Why Travel with WAC?
The World Affairs Council has organized many international group trips in the past and believes strongly that seeing and experiencing a country and culture firsthand is vital to developing a global perspective. Our trips are designed to provide travelers with a five-star experience. Beginning with the finest accommodations, we take travelers to well-known restaurants and local markets where they can savor regional cuisine and connect with locals.
As a nonpartisan, nonprofit internationally-minded organization, the World Affairs Council is always conscientious and mindful of all manner of important international news and information. This knowledge informs our destinations and itineraries.
“It was an amazing trip, every aspect was well planned and executed. The tour guides were excellent, Maria with her knowledge of art and art history, and Niko with his PhD in history, both gave insight and significance to what we saw…The main reason I went to Greece was to learn about the history, culture, archaeology, and religions past and present, so that was met and more so. Thanks again for a well-managed tour!”

Engaging Travel Programs
Small group travel that explores destinations chosen for their geopolitical interest, offering in-depth insight and exclusive experiences.
We focus on organizing unforgettable journeys to one-of-a-kind destinations for small groups of 10 to 20 travelers. Travelers are guided from the beginning to the end of the experience to ensure safety, knowledge, cultural exchange and entertainment, giving them an opportunity to connect with their surroundings and with one another.

Our primary mission is to connect travelers politically and culturally with each region. We accomplish this through a combination of cultural exchange, high-level meetings with heads of state, government building tours, private viewings, special dinners and exploration of historical sites guided by experts.
