I was blessed to experience Grand Tour of Italy just a few weeks ago. It was the most amazing time of my life. I am already planning my next trip. The tour guide, the bus driver, the group, the hotels, the tours, the provided meals, the total experience was better than I could ever have expected. I never felt unsafe in my travels. I would recommend Go Ahead to anyone. Thank you, again!

Went on the America the Beautiful tour in September which started and ended in Denver. It was such an amazing trip in terms of sights and people. We went to national parks such as Yellowstone where saw bison and elk, Arches with beautiful rock formations, and Mount Rushmore. We travel 6 states and over 2600 miles in 12 days. Our tour director, Stevyn Polk, was so informative ,knowledgeable and with a good sense of humor that I and my fellow travelers all are hoping to travel with him again. My fellow travelers bonded during our experience and when I left, felt that I left family. All of which I would love to see and share experiences with again.

The Go Ahead team took such good care of us throughout the trip. Always on time, total comfortable, great recommendations on our free days. The included and optional side excursions they planned were fabulous. It was a true vacation to be able to sit back and just enjoy. Food and wine - excellent. Can't wait for my upcoming trip to experience Ireland with them.

"This Peru travel agency planned and booked a custom trip for me and my wife to Peru in October 2015. The trip included a short stay in Lima, and almost a week in the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Cusco. Their service was outstanding. The planning for the trip was perfect, and we relied entirely on them as we had not been to Peru before. They also went beyond the call of duty by getting a reservation at a good hotel in Lima even though there was a huge convention of the world bank in town at the time. They persisted until they found a cancellation. they even booked two good restaurants for us in Lima. The guides they provided were also excellent, including one who was truly outstanding.

I never would have located this company except through Zicasso. Two years ago we made a trip to Brazil and we looked and looked for a travel agency of this kind and never did find one. I would highly recommend using Zicasso to find the appropriate agency if you are traveling somewhere that you have not previously been to, or if you do not have an agency you are satisfied with."

Our trip to Peru was planned perfectly, thanks to our travel agent! He was quick to respond to all of my needs & was very flexible. The hotels and the guides he arranged were great! We couldn't have asked for or imagined a better experience in this magical country!

    About Go Ahead Tours

    Go Ahead Tours offers guided group tours around the world and on all seven continents. With 25 years of experience, they've built up an impressive array of itineraries and guides. 

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Groups never number more than 35 and may be as few as 14. Go Ahead calls this their 'Right Size Advantage.' A number of specialty trips include food and wine tours, religious heritage tours, family tours, nature & wildlife tours, and walking tours. They will also take you to special events such as Oktoberfest in Germany, Carnival in Venice, or New England fall foliage tours. 

    As part of EF, Education First, Go Ahead tours specialize in cultural immersion and making connections, whether with locals or other tour members. 

    Go Ahead Tours also promises value: if you can find a similar tour at a cheaper price, they'll match it, making it a good choice for budget travelers.  

    Who Travels With Them?

    Go Ahead is based in the US, and thus attracts mostly American travelers to their trips. Their age range is varied, but most travelers tend to be middle aged.  

    Where Do They Operate?

    Go Ahead offers a wide array of trips to over 100 countries on all 7 continents. Popular destinations include Italy, France, and the United Kingdom. They also offer trips to South America, Asia, and Africa.  

    Why Travel With Them?

    Go Ahead is backed by EF, one of the largest travel companies in the US, so has extensive resources at hand when creating their itineraries. They also use a combination of a 'western' tour director plus a selection of local guides, giving the traveler a glimpse into local life while still maintaining quality and comfort. 

    About Lost World Adventures

    Founded in 1987, Lost World Adventures offers private and customized trips to South and Central America and Antarctica.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Your guide will get to know you before beginning to plan your customized experience. If you want to have a relaxing beach vacation, they can arrange that. Or if you’d rather hike up the adrenaline, they are able to offer that as well.

    Who Travels With Them?

    They accommodate anyone from honeymooners to large groups. Trips are generally in middle price range - you won’t find tremendously budget items here, but they do their best to craft a trip based on all factors, price included.

    Where Do They Operate?

    They are focused in South and Central America, with a variety of trips from beach vacations to Costa Rica, food tours in Argentina, or Machu Picchu adventures. They are also among the few small companies providing cruises to Antarctica.

    Why Travel With Them?

    For the variety of trip type and theme you can choose from. They have food and wine tours, adventure tours, beach getaways, and cruises - all of which are customizable to your likes and dislikes. If you’d prefer not to overly customize, they have pre-set itineraries as well.
