The Discovery Experience

Accommodations, often at distinctive lodgings, are chosen to enhance your experience. Because we're traveling in a small group, we can pass right by the blase hotels. Instead, we'll opt for lodgings combining quality, location and value to keep you immersed in the culture. Our regional staff has hand-picked accommodations whose atmosphere, decorative touches, and genuine warmth reflect the rich traditions of your destination, each dedicated to excellent service and comfort.

Here are some of the unique accommodations you'll enjoy with Discovery Tours:
