You make a real and happy difference in the places you visit on a Classic Journeys vacation
Knowing shepherds, village elders and chefs is good business.
Keeping it local is what we’re all about at Classic Journeys. We put our pesos, dirhams and euros into the pockets of the folks who live where we travel. From tour leaders to glacier guides to truffle hunters, village elders to geishas, llama herders to gelato makers, restaurateurs to hoteliers, we work with the local people to support their livelihoods. It’s your guarantee that you’ll have authentic, up-close experiences on your trip. Best of all, our person-to-person business dealings help sustain their ways of life. These wonderful friends reciprocate by welcoming you into their worlds.
We have soft spots for childhood education and women’s economic issues.
You’ll find that we have a special affection for tiny village schools in regions from the Peruvian Andes to the Mekong Delta. So that you can be a part of the experience, we suggest supplies that will make meaningful and useful presents to the students. As a company, we directly donate resources to the schools. We’re also proud to support community programs and women’s collectives around the world. Many of them work to preserve traditional crafts and folkways as diverse as weaving or the harvest and processing of argan oil in rural Morocco. Your explorations with Classic Journeys help to preserve the past and positively shape the future of developing countries.
