What are people saying about us?

We have begun trips again!

The safety of our travelers and tour guides is our top priority. We are actively following the CDC's guidelines regarding safe travel. We have reorganized the calendar of tours and unfortunately some trips will not be offered on this schedule. If a trip you signed up for is no longer on the schedule, we will give you the option of moving the money to a different trip, putting the money on account for a future trip, or receiving a refund. Please be assured that all funds received for future trips have been deposited by New Directions in accounts that are fully insured by the F.D.I.C.

We will be requiring proof of FULL VACCINATION to participate on our tours.


We can't wait to travel with you again!
