New York Times’ Destinations of the Year

The New York Times recently named their top destinations of the year (check out a slideshow of the locations here). If any of them look appealing, our tours travel to many of these exotic locales and offer an unspoiled, up close view of their beauty and charm.

Listed as a cultural destination by the Times, Berlin is a stop on one of our barging tours of Northern Europe along with stops in France, Belgium, Holland and Germany. Our 12-passenger boat offers en-suite accommodations, large dining, bar and lounge areas, a Jacuzzi, sauna and sundeck.

For families, they recommend Africa as a family destination mainly for the “volun-tourism” trips that are available, but we also have many travel options that would allow you to see this beautiful country, including our Kenya Wildlife Adventure walking tour. This trip allows you to explore Africa’s Great Rift Valley on foot, walk in beautiful protected reserves next to giraffe, zebra and antelope and see red rock gorges, hot spring waterfalls and flamingo fringed lake with accommodations in historic colonial lodges, all with pools and outstanding cuisine.

We also offer guided walking tours, trekking and walking tours in East Africa, an area known for the Great Rift Valley that stretches from The Gulf of Aquaba in the Red Sea to Mozambique. Here you’ll see some amazing natural wonders, including great blue soda lakes, volcanoes, mountains and great fertile plains.

Argentina makes for a great trip on a budget, says the New York Times, and we offer guided walking tours and trekking tours through the Andes of Chile and Argentina. A little more challenging, these tours take visitors among the soaring granite spires of the Fitzroy group and the peaks of the Torres del Paine. Other magnificent sites include the Perito Moreno Glacier and glacial lakes of turquoise and emerald reflecting the snow capped pinnacles piercing the skies above.
