Come Travel with Us: Seattle University Alumni Tours

Posted by Miranda Benson on Wednesday, August 3, 2016 at 4:09 PM PDT

The wind at your back, towering mountains to your left and right, and the mythic Machu Picchu lies before you. It’s not a vision brought on by the summer heat—it’s just a scene from our Peru: Ancient Land of Mysteries alumni tour. Our Peru tour is just one of the many upcoming trips that dare you to explore—with the Seattle U community by your side.

The Peru tour is unlike any other: iconic Machu Picchu is surely a highlight, but there are also little known gems to explore, like the Floating Islands of Lake Titicaca and the Ollantayambo Ruins. Cuzco, the former capitol of the Inca Empire, lets visitors see how the ancient and modern worlds come together in the markets and historical sites. And with an optional extension of the tour, you can explore one of earth’s greatest treasures: the Peruvian Amazon. Learn more about this once in a lifetime trip by attending our Peru presentation at Seattle U on August 23—register here.

But if you’d prefer hilltop feasts and serenades on canals, the Reflections of Italy Tour may be the one for you. Visit all of Italy’s icons—the Colosseum, Murano Island, Michelangelo’s David—and go beyond the attractions by visiting seven of Italy’s best cities over ten days. If this sounds like your dream vacation, learn more by watching the pre-recorded webinar or reading the trip brochure.

Would you like something a little more relaxing? Then our premium cruise on the Rivers of Wine tour is more your style. Enjoy the best views and wine in the Pacific Northwest while sailing along the Columbia and Snake rivers. Exclusive wine tours and tastings are the centerpiece of the tour, but they won’t stop you from adventuring—journey along the route of the Lewis & Clark expedition, enjoy daily excursions, visit historical vineyards, and experience plenty of culinary escapades. With endless wine and unbeatable views, each day on this tour is a new opportunity.
