These tours are defined by their incomparably unique itineraries, featuring 'off the beaten path' destinations and immersive experiences. An intimate group size allows us to stay in smaller, centrally located, unique and boutique style inns, lodges and hotels, utilize traditional local transportation and dive deep into each destination's local culture and traditions.
The style our travellers have enjoyed for over 20 years, these tours feature inclusive itineraries to popular destinations including the 'must see' sites and attractions. Led by an expert Tour Leader, you will enjoy comfortable accommodation, and coach transport throughout the journey.
Our groups comprise 21 to 28 participants depending on the category of tour plus your Anderson Vacations Tour Leader. With Anderson Vacations you can do more and see more at an easier pace, enjoy the peace, and quiet of that special place you've always dreamed of, and actually hear the local guide!
All itineraries are created with the upmost care to ensure that our clients get the most out of their tour, without exception each itinerary undergoes careful scrutiny during crafting, thereby ensuring maximum detail, accuracy, and appropriate pacing for every trip. With small group travel, especially with tours of distinction, we are able to easily to venture "off the beaten path" or visit interesting places while getting around by special means; activities that will only enrich your travel experience. Pacing is also very important. While many/most of our travellers can be described as 'mature' (45+), our trips are VERY busy with lots of moving around, with walking tours of towns and cities, some long days, and possibly remote locations; our travellers choose us because they prefer tours that are NOT slowed down specifically for people with serious mobility issues. If you are uncertain about your suitability for any of our tours, please contact us.
Our professionally-guided tours include shared accommodation in three- and four-star hotel properties. Two meals per day-breakfast and dinner-are provided on all tours; some tours include some lunches. All transportation while on tour is included, plus sightseeing/entrance fees as specified in our day-by-day itineraries. Porter service, where available, is also included. Arrival/departure transfers are included for all Land & Air clients, including early arrivals / late departures if extra hotel nights are booked through us. All gratuities for hotel staff, meals, coach captains, and local guides are included.
Our clients are a particular brand of unique individuals: interesting, curious, active, and often very well-travelled singles, couples or friends. Our English-speaking tours attract travellers mostly from Canada and the USA, but we're delighted when travellers join us from the UK, Australia, or New Zealand (among others). Though some of our advertising includes references to 'tours for seniors,' this does not mean that our itineraries are in any way slowed down (see above entry under 'Itineraries'). Our tours are open to adults of all ages, and the large number of 'mature' travellers (45+) who join us are attracted by our busy programs and ability to move around a lot, efficiently and agilely, in a small group of adventurers who like to be 'on the go.'
If you're travelling alone our twin share program saves you money as long as you don't mind sharing a room. If you would prefer having a single room while on our tours you also have the option to pay a single supplement. For travelling friend groups we request a twin room, or even triple share accommodations which are subject to availability. If you have something slightly or drastically different in mind, let us know what you're thinking-we can then customise trips for your club, group, company, extended family, or class reunion.
Our accommodation is chosen to reflect our clients' desire for clean, well-located, three and four-star properties with private bath facilities. Though all our hotels, inns, and lodges are carefully chosen our tours are not about accommodation, as are most beach holidays. Hotels are for laying down your weary head; they shouldn't be the main focus on tour.
