Who We Are

Connect Tours & Cruises was established in Houston, Texas in June of 1994 by Marilyn Lowe, to provide specialized travel arrangements and complete tour packages for groups of 20 or more with a specific interest for traveling domestically or internationally. Our friendly staff has over 30 years of combined experience in providing customized group travel services for students, adults, church groups, etc.

We combine our love of travel, industry experience, management skills and dedication to the client to create the optimal travel experience for large groups. Along the way, providing personalized service and attention to the smallest detail in order to make each tour as smooth and enjoyable as possible.

Every Connect Tours itinerary is customized to your group’s specific requirements and objectives, whether you are looking for an educational student tour, a corporate retreat, a cruise, wine-tasting tour, etc. Our experts will show you all of the options available and assist you in designing the perfect tour, and, should the unexpected occur, we’ll be ready to respond quickly and make the necessary adjustments to keep everyone on track. Where other travel planners look at groups and see a block of tickets, we see individual people with unique expectations and needs. Our reliability, attention to detail and ability to listen to what the customer needs and desires have gained the trust and loyalty of our clients.

From hotels, motor coaches, festivals, concert performances, airlines, sightseeing tours, cruises and specialty packages, Connect Tours will design a tour to meet your group’s unique travel needs.



To provide personalized attention to each client’s needs and never lose sight of the fact that our job as group travel experts is to make every individual within a group happy.
