2020-2021 Tour Summaries

The Basque Lands

June 29–July 5, 2021
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.

Luxury Yachting in the Adriatic

September 5-12, 2021
Join Venture Out aboard Crystal Cruises’ luxury intimate yacht, the Esprit. Discover the Dalmatian Coast, where majestic mountains meet a crystalline sea and archaeological treasures abound, from UNESCO sites in Sibenik and Trogir to the Venetian flair of Vis and Hvar. With just 62 passengers onboard guests are pampered with six-star service.

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!

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.
