A Thousand Years of Scotland

History, Heather & the Highlands

Starting at $5,785

Join us this September May 2022 for a memorable trip to some of the most beautiful – and historic – country this side of Brigadoon. Starting with two nights in the majestic English Lake District, with its brooding landscapes and literary shrines to poet William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter, best known for The Tales of Peter Rabbit. En route to Edinburgh, our home for six nights, we’ll pause in the village of Lockerbie to pay our respects to the victims of Pan Am Flight 103, lost to a terrorist bomb in December 1988.

Our Edinburgh home is the Kimpton Charlotte Square, taking its name from the adjacent World Heritage Site and ideally located next to picturesque Old Town. Our itinerary includes a day in the Scottish Highlands, a walking tour of the Old Course at St. Andrews, birthplace of golf, and Glamis Castle, girlhood home of the late Queen Mother. Edinburgh Castle beckons, along with Holyrood House, St. Giles Cathedral and the multi-media extravaganza called Dynamic Earth. We’ve set aside half a day to explore the Royal Yacht Britannia. And another half to tour Scotland’s capital on your own. Visit an art museum or shop the Royal Mile. If you have been to Scotland before, we’ll take you places you haven’t been. And introduce you to a history you cannot beat.

Inventing Florida

From New Spain to the Space Age

Starting at $5,685

Imagine a sun-kissed land of white sugar beaches, tropical forests and Moorish-style resorts built by visionaries like Henry Flagler. Florida – before that other visionary, Walt Disney, replaced Ponce de Leon with Mickey Mouse – and cypress swamps made way for theme parks. This tour does not include Disney World. But it does explore the winter homes and research labs of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford – the fabulous home, circus and art museum established by John and Mable Ringling – Flagler’s Palm Beach – the ancient Spanish settlement of St. Augustine, guarded by the massive ramparts of Castillo de San Marcus. We haven’t forgotten 20th century history. Our itinerary includes a full day tour of America’s spaceport, the John F. KennedySpace Center. And a pastoral outing at the iconic Bok Singing Tower and Gardens, the product of yet another visionary drawn to Florida for its natural beauty.

We’ve squeezed more than 450 years of history – from 16th century pirates to more recent robber barons – into nine days. And we’ve made sure to include free time to experience (re: shop) Palm Beach’s storied Worth Avenue and the Historic District of St. Augustine. Join us for a trip back in time (and away from the northern winter).
