About Us

Alistair is the son of a missionary and was born in Dr Graham's Homes in Kalimpong.

Almost 30 years ago he founded McCabe Pilgrimages. Alistair is Managing Director and has most recently been responsible for providing and executing an extensive Oberammergau Passion Play programme for the third time.
