  1. Ryan can we still sign up for the tour? Also the $1195 – obviously that doesn’t include the flight – what does it include – what other costs should we anticipate?
    (Ryan could you please send me an email)

  2. We saw Nephite Explorer tonight. It talked about an Eastern US tour led by Tim Ballard, yet there is nothing on your website about this tour. Is it no longer available? Sounded like a wonderful tour.

  3. My friend and I are interested in attending your symposium, Saturday 13 Feb 2016 in Orem and would like to register. Without having to register on line (going through Paypal and all) is there another option we can use to secure seating arrangements?

  4. Is there going to be another Eastern US Tour with Tim Ballard like the one you Previously Posted? That is one of my life long Dream Bucket list things to do. Hoping the answer is a YES.

  5. I am interested in the American Covenant tour in September. Do you have an itinerary? Do we need to fly into Boston on September 24 and out of Washington, DC, on October 2?

    • I am still interested too. Just put it out to my husband and he can’t go cause of work schedule. I’m thinking of taking my son and seeing if I can talk my sister into going. How much of a deposit do you need to put down. Assuming there are still openings… And yes, what else do we need to plan for.. Assuming we have to book flights into Boston and out of Washington DC.

      • it’s a $300 deposit and we take care of everything except meals and airfare, however I can put you in touch with and airfare specialist who gets good deals, and the breakfasts are covered by the hotel.

  6. Yes I’m interested and looking into flights. If you have my member info.. I would love to talk on the phone. I don’t want to post my number to the public.

  7. Ryan, Can you give me the referral for the flight specialist? I found a pretty good deal but want to see if he has a better option, before I book it. Also, once I book it there is no refunds, it will be a point of no returns…Literally. Ha ha

  8. Ryan, is there a number we can call to get more information on the schedule, etc. My husband and I are very interested in the American Covenant tour. Are there still openings? Other than the link to make a deposit, you can’t find any other information.
