Independent Vacations

The world's finest tour operators offer a large number of vacation packages designed for people who wish to travel independently, without groups or guides. Operators use their buying power to negotiate low hotel rates and sometimes bundle these attractive rates with daily breakfasts, airport transfers or a sightseeing orientation. The number of inclusions and quality of hotels used vary according to the package rating, which we provide for every trip listed below.

With these pre-arranged packages, you won't have to spend time looking for a nice hotel in each city as the research work is handled by experts. You'll stay close to the major sites, making it easier to explore. There won't be a tour director traveling with you, as there would be on an escorted tour, though some packages include the services of a local host in each city. As your travel advisor, this person can suggest restaurants, recommend sightseeing activities and assist with scheduling excursions.

Along with great hotel rates, tour companies also offer special prices on airfare. Our travel counselors can offer air rates that save you even more money.
