Why Finis Terra?

Finis Terra pilgrimages are custom tailored to each priest and parish. We do not first organize trips and then promote them, hoping people will register. We only organize a trip in coordination with a priest and/or his staff. If you are visiting this website as an individual traveler searching for somewhere to go, we apologize. We are not the right tour company for you. Our pilgrims hear about Finis Terra pilgrimages through their parishes or their friends.

What sets us apart? Many travel companies offer many types of services, and most of them do a good job. Their customers and groups are satisfied. Finis Terra’s customers and groups are very satisfied as well, and, additionally,

… they pay a lot less for the same tours.

… they do not have to bother reading, and filling out, long legal documents with tiny letters.

… registering is easy. Send us an e-mail. No complicated forms, scans, or going to the post office.

… our pilgrims normally know other people on the tour, as they are usually from the same parish.

… our pilgrims likely know the priest on the tour, as they usually hear about the tour through him.

… the pilgrim’s connection to the priest and parish creates trust that the pilgrimage will be successful.

… our pilgrims will not spend most of the tour on a bus, in airports, or packing and unpacking their luggage when changing hotels. Our trips are focused on one or two cities and last a week. We prefer a deeper dive in a few cities rather than a “drive by” to a bunch of them. We generally limit our tours to stays at one or two hotels.
