Adeline actually began organizing groups with the Archdiocese of Los Angeles in September, 1979. Part of her responsibility in her leadership position was to negotiate prices for Retreat Houses and hotels, to organize conventions, and make airline and hotel reservations for couples and priests attending those conventions and meetings. She organized and escorted her first Pilgrimage Tour to Rome and Lourdes in September 1983 and has been loving it ever since. When Adeline and her husband Bob retired from their position in the church, their friends thought the logical thing to do was to open their own travel agency and continue to offer their knowledge, expertise and personalized tours to others. And so Sweet Adeline's Travel & Tours,Inc. was born.
Sweet Adeline's Travel & Tours, which is about 95% repeat clients and referrals quickly grew from a “mom and pop agency” to an internationally known Tour Company in just a few years. In fact, one of their programs was written up in The Wall Street Journal. We are a FULL SERVICE Travel Agency that can serve you with honeymoons, family vacations, Independent Travel, cruises, Tours, Hotels and more. If you can dream it, we can take you there!!
In addition to our full service department, we also offer religious tours and our unique "Pilgrimage at Sea."
The religious tours division comes under the name of Adoration Tours.

In Rome, we are especially well connected to obtain fantastic “up close” tickets for the Papal Audience. As members of the Italian Government Tourist Board and the Italian Travel Promotion Council our most popular requests are for escorted tours in Italy, but there is equally high demand for itineraries which include the various Marian Shrines, especially the Shrines of Our Lady of Lourdes, Fatima, Medjugorje, Guadalupe and others. Tours to the Holy Land and Egypt have come back strong and The Footsteps of Sts. Paul and John is top notch.
Sweet Adeline's Travel & Tours and Adoration Tours is best known for their service and availability. Their escorted tours are personalized and organized specifically with the needs and desires of each group. Adeline was quoted as saying, “We offer you "Tours of Distinction" with the highest integrity and greatest value for your investment escorted by highly trained professional tour managers. Come experience the beauty, the culture, the differences and similarities of the many people and places around the world. Allow our years of experience and passion for fulfilling your dreams to give you a "Lifetime of Memories."
