Tikal National Park

Lake Atitlan - pictured with two of the three volcanoes which serve as a backdrop to this gorgeous lake
(Also pictured is the aerial view of our hotel where we will enjoy three nights along the lake)


Join us for an incredible week exploring the amazing sites of Guatemala.

While most only know Guatemala for the Mayan temples at Tikal, there is so much more to this Central American treasured country.

We will enjoy visits to both Tikal as well as the Mayan temples of Xaxha.  We will enjoy three nights on the shores of the stunningly beautiful lake Atitlan, with its backdrop of three dramatic volcanoes framing its shorelines.

Here we will enjoy a boat ride to visit a native Indian village.

We will also enjoy an opportunity to Soak in the Thermal Baths at Los Thermales, or go kayaking on the lake.

And for an even greater feel of the serenity along the lake, enjoy an opportunity to attend either a spiritual yoga class with a stunning view or, attend a native Cacao ceremony (or attend both)

Also, we will visit two native outdoor markets, one known for its great opportunities to barter/bargain for local handicrafts, while the other is known for the opportunities to watch the locals bargain with each other for their own local goods.

Lastly, an opportunity to enjoy a zipline ride over one of the Mayan temples is a final Wow Experience on this one of a kind tour.

The start of November through the end of April is the dry season in Guatemala, with average highs in the mid to upper 70s and an average of 29 days of sunshine and clear blue skies per month in the dry season.  March is also the Least humid month, so the weather should be quite pleasant during the time period of our tour.

Sat. May 20-Sat. may 27, 2023

With included one night pre tour stay in Pisa, Italy

Cinque Terre

Join us for an incredible week of exploring the incomparable scenic beauty of the Cinque Terre and Portofino regions of Italy. 

On the beautiful Italian Riviera, five villages cling alongside stunning seaside cliffs.  Known as Cinque Terre (Italian for Five Villages), they are fairy tale like visions of pastel hued homes, immaculate little churches, beaches dotted with colorful umbrellas and stunning scenery everywhere you look.

These villages are linked by ferries and trains but the best way to see these quaint seaside villages and dramatic scenery is by a network of footpaths that offer spectacular views of the Ligurian Sea, the wildflowers, olive groves and the spectacular cliffs surrounding it.

The best way to experience the breathtaking beauty of this region is by foot and our tour will feature professionally guided walks to truly experience the sights, sounds, tastes and aromas of this unparalleled region. Our walks are all at low altitudes, just a few hundred feet above sea level with very little ascent, so anyone in reasonable fitness can enjoy each day’s walk.  These professionally guided walks are each between 5 and 8 miles and all feature incredible views and plenty of stops for photos.  We will have opportunities to enjoy lunches with amazing views, local cuisine and fabulous local wines, or liquors at your leisure, during or at the end of each day’s walk. We will even have an included wine tasting to enjoy at the end of one of our walks and we will enjoy an included lunch with a panoramic view during two of our walks.

All of our walks are private for just our group and all are led by a local who will share a local’s knowledge of the region to our private group. Our group is limited to only 12 people, plus 2 trip escorts from S.C.A.T. plus our local walking guides, so our passengers on this trip have the best opportunity to experience this incredible region in the best small group environment.

We will be based the entire week in one hotel, enabling all to unpack just once and enjoy this gorgeous region of Italy. Our hotel is a short walk from charming restaurants to enjoy authentic Italian cuisines and wines with a view each evening, at your leisure and plenty of chic shopping, following our walks, if you desire, or enjoy our hotel’s indoor pool and sun terrace with Jacuzzi, to relax, after our daily walks, or enjoy relaxing on the beach on a lounge chair overlooking the sea, or if you wish, take a dip in the warm sea..  Our hotel is also walking distance to the local train station, making for easy access on the one full free day in our itinerary, for you to visit any of the nearby cities, attractions or return for another day in the Cinque Terre villages at your own leisure.

Late May is the ideal period to enjoy the walks and villages of the Cinque Terre, as the flowers have just bloomed, the average daily temperature is a very comfortable 70 degrees and the summer crowds have not yet arrived.
