But the best way to experience these special places isn’t to just sit back and “enjoy the view”—it’s to embrace the great outdoors and do. From cycling tours to Jeep safaris, rainforest journeys to desert treks, we’ll design an immersive, thoroughly thrilling itinerary that gets your body moving and brings you face to face with rare landscapes and the creatures who call them home.
Soar over the Grand Canyon on a “flightseeing” tour via helicopter, then come back down to earth with a float down the snaking Colorado River. Fly through the air on a zipline that swings you through the jungle tree tops in Costa Rica, then catch a wave during a surf lesson on the golden coastline. Spy spotted cats and striped zebras while on safari in South Africa, then visit an elephant sanctuary to feed the gentle giants yourself and contribute to conservation efforts.
Whether your curiosity takes you to WWII battlefields or baroque cathedrals, magnificent metropolises or ancient desert outposts, our trusted tour outfitters will lead you right to it all with ease.
In Rome, enjoy a soaring private operetta performed during a feast of Italian delicacies—and all the chianti you can drink. In Morocco, visit traditional Berber villages tucked into the verdant valleys of the Atlas Mountains, where you’ll be welcomed with a long pour of mint tea.
In Sante Fe, check into a charming and historic pueblo-style hotel that reflects the dusty desert colors of the American Southwest—it’s the perfect homebase for exploring the local handicrafts market and attending a “pow wow” experience at an American Indian reservation, where the kaleidoscopic costumes and dances passed down through the generations swirl together in the sacred performance.
Saunter among an olive grove in the rugged mountains of Crete and try piquant varieties offered up by an olive oil “sommelier,” enjoy a slice of Cuba without getting out your passport on a “Cuban sandwich crawl” through Miami’s boisterous Little Havana neighborhood, tour and taste your way through a cocoa plantation in Costa Rica to discover how the delicacy goes from bean to bar, or load up on picnic essentials and the freshest California produce at Oxbow Public Market before you cycle your way through the vineyards of Napa Valley on a guided bike tour, stopping for private tastings and a picnic among the vines.
There’s no end to delicious discovery with our custom culinary journeys.
