What's New

We are honored to have been recognized by Virtuoso®, an international luxury travel network, with an award for 2014 Sustainable Tourism Leadership. Follow this link for more information.

In the what’s really new department, we have launched a much anticipated new collection, Precious Journeys, that proves we are still just kids at heart. These adventures focus on children, specifically those between the ages 5-11, and their travel needs. Everything from the style of their documents to the activities are tailored to them.  We looked at a wide range of topics and included more things that children will find fun.   The first adventure is Kenya: Kids, Cats & A Treehouse. We will with two more coming online very soon.

For an in-depth adventure into Southeast Asia, Indochina, 20 days, takes you into theremarkable landscapes and amazing cultures to encounter the welcoming people of Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.  From a Vietnamese cooking class to Cambodia’s remarkable Angkor Wat to Loas’ rural lifestyles, you will be richly rewarded.

A little closer to home, the 14-day Panama, Costa Rica & Nicaragua journey explores this dynamic trio of Central American countries with their mix of outdoor adventures and distinctive cultural encounters.  Whitewater rafting, including some Class III and IV rapids, treetop adventures and beachcombing are just a few of the options to be found here.
