The yachts and other vessels we charter offer exclusivity and luxury, and we never combine our groups with other organizations. With our 85% return rate, we are proud that our archaeology tours – learning vacations offer a rich educational experience, the camaraderie with fellow travelers who share like interests, and of course, a healthy dose of fun.

 

‘It’s hard to return to earth after being in heaven with Far Horizons’ – Alberta Chulick

 

‘Every time I pass a group of people on one of those traditional tours (30-40 people straggling along behind a tour leader who’s so far ahead of them that the leader is holding aloft a little flag and communicating via a microphone), it makes me think of supermarket bread. Mass-produced. Conveyor belts. Completely unmemorable.  Far Horizons trips are like artisan bread – small batches, hand-crafted, full of flavor, meant to be savored’. – Tony Navarrete
