America's Leader in Small Group Travel
Small, Congenial Groups
Each of our tours is custom-designed specifically for small groups, with a balanced mix of sightseeing, traveling, cultural encounters, and free time. Most important, we limit our tour membership to just 12 to 24 guests – guaranteed, both for the freedom, flexibility, and camaraderie that small groups engender, and also so guests may enjoy a more personal and authentic travel experience.
Variety and Quality
We offer a diverse array of fully escorted small group tours and small ship cruises throughout the world, ranging in length from 10 days to three weeks: Europe on and off the beaten path ... coastal, river, and private yacht cruises ... adventures in Africa, Asia ... far-reaching journeys in Australia and New Zealand, the Americas – all with unique features available only to small groups. Whether you travel by land or by sea (or both), you’ll enjoy the same excellent quality, attentive service, and thoughtful planning we bring to every tour.
Our Tour Directors Make the Difference
We believe personal attention is key to an outstanding travel experience, so we’ve ensured that it’s a hallmark of Odysseys Unlimited. It starts with our travel counselors when you reserve your trip then continues on the road with your tour director. Our professional tour directors rank among the best in the business; their love of travel is surpassed only by their desire to share their enthusiasm and knowledge with others. And traveling in a small group means your tour director will have more time to spend with you and more time to share the personal insights that can add so much to your experience. This helps make your trip genuinely special – and different from conventional tours. To read what our guests say about their Odysseys Unlimited Tour Directors, click here.
Since accommodations comprise an important aspect of your trip, we’ve gone to great lengths to select properties that meet our standards of high quality, convenient location, and excellent service. From superb hotels in major cities to unique or historic lodgings too small for conventional tour groups of 40 or more, these accommodations promise to enhance your enjoyment and comfort throughout your trip.

Extensive Included Sightseeing – No Hidden Costs
Our tours include a great deal of thoughtful and engaging sightseeing and activities, from museum tours, float rafting trips, and scenic excursions to home visits, cultural performances, and wine tastings. In major cities there's usually free time to explore on your own after a guided city tour. And traveling from one destination to another isn’t always just a transfer, it’s an added opportunity to visit a local village, historic site, or ancient ruin.
We urge you to compare our tours to those of other travel companies. You’re sure to find lower priced tours – with unwieldy groups of 40 or more, or less than desirable hotels. You’ll also find small group tours labeled “Deluxe” – with prices to match. What you won’t find are tours with the combination of value, quality, superior accommodations and amenities, and guaranteed small groups that we offer.
Most Gratuities Included
Experienced travelers know that tipping is an expected element of worldwide travel; but at times it can become a nuisance or inconvenience. For that reason we’ve eliminated the worry by including in your tour price all gratuities for local guides and drivers, hotel and airport porters, and dining room servers. Gratuities for your Odysseys Unlimited Tour Director and shipboard personnel (if your tour includes a cruise) are not included and should be extended on a voluntary basis, in recognition of truly excellent service.
Guaranteed Tour Prices
All tour prices are fully guaranteed through December 31, 2017.
Fully Refundable Deposits
A deposit of just $375 confirms your reservation, which you can make with a personal check or major credit card: American Express, MasterCard, Discover, and VISA are all accepted. Best of all, your deposit is fully refundable up to 95 days or 125 days before departure (depending on the tour). It's easy to reserve your tour; just call toll-free (888) 370-6765, Monday–Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Eastern Time.
