President’s Picks: Ecuador & Colombia Exploration
“About a decade ago, we saw clearly that there was so much more to Ecuador than the fabled islands. In Colombia, the challenge was to get people to look beyond its troubled past. Fast forward to today, and see how this journey is the culmination of the vision we had. This in-depth adventure moves through the heart of the pre-Incan empires of these two remarkable countries.”

President’s Pick: New Zealand & Australia Land, Sea, Sky
“Every time I see the creative programs our team comes up with, I ask, ‘What does a cookie cutter even look like?’ That includes this one featuring one of my favorite parts of Australia, the Whitsundays along with some of the prettiest parts of New Zealand including the top golf courses on both islands. This is the Australia and New Zealand that reaches past the rock, the reef and commercialism.”
