River and Ocean Cruise Vacations Planned by Certified Cruising Experts

Are you yearning to just pack your bags, climb aboard, and sail off into a world-class sunset? Ready to leave all your worries back on shore? 

Then it’s time to call up the cruising experts at Kaleidoscope Travel & Cruise. 

We LOVE cruising (it’s in our name, after all!). Our team of experienced travel specialists will work with you to determine which cruise line best fits your needs, budget, and cruising personality.

If you’ve ever felt overwhelmed trying to choose your own cruise line, ship, cabin class, itinerary, excursions, dining plan — and the list goes on — leave the details to us. We even take care of your flights, pre- and post-stays, shore excursions and online check in.

All you have to do is pack your bags and get ready to cruise!

For A Journey That Takes You Farther, Deeper, and Leaves You Changed Forever

Adventure Travel and Tours Planned by Specialists

You’re not just looking for any old vacation.

You’re in search of a journey that takes you to the farthest reaches of the globe, off the beaten track, and into a land of wonder …

To vast plains where lions hide in the tall grass, or to jungles where monkeys swing deftly from tree limb to tree limb …

To spellbinding places that will test your strength, challenge your will, and leave you changed forever … 

In other words? You’re ready for an ADVENTURE. And we’d love to take you there.

Spellbinding Safaris

Spy graceful antelope, stealth cheetahs, and mighty buffalo from your very own 4-wheel Jeep, driven by a knowledgeable guide. After a day of tracking wildlife through otherworldly terrain, you can retire back at your safari lodge, where homemade meals and private plunge pools await you. An African safari is the ultimate blend of adventure and just-say-ah  relaxation.

 

Heart-Pumping Guided Excursions

From zip-lining through the jungles of Costa Rica to climbing the sacred steps of Machu Picchu, an adventure tour takes you right to the heart of the incredible natural and cultural wonders of South and Central America — and beyond. Home stays with the locals, quirky boutique hotels, or luxurious eco-lodges become your backdrop for adventure.

Intimate Small-Group Getaways

Forget crowded mega buses and walking tours that make you feel like a herd of cattle. Today’s top adventure tours are nimble and intimate. We’ll pair you with a reputable small-group tour company that’ll get you closer to the action than you ever thought possible. You can even embark on a themed tour tailored to your interests, or a river cruise with adventurous excursions.

 

Adventure in Comfort and Style — and Do It Safely

Adventure travel takes you to the far reaches of the earth — often to places that are a little less used to welcoming tourists.

That’s why it’s so important to work with adventure travel specialists, like the team at Kaleidoscope Travel, to help you design a custom journey that’s safe, comfortable, and precisely planned to your unique needs.

Get in touch with one of our adventure travel specialists today to start planning your epic travel adventure!

 

Family Vacations

The family that vacations together is the family that discovers together.

And laughs, hugs, gasps, and grows together, too.


Simply put — your family vacation is so much more than just a vacation.
It’s your chance to strengthen your bonds, cultivate curiosity, and turn precious moments into memories that you’ll all treasure forever.

Let the family travel specialists at Kaleidoscope Travel & Cruise design the perfect trip for your family today!

Designing Disney Dreams

Nothing beats a classic Disney vacation.

 

Whether it’s the thrill of meeting Mickey at the theme parks, sailing away on the ultra family-friendly Disney Cruise Line, or exploring the world with Adventures by Disney tours, your Disney vacation will leave the whole family smiling from mouse ear to mouse ear!

Relaxed All-Inclusive Resorts

Sun, fun, and a fabulous vacation coming right up!

 

We love sending clients to family-friendly all-inclusive resorts, where their worries just melt away.

 

When everything is taken care of for you, all you have to do is play together (and enjoy a whole lot of pampering too)!

WE PLAN HEADACHE-FREE ALL-INCLUSIVE VACATIONS

 

The All-Inclusive Experts

All-inclusive resorts have changed a lot over the years — and the experts at Kaleidoscope Travel have seen it all. Over the past two and a half decades, we’ve sent our clients to hundreds of all-inclusives … so you can trust that we know each resort better than any anonymous online reviewer! Plus, we’ve cultivated contacts at the top all-inclusives throughout the Caribbean and Mexico, which means you can expect a VIP experience when you book with Kaleidoscope Travel. Go ahead and take that big sigh of relief: Your vacation is now in expert, well-connected hands.

Meet Your Vacation Matchmaker

Every all-inclusive is different, with it’s own vibe, style, and price point. That’s good news — since every vacationer is different too! Whether you’re looking for low-key luxury in a laid-back paradise or nonstop fun with island party vibes, we’ll draw on our decades of experience to match you with the perfect all-inclusive resort for your needs, travel style, and budget. That’s why our planning process starts with either a complimentary phone call or in-person consultation at one of our Alberta offices — we want to get to know you and your unique travel dreams.

An All-Inclusive Planning Experience

The best thing about an all-inclusive resort vacation? Never having to lift a finger … except to load up your plate with more delicious (and unlimited!) fresh-baked pastries from the breakfast buffet ;) Extend that all-inclusive, zero-stress experience to the planning stages by working with the team at Kaleidoscope Travel. We’ll take care of booking and arranging all your travel needs, from flight and resort reservations to airport transfers. We’ll even help you find and book extra special area excursions, tailored to your interests — yes, an all-inclusive vacation CAN be completely customized!

Trust Your All-Inclusive Dreams to the All-Inclusive Specialists

Other agencies may claim that they can book you a memorable all-inclusive vacation … but we’ve got the experience, expertise, and certifications to PROVE we can.

The Kaleidoscope Travel & Cruise team is made up of travel specialists. Which means our all-inclusive resort experts live and breathe all things all-inclusive (and have visited many of the top all-inclusive’s themselves!).
