MPT is conducting on an average 10+ tourist trips to various locations each year. We have great support and encouragement from various non-denominational Christian Organizations.

We are committed to ensure total customer satisfaction. The tour programs that we have conducted are strong testimonials of this commitment. We have experienced overwhelming response and customer appreciation for various tours conducted. Our customers choose us based on the reliability and dependability of our services. Our primary marketing is based on word of mouth and this helps us maintain a low cost structure that we are able to pass on to our customers in the form of lower prices for tour and cruise packages.

We are a born again Christian family-operated business and Pentecostal believers, witnessing Our Lord Jesus Christ through our business.

We welcome you to try us on your next tour trip. God Bless!
