Your family's history
is like no other.

So your heritage tour should be like no other.

Your Grandma spoke German? You remember your church offering German services? You always wanted to see where the first pastor of your church came from? Discover the roots of your family or your church with Terra Lu Travel. We are specialised in setting up customized tours for groups. Whether it's a 4-person family or a tour bus full of travellers: Terra Lu will meet you at the airport and care about all land arrangements. Our drivers will explore the smallest villages to take you to the sources. Or discover the places on your own with our Assisted Self Drive Tours.

Search your family records and look up the places your ancestors came from. That's all we need. With this list of villages, towns, and churches in our hand we will put together your very own family roots tour. Whereever the places are, to which country they might belong today: we will take you there. Visit the church your grandfather was born. Or honor a KIA uncle at a World War cemetery. Having best access to local churches, heritage databases, and the records of the German Kriegsgräberfürsorge (war graves commission) Terra Lu Travel will build a group tour for you which includes transportation, lodging in local hotels, meals, site visits, contacts to local representatives, and everything else. Since Terra Lu tours always are individually designed to the specific wishes of the groups, your family trip will be like no other.
