For a year and a half, we’ve all been staying home, doing our part to reduce the spread. Fortunately, COVID vaccines are now in wide distribution, especially in Canada and the United States, and the world has begun to reopen. For those vaccinated, risks are dramatically reduced and vacation travel is possible once again.
So, for many of us, this raises the question: where to first?
TravelMaven’s suggestion is New York City! In fact, we have 3 departures in October, and there are still a few spots available on these Very Small Group Walking Tours. Maybe you should check ‘em out, and make NYC your next adventure!

We’ve recently become aware that people outside Canada have discovered TravelMaven and may wish to travel with us. That’s great! If that’s you, please note our prices are in Canadian dollars, but we now include a US dollar estimate based on $1.00CDN = $0.80US.
We love to spend a whole week in our Great Cities. Rather than rushing past Instagram sites, we enjoy slowing down and savouring these amazing archives of history and harbingers of emerging trends.
We believe that very small groups of 6-12 travellers offer the "sweet spot” for walking tours of Great Cities: big enough to have others to share experiences, yet small enough to get personal attention and enjoy flexible plans.
We believe the best way to see Great Cities is on foot. That's why we typically leave our hotel about 9 o'clock with walking shoes and daypacks, ready to explore the streets and fully immerse ourselves in that moment and place.
As soon as you make a $250 deposit, you are guaranteed the lowest Land Package price. If the price goes up after we receive your deposit, you keep the lower price. If the price goes down, you get the new lower price. When you combine this with fully refundable deposits, that’s a win/win for every TravelMaven traveller!
