Since 1970, Goway Travel has been committed to providing customized travel experiences for world travelers. Few things are better evidence of this commitment than being awarded the 2019 Trazees award for Favorite Tour Operator. Goway Travel heartily thanks the readers of Trazee Travel for this honor and for their confidence in Goway’s work in creating travel memories that’ll last a lifetime.
Goway puts world travelers at the forefront of the business and understands they expect the most dedicated services, the most awe-inspiring sights and the most authentic experiences when exploring the world. That’s why Goway crafted its own independently operated line of exclusive vacations to some of the world’s greatest destinations. These trips are known as Holidays of a Lifetime and take discerning travelers on unforgettable journeys through the likes of Australia and New Zealand, Southern Africa, China, India, Europe and South America.
Holidays of a Lifetime come with Goway’s “promise of something special” and are limited to a select number of passengers. They include visits to world-famous landmarks like the Sydney Opera House, Machu Picchu and the Great Wall of China, the finest accommodations, most meals, full luggage service, all tips, and professional tour directors hand-picked by Goway’s upper management.
To celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary in 2019, Goway is also operating exclusive Journeys of a Lifetime that go beyond Holidays of a Lifetime in terms of service and experiences. The inaugural Journey of a Lifetime, the Cape to Cairo, takes travelers on an epic 30-day adventure through the heart of Africa that combines several unforgettable experiences on one exclusive itinerary. The Natural Selection will then take travelers on a 32-day journey in the footsteps of legends in Machu Picchu and the Galapagos Islands.
The Cape to Cairo is a life-changing experience. It includes some of the best hotels and camps in Africa, including the Silo Hotel in Cape Town, Mena House in Cairo, and Cottar’s 1920’s Camp in Masai Mara. It also showcases the natural and historical wonders of Africa. See the majesty of Victoria Falls, watch the Great Migration in Masai Mara, come face-to-face with a mountain gorilla in the cloud forests of Rwanda, gaze upon the stone churches of Lalibela, and stroll alongside the pyramids in Cairo. Add this to world-class guides and services and a 15-day journey aboard the Pride of Africa, often considered the most luxurious train in the world, and you have a trip that recreates the romance and wonder of the Golden Age of Travel.
The Journeys of a Lifetime are further evidence of Goway’s total commitment to creating the most memorable and enriching travel experiences for world travelers.

The Opening Ceremony will take place on the River Seine, where athletes will drift along on a flotilla of boats as spectators wave them on from the quays and bridges throughout the city.
