As we approach our 35th anniversary, I can recall our humble beginnings from a basement suite in Vancouver, British Columbia, where we were hand-writing our itineraries, corresponding by phone and fax machine, and marketing was by word of mouth. The world has changed immensely since then. We've learned a lot about our clients, our industry, and we've adapted to, and embraced, the digital age. I don't think we really would have known what a website was in 1987, nor an email nor a text message, let alone streaming online. I have been very proud of how Adventures Abroad has embraced these new tools at our disposal in our ongoing effort to improve the customer experience. I am also very pleased we are now seeing the travel industry progressively bouncing back and, because of our longevity and experience, we will be able to continue to send our travellers to many destinations around the globe.
On a philosophical level, travel is one of the most rewarding of industries to operate in. Since 1987, Adventures Abroad has dedicated itself to providing lasting memories and life-changing experiences for our travellers. Exploring the world and meeting new people and new cultures allows us to expand our comfort zone and as we grow into that new comfort, we grow ourselves as individuals.
However, the travel industry is not for the faint of heart. We’ve had our challenges in the past. The events of 9/11, the 2008 financial crisis, the Arab Spring – all of these tested our mettle and we endured.
As we enter this 35th year of Adventures Abroad’s existence, we have endured our most difficult time yet. The dawning realization of the seriousness of the global pandemic hit all of us very hard as the world took a pause. There were great challenges in bringing everyone home from the tours that were operating at the time, followed by those challenges of how to cope with the tours that were due to run and could not.
However, we have always sustained our hope. Hope that we will emerge from this pandemic sooner than later. Hope we can resume our way of life as we had it before Covid-19. And we believe we can do it. Why? I have you, our travellers, to thank for so much flexibility in how you have dealt with your tours being delayed.
Indeed, as we turn the corner on the pandemic, we ARE bouncing back. We operated several tours in the latter half of 2021 and we are seeing an incredible rebound in bookings for 2022 and 2023. We are more ready than ever to help deliver to you our vision of exploring the world, providing wonderful memories, and learning about other cultures in the small-group tour environment we embrace.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to provide it.
PRESIDENT, ADVENTURES ABROAD
Our accommodations, local guides, pre-departure service and suppliers are constantly monitored and consistently evaluated
to ensure we uphold the standard of excellence our valued clientele has come to expect. Moreover,
our sensitivity to traveller suggestions, requirements and safety are but a few reasons
that clients return to book with us year after year.
As afforded by our 'module system,' our small groups can venture beyond the well-worn tourist paths
and experience a destination's less publicized but equally rewarding attractions. Our itineraries
are creative and responsive, with departures set for the best times to travel and
sufficient scope to accommodate for unplanned events.
Travel is what we love and travel is what we know. The expertise that stems from the staggering number
of years of travel experience among our office staff and Tour Leaders shines through
in our tours and serves as a lynchpin in our successful operations.
Limiting our groups to no more than 18 participants plus one Adventures Abroad Tour Leader
means we can maximize cultural immersion while minimizing environmental disruption.
Also, as food plays an important role in the local cultural experience,
we take advantage of our diminutive group size and secure bookings in smaller, local restaurants.
Since we design, develop and manage our own tours, no one is more familiar with the intricacies
of our product than us. When you book with us, you take advantage of this
first-hand knowledge and our extensive network of worldwide contacts;
you're in good hands with Adventures Abroad.

Torres del Paine and our local tour guide were great. Also, I really was amazed at our guide's knowledge while visiting Perito Moreno glacier. Seeing it calve was fantastic. The hotels were all very good. Our tour leader was very easygoing but always aware and on top of things. His great sense of humor helps to diffuse any bumps in relations. Truly value his experience and great natural way with people. I would recommend this company and tour to anyone!
St Albert, AB - CA
Northern Italy For Less! Tour
We tried to plan a trip to Italy for several years and this tour exceeded our expectations. We never felt rushed yet we covered a lot of the major sites and museums and still had time to do a few of our own things Our tour guide Andrew was amazing and we would highly recommend him and this tour. November turned out to be a wonderful time to go because, although it did rain and was cloudy,the museums and many sites were not crowded at all. Our local guide at the Uffuzi gallery in Florence was amazed that there were so few people. He told us that he had never been in the
gallery that holds the Michelangelo painting by himself.. ever!
