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 four tours a year, based on the results of the 2019 member trip survey and new requests.

We are currently working with Road Scholar, 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.

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 2024, 2025, and 2026.

We look forward to exploring the world together!
