Taking a tour is the best way to learn about the world around you. Our tours make it easy to get to the heart of a destination. We utilize a rich network of local Tour Directors, historians, and experts to create one-of-a-kind journeys for curious travelers. Each trip offers the perfect balance of carefully planned activities and free time to explore your interests, so you’ll return home with memories that last a lifetime.
We know it’s the little things that will make your tour special, and our passion lies in getting the details right. Each of our itineraries is handcrafted by our team of travel experts to be an exciting and memorable experience from the moment you are greeted by your Tour Director until you return home.
You can trust your Tour Director to handle all the logistics and give you tons of background on each place you visit on tour. From knowing where to get the best cup of coffee to giving a dramatic retelling of the history behind an iconic landmark, your Tour Director will be your go-to expert.
In addition to your Tour Director, who knows his or her region inside and out, your local guides will be true experts on their specific cities, destinations, or attractions. We are able to use the best of the best and most experienced guides, adding another level of expertise and hospitality to your sightseeing.
The excitement of exploring the world can really tire you out. If you are on a multi-day tour, our team selects each of our hotels based on comfort and location to ensure you can rest easy each night of your tour. We also take great care in choosing local dining options which feature local staples and specialties.
We can get you where you want to go—it’s that simple. Thanks to our relationships with the best motor coach operators in the nation, we are able to offer a wide range of luxury transportation options that can get you to and from your destination comfortably and at a great value.
Each time we craft a new tour, our Team visits each destination to find the best experiences. We meet with restaurant owners, test out hotels, sip samples at local wineries, follow scenic paths for future walking tours and more—to ensure that each moment of your tour meets our standard of exceptional quality.
Frequently Asked Questions
What if a tour is sold out?
We’ll always encourage you to USE THE WAIT LIST! When a trip fills, and it can happen very quickly, we begin a wait list. If there’s enough participation to fill a second bus, we’ll let you know. We’ll also check with our wait list, should we have any cancellations, fielding those requests in the order in which they were received.
Can you find me a roommate on multi-day tours?
We get asked this question a lot, and the answer is always yes! Don’t let the fact that you are single keep you from signing up for a tour. The majority of people who travel with Lifestyle Venture Tours are single. They sign up for a tour, we assign them a roommate, and they often go on to become lifelong friends. We have decades of success matching roommates.
Can I pay single supplement on multi-day tours?
If you really feel that you’d like to have your own hotel room, consider paying a single supplement. A single supplement is just the additional 50% on the hotel room expense that you would have shared with a roommate.
If the tour includes a ticket, when will I recieve it?
All tickets, passes, etc. will be distributed on day of departure. When you purchase a tour, your confirmation is automatically sent to you via email upon checkout. This is for your proof of purchase.
How do I pay for a tour?
You can pay for your tour by credit card via this secure website (easiest) or over the phone. We do not keep your credit card information on file. Most reservations for multi-day tours require a deposit, with the balance to be paid closer to the date of the tour.
Where do I meet the bus? What kind of bus?
Our current departure locations vary based on the tour. Please see itenerary for exact locations and times. We are pleased to offer 36 and 56 passenger luxury buses for your transportation needs. They are equipped with DVD player/video monitors, WiFi, lavatory, overhead lighting and airflow control.
