BOOKING

Booking for the following dates:


FEB 26 - MAR 9, 2023




GROUP TRAVEL

FROM LAX


Including all transportation, flights, hotels, meals, entrance fees, the pilgrimage price for those traveling from LOS ANGELES is

$4,970*

per person, double occupancy.

*This includes all flight taxes and current fuel surcharges, but not any changes in fuel surcharges that might be added by the airline prior to the departure date.

Includes roundtrip bus from Visalia to LAX and back from LAX back to Visalia by chartered bus.

  Private Rooms

The single occupancy charge is available for an additional $1,100.   Only 5 Private rooms are available per Pilgrimage

  Local Tips

are not included in this price, and it is customary to tip the waiters $1at lunch, and $1 per day for the waiters at the hotel at the end of each hotel stay.  

The tip to the bus driver is $54 and the guide $81 per person for the entire pilgrimage.

Each does as each wishes in this area as tips are not compulsory.  The above suggestion yields a tip of about $150 per pilgrim, which is about half what other travel groups expect.
