We see many people asking about a tour company that does tours "like RS tours" outside Europe. I thought I would mention this Seattle-area small company that has upcoming tours (November 2017) to Australia, New Zealand, and Cuba (their Galapagos tour is sold out). There is also a listing on their website for Africa in 2018 but no details.
They also go to Europe---mainly special-interest tours, like music---and do river cruises.
The owner, Matthew Brumley, is on our local PBS station on Thursday mornings (I believe Rick does this on the other PBS station in the afternoon). He is in France now and today he was talking about WWI battle sites and cemeteries. But the southern hemisphere tours look like a good option for those who want to skip part of our cold northern winter and head south instead of going to Europe.
