Why Choose A Travel Department Long Haul Holiday
Explore the Americas on one of our incredible group holidays to countries like Canada, Brazil and Argentina. Embark on the quintessential great American road trip on Route 66 from Chicago to L.A. or visit the Land of the Incas on a trip to Peru and Machu Pichu. Visit Cuba to learn about this country’s amazing history on a 1950s classic car tour around Havana. Each trip includes guided excursions with an expert guide and plenty of free time, so we can truly immerse ourselves in the culture of new locations.
Take in some of the most important sites in the history of mankind on a trip to the Middle East and Africa. Walk in the footsteps of Jesus and Moses on a holiday to Jordan and Bethlehem or discover the Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx on a trip to Egypt. For those interested in Africa’s rich flora and fauna, we’ll enjoy a safari to spot big game and drive along the lush “Garden Route” on our holidays to South Africa.
Explore the highlights of earth’s largest and most populated continent on our trips to Asia. From the emerald waters of Ha Long Bay in Vietnam to the ancient Terracotta Army in China, our tours go to the most impressive and exciting places that this vast continent has to offer. On our trips around the world, we’ll also be able to experience local culture first hand. Sail the backwaters of Kerala on a traditional ‘Kettuvallam’ house boat in India or attend an authentic Geisha performance in Japan.
On our trips to Oceania, we’ll discover the best that Australia and New Zealand have to offer. In Australia, we’ll watch the sun rise over Ayers Rock, take a helicopter ride over the Great Barrier reef and meet kangaroos and koalas in the Featherdale Wildlife Park. In New Zealand, we’ll see filming locations from the Lord of the Rings, discover the Franz Josef Glacier, and enjoy the hustle and bustle of Auckland. Each of our Oceania holidays also include stopovers in Singapore and Hong Kong, so we have the opportunity to explore a 2nd continent on our travels!
Our worldwide holidays also include trips to places that are on the outskirts of Europe like Russia, Iceland, and Turkey. Each of these incredible countries spans two continents, giving them an interesting mix of culture and history for us to discover. Witness the breathtaking Northern Lights and learn about Viking history on a trip to Iceland. In Russia, discover the jewels of the Kremlin and visit the palace of Catherine the Great. While in Turkey, experience the extraordinary Blue Mosque and travel to the famous World War I battle site of Gallipoli.
