Are you planning a group?

Religious Travel
We offer group tours throughout Europe, Asia, South America, North America and South America. Choose from a variety of tours that offer transportation by motor coach, rail or ship. There are also many tours to suit all budget types and for all age groups including school groups and senior citizen travel. The choices do not end there either, there are also special interest tours such as Art, Music, Culinary tours, Pilgrimages and adventure travel.

Are you interested in other Religious Tours or Church Group Travel?
We invite you to review our itineraries and consider making plans for your future pilgrimage. We are glad to assist you with every detail and concern you may have, whether you have a small party joining one of our scheduled departures or would like a private customized tour with your own bus.

We will help you plan your day-by-day itinerary, book the most convenient and economical flights from your hometown area, and suggest the most effective ways of promoting your pilgrimage to your parishioners.

There are several ways to work with us on your next pilgrimage:

A: Book one of our scheduled departures
This option works best when the itinerary and dates are most convenient and your group is too small to require a private bus.

B: Book one of our existing itineraries "as is" with a departure date of your choice
You may have your own bus and choose your own departure date, at the published rate, with a minimum of 30 paying pilgrims per bus. A private "sole use" bus can be arranged for less than 30 paying pilgrims with the appropriate price adjustment.

C: Your own customized itinerary
Should your group prefer a specific itinerary which differs from our scheduled pilgrimages, we will be glad to create a customized one for you. We can customize any itinerary for groups from 15 to 500+ pilgrims. Tours may be operated with any number of pilgrims as per person rates reflect the actual size of the group. In addition to the holy sites and shrines featured on our site, for custom groups we can provide services anywhere else in the world.

With several options available, we guarantee to deliver the best value and highest quality services at the most competitive rates.

Our hotels are of the highest standards within their category and are always conveniently located. Our tour escorts and local guides are regarded as the best in the industry, and are familiar with Catholic traditions and history, fluent in English, and very knowledgeable about their localities.

There is a nice balance of included meals and "free" nights on all of our tours, allowing pilgrims to taste local cuisine and flavors. Our itineraries are moderately paced, enabling more time at the most historic sites and locales. Most overnight stays are 2 nights, and 1-night stays are limited only when necessary. At several locations we feature longer stays of 3 nights.
