With signs pointing to a record-breaking year for globetrotting, the benefits of traveling with a USTOA tour operator are magnified. Every USTOA member is like a worldly, savvy, entertaining, problem-solving best friend: You’ll feel confident placing clients in their hands. It’s reassuring, too, knowing clients’ trips are protected by USTOA’s $1 Million Travelers Assistance Program.

Tour leaders have unparalleled access to experiences most tourists miss. These travel pros create the sense of community so many people crave. And the variety of tour itineraries on the market now is astounding. Whether you’re working with seasoned or inexperienced travelers, USTOA tour operators are your partners in fulfilling travel dreams.

Outdoor Adventure Tours

Expeditions for adventure seekers are as diverse as the world’s natural landscapes. USTOA tour operators ensure guests are geared up for safe, exhilarating experiences, whether they’re cycling in Vietnam with Exodus Adventure Travels or hiking, biking, and kayaking through the ancient fishing villages of Italy’s Cinque Terre with Club Adventures. Guided walks make trips like Alexander + Roberts‘ Easter Island tour or Country Walkers‘ trek in Montana’s Glacier National Park epic. If safari-ing calls to your clients, EF Go Ahead Tours offers a Namibia trip that goes beyond the ordinary with a visit to the non-profit Cheetah Conservation Fund.

Arts & Culture Tours

Culturally immersive Italy tours go layers deeper than the obvious attractions. Book clients on CIE Tours’ Tuscan Treasures tour, and they’ll never forget truffle hunting. Choose Tauck‘s Tuscany, Cinque Terre and Portofino Coast itinerary, and they’ll even get access to some Florence sights pre-opening. VBT‘s guided Sicily biking vacation features a hands-on cooking class. Globus will have Italy dreamers “on cloud wine” during a tasting with a Chianti Hills view on their That’s Amore! Tour. Collette‘s Italy’s Treasures tour veers off the beaten path to the Carrara marble quarries for a look at Michelangelo’s raw materials.

City Escapes

Tour escorts help travelers acclimate to new urban environments quickly. Let Abercrombie & Kent show your clients Spain and Portugal, and they’ll dine with castle owners in Seville. Insight Vacations‘ Highlights of Eastern Europe Tour includes a dumpling-making demo in Warsaw. On SITA World Tours‘ Affordable Japan itinerary, Tsukiji Fish Market, one of Tokyo’s best places for seafood, is a highlight. A desert safari is an unforgettable component of smarTours‘ Deluxe Dubai & Abu Dhabi escorted trip.
