Merit Group Travel

Special Interest Groups

For many travelers, the enjoyment of a trip is enhanced by travel with friends or people who will become friends. Traveling as a group creates a sense of security, structure and familiarity and provides a comfortable atmosphere to learn and experience other cultures. 

Designing custom leisure tours is our specialty.  Are you ready to plan your next family reunion or group of friends’ trip?  If your interest is in a religious pilgrimage, a battlefield tour, a destination wedding or naturalist led tours for birding and botany we can assist you in all planning stages.  Special interest photography, culinary, culture or garden tours can be custom designed for your group.
