Current Featured Cruises

Our programs are hand-crafted to create experiences that are impossible to duplicate when traveling alone. No matter which trip you choose, you'll be exposed to new cultures, given unique opportunities to meet the locals and form new friendships that will last a lifetime. You'll learn about history, art, flora, fauna, food, and nature in ways that would be impossible on your own.

Select from one of our pre-designed trips outlined below. If you don't see the trip you have in mind please send us a message with your destination and instructor wish list and we'll use your feedback to develop new trips. Most of our trips are repeated every year, every other year or sometimes every 3-5 years.
