Choosing a destination

There are so many destinations to choose from here at Tangney Tours and our team have first-hand knowledge of all of them.

Some of the most popular group destinations that we offer are:

Although these are the most popular, we are not limited to this and organise fantastic trips to shrines around Europe and the rest of the world.

Talk to us about your group and we will be able to suggest some excellent ideas and itineraries for consideration. We can often combine tours with major religious events. Our excellent reputation enables us to secure the best accommodation, guides and transportation where others will often compromise.

We recommend you allow as much time as possible for the planning of your pilgrimage. Destinations such as the Holy Land require flights to be reserved months in advance, where a coach tour can be organised at relatively short notice. Talk to us for more advice on this.

Planning your pilgrimage

When you have chosen a destination and method of transport, we will be pleased to produce bookings forms and posters in order for you to promote the pilgrimage successfully. We can also advertise it online and in certain publications.

Your dedicated team member (click here to meet them) here at Tangney Tours will be able to liaise with you as much or as little as you require. This could be to discuss how many people have booked, any updates or special requirements, changes in the itinerary or any other elements of the pilgrimage.

Some groups also like us to help with their pre-pilgrimage planning meetings, some of which we attend or simply provide more detailed information to be distributed.
