Costa Rica & Panama Adventure
Peruvian Treasures
Vietnam & Hong Kong

Our Costa Rica & Panama Adventure stands out among our International tours as an exclusive small-group getaway in a fascinating tropical paradise.

Imagine yourself spending a day aboard the Pacific Queen, enjoying a full-transit cruise through the locks of the Panama Canal. Near the village of Los Chiles, Costa Rica, we’ll go on a riverboat safari through lush rainforests and marshlands. We'll enjoy fresh roasted coffee at Doka Coffee Estate, hike to a steaming lake in Poas National Park, explore Monteverde Cloud Forest, and so much more!

Book our Costa Rica & Panama Adventure by September 1st and save $200 per person!

On our Peruvian Treasures vacation, spend eight days exploring Peru’s rich cultural history, featuring the breathtaking wonder of the Incan Empire. This tour’s crowning highlight is a guided visit to the Incan Empire’s most iconic mountaintop citadel and famous UNESCO World Heritage Site, Machu Picchu.

Tour Peru’s capital, called the City of Kings, and explore the Santo Domingo Church, the catacombs below San Francisco Monastery, and the Larco Herrera Museum’s Pre-Columbian exhibits. We’ll go to the Sacred Valley, once the heart of the Inca Civilization, and explore its historic markets and meet llamas and alpacas, and learn about Peru’s fabric arts culture. We’ll visit Cusco, once the Inca capital, where we’ll see the Temple of the Sun, the Plaza de Armas, the nearby fortress Sacsayhuaman, and much more.

On our tour of Vietnam & Hong Kong, enjoy Southeast Asia’s marvelous landscapes, food, culture, and history. Spend two nights in Hong Kong, “the Pearl of the Orient,” visiting temples, vistas, restaurants, and much more. In Vietnam, we’ll explore Hanoi, Hué, and Saigon, plus an overnight cruise on stunning Halong Bay, featuring beautiful limestone spires and crystalline waters.

Our cultural experiences will be unlike anything you’ve imagined. In Hanoi, we’ll watch a water puppet show, where entertainers operate puppets that dance on the surface of a waist-deep pool set to music and narration. On our cruise, we’ll see a demonstration on fishing for squid. In Hué, we’ll ride a three-wheel bicycle taxi to the imperial citadel, where we spend the morning exploring the well preserved palace. In the Mekong Delta, relax on a sampan boat as we’re paddled through tropical canals.
