Since 1970 we’ve been exploring our world and sharing our discoveries with small groups of like-minded travellers. Our tours are designed for people with enquiring minds and a desire to learn from everything our world has to offer. We design almost all our tours ourselves, from scratch. This means we make sure to include opportunities for discovery within the specific themes we explore. The team at our Toronto home base and in the field are a passionate group of travel enthusiasts. As a company we have over 40 years of touring under our belt. We regularly visit all our destinations and one of our team will be able to answer any question about your trip or get the answer for you. We aim for careful attention to every aspect of your trip, from your first conversation, through administrative details, to getting your feedback on your travel experience.

Our travel programs are uniquely designed and sold exclusively through established organizations such as professional associations, employee and retiree groups, alumni associations, and financial institutions. Over the years we have established a strong base of sponsoring organizations as well as thousands of loyal and satisfied repeat travelers.

Our programs feature primarily international destinations. We have traditionally served numerous locations in Europe and Asia, but have expanded our offerings in recent years to include South America, the South Pacific, Alaska, Caribbean and the rivers of the United States.

Each of our itineraries is handcrafted by our team of travel experts to be an exciting and memorable experience from the moment you are greeted by your Tour Director until you return home.

Every traveler wants to see the world in his or her own way, so flexibility and personalization are factors we consider when creating itineraries. Each trip in our portfolio includes opportunities to add excursions or tour extensions, or add any number of days to your stay with flexible flight options. One way that our tours really stand out is our Right Size Advantage.

Traveler Testimonials

Our trip to Tanzania was magical. The Serengetti and Ngorongoro Crater are two of the great wonders of the natural world. The travel arrangements were excellent. Just pack your bags, update your shots and go!

Len & Jean Lillie, Tanzania Safari During the Great Migration

This proved to be a wonderful tour that was all we expected and more in many ways. The arrangements were all well taken care of at every turn. A highlight of the Amazon trip was the knowledgeable and friendly naturalists on board the Zaphiro. They really enhanced our experience on the river.

Mark & Marilyn Sears, Amazon River Expedition
