My friend and mentor Alexander Harris founded General Tours in 1947 with the conviction that travel could build bridges of cross-cultural understanding. Since our first-of-its-kind tours to the Soviet Union, we’ve remained at the forefront of international travel, helping culturally inquisitive Americans to explore far-flung lands on six continents including new emerging destinations like Tibet, Cuba, Sri Lanka, Myanmar and Uzbekistan.
From the start, we have always strived to understand and anticipate our travelers’ needs. The result is our unique portfolio of enriching journeys that allow you to enjoy the world more.
A new name to reflect our distinct attributes
We recently introduced a new name for our company, inspired by Alex and my name and designed to evoke our personal approach in crafting upscale journeys filled with genuine engagement, unforgettable exhilaration and personal revelation.
+ Innovative: Our original itineraries encompass a wide range of exotic global destinations.
+ Personable: We’re well-informed and flexible in meeting your diverse needs and desires.
+ Refined: The personal experiences we craft for our small group tours with never more than 16 guests and private journeys are honed by nearly 70 years of expertise.
+ Authentic: We enrich your travels with genuine cultural engagement and real opportunities for learning.
We're committed to value
Providing our guests with superior value has always been and will always remain at the heart of our company. That is why all of our trips include extensive expertly-guided sightseeeing, unique experiences you won’t find on other tours, and congenial meals that reflect authentic regional flavors. Everywhere we go, we search out the finest accommodations to enhance your journey… from the most evocative luxury hotels and historic boutique properties to the best safari camps and small ships.
We often hear from travelers that our guides are the best! They hail from the lands you’ll visit and speak English easily and casually. Because they’re lifelong residents, they have the knowledge and passion to engage you comfortably and more deeply with the people, history, traditions and natural wonders of their homelands.
We hope you’ll make your next journey with Alexander+Roberts… and let us show you the world with our signature style and remarkable value.
