It might start with a bucket list. Perhaps you have always wanted to see the Roman Coliseum, the Great Wall of China or Yosemite National Park. For some it could be about an iconic site or grand city like London, Paris, or Sydney, Australia. Others may be seeking out an ancient masterpiece such as Michelangelo’s David or the perfect meal in Italy. Yet, Travel (at its heart) is about so much more than going places.
The trip of lifetime comes in many forms. Our world contains so many experiences for us to enjoy. But there’s one thing those adventures – the soaring peaks, the brilliant sunsets, the lost cities, the dramatic landmarks, and the incredible meals – all share. They remind us what life is all about. These are the moments where you step out of the everyday and gain perspective.
"It would be difficult to imagine taking the Croatian trip with anyone but Jovanka. Her personal background and history with this area of the world made the countries, people and customs come alive. She was willing to share personal stories that provided us with a wonderful glimpse into a world so different than our own."- Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Trujillo (Discover Croatia Tour)
Sometimes life requires you to cast off and move into the current. There’s a lot of truth in the saying that “it’s the not the destination but the journey.”
For many, dreaming is the easy part. Planning a trip can be an overwhelming task given all the details with air, accommodations, transportation, meals, sightseeing and more. Yet, with Collette, the idea of your ‘trip of a lifetime’ moves from a possibility to a reality. They take you to places you may never have gotten to see if you were traveling on your own, or convince you to try the local cuisine that would normally be too daring for you to try. From all the little things that unknowingly become a part of your story, to all the big memories, Collette is there along the way.
From finding the perfect time of year to go, to seeking out the most extraordinary experiences, we’ve seamlessly taken care of all the details. You can say g’day to your next big adventure in Australia, unravel the wonders of South and Central America, or step into the world’s most dramatic landscapes in Africa and Asia. The brochure features tours offered in several countries including Israel, Botswana, Vietnam, Peru, New Zealand, and more! Collette is also providing various tour styles such as spotlights and explorations with the opportunity to extend your tour and experience even more than you imagined.
They say timing is everything so now is the time to set out and explore the world anew; to dive in and discover what else is out there.
