Pilgrimages from the UK

With over 55 years experience organising pilgrimages, Joe Walsh Tours is Europe’s leading specialist tour operator of religious group travel.

Our pilgrimages programme covers a wide range of destinations, from the well known Marian Shrines of Lourdes, Fatima and Medjugorje to the Holy Land, Italy and some more off the beaten track Shrines in France, Spain and Poland. All these pilgrimages are fully guided and led by a Spiritual Director, allowing you to understand the historical, cultural and religious context in which events occurred and making each one of our pilgrimages an experience of a lifetime.

We offer an extensive selection of pilgrimage tours departing the UK every year. We also work closely with many parishes and schools developing tailor made itineraries that meet the specific requirements of each group. Our packages generally include flights from UK airports, hotel accommodation, private coach for all transfers and tours, various meals and the full assistance of our team of guides and representatives. We also offer overland packages travelling by coach using the ferry services available into France and Belgium.

What really has distinguished Joe Walsh Tours as the preferred tour operator for various UK dioceses, parish groups and schools is the ability to offer competitively priced packages and deliver an outstanding service. Our Pilgrimage Specialists have first-hand knowledge of all destinations and our local guides and representatives are highly qualified, ensuring that pilgrims receive the highest standard of service and orientation throughout each pilgrimage.
