Looking for something
new and unique?
Don’t just visit the farm…help the farmer milk the cow, and then enjoy a good old fashion breakfast in the farmhouse kitchen. You may also enjoy getaways for summer theater, Maine lobster bakes, bird watching in the Hamptons, a train ride to the Berkshires, county fairs, fall foliage tours, Montreal’s Botanical Gardens, museums, lighthouses, Quebec City celebrations, sugar-on-snow in Vermont, and holiday spectaculars.
Since our founding, we have also offered tours to every continent including Germany, Egypt, China and South Africa. Perhaps you might consider a human rights themed tour to Germany, or the rebuilding of national parks in South Africa? Yes, we go there!
