These trips usually sell out quickly, and details may change. Call the companies to find out exactly what's included. Generally not included in the listed prices: service charges; fuel surcharges; security and visa costs; hotel, car-rental, and airport taxes. We've provided as many of these details as possible.

Prices are per person, for two people sharing a room, unless otherwise noted. The single supplement is the fee charged to solo travelers. Some companies pair singles with same-sex roommates when single supplements aren't available.

Most rates are based on midweek airfare; weekend travel can raise the price. Travel companies usually allow travelers to add extra nights onto an itinerary.

Research each hotel online to make sure it's acceptable. Upgrading is often an option.

We list prices from several airports ("gateways"), but we don't have room for them all. These operators may arrange flights from other cities but may not have the best fares or routes.
