Great Cities of the Maya

Great Cities of the Maya

Take a fascinating journey through the 2,000 year old history of the Mayan people, from the ancient days to the present. As you explore the ruins of the great Mayan cities of Tikal, Palenque, Yaxchilan, Bonampak and Piedras Negras, our guide highlights the history, legends and archeological finds of these ancient civilizations and the unique aspects of each: climb to the top of the impressive grand temples and pyramids of Tikal as you are “serenaded” by the howler and spider monkeys who live in the surrounding jungle canopy, and marvel at the intricate paintings at Bonampak which are still intact today. You learn about the way of life and customs of the modern Mayan people through authentic interactions: take in the scene of colonial Antigua’s atmospheric central park; enjoy lunch with a Mayan family in Xenotox; and learn about traditional weaving methods from a women's cooperative. After exploring, you spend the evenings in historical boutique hotels and native-style jungle lodges. This itinerary is great for archeological or history buffs or those who have witnessed the great pyramids of Egypt or Incan cities such as Machu Picchu.

England - Hadrian's Wall & The Lake District
The Wayfarers

England - Hadrian's Wall & The Lake District

The landscape that inspired Wordsworth and Coleridge is our home for this seven-day journey across the romantic Lake District and rugged Northumberland.

Following the course of Hadrian's Wall, we trek through wild, unpopulated country, climbing low fells and high crags, crossing open moorland and following remote bridleways. We see Roman towns, bath houses and military forts, meander through sleepy northern villages and eat hearty pub lunches.

A highlight of this trip is our time at Lake Windermere, the largest and most impressive of the lakes. Here we visit Rydal Mount, Wordsworth's elegant home, and Beatrix Potter's garden at Hill Top.

Machu Picchu Mountain Lodges Trek

Our Mountain Lodges Trek to Machu Picchu is a physical, cultural and spiritual journey, taking you along ancient footpaths through the high Andes en route to the legendary ruins of Machu Picchu. Accompanied by expert Peruvian mountain guides and horse packing crew, you trek in style from lodge to lodge along a spectacular route in the Cordillera Vilcabamba under towering snow-capped peaks dominated by Mt. Salkantay (20,574), the sacred Apu of local Quechua communities we encounter along the way. Like Inca royalty, you overnight in the comfort of well-appointed trekker's lodges with private rooms, enjoy Peruvian cuisine, soak in Jacuzzis and relax by a cozy fire.
