The Terre Entière team
Terre Entière is a team of more than twenty staff

in each of the countries in which we organise tours.
We are driven by our passion for cultural tours, but
also by a passion for humanism. In exercising our profession, we offer our services
to both individuals and groups. We devote all our energies and know-how to helping
you discover the world and its cultures in an open-minded, intelligent and friendly

Cruises and cultural tours
This brochure presents a broad range of
cultural tours. Each tour is accompanied by a
lecturer specialising in the destination. The maximum size of each tour is 20
participants (unless clearly specified for exceptional operations).
A page on the website presents the spirit in which we plan and organise our cultural tours.
Each specialised agency has its own concept of the cultural tour and Terre Entière
emphasises the human dimension of each journey, knowledge of the civilisations and
cultures visited, an open mind and respect for the peoples encountered.
This brochure also proposes a wide variety
of cultural cruises,
both by river and sea. For these cruises, we charter small, comfortable boats, or
arrange for a Terre Entière group to sail on a ship carrying other clients. Whatever
the formula, we always place emphasis on quality by working with the best professionals,
but also by adding our own special know-how, thanks to the expertise of our staff,
and guides and to the care and attention we devote to preparing your cruise.
Cultural cruises on the small boats chartered exclusively by Terre Entière
have played a considerable part in establishing its reputation. They allow thorough
exploration of various subjects and offer life on-board as a cohesive group. Brochures
dealing with these cruises can be requested simply by calling us on 00 33 1 44 39
Pilgrimages and spiritual itineraries
This brochure proposes pilgrimages to the very
heart of the Christian tradition, to biblical sites and countries that offer an
opportunity for a greater understanding of faith, and a very real personal spiritual
approach. Each itinerary is accompanied by a priest whose concern is for the group as
a whole, but also each individual, ensuring respect for his or her personal attitude
and approach. The maximum size of each pilgrimage is 25 participants.
On this website, we propose pages defining Terre Entière's perception of the
pilgrimage and we present our
special partners in organising them.

Terre Entière offers a customised group tour
service : associations, cultural groups or groups of friends, parish or
diocese groups. Year after year, more and more groups trust us to organise their
trip, their cruise or their pilgrimage. You can submit your project
by clicking here..
All the tours presented on the site are accompanied by a specialist of the country
concerned, naturally assisted by local guides.
Terre Entière : then and now
La Procure Voyages was created by the La Procure
bookshop, which then belonged to the Groupe des Publications de la Vie Catholique
(now La Vie - Le Monde). For a far shorter period, the agency was a part
of the Nouvelles Frontières group (1999-2001). Terre Entière was then taken over
by J.-P. Morin (Routes Bibliques agency at the time) which appointed Hubert
Debbasch as Managing Director. He took over the company four years later, in January
2005. Terre Entière now enjoys complete independence from all other groups. Its
aim is to stand apart from its colleagues and competitors not only through the technical,
cultural and spiritual quality of its services, but also through the absolute priority
given to hard work and humanity over pure financianal gain.
The name of the company has changed over the years.
La Procure Voyages was created in 1976
and bought out several years later by another agency named Terre Entière.
The company was then known as La Procure Terre Entière. La Procure Terre
Entière became Terre Entière in
September 2004. Terre Entière has for the past seven years enjoyed excellent growth
in each sector and a special site is now devoted to each activity: cultural cruises,
cultural tours and
To travel the cultures of the world, you can
trust us to meet your expectations.
