Cultural Tours

From ancient ruins to tribal traditions and the pleasures of modern times, a cultural tour is the way to really get under the skin of your destination. Delve into the stories of years passed through ancient cultures, ages-old monuments and historical relics. Explore the riches of human history through art, music and architecture. See firsthand another way of life through authentic local experiences, understanding local customs and genuine encounters. To do more than just see the sights, immerse yourself in your travels with a cultural tour.

If ancient history is what excites you, there’s certainly no shortage of fascinating and significant places to explore. Cruise the Nile with an expert Egyptologist on hand to reveal the wonders of ancient Egypt, visit the many ruins and temples of ancient Greece or trek the Inca Trail to the hidden citadel of Machu Picchu in Peru. For history that’s not so shrouded in legends and mythology, take a walk along the Great Wall of China, explore the castles across Scotland, or get to know the Berlin Wall. From the mystery of Stonehenge to the Temples of Angkor in Cambodia, it’s amazing what you’ll discover.

To unravel a few museums, you’ll be spoiled for choice in Washington D.C., Mexico City, Barcelona and Beijing. But if it’s the finer things in life that most inspire you, like art and music, you simply can’t miss London, Paris, Salzburg, Basel and the many galleries scattered across Italy. Then top it off with a bit of architectural admiration in Barcelona, Dubai, or Shanghai to start. For encounters with the people, take a journey through Africa to meet the Maasai, dance with Cubans in the streets of Havana, or head somewhere off the main tourist track like Mongolia or Sri Lanka.
