Oh, the places we’ve been!

Previous Culturati Tours

For nearly 20 years, our groups have explored the world, immersing themselves in local cultures and cuisine, and enjoying luxurious accommodations. This past year took us to cities we’ve never seen, as well as to a country that’s become a perennial favorite.

When the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture opened in September 2016, we were there. Here’s a peak of our trip.

Black History Tour DC from Traveling Culturati on Vimeo.

Advantage International took a group to Washingon, DC for the grand opening of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture.

In spring 2015, our Culturati traveled to various cities in Italy, where the food and wine were as mesmerizing as the architecture and people. In the fall, our five-star WHUR World Tour group once again visited South Africa.

We started in Johannesburg, soaking in the history of the freedom movement and the culture by day and the international Joy of Jazz Festival by night. We then proceeded to Pilanesberg National Park, where we roamed among the Big Five before heading to Cape Town and Robben Island. Our video captures many of the highlights of the 11-day trip. Several Culturati extended their stay for a few more days and joined us in Victoria Falls and Zimbabwe.

We wrapped up the year in Panama, day-tripping from the Hard Rock Cafe to the rain forest to visit an indigenous tribe in the rain forest. We also took an unforgettable cruise through the world-famous canal.

Here are a few of the scenes we captured along the way…

This mural at Tocumen airport instantly got us in the mood for a good time.

We stayed at the fabulous Hard Rock Hotel in Panama City!

Who knew Panama was so modern?

Panama is the only capital city with a rain forest. We ventured there.
