What makes Classic Journeys so different?
The real reasons why every Classic Journey is the trip of a lifetime.


You travel for the escape. For the authentic immersion into a people and place. For the rare and memorable thrill of experiencing the world as you never have before or rarely have the chance to do. But every savvy traveler knows that beyond a poetic description of the Tuscan countryside or of swimming with Galápagos sea lions, what's "under the hood" of a trip can matter as much as the itinerary.
 
With Classic Journeys, you have access to decades invested in creating trips of a lifetime that are objectively different—and better—than those offered by other tour operators. Consider this your guide, to help you make sure that you’re comparing apples to apples when you consider a Classic Journey versus a trip from another company.
 
Only Classic Journeys has been a Travel + Leisure World’s Best Tour Operator for each of the past 12 years!

It’s an incredible record that means a lot to you. T+L’s World’s Best Awards are the result of voting by people who’ve actually traveled with the hundreds of tour operators in business today. Not one of those other companies has been rated as highly and as consistently as Classic Journeys over the past 12 years. If you’re looking for a sign or third-party validation that Classic Journeys is the way to go, this is it.​