Italy is an amazing country to visit and this tour covers the highlights with a fantastic guide, delicious food and charming hotels, all arranged for you.
St Agatha, ON - CA
Central Mexico Tour
An insightful trip into a major cultural event, Day of the Dead. As well you visit significant archeological sites and churches. If you have any interest in Mexican culture, beyond beaches and tequila, this is the trip for you. You will gain so much knowledge of the history and struggles of the Mexican people. I can't recommend this trip enough.
Kingston, ON - CA
Western Turkey Tour
Having a narrow and perhaps stereotypical view, influenced by the media. I was blown away by what I experienced:Turkey is a beautiful country with modern, safe cities,dramatic scenery, spectacular mosques and palaces, amazing well-preserved ruins of Greek and Roman antiquity. A melting pot of Muslim, European, Greek, Roman cultures, fabulous food and warm friendly people... so many World heritage sites I would encourage others to visit Turkey.
Sagamore Hills, OH - US
Paraguay, Northwest Argentina & Uruguay Tour
I had been searching for several years for a tour that included Paraguay and was delighted to find this one. The mission visits were excellent, in terms of both the sites and the explanations. The Pipore Yerba Mate tour was terrific and I loved our guide there. Iguazu Falls was spectacular and again, we had a very good guide. Our trip to Purmamarca was surprising and very good. The buses and vans were very good. The hydrofoil trip was good also. All the dinners were wonderful, with excellent food and in lovely locations. The hotels were very good. Overall it was an excellent tour, with many interesting destinations.
Gloucester, ON - CA
Paraguay, Northwest Argentina & Uruguay Tour
A good tour with lots of interesting sites and spectacular scenery. I really learned a lot about these 3 countries and Latin America. I most enjoyed the Jesuit Missions, Iguazu Falls, and the Safari to the Clouds. All the hotels were very good. Meals on the tour were very good. I really liked our tour leader ordering appetizers to be shared which allowed me to try more local foods. Local Guides were either very good or excellent.
Glenview, IL - US
Microstates Of Europe Tour
We loved the whole trip and the surprises of touring in between trains. Also some of the little towns for lunch were a delight. The food on this trip was exceptionally great. All the meal choices and ordering off the menu was perfect. Our tour leader ordered tapas for us and a few planned meals were great too. If we hadn't walked as much as we did, we would have gained weight. The best thing was that all the hotels were centrally located and we could walk easily to highlight places and good restaurants. Perfect. You did an outstanding job selecting these hotels. Loved the train (and dashing for two of them). Had never done train travel before and the stations and facilities were mind blowing. First class seats were really nice. Love your guides and quality of local guides. Love AA.
Thunder Bay, ON - CA
We enjoyed the scenic west coast of Ireland the most. In particular, Killarney, Dingle peninsula, Cliffs of Moher, Aran Islands. Also the Giant's Causeway. The local guides in Dublin, Londonderry and Belfast were very good. We had a small van for our small group and it worked out very well. The meals were tasty and substantial. There was generally a good variety of selections. A very good tour.
Victoria, BC - CA
I loved the Ring of Kerry, Dingle Peninsula and Aran Islands. Belfast, Dublin and Killarney were the best cities. The hotels were good and well located. Hotel staff were excellent and rooms were clean and comfortable. Another great Adventures Abroad trip! You never disappoint!
Vancouver, BC - CA
By-and-large the sights, locales, neighbourhoods, etc were extremely interesting. The bus was great! A good size for the group size. It gave us a good sense of a 'home-on-the-road'. I didn't know what to expect for meals and was very pleased with what was presented. Our tour leader, Subash's, knowledge of 'everything Indian', the customs, sights, culture, etc was inexhaustible. He was the perfect person to introduce us to the culture, people, sights and history of India. His insights into the Hindu philosophy were deep, informative and colourful. I consider myself luck to have had him as our guide (almost a mentor). I felt that the quality of the hotels were very good and more often than not, higher than expected. The uniqueness of the two 'Orchard' settings and the desert 'camp' tents were quite fun and very comfortable. Overall: Highly Enjoyable, Very Well Managed, Well thought out Itinerary, Excellent Tour Guide.
