The Panda's were great and the overall trip was handled very professionally. The Guides were excellent, and took us right to the Airport, got our tickets for us, no waiting in long lines, they were very knowledgeable about the History of their Province, and on time.

I just really thought the trip was very good. This was our second Alexander and Roberts trip, and we have been impressed each time. I highly recommend your company to everyone. We love the small group feature, also. As I prepared for this trip, Melanie Delworth was also very helpful.

Tortuguero was amazing and worth the long trip to get there.. We enjoyed the atmosphere at Mawamba Lodge.. The trips by small boat into the national park allowed us to see three kinds of monkeys and lots of reptiles and birds in their natural habitat. Dennis was a knowledgeable guide. Si Como No at Manuel Antonio was a wonderful hotel with excellent rooms, staff and food

They took very good care of me as I was a woman traveling alone, never once did I worry about a thing. It was extraordinary. I am using them again to go to Japan.

Just about everything was great. Our guide Leo was excellent! A+R needs to ensure that all guests are capable of taking care of themselves and their excess bags and not have the guide take care of them.

Stride Review

Who is This Good For?

Alexander + Roberts is a US-based tour operator for the traveler wanting to venture beyond the ordinary in a comfortable manner. A + R is best for those travelers looking for a small-group experience with an added element of luxury. They also offer private journeys, custom itineraries, and fully supported independant travel options.


What Makes This Company Stand Out

Alexander + Roberts has over 70 years of tour experience. In fact, the company was the first to provide guided tours of the former Soviet Union during the Cold War era. Since then, A + R have been pioneers, traveling to new far-flung locations like Burma and Cuba before many other operators.


Where Do They Operate

A + R offers hundreds of trips on six continents, including Asia, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America. They also offer small-ship cruising in the Americas, Antarctica, Asia, and Europe.


How Does It Work?

Alexander + Roberts purposefully keeps their tour group sizes small - maximum 16, for added flexibility and authenticity. Hotels are a mix of unique local and boutique properties, all with a touch of luxury. Most meals are included on their standard group departures and guides are local, with the in-depth knowledge that comes with it.


Why Travel With Them?

If you’re looking for a refined experience that still gets you under the surface of a destination, then Alexander & Roberts could be for you. Their trips are not cheap, but do provide good value with many inclusions and years of experience in the industry.

From Alexander + Roberts

Alexander Harris founded General Tours in 1947 with the conviction that travel could build bridges of cross-cultural understanding. Since our first-of-its-kind tours to the Soviet Union, we’ve remained at the forefront of international travel, helping culturally inquisitive Americans to explore far-flung lands on six continents including new emerging destinations like Tibet, Cuba, Sri Lanka, Myanmar and Uzbekistan.

From the start, we have always strived to understand and anticipate our travelers’ needs. The result is our unique portfolio of enriching journeys that allow you to enjoy the world more.
