Imagine yourself waking up on a luxury junk boat as it drifts across Halong Bay in Vietnam. Or, maybe you’re in Yellowstone National Park, watching a herd of bison plow their way across the snowy landscape. You could be pulling into camp on the Serengeti Plain of Africa after a jeep safari.

These experiences, and so much more, are what define an Explorations tour.

Explorations tours are for those who truly want to interact with the world around them. Engage with the culture on an intimate level, talking to locals and experiencing what life is like in a new and different corner of the globe. See incredible natural landscapes, architectural wonders, and historic landmarks that evoke a sense of awe. And do this all with exceptional access due to the small size of the tour group – with an average of 18 - you can see and do more.


Explorations tours are about doing more than just seeing the sights. What makes travel different is the ability to interact with the people you meet along the way, and seeing the world from a new perspective.
