2020 NO RISK Deposit Policy:  Many of our tours sell out, sometimes over a year in advance even though we do not have firm dates, pricing or itineraries.  For travelers wanting to put down a deposit for a 2020 tour, we have a FULL REFUND POLICY, NO QUESTIONS ASKED.  Here is the policy:  For 2020 tours, we only ask for a $100 per person deposit.  A deposit guarantees a place on a tour.  When we publish the tour description, with prices, dates and itinerary, we will notify those who have placed a deposit.  For up to 21 days after they have been notified, they may request and will get a full and prompt refund of any payments made. 

Many of our tours sell out well in advance.  Once you go on a Traveling Professor small group tour you will see the reason why.  You'll also see why we have so many return travelers. We love our old friends and we love to make new travel friends!  Every tour is different but we usually have a good mix of solo and accompanied travelers.  Everyone feels welcome!
