Why guests turn to us to ask where to travel in North America.

“I wish I’d known then what I know now.” That’s often the first thing first-time guests say to us after explaining how their prior North American travel experiences have gone wrong. Sometimes it’s because they did a guided tour North America with another company; other times they elected to make their North America adventure travel experience self-guided.

What they ‘discovered’ instead was what our expert local guides already know. You can’t see Yosemite’s Half Dome or even enter the park without a reservation. Permits to walk the Zion Narrows can sell out months in advance. The best time to see Alaska Northern lights is winter, when they are spotted against the spectacularly dark night sky. And you can actually see two pairs of breeding bald eagles on San Juan Island… but only if you know who to ask… and when to go.

If you’re like most of us, you have your own woulda/coulda/shoulda stories about the near misses that can happen on vacation. At Classic Journeys, it’s our mission to take the “what if” and “who knew” out of your travels.
