Our Values


Journeys by Jerry Van Dyke was founded on a commitment to providing personal service and quality in everything we do. All our journeys are personally researched, orchestrated, and operated; our guests experience them only after we are sure every hotel is inspected, every guide is interviewed, and every detail is pre-arranged. Your focus is on enjoying every moment of your journey. That’s the Jerry Van Dyke difference.


Relax, it’s included. True value is paying for everything up front and being able to indulge in a journey’s experience, not the details of paying as you go. Jerry Van Dyke started this company 35 years ago on the foundation of providing all-inclusive journeys to those who value quality and simply want to experience adventure and relaxation.

Quantity changes quality; it’s simply inevitable. That’s why we cater to small groups, ensuring that our guests are not merely satisfied—they’re delighted: just ask those who have travelled with us 5, 10, 30, or even 45 times.

Peace of Mind

Travelling should be exciting and relaxing, not harrowing and stressful. Our comprehensive pre-planning coupled with extensive local experience ensures a worry-free journey. Often, stress arises from the details, such as how to get to the airport or where to find an ATM. With home pick up and drop off, all you have to worry about is packing your bag and walking out your front door; for the other stressors that sometimes arise during travel, your knowledgeable journey manager will be there to make the necessary adjustments throughout your journey. Such details are ours to arrange and yours to enjoy.


Our reputation is built on treating our guests like family. We understand that each guest is unique, and we go the extra mile to make your experience the best it can be. Our own staff, including the journey managers who adventure with you throughout your journey, love what they do, are knowledgeable about our journeys, and are committed to ensuring your experience is as relaxing as it is invigorating.

As a family-owned business, we are also committed to working with other like-minded families wherever we travel. The local guides you encounter are our long-time partners—friends who will welcome you into their countries and towns and share their lives and traditions with you.
