Wherever You Go, There UR!

University of Rochester Alumni Association Tours are designed to provide worry-free basics--transportation, transfers, accommodations, some meals, baggage handling, and professional guides--and still allow you time to pursue your individual interests. Escorts drawn from University faculty and staff accompany most tours to provide special services and educational enrichment.

Alumni Association tours are open to all members of the University community and their immediate families. Other relatives and friends are welcome as space permits (these unaffiliated travelers are requested to make a $100 gift to the University).

Mandarin China
October 9­26, 1998

Your journey in Mandarin China includes Beijing, Xian (home of the famous terra cotta warriors), and Shanghai. Between the fascinating tours of Xian and Shanghai, spend five nights on the M. S. Victoria cruising the Yangtze River and the beautiful Three Gorges. This is the area where the world's largest hydro-electric dam will soon submerge the breathtaking scenery forever.

The Ante-bellum South
October 31­November 7, 1998

Cruise from Jacksonville, Florida, to Charleston, South Carolina, aboard the Nantucket Clipper. This trip along the Intracoastal Waterway allows you to glimpse the abundant wildlife in the saltwater marshes as well as grand mansions surrounded by stately moss- covered oaks. Stops at Georgia's secluded Golden Isles (Cumberland, St. Simons, and Jekyll) contrast with visits to the historic cities of Savannah, Beaufort, and Charleston. An on-board naturalist and guest speakers enhance your clipper cruise experience.

Panama Canal
November 10­21, 1998

The luxurious Crystal Symphony is your comfortable base for 12 days of cruising from Barbados to Acapulco via the Panama Canal. On the Atlantic side of the canal, port calls in St. Lucia, Grenada, and Aruba let you experience the sun-drenched Caribbean. On the Pacific side, a stop in Caldera gives you a taste of Costa Rica's unspoiled beauty.

January 15­28, 1999

During the austral summer, Antarctica shows off its majestic landscape and constant variety of wildlife. This glacial wilderness is composed of iceberg-dotted waters, ancient glaciers, mountain peaks, and lively penguin rookeries. This trip is a once- in-a-lifetime chance to experience life at the bottom of the world. Three days in Buenos Aires offer a cosmopolitan introduction to your voyage of discovery.

Enchanting Tahiti
February 9­20, 1999

Visit the South Pacific, the classic vision of paradise. The trip begins in Papeete, where you'll have opportunities to learn about Tahitian culture, flora and fauna, and painter Paul Gauguin, who captured Tahitian life on canvas. Bora Bora, Rangiroa, Moorea, and Raiatea are the ports of call on a seven-night cruise aboard the new M. S. Paul Gauguin. These beautiful islands feature unspoiled beaches and reefs, verdant volcanic mountains, and exotic bird and sea life.
