Your land journey options are only as limited as your imagination. Joy in the Journey Travel represents several tour and vacation companies. We also work with hotels, resorts, villas and car rental companies so we can plan your journey piece by piece if you wish.
Guided tours, also known as 'escorted travel 'offer excellent value when you look at all the components that are included. The tour operators can buy in volume and pass the discounts along to you, in some cases as much as 30% compared to the cost to do the trip independently! But the value goes beyond price, every aspect of the trip has been carefully planned for you, you won't have to worry about choosing a hotel, you will avoid language barriers and the stress of driving and navigating in unfamiliar territory. You will avoid long lines at the most popular sights, and instead get front of the line service. Your tour guide and local guides will have inside information and stories to tell that will make the destination come to life. There are many guided tours designed for families with plenty of kid friendly extras. Guided tours are one of our specialties and we truly think you will find joy in the journey when you travel this way.
Customized Guided Tours
We can plan a customized guided tour if you prefer, your journey can be specifically designed around your personal interests or heritage. Some examples of customized tours would be:
- A Heritage Journey to the home of your ancestors.
- A Literary Journey to tour the lands that your favorite author wrote about, perhaps even a trip to the author's hometown.
- A special interest trip. Perhaps you want to play golf in Ireland or go on a personalized safari where you spend the whole time viewing elephants. Let us know what your interest is and we'll plan your trip around it.

The word vacation often brings images of beaches to mind. All Inclusive beach front properties allow you to relax and enjoy as much or as little activity as you wish. The definition of what all-inclusive means varies somewhat from one resort to the next, but in general this means that lodging, drinks and meals, entertainment, recreational activities, gratuities and occasionally transportation are all included in the price. Think of a cruise, without the ship. There are family friendly resorts as well as adult only properties. Let us find you the perfect place be a beach bum!
