I want to share just a little bit of information about us and our trips. My wife Ana is Croatian and has been going to Medjugorje since 1983. Together we have been taking pilgrims to Medjugorje since 1995. We have personally traveled to Medjugorje with over 200 groups throughout the years.

Medjugorje has become our home away from home, and we are able to show you Medjugorje with insight and experience, which only comes through so many years of traveling there. We love to share all that we know to all who come. Our groups always stay in private homes near the base of apparition Hill with Vicka's family.

Here is what some of our pilgrims have said about their trip experience with us.

Becky - Los Angeles, CA
"I've gone twice to Medjugorie and the each time Steve and Ana Shawl really make these pilgrimages special.  They gave me and the group tons of personal attention and the groups aren't always big in which you get lost in a "tour group" crowd. Thanks to both of them I always saw the key people (visionaries, Fr. Jozo, etc. and places.  I recommend them to anybody even thinking of going to Medjugorje, they made my trip like traveling with family and I have made lasting friendships with the people in my groups. I would never travel with another tour group."

Kelly - Chicago, IL
"I had such anxiety before my first trip to Medjugorje and so many questions! Steve and Ana were incredibly helpful, always willing to take the time to answer any questions I had. They take such good care of you, and I wouldn't think of traveling with anyone else!"

Rhea - Attleboro, MA

"Thanks for the superb job you did in coordinating our pilgrimage - it was absolutely awesome how smoothly our accommodations went. I will definitely recommend anyone I know who wants to go to Medjugorje, believe me. I am still soaking in all the blessings I received and hope you and Ana and your daughter are doing well."

Tom - Atlanta, GA
"I have been blessed to have made two pilgrimages to Medjugorje with Ana and Steve Shawl. Altogether I have made 5 pilgrimages to Medjugorje and I must say that traveling to this blessed village with Ana and Steve via the Medjugorje Web is something very special. They are well known in the village and you have this feeling of being with family. To say I am pleased with the pilgrimages I have made with Ana and Steve is an understatement. Their pilgrimages are outstanding."

Diane - Stevens Point, WI
"I've traveled with Steve & Ana for all three of my Medjugorje trips. Their familiarity with both the people and culture are invaluable! Their well organized trips include daily group activities, yet allow ample free time for individual experiences."

Betsy - Boston, MA
"Not a word in a dictionary can describe the wonderful experience I had in Medjugorje."

Mary - Scituate, MA
"Steve and Ana Shawl are AWESOME! Personally, I cannot imagine travelling with anyone else. They really make it fun and relaxing for everyone. Many people that we've met on these trips tell us that they've travelled with others and have never had the fun they've had with Ana & Steve. These people claim that their experiences are more rewarding spiritually, and they really love that it's also fun.

Jane - Jersey City, NJ
"Travel with Steve and Ana Shawl and you are guaranteed the most up-close and personal experiences. Ana's family is from Medjugorje and she speaks fluent Croatian which is a great aid when meeting the visionaries. My family and I stayed in Vicka's mother's home the first time we went. I'm still thanking God for the experience."

Arthur - Boston, MA
"Truly something special. You're drawn to look inside and find the true meaning of faith."

Judy - South Rockwood, MI
"I was first called to Medjugorje in October of 1990. In 2001, I again felt the call to return to Medjugorje in October of that year. After the tragedy of 9/11, my family persuaded me to cancel my scheduled trip. So, when I again felt called to return to Medjugorje in October of 2002, I decided to contact Steve and Ana Shawl since I had been receiving their newsletter for many years. Steve answered saying they'd be happy to have me! Steve assurred me that he would send me detailed instructions on every step of my trip so there was no cause for worry. Steve was "true to his word" and my entire trip was without incident. Traveling by myself turned out to be a plus as I was able to get to know and spend time with other pilgrims in our group. The Lord spoke to me in a "special" way through members of our group as well as through the many speakers we were priviledged to hear during our stay in Medjugorje. Steve was very patient and always available to listen when any of us felt the need to express our thoughts or feelings.I believe Our Lady is calling many of us to Medjugorje. If you feel the call, rest assured you will be in competent hands with Steve and Ana Shawl!!"

Matt - King of Prussia, PA
"I had a wonderful trip to Medjugorje which was the most spiritual experience I ever encountered. I am hearing impaired due to rubella, Steve and Ana provided the best accommodations for our deaf/hard of hearing group and it went very very smoothly as everyone in our group had a wonderful experience. Even though, we had a deaf priest who served mass for the deaf/hard of hearing with our signing interpreters at St. James and it was the most inspiring mass I ever experienced. We are planning to have our Second Deaf Pilgrimage in 2004 as we are very comfortable the way Steve and Ana provided. As matter of fact, Im planning to go to Medjugorje in March with them. Steve and Ana are very special people to be with. Without them, I don't think I would have gone to Medjugorje. Peace and Mir!"

Sue - Berlin, Germany

"Just a small message filled with love and gratitude for all the efforts and the work you do. We had wonderful time in Medjugorje, overwhelming experience, can't describe the peace and joy we had. The group was so well put together, it seemed as if we knew each other before."
