About Select International Tours

Founded in 1987 by President, Edita Krunic, Select International is a leader in the Catholic pilgrimage market. The concept for the pilgrimage travel company was realized when six visionaries began to receive apparitions from the Virgin Mary in Edita’s home country of Bosnia and Hercegovina. The strong sense of prayer, faith, and hope present in Medjugorje inspired Edita to organize group trips, and Select International became the first American tour company which organized air and land packages to the remote village.

About This Trip

Our group will travel through the French countryside, via deluxe motor coach, while our Enlish-speaking French guide elaborates on the sites we pass and answers any questions that we might have. We stop for the night in Lisieux, home of St. Therese the Little Flower. We share a meal and get to know each other. The next day, following a beautiful French breakfast, we board a glamorous river cruise ship and begin our pilgrimage on the Seine river.
