Heritage Vacations

UNESCO World Heritage sites were created in 1972 by the United Nations Charter. They are sites of such cultural significance or natural beauty that they must be preserved for future generations to enjoy. We should all gain a greater appreciation of who we are and where we came from as a human race. We’ll explore these portions of history in ways that make for great travel itineraries. Hungary, the United Kingdom, Ecuador, Czech Republic, Egypt, Iceland, Germany, Latvia, South Africa, Northern Ireland, China, Japan and countries in all other regions of the world have contributed to our tapestry of humanity.
