Sticking to land is one way to travel, but perhaps you're seeking a different perspective; one from the water or up high with the birds. Cruises, scenic flights and hot air balloons are all part of a popular form of touring that treats you to the world's diverse and vibrant sights. From flying over the depths of the Grand Canyon and the thundering water of Niagara Falls, to cruising past the coastal cities in Croatia and over to the unique animals on the Galapagos Islands, each experience delivers lifelong memories.

With knowledgeable guides to show you the way, you'll have insider access to all the highlights of each destination you encounter. With an ideal position in the sky, plane tours and hot air balloon tours give you a bird's-eye view of iconic sights including Lake Eyre in the Australian Outback, Hawaii's volcanoes and waterfalls, the Christ Redeemer statue in Brazil and the Nile in Egypt. You can even combine a bit of romance to your experience, such as champagne during a hot air balloon flight over Europe's picturesque cities.

Out on the water, cruise tours take the worries out of travel, guiding you from city to city so that you can focus on rest, fun and plenty of sightseeing. Jump aboard your luxury liner or traditional outboard and take to the seas and rivers, encountering historic cities, small riverside villages and breathtaking natural sights. Whether you want to explore the Caribbean with dolphins and secluded bays, journey past New Zealand's towering fiords, or travel down the River Thames past London's riverside sights, your holiday inspirations are never far from being fulfilled. 

Wherever you may roam, through air or along the great wide ocean, taking a tour enables you to relax and let the incredible sights and experiences come your way.
