Whether you challenge yourselves to conquer the Inca Trail together, or just need some down time to relax on a chartered yacht in the Caribbean, we will customize the perfect travel experience for you.

Friends and Families

multi generational travel

Taking a fun-filled vacation to an exotic destination around the world is one of the most memorable ways to spend quality time with loving family members and close friends. Maybe it’s a very special journey to take your adult children and grandchildren to visit the Panama Canal over the holidays, or a group of close-knit friends from college decides to travel to the end of the world together by embarking on a custom-designed adventure to Patagonia.

What Our Clients are Saying about Us

Ann Patman and Tom Neufeld

Trip to Cuba

Cuba is a beautiful country and well worth a visit.  The people were very friendly and shared stories about  their lives.  I would heartly recommend the tour operator that you worked with since they provided a first class service. Thank you for arranging such a special visit for us.

Chris Bonasera

Trip to Costa Rica

I wanted to let you know that Jack and I had a wonderful time in Costa Rica. The customized itinerary that you put together for us was perfect. All of our guides were excellent – very knowledgeable and extremely friendly. Now we are really looking forward to seeing what you come up with for our vacation to New Zealand next year.

Angella Hearn and Charles Hack

Cuba Vacation

We found our trip to Cuba more than met our expectations and we were very pleased with the organization and planning of the trip.  The art and music aspects of the tour were memorable, including a visit to Ernest Hemingway’s house, an evening with the Buena Vista Social Club and the Parisien Cabaret at the Hotel Nacional.

Ilene and Mark Mattison-Shupnick

Patagonia Trip

We loved the trip that you put together for us. Every part of it was perfect. Someone was always waiting for us with smiles when we arrived at a new destination. Patagonia was stunning. We loved the kayaking and horseback riding as well as hiking. You were so easy to work with and readily available to answer any and all of our questions as we began the planning process.
