It’s hard to return to earth after being in heaven with Far Horizons’

Far Horizons’ Worldwide History Tours

People often ask what separates Far Horizons from other tour companies. With 40+ years in the travel business and extensive first-hand knowledge of our destinations, we can provide our clients with unparalleled individual attention, from the first phone call or email until you return home as a happy and enriched traveler.

We carefully select renowned scholars and leading specialists who will inform, enlighten, entertain, and delight, to lead our tours. Traveling with a maximum of only 13 others allows us to stay in elegant small hotels and dine on creative cuisine in distinctive restaurants that do not cater to tour groups. The yachts and other vessels we charter offer exclusivity, and we never combine our groups with other organizations.

With 85% of our guests being return travelers, we are proud that our archaeology tours offer an unbeatable educational experience, camaraderie with fellow travelers, and of course, plenty of fun along the way.

Whenever you travel (whether with us or not!), we recommend protecting your investment by purchasing travel insurance. You can find out more about what we suggest HERE.)
