Headquartered in Pawtucket, R.I., Collette was founded in 1918 when Jack Collette offered his first tour: a jitney bus filled with travelers on a three-week tour to Florida from Boston for $61.50. Nearly a hundred years later, Collette is still family-owned (helmed by Dan Sullivan, Jr.), and now offering more than 160 escorted, small group and family tours in more than 60 countries on all seven continents.

Among Collette’s worldwide collection of tours is a variety of guided travel choices. No matter where (or how) you want to go, Collette can take you there. From vibrant cities to remote villages, you’ll have the chance to immerse yourself in many other worlds.

As part of a small group on our Explorations line, enjoy accommodations chosen to capture the spirit of the destination, savor spectacular local cuisine, and take the time to explore on your own. Along the way, Explorations sets the stage for the unexpected moments that make travel so special. With just 12-24 passengers, these are the personal adventures that today’s cultural explorers dream about.

Collette's Family tours bring travelers of all ages together to experience the world’s greatest destinations. There’s no better classroom than the world and no better education than taking a walk through history.
