AIA Tours

AIA Tours are designed for inquisitive travelers not necessarily professional archaeologists, who wish to learn from experts who are chosen for both their knowledge and ability to deliver lively, informative talks and to be engaging hosts.

AIA travelers enjoy learning firsthand about cultural history by viewing splendid archaeological sites, art, architecture, and museum collections. AIA Tours offers distinctive land-based trips, including a few easy to moderate hiking adventures, as well as cruises aboard small, elegant ships and riverboats.

On our land-based trips, the average group has a maximum of just 12 to 16 guests plus your AIA lecturer, and trip manager/local guide. Relax, learn, and enjoy your journey. At each carefully-chosen hotel we avoid one-night stays whenever possible, instead staying two to four nights, for a trip pace that allows ample time to explore and absorb. Our accommodations provide comfort, charm, and proximity (wherever possible) to the important sites.

Cruises are aboard comfortable to luxurious small, yacht-like vessels with between 12 and 92 cabins. Unpack usually once and travel with ease, docking in the heart of smaller, historic ports, close to each extraordinary site.
