Journeys by Van Dyke
Explore the World with Confidence

At Journeys by Van Dyke, we believe that travel should be memorable from start to finish. We offer Canadians exclusive Journeys by land, sea, river & rail, that begin and end with our signature private car transport.

While on tour, professional Journey Managers make sure you never lift a finger, handling every detail, including gratuities. Our team selects and books delightful hotels, the right small ships to cruise on, as well as meals and private excursions that deliver an unparalleled experience. Journeys are crafted so you can take the time to savour each moment and immerse yourself in each destination, with the confidence that we will be there with you every step of the way.

You focus on taking in the sights, the tastes, making new friendships and bringing home incredible memories - we’ll handle the rest. We call that worry-free travel.

Professional Journey Managers

From the moment you are greeted by your Journey Manager at the airport, you can expect them to efficiently and discretely manage every detail. Trouble-shooter, entertainment director, and logistics specialist all in one, they are on the job 24/7.

You know them by name, and many of you have shared endless laughs alongside them. Our Journey Managers are the wonderful people that work around the clock to keep you enjoying your Journey. We are proud to say that we work with some of the best in the world.

Your only task? Exhale and enjoy.
