Icons & Hidden Gems


Many tours and small ship cruises have an element of history in their itineraries. For true history buffs, however, some destinations especially lend themselves to making history the focus of the trip: Rome, Athens, Angkor Wat, and Egypt to name a few. You can find specific tours and trip itineraries that cater to historically minded travelers, and even some tour operators who specialize in the field.

American Parks Trail end Denver
I loved seeing and experiencing some of our stops. We didn’t just drive by, but we hiked around Devil’s Tower and went to the top of the Crazy Horse monument! We saw buffalo close up in a Jeep safari and experienced Old Faithful more than one time-we stayed in a hotel close enough to see it multiple times!

The itinerary needs to be fine tuned, I would eliminate some things to allow more personal time(rest)

This tour was well worth the money. We got to see many different parts of Scotland, which highlighted the differences between the regions.

The only thing that distressed me was the lack of recycling on the bus, and that’s the volume of mixed garbage was tremendous and and unnecessary as it all would have gone to landfills…… Including hundreds of pop cans, and bottles. This also included most of the hotels we stayed in. I strongly suggest that this issue is managed in a much more manner….. if the opportunity presents itself everyone would recycle as we are so used to it. This lack of recycling in both the Hotels and the tour bus is the only reason I would not take another Trafalgar tour.
