JOURNEYS Signature Trips

JOURNEYS Signature Trips (JSTs) are distinctive group adventures accompanied by our most experienced staff. Like all JOURNEYS trips, there is always a local guide, and in places where our most expert, best loved guide is also a longtime friend of JOURNEYS, that special individual may be the featured leader. Other times, JSTs are accompanied by a member of our Ann Arbor team.  Timed to witness an extraordinary event or designed to fulfill a travel dream of the leader, these trips are uniquely special experiences. Group sizes range from 8 to 14 participants, and trips often fill quickly. If you have never joined one of these programs, come along on one of the following trips and see how JSTs will strengthen your connection to the worldwide JOURNEYS family.
