Our Story

FJ Tours, LLC was established in 2005, but its roots go further back to the Great Jubilee year of 2000 when its founders led their first pilgrimage tour to Italy.  During that tour and a subsequent one in 2001, they met and became friends with an experienced Italian tour leader, whom together with a friend, another Italian tour professional proposed joining forces to plan and operate pilgrimages and tours... "because we can do it better".

Together, the quartet successfully planned and operated their first pilgrimage tour to Rome and Sicily in 2002, and successive pilgrimages and tours to Italy in 2003, 2004 and 2005.

In September 2005, recognizing the need to formalize their activities, the U.S. member of the quartet founded FJ Tours, LLC.  Since then, we have conducted pilgrimages and tours to Italy, Lourdes, Malta, Poland, Portugal, and the 2010 Oberammergau Passion Play that included Austria and Germany.

Our specialty is Italy and we pride ourselves on retaining the most experienced, professional and engaging Italian tour leaders and local guides.  We have a passion for Italy and we love introducing and sharing that passion and everything Italian... from its beauty, its people, its history, its culture, and last but not least, its food and wine, with our clients.  Andiamo!
