Travel Club

We are very excited to share with you this selection of itineraries. These have been developed from requests and feedback we have received from our pilgrims, and based on the expertise of our highly knowledgeable and passionate team, to offer you the best experiences possible for your future travels with McCabe.

Each group tour is designed with a mixture of activities and sightseeing as well as allowing for time for spiritual reflection and engagement, under the stewardship of a McCabe group leader. We work with the best local guides and pride ourselves on the interactions we have with the local communities we meet along the way. It is by getting to know the people who live there, that you truly understand the places you visit.

Our Travel Club departures have become a highlight on the McCabe Travel calendar. Giving an opportunity for McCabe Travellers to meet up with others they have journeyed with.

We welcome the participation of small groups on these holidays, so do consider recruiting a group of friends or maybe ten from your church to participate.
