Many people say that nothing "grows your mind" as much as international travel. And if you can travel with people you know, possibly from a shared BILL course, with the guidance of first-rate trip leaders on excellent trips provided at a fair price, and also have easy transport to and from the airport, then things are even better.

Our Travel Operators
Travel is provided by Grand Circle Travel (GCT) and Overseas Adventure Travel (OAT), two affiliated and highly respected trip operators, traveling as what they call an "affinity group."
- Grand Circle Travel trips can have up to 38 travelers, and the pace is somewhat slower, with slightly later daily departures and earlier arrivals. They call walking their "signature mode" that allows access to many sites, but they "balance any lengthy walking tours with plenty of time to refresh and rejuvenate".
- Overseas Adventure Travel land adventures, on the other hand, have from 10 to 16 travelers, are somewhat more active, and visit more "adventurous" destinations off the beaten path, occasionally requiring slightly longer walks over uneven surfaces
