What was unexpected was the people that they met and the cultures that they experienced along the way. "The entire trip was fabulous. The highlight was actually the cultural encounters that we had. I expected the animal part of the safari but our visit with the Bushman was beyond anything I could imagine and my kids loved playing soccer, volleyball, and frisbee with the locals. Our guide Dominic was unbelievable. He was incredibly knowledgeable but was also a truly amazing person.

My favorite experience was hunting with the Bushman and learning about their culture. We also had a great interaction with some women in the...

Big name mega-sights such as the Eiffel Tower and the Taj Mahal battle it out with lesser-known hidden gems for a prized place in the top 10, making this a comprehensive bucket list! As the program director of Asia I could not have agreed more or been happier with what they picked for the #1 spot: Angkor Wat.  I've had the good fortune to visit Angkor Wat more than once and it never fails to amaze. If anything, this mega complex seems to...
