35 Years as a Family Company

“Vantage is coming full circle as a family travel company,” said Patricia Lewis. “When my husband, Henry Lewis, started Vantage Deluxe World Travel in 1983, he recognized that people like his own parents were changing the face of retirement by staying active and eager to see the world, and were ready for a travel company that was ready to serve them. Now,” she said, “as the company approaches its 35th anniversary in 2018, we’ve gone from the serving the World War II generation to taking their children, grandchildren, and even great-grandchildren to places like Normandy, where they learn the story of D-Day in a way that’s both educational and exciting – touring the landing beaches in authentic World War II vehicles, snacking on Army-type rations, and seeing where our troops actually came ashore.”

She notes that, just as Vantage was at the forefront of travel for the active mature audience of 35 years ago, the company is growing and changing to be the leader in multigenerational family travel. Itineraries like our Culinary Delights & Historic Treasures on the Seine cruise include complimentary onboard bikes; and our new exciting North America adventures are designed for the family on the go with convenient Saturday-to-Saturday departures. Check out Canyonlands of the American Southwest or Wild West Adventure: Yellowstone, Grand Teton & U.S. Monuments, which can be combined for twice the exploration – at a significant savings. The two-in-one family adventure is called America’s Majestic National Parks, Canyonlands & Monuments. Heading north across the border, are two similar adventures: Majestic Canadian Rockies by Train, Seaplane, & Ferry and Heart of the Canadian Rockies: Banff, Jasper & Lake Louise. Combined, they’re known as Grand Canada Adventure: Rockies & National Parks.

No matter whether you choose a land tour, like a heritage trip on Ireland: A Deluxe Journey to the Emerald Isle or Israel & Jordan: Cultural Mosaics & the Holy Land, or one of our unforgettable Africa adventures like Cape Town to Namibia: African Winelands, Dunes & Skeleton Coast, there is something special in store for you and your family.
