Adventure is calling travelers who long to walk roads less traveled in 2021! Borders are re-opening around the world and some of our tours ready to ignite your inner trailblazer are beginning as soon as September. Immersive experiences await those who are ready to explore Egypt, Jordan, Peru, Ecuador, and Kenya. 

Do you crave a cruise down the rivers of the iconic Nile River or want to wade in the waters of the Dead Sea?  Are you yearning to join a safari in search of the Big 5 or to discover secrets in the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu?  Whichever of these thrilling journeys you seek, we’ve got you covered. But which to choose? (Or which to choose first?!)  

Egypt + Jordan

We have two tours with departures in 2021, both beginning in September. Journey Through Egypt and Jordan visits both countries; and Treasures of Egypt takes you in depth in Egypt. Both tours begin in Cairo, Egypt’s energetic capital, where travelers can expect a glimpse into the past. These tours bring travelers to Luxor’s West Bank, to the Valley of the Kings, and to one of the 7 Wonders of the World: The Pyramids of Giza. See the famed, stoic Great Sphinx and connect with history.

Our Journey Through Egypt and Jordan tour divides its time across the two countries. In addition to the quintessential sights of Egypt, you can get a taste of the incredible history in neighboring Jordan. You’ll see the “Rose Red City” of Petra, looking as if it has jutted straight out of the surrounding red sandstone rock. Those going to Jordan will visit the ethereal desert landscape of Wadi Rum, known as the “Valley of the Moon,” as well as soak in the waters of the Dead Sea.

Whether you choose to immerse yourself fully into the allure of Egypt or to split your time uncovering treasures in both Egypt and Jordan, unforgettable moments lie in wait on journeys of a lifetime.

Peru + Ecuador

Our tour Machu Picchu & Galapagos Wonders has departures in October with very few seats remaining! From the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu tucked into the lush green slopes of the Andes to the robust wildlife and beautiful blue waters of the Galapagos archipelago, Peru and Ecuador will steal your heart with their natural beauty! In Peru, you can explore the lively streets of cosmopolitan, seaside Lima before traveling to the core of the Inca civilization in Cuzco. Venture through the terraced ruins of Ollantaytambo. In Ecuador, take a 4-day night private cruise on a yacht around the Galapagos Islands and see Darwin’s discoveries with an unspoiled backdrop.

This trip is one for the books and is an expedition worthy of any intrepid explorer hankering for the unknown on land and by sea!

Lions and leopards and elephants and rhinos and buffalo, oh my! On our Plains of Africa tour, search for the Big 5 and other creatures over 11 game drives. Embrace the beautiful culture, folklore, and traditions, learning first-hand from a member of the Samburu tribe. See the spotted, blue-grey tongue of a Rothschild’s giraffe as you feed it plants at the Giraffe Sanctuary. Wrap a full day on safari with a dinner in the open bush and watch a Masai dance performance by a bonfire.

See the thriving cultures and innumerable natural wonders that make Kenya one of the most popular African countries to visit and a top contender for your next incredible adventure!
