Our President Jacky Keith had the exciting privilege of witnessing the return of the Mayflower after an extensive restoration period:

After a lengthy absence resulting in a complete refit, the Mayflower returned to Plymouth, MA last week. We joined hundreds of small boats in Cape Cod Bay to welcome her as she came into view looking spectacular under full sail!

In 1957 I had recently emigrated to America, and watched with great pride as the Mayflower sailed into Plymouth from England. It was hard to believe this new Mayflower followed the same route as the original ship in 1620.

Christine at Esplanade Travel planned our recent trip which found us traveling to four very different and fascinating regions in Chile. The trip was absolutely beautiful, memorable and so suited to our specific interests! We have had the pleasure of working multiple times with travel consultants at Esplanade Travel and they continue to amaze us with the itineraries they develop and their close working contacts in other countries that always result in worry-free travel for us. We tend to stay in multiple areas with multiple connections and with the expertise in planning at Esplanade all of our reservations, contacts, pick-ups and drop-offs occur seamlessly. Our travels started in Santiago before heading south to the Lakes District, further south to Torres del Paine in Patagonia, then west to Easter Island. All of the lodges we stayed in were so comfortable with gorgeous views, the guides were super knowledgeable about the cultural and natural history of every location we visited, and the food was fantastic! On Easter Island our native guide, Sabrina, was able to provide us with her intimate knowledge, passed down to her from her ancestors, of the history and culture of the Rapa Nui people. I highly recommend Esplanade Travel to everyone, and I guarantee we will be contacting them to assist us with our next great adventure!
