Like most kids, my 7-year old daughter asks a ton of questions. And like most parents, I do my best to answer them, occasionally dodging some and abbreviating answers to others. When she asked “Mom, what do you do at work? No, I mean what do you DO at work?”, my initial reaction was to spout the canned response I Continue Reading →
What is our number one tip before you book a tour with a tour company? Call the company! We receive probably 95% of our bookings via the Internet without ever having spoken to the traveler. In many cases, we have never even emailed with the individual. And to be honest, that works for us! But Continue Reading →
Each year, we love to take a step back to relish the unforgettable memories we made with all of our incredible alumni. In 2018, we enjoyed an abundance of new experiences, visited new countries, formed new friendships, tasted new flavors, and achieved new goals. We invite you to relive a few special moments from the Continue Reading →
If you have already traveled with us, you probably realize we take your feedback seriously. One of our guests (who has been on many, many trips with us) recently suggested we offer travelers an alternative to getting a t-shirt on a trip. She has a great collection from the past 20 years and said she Continue Reading →

But there is one drawback to travel – the impact it has on our environment. And depending on the way you travel, it, unfortunately, can have rather large ramifications. But don’t fret Continue Reading →
Last year, 70% of our travelers were repeat travelers – this is an incredible statistic, and we are extremely grateful for our alumni’s continued loyalty to Zephyr. Much of our business in the past 20 years has been generated by word of mouth from our alumni, and their stamp of approval is good enough to Continue Reading →
Ever wonder what it would be like to be an adventure travel guide? Yes, it is one of the most fun and exciting jobs out there, but it is still hard work. Even when the guests have a bit of downtime during a tour, you can bet that the guides are running around trying to Continue Reading →
Last fall, Zephyr launched our first Peru: Machu Picchu & Easier Inca Trail Adventure and hosted journalist RoseAnna Schick as one of our guests. She recently published an article in the Winnipeg Free Press about her experience on the trip as well as her interview with our owner, Allan Wright. Here’s an excerpt: “Rather than Continue Reading →
