Are You Ready for Your Great Trip?

Dine with a view of the Ponte Vecchio, or cross it to visit the hand-crafted jewelry shops.

Start with Your Great Trip to France...

Visit four of the supreme destinations in France: the Loire Valley, Mont Saint-Michel, the Normandy coast and Paris.

Experience the Valley of the Kings...

Go chateaux-hopping like the Renaissance royals. Then select your favorite "little" retreats for future visits.

Visit the Incomparable Mount Saint-Michel

Stay on the Mont, as the early pilgrims did, while the ocean tides race in to surround this gem, cutting it off from the mainland to create a perfect haven of solitude and peace.

Or Immerse Yourself in Cinque Terre on the Coast of Italy

Take to the water to move among the five charming and colorful villages, perched at the water's edge, with a mountain backdrop.


What Is The “Great Trip” Travel Style?

What Makes It Unique? . . . .


A Style of Travel

We believe that ultimate travel is not just a trip to “see sights,” but a life-changing journey that is to be fully experienced and remembered. It is glorious and enthralling. It is never to be forgotten.

A Way to Connect

Travel should be balanced…not overwhelming. It is engaging…not superficial. It opens the way to encounters with the locals and does not disconnect you from the people in whose homeland you are a guest.

A Way of Life

Ultimate travel is not dictated by the constraints of traveling in a group, with rigorous time limits. It is made in freedom to immerse yourself in a place—its culture, history, and people. Its sights, sounds, senses and energy.
