Heritage Tours Handcrafted According To Your Ancestry

Have you ever wondered what life was like in the land of your ancestors? How remote was their cottage in Ireland? What did they eat in their Sicilian village? What did they see through their windows when they woke to a morning in Vietnam or Spain or Croatia? How did a world you’ve never seen influence the person you are today?

Let your family tree inspire your next vacation with help from Classic Journeys. Whether you think of it as a heritage tour, a DNA tour or ancestral tourism, exploring the land of your roots adds an engaging extra dimension to your travels. Even if you don’t have specifics about the where and when of your family’s origins, you’ll still feel a connectedness like never before.

Brings your ancestral heritage to life with our culture-rich itineraries.

Each itinerary is handcrafted to bring travelers into close personal contact with a region’s people and culture. Your full-time local guides know the farmers, the craftspeople, the everyday folk who live modern lives that strongly echo tradition and history. You’ll gain eye-opening insights into the events that spurred emigration. And it’s not unusual to encounter a dish that reminds you of the one Grandma used to serve on Sunday or a legend that sounds a lot like the one you were told as a bedtime story.

Take a look at our scheduled trips now or simply send us your 23andMe,, or other DNA results and we’ll contact you with more information on the regions that match your ancestry!
