Pilgrimage Tours to places of religious devotion in Europe and Worldwide
Established in 1961 and working for many years in conjunction with dioceses, parishes and religious groups, Joe Walsh Tours is Europe’s leading tour operator specialising in pilgrimages. Our extensive programme features regular departures to the world’s most famous Marian Shrines of Lourdes, Fatima and Medjugorje, the Holy Land and Italy.
In addition to these traditional pilgrimage destinations, we also offer a selection of departures to the most beautiful and spiritually charged Shrines in France, Spain and Poland, as well as pilgrimage itineraries covering sites connected to St Paul in Greece, Turkey, Cyprus or Malta.
We strongly believe that personal input is a vital component of a successful pilgrimage and the level of orientation and support we provide locally is second to none. We maintain a highly qualified team of guides and representatives based in Lourdes, Fatima, Medjugorje & Italy, allowing us to cover all European pilgrimage destinations with our own resources. All our pilgrimage packages include full services of dedicated representatives at all destinations.
