Organise a pilgrimage or group tour
In 2023 we celebrate 40 years in the business of organising pilgrimages and tours across the world and enjoy seeing many groups return year after year – so we must be doing something right!
We work with all religious denominations, social groups, art, historical, special and general interest groups and are happy to tailor every pilgrimage or tour to the needs of each particular faith or group. Special interest groups can have special visits arranged and indulge in their passions for music, art, history and get to interact with the locals.
For our faith groups we would plan optional worship in some very special locations both indoor places of worship and natural open settings as well as joining with local congregations. Some parties would plan one or two Eucharists during their pilgrimage but others will choose a daily celebration. In the Holy Land, your focus may be the Galilean ministry or a re-creation of Holy Week in Jerusalem. You tell us what your particular interest is and we will recommend an itinerary.
You can see example group itineraries of the Holy Land here.
You can find example group itineraries to other destinations here.
The minimum group size on all of our tours is just 15 people so contact us today to start planning.

Look at some itineraries
If you browse the Our Pilgrimages section of this website you can look at some itineraries that we arrange. We are not only one of the leading operators to the Holy Land, but also have much experience in other destinations across the world. Not only for church and faith groups but social, special interest and large family groups.
Browse the selection of sample itineraries for our tours and pilgrimages all created from our more than 40 years of experience. These itineraries are created with the needs of your groups interests, requirements and budget in mind. Once you have a destination in mind our team will then work together with you to create your groups personal itinerary. Twelve to fifteen months lead in time to a pilgrimage or tour is normal but we can arrange this in much shorter time as well if you feel you have the interest. Our minimum independent group size is fifteen and generous concessions are available for the pilgrimage leaders.
We do have a tried and tested recommended programme for each destination and we will always send you this as a starting point. For instance we think ten days is ideal for a Holy Land pilgrimage with six nights spent in Jerusalem and three nights in the Galilee and ideal months to travel are February through May and September through November. Best departure days are Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Do remember that we can adapt the duration, sights visited and include as many meals and extras as you wish. At the end of each sample itinerary you will find suggestions of things to add or exchange to create special memories, transformative travel and a tour or pilgrimage that is best for your group. All hotels and itinerary options have been inspected and experienced by members of the McCabe team and our partners across the world in the countries visited.
Every January we often conduct Leaders Introductory pilgrimages to the Holy Land and occasionally to other destinations. This is absolutely the best way to prepare for a pilgrimage. Prices are heavily subsidized and eligibility is usually (but not always) restricted to clergy and their partners. Follow the link here for more details.
