Those of us with Oasis here in New York consider it a precious privilege to be in the company of so many faithful ones at Bethel over the years. One dear friend who spent over 70 years at Bethel affectionately referred to the 3 Bethel locations as “The Golden Triangle.” His life story is in the w01 11/1 pp. 19-20. For many years, our tour program including Brooklyn, Wallkill & Patterson was called The Golden Triangle Tour.
Many have expressed deep appreciation for the Warwick Wagon tour program and how easy it made the visit in the comfort of a new bus with an encouraging program on board and a pleasant visit to the Village of Warwick. But we constantly get requests for an arrangement to visit all 3 complexes. We are happy to make the following dates available for the complete Golden Triangle Tour; including Warwick, Wallkill & Patterson! Please click on the date you would like to request seats:

What is The Golden Triangle Tour program?
Please note that timing varies slightly each day depending on the tour times Bethel grants us.
This tour is available as described below and should be taken as the 2-day tour that it is.
WEDNESDAY: Bus departs from Brooklyn Heights early in the morning and proceeds non-stop to the World Headquarters of Jehovah’s Witnesses at Warwick, New York. You can come early and have breakfast at the restaurant and use the restrooms.
PLEASE NOTE: Discounted parking for Oasis tour groups is available in Brooklyn Heights which you will be informed of. If you would like a list of nearby hotels, many in walking distance, you may request a list from us.
It is not possible to tour the self-guided Warwick exhibitions without a reservation which must be made far ahead of time. We make the reservation for our groups. Your experienced and spiritually mature guides are brothers who lovingly make the entire day as encouraging as possible with a lively program on the bus. After touring Warwick Bethel, we stop for lunch on the way back to Brooklyn at either Warwick Village or Paramus Mall, NJ. You may select the restaurant of your choice to dine as you please. Late afternoon return to Brooklyn.
THURSDAY: Bus departs from Brooklyn Heights early in the morning with a brief stop at a large roadside service area with refreshments, fast-food breakfast items and restrooms. After touring the exciting Wallkill Printery & U.S. Branch Offices, we will have an all-you-can-eat gourmet Asian buffet lunch which is included in the tour costs. Then we proceed to the Patterson Educational Center for a thrilling tour of the complex that contributes so much to the theocratic education of God’s people. A program with original and unique video interviews we have made over the years with long-time Bethelites will enhance our time on the bus. Late afternoon or early evening return to Brooklyn depending on traffic.
CONFIRMATION: Once your deposit is received and you are confirmed, the final details for your Golden Triangle Tour will be sent out a few weeks before the tour dates. If you need lodging to be near the bus departure location in Brooklyn Heights, we can send you a list of local hotels in the Brooklyn area, most of which are quite new. Just let us know if you need one. There is a public parking garage in Brooklyn Heights and 2 subway stations 1 block from the pick-up spot.
[We are sorry but your deposit is not refundable if you cancel within 30 days of the tour date. If you find a replacement, the deposit may be applied to them.]
COST: $200 adults / $165 age 12 or under. The 2-day tour program includes the new bus with WiFi, charging stations, restroom, and insurance mandated by the Branch. The driver’s tip and all tolls are covered. We make all the Bethel tour reservations that are now required. The gourmet Oriental buffet on Thursday is also included in the cost. Every effort has been made to make this encouraging experience as affordable as possible. At times when participation in a certain bus program date is limited, we do not even cover our costs but we almost always continue as planned. In the event a Golden Triangle date must be cancelled or rescheduled, you are entitled to a full refund of your deposit.
We look forward to seeing you on The Golden Triangle Tour!
