OUR PRESIDENT & FOUNDER'S MESSAGE It’s my great pleasure to welcome our Globetrotters back to the world of travel, and to continue the journey we started in 1970. Back then, Goway Travel was a one-man operation in a small apartment in Toronto, specializing in ‘fun holidays for the under 30s.’ Today, we plan to soon employ over 400 staff on three continents, who bring expertise from around the world. Some of our ‘under 30s’ have grown with us into seasoned Globetrotters, and we’ve picked up many adventurous passengers along the way. We’ve also met our fair share of challenges from world events outside our control, but perhaps none has been greater than the COVID-19 pandemic, when the great privilege of exploring the world first-hand was suspended with no clear date of return. Far from how we’d hoped to celebrate Goway’s 50th anniversary! Yet, here we are, now looking forward to the next 50 years. It seems such a small thing amid all the havoc, pain, and uncertainty the pandemic has caused, but this great freeze in travel has reinforced for me how fortunate we are each time we get to experience another part of the world and connect with those who call it home. For Globetrotters, who’ve chosen a life of travel, that connection across borders is crucial. Personally speaking, I can’t wait to get back out there and reconnect with old friends and new faces. To that end, I’m delighted to present the Best of Goway Travel, showcasing over 450 of our favourite trips and travel ideas. (This selection only scratches the surface of the more than 2,000 unique itineraries that you can find at goway.com.) Each has been selected and curated by our Destination Specialists based on their extensive knowledge and personal insights. For Goway, it’s the first brochure of its kind, showcasing all six of our destination regions we specialize in. When you’re ready for your next adventure, Goway can craft the perfect trip that’s made just for you.

The Cambridge Dictionary defines “globetrotter” as "someone who travels often to a lot of different countries." Technically, this might be correct. Our Destination Specialists and many of our Goway travellers certainly like variety in their travels. But with all respect to Cambridge, we like to think being a globetrotter is about the way we travel, not just the quantity or frequency. So, we’ve come up with our own definition:

Globetrotter: (noun) A person who has chosen a lifetime of travel.

Whether life grants you the privilege of travel every year, or every 10 years, whether you long to see every continent, or explore the many facets of just one in detail, if you’ve chosen a life of travel, one that unveils the world in all its possibilities, you’re a globetrotter. And within these pages, you’ll find what it means to be a Goway globetrotter.

What Is a Globetrotter?


WE'RE GOWAY Offering tailor-made trips since 1970, Goway is more than a travel company. We are a community of Globetrotters, defined by our Destination Specialists, our passionate support teams, valued agent partners and industry colleagues, and of course, our travellers! Celebrating over 50 years of incredible journeys, we’ve seen the valuable role tourism plays in changing lives and communities. Goway is proud to support organizations such as Children’s Wish, WWF, Project Rhino, Tourism Cares, Doctors Without Borders, and to be a member of USTOA.

Goway's Destination Specialists are Your travel experts Unique to Goway are our Destination Specialists, teams of professionals who’ve either lived or travelled extensively in the region they sell. So, when you talk to your Goway Destination Specialist, you’re talking to a reliable expert who knows what makes a great romantic getaway, solo adventure, family trip, or small group tour in your destination specifically. Each Destination Specialist is a globetrotter who’s experienced that moment that made them choose a lifetime of travel. Whether it was an unforgettable sight, flavour, or interaction, or just dreaming about exciting destinations as a kid, travel is an inseparable part of their identity. They know first-hand the world that defining moment can open, and they’re passionate about sharing that with other globetrotters. They know how to seek out the kinds of experiences that separate a globetrotting journey from a simple vacation. It’s a passion we all share, making Goway a family of globetrotters, rather than just another website that sells travel. When you talk to a Destination Specialist, you’re talking with someone who knows first-hand the kind of travel you’re craving. They can adjust a popular itinerary to suit your specific interests, or create something just for you. Destinations Specialists are at the heart of all we do at Goway, and you can count on one to create an unforgettable journey every time.

Don’t take our word for it, check out what our clients and travel professionals are saying on TrustPilot. AWESOME EXPERIENCE Awesome experience, as always. Goway handled a trip for me and my family in the middle of COVID lockdowns, recommended pathways to ensure testing was completed in our hotel rooms prior to travel dates, got all of our paperwork done, and ensured transport and guides were ready to go. This is my second trip with Goway and I couldn't be happier. Leo Liu & Goway are my go-to travel advisors for vacations!

AUSTRALIA, NEW ZEALAND & THE SOUTH PACIFIC Australia, New Zealand, and the Idyllic Islands of the South Pacific are another frontier. It would be easy to spend your whole vacation enjoying the highlights of lively, cosmopolitan cities like Sydney, Melbourne or Auckland, but getting out of town lets you appreciate the sheer diversity and beauty of these lands. Nothing can compare to a sunrise camel ride around Uluru, or cruising on pristine Milford Sound. South Pacific islands like the Cook Islands, Fiji, Samoa and The Islands of Tahiti take our ideas of paradise to another level, while bold travellers can visit Papua New Guinea for a Sepik River cruise.

GOWAY GLOBETROTTER

We fell in love with New Zealand! Alice, our agent, was always helpful and quick to respond. We began with a few ideas, and gave our wish list to Alice who put together an amazing self-drive tour through both islands over three weeks! Those were the BEST three weeks of my life.

Africa & the Middle East

Africa is the world’s second largest continent and offers everything the traveller could want. While there’s no doubt that the most popu­lar Africa vacation is a safari, especially for first timers, travellers will find that they can return again and again and always find a new experi­ence. Surfing off the coast of Morocco, marvelling at the pyramids of Giza, cruising the Nile, wine tasting in South Africa or lounging on the beaches of Zanzibar are just a few of the things you can do if you ever tire of chasing the Big Five (and that’s a big if!). Safaris range from mod­erate, comfortable camps to luxury private game lodges depending on the experience you want. Nothing is off limits on a Goway Africa vaca­tion.

GOWAY GLOBETROTTER

Goway's local tour leader in Morocco did a fantastic job, from arrival to departure. Our driver Hicham was fantastic. He toured us around most of the country, over the Atlas Mountains, to the Sahara and to the Atlantic. He connected us to the best local guides and we had many fascinating conversations.

South Africa is bursting with life, adventure, history, wildlife, and the best food in the world. Okay, I’m biased. Raised in Fish Hoek, I spent half of my life living in Cape Town. But South Africa also has gorgeous wine towns, amazing mountains, incredible safaris, scenic drives, and so much more.

POLAR VOYAGES

The Polar regions of the planet are some of the least explored on Earth and while admittedly austere, they are also beautiful. Nothing can compare to the lure of the Northern Lights or trying to sleep under the midnight sun. If you’re very lucky, you may even spot a polar bear. At the other end of the globe, across the perilous Drake Passage you will find Antarctica, the seventh continent and one of the last great frontiers. The world’s driest, coldest continent is still very much alive with penguins, walruses, seals, and birds. Antarctic cruises with Goway will leave you with an experience you will never forget.

We had a wonderful cruise through the Drake Passage to the South Shetland Islands. It was a birdwatchers paradise seeing all the sea birds we could never have seen any other way. The Wandering Albatross was very special. Then we saw colonies of Chinstrap and Gentoo penguins which was spectacular.
