OK, we’ll admit it. We get really excited every time we launch a new trip around here, but we are particularly excited about our latest — Around Australia.
Australia is a highlight on many of our trips, especially our classic Around the World expeditions — but this is the first time we’ve focused solely on the best this continent has to offer. If you’ve ever wanted to explore the Land Down Under, this is the time!
For 20 days in July 2014, we’ll jet around the coasts of Australia (the Great Barrier Reef, Ningaloo Marine Park), dipping into the Outback to experience Uluru (Ayers Rock), and wander through its vibrant, fun-filled cities (Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne). As an added bonus, we’ll spend a few days on gorgeous, remote Kangaroo Island and explore the infamous, colorful history behind the old penal colony at Port Arthur, Tasmania.
This exclusive Around Australia expedition is simply not to be missed. Perfect for families and those seeking a summertime retreat, this journey is on sale now for just 46 guests.
Every traveler has a preferred way of planning a dream trip. Some like to talk through their ideas with an expert source. Others like to browse online materials like brochures and travel blogs. And for busy professionals, email is the easiest way to get answers fast.
However you prefer to learn about our travel opportunities, we have you covered. We recently redesigned our brochure request page to make it easier than ever to plan for our trips. You can view our full-color brochures online for each expedition. Or you can leave your phone number, and we’ll call you for a chat. If, like us, you prefer to celebrate your trip planning, order a DVD and a few full color brochures, perfect for sharing with family and friends.

We had the pleasure of having New York Times bestselling author Patricia Schultz of 1,000 Places to See Before You Die on one of our first Around the World trips with Four Seasons last fall. A veteran travel journalist, Schultz just penned this great review of her trip in Travel Weekly, calling our partnership with Four Seasons “a match made in jet-setter heaven.”
“The common denominator for any of these expeditions is that accommodations, convenience and service are always the best available,” Schultz writes. “But the true luxury is undoubtedly the chance to savor the local culture, heritage and people of the world’s far-flung corners…TCS guarantees that it happens in an authentic and spontaneous manner — at least, they make it seem that way.”
