Why choose us?
We are a company you can trust
We are licensed and registered in the Province of British Columbia.
We are a company with experience
We have been in the international tour business since 1997.
We are a company that cares
Our first priority is the comfort and security of our clients. We want our customers not only to gain a culturally enriching experience but to enjoy a fun-filled, worry-free vacation.
We are a company that delivers value
We strive to give top value on all our tours. We appreciate the investment made in a tour and believe the return should be commensurate.
Our service is personalized
Every customer is special and is treated so. You will receive personalized attention from your first contact with us.
Our groups are small
We limit the number of participants on most tours to 16. You will never feel lost in a crowd; you'll receive personal attention from the guides, and be treated to tours of sites not accessible to larger groups, such as home visits and the like. You'll see and do more with us.
Independent travelers welcomed
We are happy to work with individuals, families and groups to develop customized tours.
Departures are guaranteed
Once final payment is made, departure on any tour is guaranteed, regardless the size of the group.
We provide quality accommodations
Most hotels are 4-star or 5-star, except in smaller places where hotels of such rating may not be found; then we strive for best available. We book non-smoking rooms unless clients wish otherwise.
We use first-class transportation
Generally, we fly on regularly scheduled flights. Coaches are first-class, air-conditioned. The Yangtze cruises are all 5-star.
Our itineraries are carefully planned
Each tour is designed to ensure travelers see the major sites and attractions while allowing some free time to follow individual pursuits. We avoid wherever possible early starts and for the most part spend two or three nights at each stop on the route.
Our packages are all-inclusive
Our full-package tours include hotels, most meals, all travel including flights, sightseeing and admission charges, and English-speaking guides (arrangements may be made for guides speaking other languages). Our land-only packages include the same as those mentioned except for the international flight between the start point and end point of the tour.
Prices in Canadian dollars
Tour prices are listed in Canadian dollars. Prevailing Bank of Canada conversion rates apply for payments made in other currencies.
Credit card payments accepted
We accept payments by Visa or MasterCard without surcharge. A surcharge may apply for payments made by American Express.
Fully escorted programs
Tours with 10 or more participants are fully escorted from start to finish of the land-only tour. On some tours the tour leader may accompany the group on the international flight. A professional guide and driver meets all groups, regardless the size, at each place visited and remain with them until the group moves on to the next place.
Congenial travel companions
Generally speaking, on our tours you will travel with a friendly group of people with similar interests and backgrounds.
We invite singles to join our tour and for those wishing to share will make every effort to find a suitable travel companion. A supplement may apply if a companion is not found.
Travel at best times
Our tour dates coincide with the best overall times for travel in the places we visit. Top
