A New Small Group Travel Experience Awaits...


Experiences Beyond Expectation

It’s often said that experience is the best teacher and we couldn’t agree more. That’s why you’ll find a variety of unique travel experiences included on Explorations. Some are active and even a little adventurous, some will reveal the heart of a culture, and some have the power to change your life.

Hard to replicate and impossible to forget, these moments forge memories you’ll carry with you long after you’ve returned home.

You’ll share the road, a few meals, and a variety of special moments with a small, tight-knit group averaging about 15 people. You won’t be one of the crowd with Explorations, you’ll be an integral part of a cultural expedition.

The Freedom to Explore

There’s no “one size fits all” travel experience. We include plenty of “you” time and choices on Explorations, plus optional experiences that allow you to discover a destination on your own terms.

Local Expertise

Explorations does more than show you a new place. It connects you to new cultures and shows you a fresh perspective of the world. This approach to travel wouldn’t be possible without a little help from the local experts who will share the adventure with you.

Authentic Flavor
