Collette

Why do people travel?

What drives them to venture far from home and see sights they have never seen?
There are paintings and pictures and high definition videos of every beautiful place on the
planet, so why the urge to visit them?  We’ve spent the last 100 years bringing people all over the world, and along the way we’ve learned that travel isn't about the places we go.
It's about them and their reasons for going. And everyone has different reasons. They can be big —a promise to a loved one, fulfilling a lifetime goal. But they can also be small— the blue water in Capri sure is pretty. Though the reasons are all different, they are all simply something that is missing. That’s why
completing a trip is, in a sense, completing ourselves. It's why we travel. 

100 years is a long time. It certainly is in our business. Where we travel has changed. How we travel has changed. But one thing really hasn’t changed: why we travel.
Since 1918 Collette has created tours that have taken travelers around the country and the world.
And while we have come a long way—literally and figuratively—from simple bus tours down the
East Coast to luxurious, all-inclusive explorations of some of the world’s most exotic locations,
there has been a unifying thread connecting every trip we’ve led over the last century.
And that thread is the endless unique reasons that inspire each of us to travel. A story we want to
tell. A site we want to see. An adventure we hope to experience.
They say travel makes the world smaller, but having done this for a hundred years now, we have
come to understand that travel really makes us all bigger.
And a hundred years later, it’s still why we travel.
