Classic Journeys Offers Ultimate Trips to New York Times Top Travel Destinations

January 17, 2013 -

Classic Journeys differentiates their tours by working with local experts that will allow you to completely immerse yourself within the culture and history.

Guests stay in high-end properties, eat at locally-owned restaurants and see the destination through the eyes of the natives.

Bhutan (pictured) – This is one of the world’s most Buddhist countries with monasteries perched across the terrain. A local guide will take you through a 5 day/4 night extension into India’s dramatic Darjeeling region, while meeting the Bhutanese farmers for an insider’s look at this heavenly land.

China – With a fine sense of balance and feng shui, the tour will reveal China to you like no other trip. From a hike and picnic on the Great Wall, wandering along the country paths that farmers used to take, to ascending to Shangri La, Classic Journeys blends all the essential sights for you and more.

Croatia – This adventure will take you along the farm trail, engaging with locals who run a family vineyard or a lace-maker who has her own workshop. With the unspoiled countryside and seaside towns of near-Venetian beauty, this rare kind of destination will give you the unforgettable thrill of discovery.

Italy – Ciao Bella! Whether it is sailing along the coast of Capri or within walking distance of the Colosseum in Rome, Classic Journeys offers many tours in Italy that combine all your interests into one travel experience. You’ll be able to soak in the grandeur of Rome or leave for a lovely getaway to the open space of Tuscany.

Norway – Here, you’ll glide over waters in the deep blue shadows of Fjord, feast on fresh fish from the North Sea, and wander through the wildflower meadows of Scandinavia. If you love the outdoors, this is perfect for you!

Spain – From exploring Roman ruins to sea kayaking on the clearest water, you’ll be staying on a luxury hotel overlooking the sea. With our local guide, you’ll get a mix of excellent eating, energy-burning activities and memorable sightseeing that will make this the ultimate beach vacation!

Thailand – In Thailand, we’ll visit an elephant camp deep in the foothills of Chiang Dao, take walks to remote villages where tribes practice ancient traditions and crafts, glide over rivers in classic long-tail boats, and most importantly, taste the country’s finest cuisine.

Myanmar – The tour takes you to the feet of the Shwedagon Pagoda, to the causeways of the Bogyoke Aung San Market, to see the dolphins that inhabit the Ayeyawady River, and will navigate you through the complexities of re-establishing travel to Myanmar.

Classic Journeys, a luxury adventure travel company offering tours in over 70 regions around the world, in 33 countries and 5 continents, offers remarkable tours and handcrafted adventures to the hottest 2013 destinations. More information: www.classicjourneys.com
