Why the name "206 Tours"?

In the early 80's, Milanka, our founder made a pilgrimage to Medjugorje. While there, most important activity revolved around evening services and in particular specific time of 20 minutes to 6. Pilgrims, and locals alike, eagerly await for twenty minutes to six (20 to 6) PM, which is the time the alleged apparitions. It was after that trip, that the "fruits" would become "206 Tours" and since "206 Tours" number continued to show up, in the form of "Office Address", "206 Bones in the Human Body" etc, Thus... . the name was born.

Executive Leadership

Milanka Lachman, DGCHS President & Founder

In 1985 Milanka Lachman founded 206 Tours at just 27 years old after a life changing Pilgrimage to Medjugorje. While working for Yugoslav Airline in the early 80's, Milanka began helping people travel to Medjugorje, which at the time was a very small village of just 300 people who opened their doors to the pilgrims that began to visit their beautiful village. After her experience she felt called to create a company that could help others have transformational experiences as well. It was an incredible undertaking for a single mother of two with no money, no connections, no business experience, no knowledge of theology and no connections to clergy.

Milanka is happily married, has grown children and several grandchildren. She holds the title of Dame Grand Cross of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem and has built one of the nation's leading Pilgrimage companies. Of the 460,000 Pilgrims who have traveled with 206 Tours, 63,000 of the pilgrimages were completed free of charge. Her strong leadership and faith have built a beautiful network of employees, partners, clergy, and pilgrims around the world who are keeping the act of pilgrimage alive and heralding prayer, reconciliation, and peace!
