Relaxing and Enjoyable
By 5th-time traveler Jerry on 07/23/17
Never a dull moment. Beautiful weather. Visiting and walking amongst the ancients. My second time in Rome with Go Ahead. The Vatican a MUST see a MUST experience. The Island of Capri was beautiful - just like the pictures and movies one sees.
Italy & Greece
The time to go is now!
By 17th-time traveler Mary on 06/12/19
From sunshine, lemon and olive groves, to ancient cities just waiting for you to unlock their secrets. Add Naples, Rome, and the beautiful Amalfi Coast, and what are you waiting for? I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
Puglia & Southern Italy
Would do it all over again!
By first-time traveler Paulina B. on 8/2/18
This was my first experience with a tour group and I would 100% do it all again. The whole experience from accommodations to excursions were phenomenal. My tour Director Kurt I would recommend to anyone.
London, Paris & Rome
Beautiful Coast Walks
By 1st-time traveler Craig on 05/08/13
The Amalfi Coast Walking Tour was a series of breathtakingly beautiful walks. Whether it was on the Path of the Gods, by the village of Atrani, or in Ravello, every turn we took revealed another spectacular landscape of verdant hills and bay views.

4 benefits of summer travel

The list of summer travel perks is endless. But here are just a few of our favorite reasons to see the world between June and August.

1. Warm weather for exploring
If you’re planning to travel this summer, you can expect weather that’s in the high 70s. If you plan to visit Iceland, it can get up to 68. And if you’re looking at summer vacations to Australia, where it’s their winter, you can expect it to be between 50 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on where you go.

2. Activities for every interest
One of the best parts of our summer tour packages is that there’s something for everyone. Whether you’re interested in listening to live music or sipping homemade sangria, walking through nature or feeling nautical on the sea, our summer trips have it all.

3. More daylight for sightseeing
The sun rises earlier and sets later in the summer, which means longer days for you to explore. With more free time, you’ll truly make the most of your trip.

It also means spending more time outside, so you can see wildlife at Denali National Park, walk along the cliffs of Moher in Ireland, or snorkel with sea turtles in the Galápagos.

4. It’s the off-season for many countries
Scandinavia, Iceland, and Australia & New Zealand are often considered winter travel destinations. But in the summer, they’re even more special. Summer vacations to more traditional winter destinations mean fewer crowds, lower prices, and more unique experiences.
