Seniors Seek Faith-Based Travel

More and more travel companies are catering to the desires of senior travelers who find that their interests lie in Faith-Based Spiritual Travel & Tour Packages. Faith-based travel is the perfect way to build community by intimately exploring the roots and stories of one’s faith with fellow believers. The power of being in the presence of a historical manuscript or standing in the very places where the stories of scripture unfolded can be a moving experience. Faith-Based Travel deepens faith, enriches life, builds fellowship and inspires  community. Whether you are interested in developing your own personal faith, or simply want to experience a bit of history coming alive, faith-based travel provides vacation options that appeal to seniors of all ages.

Globus – Cosmos

On a Globus Religious Travel vacation, you’ll explore the roots of your faith, walk in the footsteps of your spiritual leaders, and have your most cherished beliefs come to life. Tours have been honed by more than eight decades of experience and a passion for religious travel.They offer what they call “A spiritual journey that feels like a vacation.” It’s a great means of visiting some of the major religious sites of the world such as St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, Caesarea, Trinity in Dublin, Meteora Rocks in Greece, the Basilica of Sacre Coeur in Paris and the Prado Museum in Madrid.  Cosmos Religious vacations feature the best and most popular faith-based itineraries—and when there’s a special trip or destination, Globus-Cosmos can customize a tour for as few as 20 people.

About the EO Christian Travel Company

Since 1974, Educational Opportunities has been dedicated to providing quality Christian travel programs at an affordable price. Over the years, more than 250,000 Christians have traveled on the various faith-based tours. Lectures, study books, and specialized guiding are the pioneering hallmarks of EO’s development. Today, many companies have copied the EO educational approach to faith-based travel.

Faith-Based Tours Gain Seniors’ Attention

USA Today chimes in with more information for seniors of faith who wish to take part in a pilgrimage to see shrines such as Lourdes in France and Fatima in Portugal.

Maybe a Christian Cruise would be of interest to you

Maybe a cruise would fit your interests and TAD Travel Services offers some great options. TAD itineraries encourage you to visit and learn more about the “faith of our fathers,” as well as enrich your life personally.  TAD can customize any itinerary for senior travelers, from the Old Testament to the New Testament, from the Biblical lands of Jesus to the revered Marian Shrines of Europe, from 4000 BC to present day, from Mt. Nebo where Moses saw the Promised Land
to the missionary journeys of the Apostle Paul, to the healing waters of Lourdes.

A Christian Bus Tour

Christian Bus Tours are becoming a popular option for senior travelers. This can include travel to historic sites, Christian churches and organizations, or museums. Some Christian Bus Tours travel to various religious events or festivals. Others take part in humanitarian or missionary efforts. Still others travel to secular destinations but offer the company of fellow Christian travelers.

A bus tour is often cheaper than other types of vacations like cruises or train trips. The itinerary is pre-planned by the organization operating the tour so you don’t have to worry about deciding what sites to visit or getting lost while trying to visit them. Christian bus tours are usually family-friendly and can be a great way to travel with kids or grandkids.

I invite you to “surf” a bit more with BING… there are many more options. May you have a blessed journey.  jeb
