…the majesty of the Acropolis, the charm of traditional villages, the magnificent art of Michelangelo, the azure waters of the Aegean, the magnificent architecture of Istanbul where east meets west…

…the shores of Cyprus, where Aphrodite was born from the foam of the sea crashing into the cliffs… the hidden ruins of Machu Picchu, shrouded in mist and the mystery of the past… the secret sands of the Atacama desert and the glaciers and lakes tucked into the far peaks of Patagonia… the tap-tap-tap of the tango, born in the streets of Buenos Aires…

Heaven on Earth… found in Greece, Turkey, Cyprus, Italy, Peru, Chile, and Argentina, lands whose allure has held for over four millennia. Regions long renowned as centers of culture, history, religion and romance. Countries that are at the top of every travelerís wish list.

From the majestic ruins of Ephesus in Turkey to the spectacular sunsets of Santorini in Greece to the medieval hill towns of Umbria and Tuscany in Italy, from the Incan ruins of Peru to the the southernmost tip of the Americas in Chile, heaven awaits you here on earth.

Traveling with a group is one of the finest ways to experience these destinations. With the expertise of a guide to help make your trip run smoothly, you can spend your time marveling at the destinations rather than trying to read road signs in another language. The guessing game of where to find a good bite to eat is in the hands of those who know the best spots to experience the local culture. Best of all, you travel with like-minded explorers, equally curious about your destination… often, your fellow travelers turn into life-long friends.
