about our faith-based tours

If you’re interested in visiting the most famed healing shrine in the world, Ophorus offers the option of two private tours to Lourdes. Join us on a visit to the sanctuaries where you can witness the grotto and the three churches built on site, one on top of the other. You will also trace the footsteps of Bernadette Soubirous, who was the receptor of the Marian apparitions of 1858, and visit the house of the family, including a tiny cell which they inhabited during tougher times. Our tours are private, giving you the freedom to ask your guide questions and ensuring you are given all the attention that you desire.
