Sample Experiences

3,000 Years of Culture and Cuisine

One trip to Rome and you’ll wonder why anyone ever leaves. Here you’ll find fresh, fine cuisine, relics of historical grandeur, and locals who know how to enjoy the best of life's offerings. Because there’s so much to see, and your time is precious, trust your Rome vacation to a guide. With your private, chauffeured tour, you’ll revel in the architectural, artistic, and culinary glories of this classic city without missing a beat.

Chase the Northern Lights

A journey to Iceland’s Northern Lights has an adventurer’s name written all over it. Between mid-September and mid-April, travelers throughout the world descend on this European nation to watch the Aurora Borealis dance in green and red drapes, in misty shapes across the sky. But instead of being herded onto a crowded tour bus, take a four-wheeling, otherworldly quest in an off-road vehicle.

Bedouin Camp Adventure

In Dubai, you’ll revel in the city’s dining, opulent shopping malls, golf courses sprung from a desert landscape, and gold haggling as a local sport. If you want to enjoy an enchanted evening at a Bedouin camp, hop aboard a guided four-wheeler and launch up and over the dunes.

Sunrise over Angkor Wat

Your private guide will provide you with an insider’s tour of Angkor Wat and the surrounding Cambodian province of Siem Reap. Inside the temple city, you’ll explore miles of carved, decorated surfaces, columns, and rooftops. There are reliefs depicting scenes with unicorns, griffins, and winged dragons pulling chariots, and parading warriors and dancers.
