Civil Rights—A Journey to Freedom
November 5 — November 9, 2022
Join us for an intimate and essential opportunity to explore the Deep South with an informative program that highlights America’s civil rights movement in Alabama. On this five-day journey, discover sites that advanced social justice and shifted the course of history. Stand in the pulpit at Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. preached, walk over the Edmund Pettus Bridge where law enforcement clashed with voting rights marchers, and gather with our group at Kelly Ingram Park as 1,000 or so students did in the 1963 Children’s Crusade. Taking a deeper dive beyond the civil rights “highlight” reel, each day offers exclusive, authentic experiences for in-depth knowledge, engaged conversations, and deep listening.
April 8 - 17, 2022
In the lower portion of the vast African continent lies South Africa, a fascinating and diverse country famous for its wildlife, such as the lions of Greater Kruger National Park, and the unique fauna, flora and coastal penguins of the Cape Peninsula.

Discover the realm of the Icelandic Vikings and explore Iceland’s most famous natural treasures and hidden gems. Experience stunning coastlines, pristine black sand beaches, glacier views, magnificent bird cliffs, delightful towns, incredible waterfalls, erupting geysers, tectonic plates, and take a plunge into the healing mineral waters of the Secret Lagoon. Blame it on those long winter nights, or the exceptional quality of locally produced beer and schnapps; Reykjavík’s legendary nightlife, or “jammith” as the friendly locals refer to it, has gained a reputation for being one of the hottest places to party in the world. Iceland is truly otherworldly!
September 3 - 11, 2022

Savor local Chianti wine and home-made pasta, try bread dipped in olive oil, slices of red tomato loaded with fresh mozzarella cheese, basil and sun-cured olives. Enjoy la dolce vita!
December 28, 2022 - January 2, 2023
Berlin, capital of Germany and urban hub since the 13th-century, has emerged as a hip, youthful, and energetic metropolis. It’s a place with a rich and tumultuous history that evolved into the most vibrant and exciting city in Europe. It is not only known for its cutting-edge contemporary art, and architecture, but also for its burlesque shows, decadent parties and underground clubs. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that it’s also one of the best places to spend New Year’s Eve. In an explosion of energy, debauchery and diversity, the city’s ‘anything-goes’ attitude takes hold of the New Year and fireworks light up the evening for an unforgettable night. But don’t take our word for it – join us and find out yourself!
July 29 - August 6, 2022
Who didn't go to sleep dreaming about fearless fairytale characters, setting out on magical adventures in search of true love, to rescue a princess or to slay a dragon?

Let us take you on a fairy-tale journey that visits those places and landscapes. A journey that reveals the history of Neuschwanstein and Chillon Castles, tells the stories of the charming town of Colmar, discovers the romantic Loire Valley and explores Paris, the city of lights.
