How we choose our locations

All of our locations have been specially selected to meet 4 important criteria:

  • Both natural beauty and exciting city life – museums, castles, cathedrals, mountains, lakes, rivers, wine, beer & night life. We want you to go home with the sights, sounds and smells that make each country unique
  • Craftsmanship – we go where they make the beads, silver and jewelry you love
  • Our artists and group leaders select them and add their personalities to what we create
  • We’ve been there and we can’t wait to show you why we love it!

Join us for a trip of a lifetime…

All of our tours are fully refundable until a few months from the tour,
so you have nothing to lose and the world to gain.
