Tour Details



The opportunity to travel with such ease and comfort with my daughter and granddaughter was fabulous. Being able to give them such a trip and enabling them to expand their horizons is an experience I will never forget. The memory of the trip even deepened our bond and our love of each other as well. 

Barbara H.

An excellent trip for children as well as adults- informative, extremely well-organized, a superb staff and set of tour guides, a great boat and an attentive crew - and lots of fun! 

Barry S.

This was the best planned and executed trip I have ever experienced. I saw more and learned more, while having my creature comforts well cared for, to perfection.
