Custom Travel Tours

Plan a Custom Trip with Your Friends

Haven’t you always wanted to plan a special trip with your family, a close group of friends, “just the two of you”, or perhaps you have longed for a solo trip? Isn’t this the year to take your grandchildren to see the pyramids? Or, your son or daughter to hike the Inka trail and be stunned by Machu Picchu? Didn’t your mother mention she always wanted to see the sun rise over the Taj Mahal, slowly watching it appear out of the mist? Do you want to travel with a group of friends led by a special scholar? Are you a teacher who has always wanted to take a group of students to Belize? Did you know that every year we create once-in-a-lifetime custom trips for our clients?

Why Travelers Choose Us for their Custom Tours…

Though Far Horizons certainly does have some remarkable tours and group travel is marvelous in its own right, sometimes what you really hanker for is a private trip. Years of experience, proven logistical capabilities, and exceptional knowledge of the most remote areas and cultures makes Far Horizons the ideal company to assist you in your journey. Our contacts among the peoples of our destinations, and the scientists that work in each of them, make each of our unique trips a very special and exciting experience!

Whether it’s your own private yacht charter along the remote coast of Turkey, a private tour of Easter Island, becoming familiar with the delights of Laos or Vietnam, finally seeing Jordan’s Petra, witnessing the spectacle of Persepolis in Iran, going back to Guatemala because you never made it to Tikal, or exploring Syria’s stunning Palmyra, we can arrange just about anything for you – and we are very creative. The world is truly your oyster. And, we are here to crack it open for you!

What others are saying about their custom trips…

“Thank you so much for planning the wonderful trip to Lamanai.The bottle of wine made the boat ride back absolute perfect. Mark did a really great job, and other people from our cruise ship thought that Bob was some important dignitary being carried around in his chair. Plus the plane flight was very fun. We’re looking forward to further Far Horizons adventures in Peru. You are the best!”

“Our experience was superb. The guides (we had three) were all terrific – extremely knowledgeable – and the arrangements were perfect. We have done a fair amount of traveling and there is no other trip that we enjoyed more (ours included a week on our own with three other couples sailing off the southern coast). Mary Dell knows Turkey inside out and has great contacts – e.g. the director of the museum at Bodrum who sure knows how to put on an informative show. I have no hesitancy whatever in giving Far Horizons an A+. You will find Turkey amazing and want to go back.”
