Travel with Friends, New or Old

When you set out to plan your vacation, who’s on the short list of people you want exploring with you? Is it your spouse… partner… significant other… or best friend? Maybe it’s a group of friends. Join us. Classic Journeys itineraries feature small groups and authentic experiences. With an average of just 10 guests per departure, our groups can slip discreetly into the smallest village where our local guides know everybody… from vintners to tribal chieftains to truffle hunters. Their friends become yours as you travel through the scenic countryside and historic villages, staying in the region’s most distinctive inns and hotels.

Our Bucket Runneth Over

It’s a funny thing about bucket lists. The theory is that you cross items off until it’s empty and the end is near. Maybe you’re like us and your bucket list never gets shorter. You watch sunrise at Angkor Wat with the monks and then Iceland or Alaska pop up to lure you with the Northern Lights. You check off midnight in the Moroccan Sahara, and suddenly a new need to swim with sea lions in the Galapagos rushes in to fill the vacuum. Or maybe you just want to walk footpaths with iconic names like The Inca Trail in Peru or The Path of the Gods along the Amalfi Coast.

The World is Your Onion

Is there anything more fun than peeling back the layers of a place you visit on vacation? While tourists skim their way from A to B, you like to get under the skin of a culture to truly understand what it’s all about. One of the best ways to unwrap a destination is to really get out into the environment and enjoy it. That might be on one of our multisport trips with a variety of activities offered during the week or ending the day on one of our walking tours with a soak in thermal waterfalls heated by a nearby volcano.

Travel with Whomever, Whenever

Have something specific in mind that you or your people want to see or do? Share it with us. We put the “custom” in custom journeys. Other companies often appropriate the approach created by Henry Ford (“Any color you want as long as it’s black.”) so that you can choose any tour you want as long as it follows their normal itinerary. When you choose Classic Journeys, you can join a published trip date, turn an itinerary you love into a private trip, create a more specialized version of one of our itineraries, or even create a totally unique adventure.
