AuthentiCity Travel offers two week immersive travel programs that give a unique opportunity to appreciate cities, people, and cultures as the locals do. Whether it’s one of our set tour departures or a custom tour AuthentiCity has created a truly authentic travel experience that is much richer than a traditional tour. In addition to a plethora of time on your own AuthentiCity offers language lessons, painting workshops, and activities such as hiking, cooking, and biking. As well as lectures and visits to museums we offer exclusive access to places and people not found in guidebooks. Our programs in Athens, Beijing, Cairo and Siena provide a life changing experience you can’t afford to miss.
AuthentiCity’s “Authentic Athens” experience will show you glorious antiquities, dip into island life, and discover the cultural threads that tie today’s Greek society to the ancient world. You will have opportunity to sip rich coffee at corner cafés, browse antiques in hidden shops, and explore the maze-like markets.
Beijing offers so much from hutongs to Great Walls, natural beauty to glittering metropolises. We’ll connect you with locals who are eager to talk with you about current events and Chinese language teachers to learn the language so you can shop at a local market, travel on the subway, or share a moment with a curious school child.
There is so much more to Cairo than meets the eye. Most of us automatically think of pyramids and desert, but this city is modern and vibrant and AuthentiCity offers an in depth experience not to be exceeded by the usual tour. Each day features behind-the-scenes visits and meaningful contact with local people in markets, cafes, work places, schools and more. The revolution which began on January 25th, 2011, is one more reason to travel to Egypt NOW, to witness the birth of a new democracy.
And last, but not least, Siena - It doesn’t get much better than two weeks in Tuscany. Rolling hills covered in olive trees, the taste of Chianti and pecorino cheese, the soft splash of a fountain in an ancient piazza, and the intimate chatter of friends whose families have been neighbors for centuries, what more can be said?! Just that this experience will not only leave you with a feeling of what it means to be Italian, but with the feeling as if you have lived in Italy your entire life.
When booked by August 31, 2011 AuthentiCity Travel is offering a $250 per person “Summer Solstice” reduction on all tours to Athens, Beijing, Cairo & Siena.
