Why Classic Escapes?


Our team represents decades of travel industry experience. We have traveled worldwide; our itineraries are designed based on first-hand knowledge of our destinations.


We offer trips to suit a range of abilities, interests and needs; whether your travelers want an easy and pampered vacation or a rugged adventure, we can plan the perfect itinerary for you! We have sent travelers to all seven continents.


A good guide will provide a good trip. A great guide can provide the trip of a lifetime! Classic Escapes carefully selects individuals who have both extensive knowledge of their field and a passion for sharing that knowledge with others. We work frequently with internationally reputed guides like Rudy Zamora in Costa Rica and Graham Johansson in Southern Africa, and have equally distinguished guides in all the destinations we offer.


Our travelers often want more than the typical ‘tourist’ experience – and that’s what they get. We provide opportunities to visit schools and communities, meet leading conservationists and wildlife researchers, and even participate in volunteer service at your destination through our Global Philanthropy programs.


We are available 24/7 to provide the infrastructural support so vital in travel. You can leave the details to us. Being a family business, you can speak to the owners any time of the day or night…true personalized service!


We believe that a wonderful ecotourism experience should be within financial reach. Our Great Escapes offers great destinations such as the Galapagos Islands, Tanzania and India to the budget conscious without compromising on quality and care.


Many of our guests return to travel with us again and again. They know that they’re in good hands with our team, and that we take the time with each individual to create the trip that’s right for them.


We feel travel is the best tool for building the mutual respect, awareness and understanding that are vital to preserving this planet for future generations. With this in mind, we strive to make our relationship with the people of our destinations a mutually beneficial one, both economically and personally.


A portion of the proceeds from every Classic Escapes journey supports wildlife research and conservation in the field through the Classic Escapes Conservation Fund. We go out of our way to partner with lodges and suppliers who use environmentally sound practices and support sustainable economic development. We also introduce you to world-renowned researchers eager to share their latest findings.


At Classic Escapes, we know that the quiet moments often linger longest in the memory. Whether it’s watching glittering hummingbirds from your balcony in Costa Rica or gliding past shy antelope on a canoe safari in Botswana or getting eye to eye with a seal on the beaches of the Galapagos Islands, we strive to bring you those moments when you will truly feel a connection to nature. That is what makes a classic escape from Classic Escapes.
