WHAT OUR TRAVELERS SAY
Best quality and attention to detail at a great price!”
I met so many interesting people on this tour. We bonded exceptionally well with each other and with the study leader and tour director. I will certainly use Smithsonian in the future.”

This trip was so much better than our expectations (and they were high). My husband hesitates traveling abroad, but we both were totally captivated. Every night on tour, we celebrated the day!”
If you want to learn about the history, culture, and art of China and Tibet, I highly recommend this tour!”
