escort Journeys By Interest

At Learning Journeys we believe in a new kind of vacation. Our unique journeys help you explore and develop your skills and interest, travel the world, give back to the community and ultimately re-connect with yourself.

The destinations are chosen specifically to make practicing that skill more accessible, and more fun.  Typical skills offered are health and wellness, cooking, photography, art, birding and wildlife, language study, architecture, music, dance and more.  Programs range from beginner to professional certification. You will even have the opportunity to attend off the beaten path festivals in your specific area of interest which will take your learning immersion to new heights! 

Community service and sustainability is at the core of the Learning Journeys mission. In addition to hands-on interactive classes, we work in the local communities, helping to  improve lives and our planet.  Destinations are chosen for their exceptional beauty, abundant wildlife, accessibility to expert practitioners , and generally fun places to visit! The destinations are near and far-North America, Latin and South America, Europe, India, Asia, Australia and more.

Finally, just as you remember specific meals from a trip taken many years ago, your ability to recall information is enhanced when combined with a unique setting.
Perillo's "Learning Journeys" are an excellent value for money and an investment.

Getting away from your everyday home-life allows you to concentrate on your skill.  And joining people with the same, or more advanced skill levels, encourages you to reach ever-higher levels of accomplishment.   We offer both private journeys as well as scheduled departure dates, where guests know they’ll be traveling with others of the same interest.

It all starts with a few questions so we can provide you with the perfect program. Click on Begin Your Journey and you are on your way!
