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 three 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 three 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?
This tour described below is designed to be taken as the 2-day tour. Please do not request only specific portions for a reduced rate. Discounted parking for Oasis tour groups is available right next to where the bus departs and returns in Brooklyn Heights, details for which will be included once your reservation is confirmed. 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.
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 (not included in cost) and use the restrooms. The exact departure time varies slightly each day depending on the tour times Bethel grants, but will be clearly communicated to you in your reservation.
The self-guided Warwick exhibitions require an advanced reservation. Please do not make your own reservations. We make the reservation for all of 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 (not included in the cost). We return to Brooklyn Heights in the late afternoon.
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. The exact departure time varies slightly each day depending on the tour times Bethel grants us, but will be clearly communicated to you in your reservation. 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. The bus then returns to Brooklyn Heights in the late afternoon or early evening, 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. There is a public parking garage in Brooklyn Heights and 2 subway stations 1 block from the pick-up spot.
COST: $200 adults / $175 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 are sorry but your deposit is not refundable if you cancel within 60 days of the tour date.
Oasis reserves all time slots for these Bethel tours. The gourmet Asian 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, participation for a certain date is limited to a point where we do not even cover our costs. Even in instances like this, we almost always continue as planned. In the rare 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!
