This month’s issue of National Geographic Traveler hits newsstands today and, boy, is it a good one! Headlining this issue’s cover is our sixth annual “50 Tours of a Lifetime,” which is all about tours that get you “going deep and getting personal.” We highlight tours around the world–from India to Italy–that emphasize community and human interaction. Plus, we profile ten expert guides, the oft-overlooked factor when booking a tour. Check out the complete list of tours online, plus find a photo gallery as well as trip planning resources to help you choose the right program for you and your family.
Our May/June issue also takes you to Croatia where writer Paul Kvinta tries to track down his family history after discovering he and a lighthouse keeper share the same last name. Aaron Huey’s photographs bring to life the small towns along the Dalmatian Coast. Patrick Kelly traipses around Montreal “just for laughs” during its annual comedy festival, and a savvy wilderness guide takes writer David Roberts deep into Wyoming‘s Wind River Mountains to show him the secrets of the wilderness.
Our columnists hit it out of the park once again this issue. Daisann McLane gets “real” about giving into the temptations of travel’s sweet treats. Boyd Matson goes in search of orangutans in Borneo, one of two places where they still live in the wild. Editor Keith Bellows sits down “One on One” with urbanist Richard Florida to talk about why cities are key. The Insider, Christopher Elliott, advocates for school attendance policies that acknowledge travel as an educational tool, and Costas Christ tries to answer the question, “Is Vegas going green?”
Our Smart Traveler section is packed with tips and tricks to help you make the most of your travels. Former Intelligent Travel Editor Janelle Nanos plans a weekend getaway in San Francisco using social buying sites and online coupon deals. Spend 48-Hours in Monaco, discover where to stay in New Orleans, take your kids to Baltimore, and dine at one of Paris‘ baby bistros.
