Advance Notice Lists

"I am continually humbled that the odysseys sell out so quickly!  

If you are really interested in a particular departure, I invite you

to sign up for the Advance Notice List for any upcoming tour. 

This means that you will be notified early with a detailed itinerary

and have the chance to sign up before the information is generally released. 

Call or email to place your name on a list today with no deposit required and no obligation."

~Cari

Don't Think Waitlists Are Hopeless!

Because people tend to book so far in advance and life can throw us curve balls, we are often able to clear a couple of people on the waitlist for many of our departures.

Our 2022 Calendar

We may be adding more trips in the near future.
As the world slowly opens up to travel, we may hit a few bumps
along the way but we are optimistic we'll be fully exploring the world in 2022!
