Dear UW Alumni and Friends,

The people, history, art, architecture, food, wine and culture come to life on AHI's comprehensive and meticulously researched and planned programs. Each trip is designed to delight the mind and the senses as you discover the must-see icons and experience behind-the-scenes connections not available to the individual traveler. It's as if you are visiting a local family who is intent on providing you with the very best experiences their destination offers.

Local experts and knowledgeable guides will bring the destination to life. A highly experienced AHI Travel Director will attend to every detail. And, best of all, you will travel in a small group amid the camaraderie of other UW curious travelers.

AHI's expertly planned itineraries balance the benefits of group travel, allowing you to fully experience the destination on included excursions, with leisure time to pursue your interests. Many of their programs include Personalize Your Journey opportunities that allow you to customize your experience with included excursions, plus a selection of elective activities and extensions that allow you to follow your passions.

For over 60 years, AHI Travel has been a leader in the creation and operation of exclusive and unique travel programs specifically designed for sophisticated affinity travelers from world-class educational institutions. Their travel programs reflect the high educational and cultural standards of universities nationwide.

I invite you to travel with UW and AHI and discover the world and all its wonders - often times in ways not open to the individual traveler. With the many tour inclusions, you will not find a better travel value. Join us on one of these journeys and discover for yourself the special care and exceptional service that are the hallmark of AHI/UW travel programs. Don't miss this chance to write a new chapter in the great book of life!
