The Contemporary Faith-based traveler:
Today’s faith-based travel groups are focused on destinations and often on religious sites, shrines, burial places, sacred sites, and other more traditional religious travel destinations. However, more and more of these groups are traveling together for the fellowship with other like-minded travelers. It is typical that the itineraries today, of the faith-based travelers, do include some religious heritage sites and other spiritual activities, but for leisure groups these itineraries now have a more secular approach.
With UNESCO Heritage sites, and many religious sites now focused more on tourists than religious pilgrimages, faith-based travelers are combining the historical, spiritual, and modern events and activities into their travel itineraries. They are traveling for the fun and excitement of visiting sacred and historical places with people that have the same core beliefs and practices. We hear from travelers in our groups all the time that it is more fun to travel in groups with people you know or at least have the same beliefs.
People of like-minded faiths receive inspiration and fellowship from traveling together. Friendships are strengthened and new friends are found on these journeys. People are blessed on these trips as they realize Lifelong Dreams of visiting the sacred Holy places. – and other sites and activities within these destinations.

We went to Celebration Escapes because they understand that although we want to see historical places that influenced our faith we really want to take trips with our like-minded friends to deepen our fellowship and have fun. They create itineraries that are more about fellowship than the serious religious trips. Our group likes this style a lot.

We are a church of mixed backgrounds Our congregation is non-denominational and we like to have a lot of fun together. Fellowship and love are what brings us all together. So, when we travel we love to go on trips that have a faith-base. We want to explore these sacred sites and historical landmarks but we want to have fun doing it. Celebration Escapes creates itineraries that have a great blend of serious and joyful experiences. We love what they design and orchestrate for us.

Celebration Escapes makes it so easy for our group to travel together. They handle everything and all we have to do is sign up and go. Our trips have historical & religious content but we get to see other sites and enjoy experiences that are not all religious, too.
