Special Tour announcement:

PERU MISTURA: September 2014 (click for more info)
A Cultural and Culinary Exploration in Peru and the 2014 Mistura festival!
Like the Spanish word "mistura", which means mixture, this small group, private tour mixes cultures, cuisines, and geography.

The unique trip is designed by anthropologist Charlie Strader, President of Explorations. His love and appreciation of Peru’s cultures and food diversity started with travels there in the 1980’s. Having traveled throughout Peru, he wanted to plan a special cultural, natural history, and food-focused itinerary that also included the incredible gastronomy fair in Lima, called Mistura! During cultural adventure, a resident chief and guides introduce the cultures of Peru, their environment, history, art and foods. You will experience why National Geographic named Peru the "next Foodie Frontier" in their Best of the World for 2012.


6 Days & 5 Nights, September 10 - 15

After the Mistura 2014 Tour in Lima, for a trip extension we will be exploring along the Pacific Coast of Peru, escorted by anthropologist Charlie Strader and local guides. For travelers, this area may be known best for its incredible archaeology sites, and many have enjoyed it for the beautiful colonial cities, scenic beaches, friendly people, and of course its delicious regional cuisine. We will take advantage of all.

We are pleased to now offer Belize small ship cruises with special discounts available.

Sail away to Caribbean paradise on the Grande Mariner cruise ship (only 44 cabins). This Caribbean cruise voyage carries you from the remote islands of the Belize Barrier Reef (the world's second longest barrier reef) to the jungles of Guatemala. White sands, swaying palm trees, Mayan ruins, and rainbow-colored reefs are yours to explore on this unique Central America small ship cruise! Relax and admire the stunning scenery and explore in Belize and Guatemala on this adventure cruise, starting and ending in Belize City!
