Our Story

Edita Krunic, our company President, began Select international Tours thirty-five years ago with the goal of getting more people to the sacred sites in Medjugorje. Her faith was rewarded when Select International Tours became the first US company to send pilgrims there! Soon, she was helping Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant leaders to organize pilgrimages for their groups to sacred sites around the world.

Today, Select International is known for its compassion, service, and innovation. Select International Tours and Cruises pioneered faith-based group travel programs that combine faith and food, faith and fitness, and was the first company to offer Small Ship Pilgrimage Cruises.

Select International is a small company with a big heart. Our 501(c)3 charitable foundation, Select to Give, directly supports Christians living in the Holy Land. Learn more on the Select to Give website.

“Thank you Select, you are a gift to pilgrims who travel with your company! I wish everyone knew about you and how great you are.”
