Expertly crafted to reveal the essence of a destination, each journey is led by a Resident Tour Director® who travels with the group from beginning to end, offering insight that only comes from being a local themselves. Interactive activities bring the destination to life, including a hands-on lesson in how to bake Egyptian-style bread and the chance to snorkel among sea lions or ride in a glass-bottom boat for a glimpse into life beneath the waves in the Galápagos. Each journey is designed to captivate curious minds, positively impress young hearts and foster a lifelong love for travel.
