The Best of Both Worlds: US-Owned. Worldwide Team.
Journey's International & Local Guides, Tour Directors & Staff

"Our Journey Tour Director really understood us from beginning to end. We like air conditioning (a lot!) - they just knew what essentials we would prefer and were able to blend it with an authentic experience in this amazing land!" —  Leah from Italy's Great Cities Tour

Whether you're traveling with us on our Tours to Italy or one of our other amazing destinations, we're very excited to be able to serve you!

Journey's small group tours don't have tour guides and leaders running you around with flags or umbrellas — we don't have big buses —  we don't have big groups —  we don't frequent touristic restaurants —  we don't upsell to you while you're on your vacation —  we don't spend hours on the vehicle. We DO have staff trained to work with North American travelers and to respect the essential preferences while blending them with the local and authentic experience.

This style of travel has proven itself over and over again —  we're pleased to show you the world one Journey at a time!

—  Welcome aboard!

Like-Minded Travelers. Foreign Countries are "Foreign."

Journey’s Small Groups allows travelers interested in exploring the world’s treasures and secrets to do so in the company of like-minded travelers who don’t take themselves too seriously. And while we are seriously committed to providing interesting experiences, adventures and sustainable tourism throughout our destination portfolio, we remind all of our travelers that are Journeys take place where the customs, language and other aspects of living are truly foreign to our North American way of life. So, keep your mind open as you enjoy the Journey and you will come back a changed person —  for the better!
