends outcasts and heals the hurting. He challenges social norms and confronts hypocrisy. He sets sail with fishermen and reasons with religious scholars. And the lives he touches will never be the same. From the streets of Jerusalem to the raging Sea of Galilee, there's no place - and no person - that his love can't reach! After the show we enjoy a delicious family style lunch at Hershey Farm Restaurant. Following lunch, you will have time to visit the Hershey Farm bakery and gift shops before we depart for home taking with us fond memories of our tour of biblical proportions!
