What to Expect
Active activity level
Somewhat Different Cultural Immersion
Each Vantage Adventure is designed to help you fully experience local culture and to get out and explore while keeping active. We find these are the two most fulfilling and rewarding ways to transform any trip into an adventure, and into the experience of a lifetime. To that end, we’ve rated each trip to indicate the level of cultural immersion and physical activity, with “1” being the lowest and “3” being the highest.

CULTURAL IMMERSION: Your amazing once-in-a-lifetime Around the World adventure gives you the opportunity to experience a variety of cultures, cuisines, and languages as you encircle the globe. You have many chances to interact with local residents and sample local foods during excursions, and Cultural Discovery events and activities.

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY: We employ many kinds of transportation throughout our adventure, including planes, motorcoaches, limousines, cable cars, and funiculars. During many tours, there is easy to moderate walking. Because of the great variety in this adventure, the activity level shown should be considered an average, with many, if not most excursions well within the capabilities of a reasonably fit traveler. Our most strenuous walks will be around Iguassu Falls and at Machu Picchu, in the Sacred Valley, where we encounter uneven terrain, dirt roads, paths, paving stones, and high altitude. Our adventure takes us through many airports; in larger cities, such as Los Angeles and Johannesburg, they can be tiring because of security lines and check-ins.

PACING: 10 countries on 5 continents in 36 days, with two 1-night stays, five 2-night stays, four 3-night stays, and two 4-night stays. There are 13 flights between destinations, ranging from just under one hour to 19.5 hours. The longest transfer days involve about 8 hours of travelling by train and/or coach, with breaks for sightseeing.

EASTERN & ORIENTAL EXPRESS: There is no smoking on the Eastern & Oriental Express, but you may smoke on the outside observation car. Compartments on the train are compact, and room for storing luggage is limited. We recommend that you pack a small or medium bag for the train journey. The remainder of your luggage will travel in the baggage car; you will have no access to it during this segment of your adventure. The train is very security conscious and has a discrete security presence on board. With a high ratio of staff to passengers, stewards are aware of who should and should not be on board. Personal safes are fitted in some compartments, and the steward can lock the compartment from the outside when necessary. Your primary contact aboard the train is the Train Manager, whose job it is to meet all your needs. Each carriage has a steward or attendant available 24 hours a day. The maitre d' supervises the dining arrangements, and bar staff and waiters take care of meal and drink service. Gratuities are entirely at your discretion.

SPECIAL FACTORS: This adventure covers 10 countries on 5 continents, spanning 2 hemispheres. Expect to encounter a range of temperatures as you travel the world, from tropical to Mediterranean. Since you will be traveling in September and October, the countries you visit in the southern hemisphere (South Africa, Argentina, Brazil, and Peru) will be in the spring season.

Important Notice: The above day-by-day itineraries are preliminary and therefore subject to change. If changes occur while on tour, you will be notified by your Vantage Adventure Leader or local representatives at the destination.

Please Note: The hotels listed are preliminary and subject to change. Although we contract our hotels a year in advance, unforeseen situations do occasionally occur. Should it be necessary to change a hotel, one of equal quality and value will be substituted. You will receive verified hotel information with your final itinerary.

Note: That hotel ratings are based on the Hotel and a leading travel industry authority on hotels throughout the world.
