Looking Ahead, and Looking Out for You

Our tour operators have created more flexible terms and conditions and can guide you through the evolving health and safety protocol of each destination, to help you feel comfortable when you decide to travel again. The decision to return to travel is a personal one. Please consider your own comfort level and if you will enjoy yourself while traveling. We look forward to welcoming you back and want you to have the pleasant, rich experience we know traveling the world can be!

This schedule reflects current travel projections and is subject to change as we and our tour operator partners monitor the developments of the pandemic and the latest travel advisories. Please check back here often for updates. 

Experience the world. A world of experience.

"We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time."  -T.S. Eliot
