BACK ON THE ROAD, NEW TOUR, & TRAVEL DESTINATIONS ON OUR RADAR FOR 2021 & 2022



As we roll into September, we really feel like we are back in the swing of things. Two tours, one to Newfoundland and one to Iceland, ran in August and the feedback has been tremendous!

Superstar tour leader, Serra Hughes, took our valiant group of travellers on a comprehensive tour of the ‘Land of Fire and Ice’ for 12 days while sharing stupendous photos of waterfalls, coastlines and jaw-dropping mountains along the way. And a few of the beautiful Icelandic horse, of course. Here are some of the glowing reviews we have received from Iceland:

Stephen M. – “Thoroughly enjoyed the trip and glad that I went. It was a good start after all the issues with the pandemic. Glad that AA was very organized and made it easy.”

Veronica P. – “Iceland was a wonderful tour. I was thrilled to be traveling with AA again and I'm looking forward to going to Turkey next April.”

Meanwhile, our fabulous Atlantic Canada-based tour leader, Marion Sawatzki, was showing off our beautiful province of Newfoundland & Labrador. The group had a fabulous time, indulging in all sorts of antics from L’Anse aux Meadows to Labrador to Twillingate to St. John’s. They were “havin’ a time!” (“having fun”), they were! We can let the testimonials speak for themselves:

Molly M. – “This was a great tour. It was wonderful to be in the company of like-minded folk again, the first tour for AA since March 2020. We were thrilled to be a part of it. More people should explore Newfoundland and Labrador - a marvellous part of the country.”

Brian P. – “With Covid we had to be very flexible and the itinerary was adjusted according, and by the way done very well… I was very pleased with the trip. I came home believing I had learned a lot I didn't know about Newfoundland and Labrador and that is what I expected.”

So what do we have lined up next?

Tours to the Greek Isles are underway with our tour leader extraordinaire, Victor Romagnoli, and to the Wild Pacific Coast of British Columbia with our stellar tour leader and Operations expert, Sierra Searing. The photos and video we are receiving are truly inspirational. We have a swath of material being delivered by our tour leaders on the fly. Soon we will be turning our attention to our upcoming tours running this fall in Greece, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and more!
