About McCabe Pilgrimages

Booking a pilgrimage with McCabe is to buy in to a team of enthusiastic experts. You can expect to talk to a real person and you won’t be put on hold and asked to press button four. Someone in the McCabe office will have travelled where you are going and stayed in the same hotel you are going to and they will be very happy to have a chat on any aspect of your journey.
