5 Benefits of Traveling with 206 Tours Rather Than on Your Own

When considering a pilgrimage, one may ask what the benefits are of traveling with a dedicated pilgrimage company instead of planning the trip on their own. While we can think of many, here are 5 reasons why your pilgrimage experience will be greatly enriched by traveling with 206 Tours: 

1. Catholic Priest and Sacraments 

The most special part of a 206 Tours pilgrimage is that we are always accompanied by a Catholic priest. This gives our pilgrims the opportunity to attend daily Mass as they journey through the most sacred locations in the world. The spiritual fatherhood of our priests allows for each pilgrimage to be one that is deeply reflective and prayerful so that you can return home stronger in your faith. 

2. Lifelong Friendships 

The best things in life are those that we can share with others. Having been in the pilgrimage business for over 38 years, we are blessed to have the most wonderful pilgrims travel with us. When you join a 206 Tours pilgrimage, you become part of a community of thousands of other men and women who have forged lifelong friendships while traveling with us. Enrich your pilgrimage experience by traveling with a group of likeminded believers who love the Lord and one another. Your new best friend might just be waiting for you on your next 206 Tours pilgrimage! 

3. Professional Local Tour Guides 

Since our founding in 1985, 206 Tours has been establishing strong relationships with dedicated local tour guides who have a thorough knowledge of the regions they serve. From speaking the local language to showing you the best restaurant for lunch, these men and women are deeply invested in making sure that you have an authentic and enjoyable experience. As you learn about the saints and shrines of their culture, our guides will share in detail the history of each location so that you can fully appreciate its beauty and significance. Also, you never have to worry about getting lost! 

4. Detailed Itineraries 

With over 2,000 years of Church history throughout the world, there are so many places to see and experience. If you are planning a pilgrimage on your own to an unfamiliar country, one can easily become overwhelmed by wondering where they should visit and how to get there. That is why 206 Tours carefully crafts detailed itineraries that bring you to the most important sites and shrines of each location you visit. We know that every pilgrimage is a dedication of your time and money. We are committed to making sure you get the most out of every day abroad while still having time to rest and enjoy quality time with your fellow travelers. In addition, 206 Tours covers all sightseeing and admissions fees as per the itinerary.
