Custom Luxury Tours and Expeditions

Navigator Series – For those who want more than the everyday, the tried-and-true, the expected, the Navigator Series is for you!   It is a deliberate departure from the ordinary in favor of the world of the possible, of exploration, of personal discovery.   Beyond sets of itineraries, the Navigator Series is designed to help you customize the dream vacation of a lifetime  to Africa, Central and South America, Asia, the Orient or, maybe the South Pacific.  We designed the layout to allow for easy selection based on your interests.  Use this as an idea resource, a reference tool that allows you to explore fully your own interests. This makes it even easier to customize every journey. Our goal always is to provide vacations that reach beyond the characteristic luxury journeys our guests expect from us.  We hope you will be inspired as you browse our site; or view the Navigator Series book online.  You can also order your own copy via our “Brochure Order Form” icon under the Contact section above.
