Our Trips

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

– Alberta Chulick

All Worldwide 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 are able to provide our clients with unparalleled individual attention, starting with the first phone call or email until you return home, a happy and enriched traveler.

We carefully select PhD scholars as our study leaders, renowned specialists who will inform, enlighten, entertain and delight. 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. 

For your enjoyment, you can spread out in the buses we use, relish large rooms even if you are a single, and savor close-up attention from our study leaders who are with you from the first day of the tour until the last – 24/7. 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.

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.
