Tanzania and Kenya have quickly become two of our most in-demand destinations. We’ve traveled extensively throughout both countries—from the plains of Maasai Mara to the slopes of Kilimanjaro—to select our favorite safari lodges, wildlife viewing locations and cultural experiences. Look no further than our recommended tours for the very best of Kenya and Tanzania.
A few of our favorite tours are Highlights of Kenya & Tanzania, Best of Kenya and Essence of Tanzania.
One of our in-house Africa travel experts, Leah Reilley, recently returned from an extensive Kenya and Tanzania tour. Read about her trip on our blog.
Portugal remains one of the most under-rated destinations in Europe.
If you haven’t visited yet, here’s what you’ve been missing: excellent food and wine, Roman ruins, Moorish architecture, castles, romantic gardens, Jewish history, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, dinosaur tracks, great shopping, luxury hotels and resorts, and beautiful landscapes from terraced vineyards to volcanic islands.
Sonja Stoerr, one of our travel experts, has just returned from a comprehensive tour of Portugal. Her itinerary, similar to our Exclusive Portugal tour, included Madeira, Porto, the Douro Valley and Lisbon. View Sonja’s photos to learn more about what Artisans of Leisure travelers experience on our private Portugal tours.

Israel is one of our favorite places, whether as a stand-alone destination or in combination with other countries in the region or Europe.

Our two newest tours:
Exclusive Israel features the most upscale resorts in the country, including a new luxury property in the Negev Desert.

We’ve been working for months on our new tours in Belgium and the Netherlands. What can you look forward to? Incredible art and architecture; visits to cheese markets and artisanal breweries; antiques shopping and porcelain factory tours in Delft; visits to gardens and private excursions along the Flower Route; private cruises on the canals of Amsterdam; biking through the countryside; and, of course, the best luxury hotels and expert local guides available.
