President’s Picks: Ecuador & Colombia Exploration
“About a decade ago, we saw clearly that there was so much more to Ecuador than the fabled islands. In Colombia, the challenge was to get people to look beyond its troubled past. Fast forward to today, and see how this journey is the culmination of the vision we had. This in-depth adventure moves through the heart of the pre-Incan empires of these two remarkable countries.”

President’s Pick: New Zealand & Australia Land, Sea, Sky
“Every time I see the creative programs our team comes up with, I ask, ‘What does a cookie cutter even look like?’ That includes this one featuring one of my favorite parts of Australia, the Whitsundays along with some of the prettiest parts of New Zealand including the top golf courses on both islands. This is the Australia and New Zealand that reaches past the rock, the reef and commercialism.”

President’s Pick: Sri Lanka A Natural Adventure
“Sri Lanka is re-emerging on the world stage as a destination. On this adventure, you explore Sri Lanka’s natural and cultural history that rediscovers areas of the islands such as Jaffna that have been seldom visited for decades. Savor home-cooked meals in private homes, tour Jaffna by bicycle, look for leopards in Wilpattu National Park, and climb the fabled rock fortress of Sigiriya, Discover the culture, religious traditions, history, nature and the welcoming people of Sri Lanka.”

Historic Routes of Ethiopia
“After leaving Kenya, my family and I spent a bit of time in Ethiopia on our way to the US. As a child in Kenya, one of my closest childhood friends was from Addis as well, so my desire to see Big Five in Ethiopia has been there for many years. And now, I am confident that the guide infrastructure is ready as well. Welcome to an amazing country!”

President’s Picks: Cambodia’s Unique Treasures
“When you mention Cambodia, what is the first thing you almost always hear? Angkor Wat! What if you heard something different? That is what this program is about – a different Cambodia. My first visit to Cambodia was as a college student with my family. I left curious, curious about what more there was. I am always looking at the possibilities of place. Travelers too often overlook Cambodia as stand-alone itinerary. This journey is proof that Cambodia can, indeed, stand on its own two legs as a unique and fascinating destination. I am proud to present you with this vision all these years later.”

President’s Pick: Northern Peru Warriors of the Clouds
“Most countries feel lucky to have an iconic sight or two. Peru is one of the few locations with so many that it transcends empires. This journey is about getting past the Incas and seeing the ancient empires of Peru that shaped the future. This journey is about changing how you see Peru through new concepts and access to new areas.”
