Our journey to Fatima and Lourdes was a trip of a lifetime,thank you Catholic Journeys. The trip was well organized and professionally run. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable; she knew everything and was fluent in English, Portuguese, Spanish and French. She was very personal and answered all of our questions. Having a priest on the trip opened up places that would not be accessible to just lay people. Fr. .Carl offered private masses each day in magnificent chapels and cathedrals, it was wonderful. Fatima and Lourdes was all that we thought it would be, it did not disappoint. However, the several stunning and sacred towns we visited along the way made the trip extra special. Again, this was the pilgrimage and journey of a lifetime. Thank you.

John and I would like you to know how enjoyable and interesting our tour guide and bus driver made our trip.

Anna knew 4 languages and she traveled with us through 3 countries. She knew many people and she could show our small group many things on the tour and some other interesting sites. She was always on time and always courteous. She could answer all our questions. Her tour was well planned with our stops along the way even the lunch spots and places to buy souvenirs. We would highly recommend Anna on all your future tours.

Paolo was our driver. He did an excellent job. They had perfect chemistry. You could tell that this team has worked together many times and they were pros. He was very courteous and helpful. He was always on time. We highly recommend him on your future tours.

John and I have been N.O. tour guides for years. We can really appreciate a team that works so well and is so professional. There is nothing I would have changed and we highly recommend this tour if Anna and Paolo are doing it.

We also enjoyed Fr. Carl. He was young and enthusiastic. His masses were very enjoyable with well thought out homilies. He mixed well with all the pilgrims from the young to the old. He participated in all the events (masses, celebrations, walks, prayers, etc.). We were so proud to have our priest standing shoulder to shoulder with the other priests at the religious sites. We enjoyed eating with him and our conversations with him. He was always the first one down and ready to go each day. He came prepared with all the things he needed to be our spiritual director.

Solo Traveller

From the point of view of a Spiritual Director, this was the perfect trip! We started in Fatima, with the Blessed Mother’s messages of conviction and conversion, and ended in Lourdes, at the healing waters of the Grotto. Along the way, we prayed with the great spiritual figures, St. Teresa of Avila, St. John of the Cross, and St. Ignatius of Loyola. On the practical side, our guide was excellent, the hotels were comfortable and the food was delicious. All of the details were taken care of by Jimmy and Fr. Paul at Catholic Journeys.
