Besides our Scheduled Departure Tours, Ready to Go Itineraries, and Tailor-Made Private Trips, we arrange several “Annual Special Journeys” (ASJ) every year. These are our small group tours that take our clients on a particular tour route at a particular time of the year. The reason for this is that certain countries, regions, or cities are best visited at certain times due to the best season for local flora and fauna, holidays, festivals, and/or special events that are taking place at that time.
Our “Annual Special Journeys” allow you to experience a particular country with a small group, whereby you will have the opportunity to socialize and get to know the other like-minded travelers who share a common interest on your tour. Traveling in a small group is always an adventure due to the unique and exiting knowledge, skills, and personalities that each individual has to offer. Also, these tours are typically more affordable than a private tour, yet still unique and attractive as your own tour may be.
In addition to traveling to unique destinations at a particular time of year and with a small group, all of our “Annual Special Journeys” include a tour leader (with 10 or more tour participants) who will accompany you throughout the duration of your tour. Our tour leaders are senior managers, sales, and/or operations staff who come directly from one of our North American offices. They are experts on the country and particular destinations in which you will visit during your tour and therefore, add great value to your overall experience. They assist the local guides and act as concierges, to serve your every need, want, and curiosity throughout your tour. You can find the tour leader’s bio in each ASJ tour itinerary in which we are featuring and promoting for a particular year.
The beauty of our “Annual Special Journeys” is that they consist of unique itineraries and experiences that change every year. They are specially made by our office staff based on our first-hand knowledge and personal travel experiences, whereby we can guarantee that these tours are well worth experiencing. These tours typically focus on one country and usually offer a more in-depth experience into a particular region or special interest. We typically offer 3-6 “Annual Special Journeys” tours every year, which are announced six months to one year in advance.
