Group tours of olden days included big buses and tourists checking off destinations and sites from their list — we get it, we really do, but...
Authentic Cuisine, Intimate Experiences, Cultural Immersion
Journey's approach to dining is finding family-owned restaurants that feature farm to table dining. We dine first, then share our discoveries with you. Each tour is limited to our small group size averaging 10 to 16 guests which allows us exclusive access to unique venues. Our touring experience goes beyond the surface with close up and in culture experiences.
Journey is Different: Our Goal is Stress-Free Travel that allows you to truly enjoy your Journey
We seamlessly weave together each Journey from our branded and top-selling Small Social Groups to our Personalized and Self-Guided Journeys.

Prefer to avoid the big tour operator's large buses, long lines and touristic restaurants?
Yes, that's our preference, too. With Journey's approach you'll feel special,
set apart from the touristic mobs, and you will want to travel again and again as a Modern Traveler.
