Why Travel Avidly
There are over 10 reasons to make the right choice
Most trips have a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 15 travelers. This way we can get to know each other and create deeper friendships. Larger groups don't allow for this.
Most days we’ll have a private local guide to share with us the country’s history, art, and culture. The guide usually travels with us throughout the trip.
After a small initial deposit, you make monthly payments that fit your budget, paying in full within 90 days of departure.
Caring Trip Leader
Caring Trip Leader
Each trip is led by a leader available to you 24/7 during the trip. His or her primary focus is to provide you with exceptional customer service.
TravelAvidly trips go beyond just the architecture. You’ll experience life like a local by eating in local homes, visiting unique destinations, and experiencing ceremonies, festivals, and events most travelers never see.
Before departure we hold a series of virtual meetings to study the language, food, history, and culture of our destination. You'll have a deeper understanding of where and when you are while we travel together.

What Our Customers Say
OMG I had the most wonderful trip to the Galápagos Islands. This was a land trip, which I’d never really thought was an option. We stayed in authentic hotels, had a full time naturalist, and mostly I made lifelong friends I plan to stay in touch with. Everything was handled for me – and I’m a nervous traveler! All transfers, meals, and our guide was always there when we needed him.
I just came back from a cruise down the Croatian coast and can’t say enough good things about the trip, and about TravelAvidly. Everyone was so friendly, and I felt well cared for. Of course I’ll remember all the magical islands we visited the group dinners, and nights in the hot tub. But our group was so great. No personality problems, we got along famously and I made some good friends.
This was my first time out of the country, so I was pumped to see Paris and Rome. The whole time was magical, and our guides were amazing. Our trip leader kept us all pointed in the same direction, and we had one guide in Paris and another in Rome. But both gave me so much history. I loved it. And touring the Vatican with an expert is the only way to go!
I’d never thought of going to Dubai before. In my mind it was way to exotic! But my girlfriend talked me into it and we had a wonderful time. Went glamping in the desert, but the highlight was visiting the World’s Fair in its closing days. Boy this town was over the top in everything. Jim and TravelAvidly did a great job organizing the trip. All the details were handled so all we had to do was have fun!
