KINGDOMS OF SOUTHEAST ASIA TOUR

The culture and history you’ll experience will leave you with a greater appreciation for the Southeast Asian way of life.
JAPAN: PAST AND PRESENT
From the bright lights and bustling cityscape of Tokyo to the serene calm of Buddhist temples, this tour of Japan presents a culture and history thousands of years in the making. You’ll travel across the country on the famous shinkansen bullet train. Take part in Japanese tea ceremonies, meet ama pearl divers, and experience the beauty of natural bamboo forests.
CULTURAL TREASURES OF JAPAN
From its ultra-modern technology to ancient religious temples, Japan has a culture like no other. You’ll experience firsthand why Japan is such an influence on the world stage. Partake in a tea ceremony, explore a Buddhist temple and Matsumoto Castle, absorb the beauty of the Golden Pavilion, and much more. During your tour, you’ll enjoy authentic Japanese food and beverages while traveling like a local on the world-famous bullet trains.

Forget the zoo; see some of Africa’s most beautiful animals in person during this once-in-a-lifetime tour. You’ll embark on no fewer than eight different safaris where you’ll have a chance to spot the “big five” of African wildlife. In between your safaris, you’ll enjoy such experiences as an authentic bush dinner under the stars and a stop by the breathtaking Victoria Falls.
