Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

PhillyWalkWokEverywhere you look in Philadelphia, American history is abounding. This is the place where the Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. This is the home of the Liberty Bell. This is also the place where the Philly Cheesesteak was born. But Philly cuisine is broader than cheesesteaks and soft pretzels; in fact the city is emerging as one of the country’s finest culinary destinations. You’ll see why on The Cultural Travelers Walk n' Wok tour with an insider's look at the history, culture and food of Chinatown, one of Philadelphia's “foodie” neighborhoods. Chef Joseph Poon will be your guide as you visit several local Asian businesses. After the tour, Chef Poon's team will serve a five course meal featuring a unique Chinese fruit and vegetable carving lesson with Chef Poon. Continue your Philly adventure with a trip outside of the city for a Private Tour of the Brandywine Valley, a tour of Great Gardens, Magnificent Mansions & Wonderful Wines or the Bucks County Countryside.


San Francisco, California

SanFranTrolleyIt’s no wonder that San Francisco is one of the top travel destinations in the world. The City by the Bay beckons visitors with its rare art, interesting architecture, unique landmarks, exciting sports and fabulous dining. The experience of riding on (and hanging off the back of) a cable car or carefully navigating Lombard Street have placed “a visit to San Francisco” on quite a few “bucket lists.” The Cultural Traveler offers a variety of tours to encompass many of the enticements that San Francisco offers. The Gardens, Art & Macy’s tour combines priceless ancient and modern art with dazzling natural wonders. "Foodies" will enjoy a Taste of San Francisco and Macy's tour and the San Jose, Gilroy Garlic, Goat Cheese & Outlets tour as they let their tastebuds take the lead. Experience the exotic pan-Asian flavors of San Francisco on the Asian Adventure & Macy's Tour, take your "crew" on a Family Fun Adventure or a get a week-long pass to all of the top Cultural and Heritage Tourism attractions with the Best of San Francisco Tour.


Sarasota, Florida

Sarasota ThumbThe John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art is the foundation upon which Sarasota’s art scene has been built. The institution was established in 1927 as a gift to the people of Florida and features a 21-gallery art museum, the Ca' d'Zan mansion, the Ringlings' mansion, the historic Asolo Theatre, and two Circus Museums with the Tibbals Learning Center. Additionally, dozens of performing arts centers, including the nationally recognized Sarasota Opera House, historic architecture, fine dining, and visual art displays can be found throughout the city. There’s not much that can rival the city’s art pedigree for top billing. However, Siesta Beach holds its own having recently been voted the number one beach in the USA.


Savannah, Georgia

AfAmericanThe streets and squares that make up Savannah are rich with history, art and tradition. The city’s story embraces an exciting past filled with ghosts, black heritage, and the Civil War, while offering a present day menu of shopping, dining and entertainment. Learn about the city’s historic roots on the African American History Tour, or the History, Heritage and Legends Tour. The entire family will enjoy The Kidding Around Tour which provides access to kid-friendly museums and adventures. Hungry? Take the Savannah Cooks Tour and give your taste buds a lesson in Southern cooking. Don’t miss the Arts & Entertainment Tour which includes admission to the renowned Telfair Museum of Art and a "movie set location" tour of the city.
