Wales & the Lake District | May 4th-12th, 2018
Castle ruins, meandering medieval streets, and magnificent Celtic heritage bring the beauty of Wales to life against a backdrop of rolling green hills and dramatic sea cliffs. Our stay takes in several literary locales, Wordsworth’s Dove Cottage and Beatrix Potter’s charming habitat, and will give you an indication why Lakeland poets (Coleridge, Southey as well) decided to make this area their home. This tour starts in Windsor and winds its way through Wales and up to the beautiful Lake District in England. Featuring castles, manor houses, high teas and botanical gardens topped off with a bit of royalty, who could go wrong?

Across the Alps | September 26th-October 5th, 2018
Starting in Munich, wend your way south Across the Alps to the fabulous Italian Lake District. On the way, we will pass through 5 countries: Germany, Austria, Lichtenstein, Switzerland, and Italy. We arrive in Munich at the beginning of Oktoberfest, so we will have a chance to join in the celebrations as we explore the city. Crossing the border, we enter the region known as the Tyrol: these are the Austrian Alps. Next come the Swiss Alps, where we’ll spend some time in Lucerne, nestled in the shadow of Mt. Pilatus, before finally leaving the mountains via Ticino. Finally, we explore the Italian Lake District, tucked into the foothills of the Italian Alps, with a stay in Stresa on the shores of Lake Maggiore.

Mediterranean shores | October 11th-20th, 2018
Nothing in the world conjures up more romantic and beautiful images than the Mediterranean. Azure waters, white sands, mountain villages, and year-round sunshine combine to create a mood of tranquility and contentment that is truly irresistible. Beginning in Barcelona, we then cross the Spanish/French border, stopping at the ancient walled city of Carcassonne en route, and on into Provence, a region that intoxicates with its light and landscapes. From our base in Arles we explore the grandeur of the Roman Empire in Gaul. Ancient hilltop villages beckon to be explored and a day in Avignon allows us to dance sur le pont! Our final stay is in elegant Nice, jewel of the Cote d’Azur, a city whose greatest charm is itself: the avenues, squares, markets, shops, and cafes that create an unforgettable buzz of sophistication and excitement.
