Travel Tours

The Travel Committee organizes travel tours for UMRA members that are educational and provide an opportunity to meet new members and socialize. We try to plan two tours a year, based on the results of the 2019 member trip survey and new requests.  

We are currently working with SmarTours, a not-for-profit travel company, which offers private group tours that include in the cost: informative lectures; special “behind the scenes experiences; enrichment activities; cultural events and performances; a group leader through the tour handling all the logistics; 24-hour assistance for medical and other medical emergencies.

With the ability to travel again, we have planned the following tours:

  • Along the Douro: Portugal's Best-Kept Secrets:  May 4–14, 2022
  • Treasurers of Portugal:  September 19–29, 2022
  • Majestic Morocco: November 1–12, 2022
  • Spectacular Greece with Island Cruise: May 6 –16, 2023
  • Glacier National Park tour on the Empire Builder: July 2023

Contact me if you are interested in tours, or if you have a tour you would like us to consider. We are in the process of planning tours for 2023 and 2024.

We look forward to exploring the world together!
