Italy: The Places in Between

September 15-21, 2021
Inspired by the travel guidebook of the same title this tour focuses on cities in the Emilia-Romagna and Veneto regions — cities that are almost always passed over as tourists zip from Florence to Venice. There’s a plethora of worthy sights around here, and we’re very glad to bring you this program — our eighth unique itinerary and 24th tour overall in this country that never ceases to impress!

Athens & Islands

October 11-21, 2021
Greece! The ancient Minoans’ Palace of Knossos in Crete, the regal Acropolis in Athens, Akrotiri on Santorini… the ruins are as impressive as they are numerous. Enjoy traditional dishes with local products including the daily catch, cheeses, olive oils, honey, wines, and spirits. Miles of aquamarine seas form the backdrop to Santorini’s beauty with its whitewashed clifftop towns and famed sunsets and the glamor island of Mykonos with its hip bars, restaurants and boutiques.

Chile — Top to Bottom

March 4-16, 2022
For lovers of the outdoors Chile is a must. In the Atacama Desert, Patagonia, and Chiloé Island we use luxury all-inclusive lodges with a variety of activities — from the tame to the high-octane! Witness the majestic “end-of-the-world” landscape in Patagonia; the other-worldly moonscapes of the Atacama Desert; and the UNESCO World Heritage-designated Chiloé Island.

Japan: Farther Afield

May 10–23, 2022
A sequel to our popular Japan highlights tour, this new itinerary will take in destinations that are a bit less visited: the natural beauty of Hakone; the city of Kanazawa with one of Japan’s most famous gardens; Japan’s other major metropolis, Osaka; Himeji Castle; Bizen pottery; the contemporary art of Naoshima Island; Hiroshima; charming Miyajima Island; and more!

The Basque Lands

July 17–23, 2022
The Basque country is home to a fiercely independent people with an ancient language. Our itinerary reveals the delights of this region of Spain (and a smidgen of France) that is undeniably quite a bit unlike the rest of the country. The area is full of enticements — modern architecture, famous wine, renowned cuisine, history, and beaches to name just a few.

Genoa to Pisa

Italy’s Riviera is both a historic destination and a fabulously pleasure-seeking one, where you can explore lavish palazzi and simple village churches but also enjoy good food, sample the local wines, do some gorgeous walks, and gaze at the azure sea. The dramatic coastal topography is certainly impressive but so are its charming towns along the way. If you have a bit more time join our optional extension to Florence and environs!

Ultimate Tanzania Safari

Tanzania is a safari-lover’s delight, and our itinerary focuses in large part on lesser-known reserves — fewer visitors, more remote! Our carefully selected high-end safari camps are situated in the very best locations within prime game-viewing areas. Our experience is immersive, authentic, and engaging. Protecting wilderness areas and the surrounding communities is a key concern of our suppliers in Tanzania. And their teams welcome us with warmth and make us feel at home with genuine African hospitality.
