Harvest Pilgrimages Adds New Departures As the Canonasation Tours Are Selling Out
Harvest Pilgrimages, official tour operator for the canonisation celebrations of Mary MacKillop, has reported an “overwhelming” response to the Canonisation Pilgrimage Tours. Harvest has released a total of 24 group tour departures around the event including Rome only and other destination in Italy, France, Scotland and the Holy Land and already 7 of the tours have sold out.
“Bookings have been incredible and to support the demand we have now added a new departure for the Saints of Italy Tour as well as one new departure for the Holy Land Tour,” Harvest Pilgrimages managing director Philip Ryall said. “We expect over 2000 will be travelling with Harvest Pilgrimages and over 5000 Australians in Rome for the Canonisation” said Ryall.
All inclusive packages start from the 4 night/ 6 day ‘Rome Express’, priced from $3190 and the 6 night/ 8 day ‘Rome Pilgrimage’ from $3590, which are the official canonisation packages, through to a 15 day ‘Scottish Heartland’ tour tracing Mary’s heritage priced from $5990 and a 17 day ‘The Holy Land’ tour priced from $6350. All packages include airfares, accommodation, dinners, breakfasts and expert guides plus more.
