“The talks by the Consul General in Istanbul and the political history professor were highlights.”
About Club Travel
For more than 40 years...
The Commonwealth Club has been bringing together study leaders, guest speakers, and fascinating destinations to offer the best in global exploration. The Club's name opens doors worldwide, giving us access to thought leaders, special sites and behind-the-scenes activities. Our travelers take in the rich culture of the destination while meeting with its brightest minds - including journalists, politicians, curators, artists and academics.
In 2013, we are traveling to a number of off-the-beaten path destinations, including multiple departures to Cuba. We'll journey to far-flung places like Tibet and China's Yunnan, while also returning to some popular favorites such as Turkey, India, and Southern Africa. Perhaps you'll want to savor the food and wine on our Taste of Spain trip, or explore Eastern Europe's museums and historic towns. Maybe you'd like to take the opportunity to travel with the grandchildren of Eisenhower and Churchill on our Celtic Lands program, or learn about North Africa and the Mediterranean from Ambassador Ronald Neumann. If you don't want to go too far from home, join us for our Echoes of the Past: Remembering the Civil War trip along our eastern coast.
Throughout our programs you'll enjoy engaging educational programs, excellent study leaders, top accommodations, and thoughtful itineraries. You will also enjoy great company! Our travelers tell us the opportunity to meet and build friendships with other members from the Bay Area is the highlight. Our superb staff ensure the highest quality of service and take care of the details so you can sit back and experience the wonder of the places you are exploring.
Imagine your next great journey, whether marveling at the ancient site of the Potala Palace or taking in the dramatic scenery of Patagonia. I invite you to take advantage of this wonderful program and travel with us!
