Category Group Travel Tours

Guided travel tours are amazing. They are cost-effective travel and take the stress out of travel planning. Best of all—groups often go places, or view sights, that is difficult for individuals to reach or see. This is the case with TravelQuest tours, as our specialties are solar eclipse trips and astronomy-themed excursions to see the wonders of the night sky or the dancing northern lights.

Finding the ideal locations to view a total eclipse of the Sun invariably takes us to the extremities of our planet—from polar latitudes to tropical islands or to remote, seldom-visited places. Chasing the aurora borealis also takes us off the beaten path, to uninhabited, dark-sky regions in Iceland or a ship off the Norwegian coast. This is what we excel at: Designing astronomy-themed tour vacations that provide travelers with the opportunity to experience the wonders of the heavens.

What to Expect on a TravelQuest Tour

When it comes to group travel tours with TravelQuest, just book a trip, get yourself to our Day One rendezvous point, and leave the rest of your journey to us. As a tour company, we take care of all the details. For each destination, we find the perfect balance of quality accommodations, great meals, and comfortable transportation.

If you’re joining us for a solar eclipse expedition tour, we voyage where the path of totality takes us. This means our journey will not be the usual travel trip, because we often journey to extraordinary destinations—ones well off the beaten path. Some of these locales are in regions of the world you might never have considered visiting, were it not for the lure of totality. For views of the stars and northern lights, our small group travel tours head for more familiar regions, but our desire for dark skies takes us to unfamiliar locales.

When on an international travel tour with us, you can leave your guidebook at home. Our local guides provide the background, history, and inside knowledge of the region we’re visiting, and will answer all your questions. They take you inside their city and country by sharing their lives, experiences, and even their own personal stories. Our expert guides are among the best in the travel industry, and their local contacts open doors to sights and events that are often inaccessible to independent travelers.

TravelQuest’s eclipse, aurora, and night sky group vacation tours always include an accompanying astronomer, so you have your own personal guide to the heavens. On eclipse trips, our astronomer’s presence is particularly important. They have witnessed numerous totalities, and if you’ve never seen a total solar eclipse, they’ll help you get the most out of this overwhelming experience.
