A Laotian elephant preserve. A one-room school in the Andes. A traditional crafts collective in India. Wherever we travel, Classic Journeys is eager to support the local economies,small family businesses, and cultural institutions that make each destination so unique.

But we have a special soft spot for tiny village schools. “Time and again, our guests say that the school visits are the unexpected highlights of their trips,” says Franklin Vargas, one of Classic Journeys’ senior Peru & Machu Picchu guides. A fresh notebook can win an iPad-sized smile. A few dollars can feed a one-room school or build a new bathroom. To help guests be part of the experience, we suggest supplies that will make meaningful and respectful presents to the students. As a company, we donate resources to the schools to support them in their missions.

The wonderful local people you meet on a Classic Journey give so much of themselves, so freely. We’re proud and happy to return the favor.
