The joy of traveling increases when discoveries are shared, and has always been one of the foundations of Vantage Deluxe World Travel. Founded in 1983 by Henry Lewis to provide a better choice for groups of adult travelers looking for high-value, luxury accommodations, Vantage has helped more than 1 million people traveling independently or in groups to create lasting memories. In 2018, we are proud to celebrate our 35 years in business and offer travelers like you more than a dozen more options to experience the world with them.
With a fleet of 5-star river cruises, including the MS River Voyager, launched in March 2016, Vantage has earned a repeat loyal customer base and owns approximately 5% of the European river cruise market. Each of our luxury ships has only 134-176 passengers, making it an intimate and enriching travel experience, as do our regional experts’ relationships with local suppliers. Savings from our global offices in Budapest, China, Croatia, South Africa, and South America are passed on to consumers for the best value. In addition, we have exclusive relationships with other luxury operators to take our tours on the new 126-person Duoro Serenity 2017 in Portugal in 2017, and the 78-traveler Frederic Chopin on the Elbe River in Germany. Vantage also offers a wide range of diverse experiences around the world, including small boat cruises to destinations such as Greece, Asia, and Antarctica; and an exciting new brand launched in 2016, Vantage Adventures. With active small-group adventures designed to bring you closer to nature and enjoy authentic cultural experiences, trips include African safaris, Zodiac boat trips in Antarctica, learning about art and music in Cuba, and much more. More unforgettable is Vantage’s global team of local and regional experts. Adventure leaders and cruise directors guide your discoveries and show you the iconic sites of a destination while presenting you with unexpected gems.
