The first time I traveled with Vantage Travel, it was on a river cruise that started in Basel, Switzerland and ended in the Netherlands in Amsterdam. It was my first time traveling with Vantage and I really enjoyed the experience. But as I’ve continued to work with them, I’ve learned that they’re so much more than a river cruise company. They offer travelers a wide variety of land tours, too – everything from exploring the gorgeous National Parks of North America to animal safaris in Africa. If you’re looking for an adventure experience for your next trip, check out one of these Vantage Travel itineraries:
