2020-2021 Tour Summaries

Ultimate Tanzania Safari

November 1–12, 2022
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.

Japan: Farther Afield

May 9–19, 2023
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!

Insights to Portugal

September 7–15, 2023
Portugal — the European continent’s “west coast” — has become fashionable in recent years. It’s understandable with its hundreds of miles of shore and a California-type climate. Beyond that it’s an ancient compact land with a rich history, pretty villages, monumental architecture, excellent food and wine, hospitable people, and a laid-back lifestyle. Five hundred years ago Portugal set out to explore the world. Now the world is coming to them!

Savoring New Zealand

March 3–13, 2024
After an extended closure during the pandemic New Zealand is open — and hot again as a destination! We’ve redesigned our previous itinerary to focus less on the thrill-seeing adventure activities in favor of the country’s excellent epicurean scene and some of its natural splendors. From Waiheke Island to Wellington, from Dunedin to Queenstown, this is a terrific cross-section of what this beautiful country has to offer.

Occitanie & Provence

Straddling the famed Rhône River we explore two delightful regions in the south of France —Occitanie to the west of the river, Provence to the east — while using one hotel base for the week. This sun-baked territory is rich in history and rich in its culinary offerings. Join us as we explore Nîmes, Arles, Montpellier, Châteauneuf-du-Pape and much more!
