UW Alumni Tours

Tour Operators

UW Alumni Tours works with the most professional and highly-experienced tour operators, selected based on their destination expertise, reputation and top quality programming. By working with a variety of operators, we can offer a broad spectrum of tours for different travel tastes and expectations. Most importantly, all operators are dedicated to educational travel in the pursuit of life-long learning.

Feel free to reach out to a tour operator directly for questions about a trip or your reservation – just be sure to let them know you’re with the UW. They can help with questions ranging from the itinerary and airline arrangements, to visa questions and destination-specific travel tips.


AHI Travel


UW alumni have been traveling with AHI Travel since the 1970s. Offering deluxe international educational tours, AHI is best known for its European river cruises, Crystal Cruise Line itineraries, other small-ship cruises, and its Alumni Campus Abroad series. These specific tours allow for an intimate experience in small towns and remote destinations complete with lectures and local exchanges. In addition, we are excited that on a few select tours each year, AHI is able to offer spots that do not require the single supplement.
