Travel and explore fascinating destinations and unique cultures together.
Besides the educational aspects, alumni travelers find camaraderie and an unusually easy rapport because of similar educational and social backgrounds (although you do not necessarily have to be an alum to take a trip). Some participants also say they save on alumni trips, all of which may explain their growing popularity.
Alumni Group Travel links travelers to school spirit and each other. Alumni travel also has special appeal to those traveling alone. "There is a comfort level knowing that even though they may not know anyone at the beginning of the trip, they have something in common to talk about — their alma mater," says Richard Haymaker. "Ninety-nine percent of the time they end up knowing someone that the other person knows or had the same professor or belonged to the same affinity group. It's amazing to watch these relationships develop. Oftentimes they stay in contact with each other and will travel on a future trip together."
Viking offers quality group travel to alumni and their families and friends, combining learning and pleasure and the camaraderie of like-minded intellectually curious travelers through domestic and international travel. See: Special Interest Travel Themes.
