Cultural/Historical

Cultural Travel is usually thought of to describe tours visiting museums, monuments and buildings of historical interest. But it can also refer to meeting people from various walks of life and being exposed to new and different traditions. By immersing ourselves in different cultures, we come away with a much better view of not just them, but also of ourselves.

Cultural travel leaves us with much more than a typical vacation. We gain a deeper knowledge of the world. We get to experience life outside our familiar comfort zone. It can be a life-changing experience
