Upcoming Departures

We are excited to return to Egypt in 2023 and Israel and Central Asia in 2024!
Our June tour of Turkey and Greece transported ISAC travelers to the very intersections where East meets West. In October of 2022, we set out even further, across the Mediterranean, to explore the impact that the Phoenicians had on the region. We wrapped up 2022 with a grand tour of Egypt. In 2023/4 we set our sights on Israel, Egypt, and Central Asia! Our return to Egypt in November of 2023 is already sold out! Registration is currently open for our Israel tour, and details on Central Asia are coming soon!
