Adventure on land and witness timeless cities rich in history, cuisine, and culture.

Cruise to Amalfi
Legend has it, Hercules, the pagan god of strength, loved a nymph called Amalfi. When she died, Hercules buried her in the most beautiful place in the world, and he gave it her name. Your guide will tell you many secrets about the town's history and daily life.

A Taste of Montenegro:

On Day six, catch a beautiful view of Kotor Bay and lovely mountain scenery en route to Njegusi, where you will visit the village smokehouse.

Savor a snack of smoked ham and cheese, brandy and wine -- all local specialties. Head down the mountains towards the city of Budva, believed to be one of the oldest settlements on the Adriatic coast at more than 2,000 years old.

Corfu in Focus: Photography Tour

A local photographer will mentor you, offering practical hints on framing the best shots of the fascinating architectural features and ruins of ancient Greece. This tour is perfect for the avid photographer or those looking for the best shots to post online! 

Your tour will begin with a short, panoramic minibus drive through the Old Town of Corfu. The Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site -- a fortified Mediterranean port town of high integrity and authenticity.
