Collette – The World’s Oldest Guided Travel Company, Since 1918
Travel is Who We Are, and What We Do
Every day, we set about enhancing our travelers’ lives through travel. Since 1918, that passion and drive to show you the world has led a small New England bus touring company with a handful of tours to grow into a worldwide endeavor, with our headquarters in Rhode Island, and offices in Australia and Canada.
Collette has over 170 different tours taking travelers to all seven continents. We believe a guided tour is the best way to see the world – must-see sights, cultural experiences, culinary highlights, accommodations, transportation – all this, and more, is built into a perfectly crafted itinerary.
We’ll handle the details. You enjoy your journey.

Since 1918, Collette has earned a global reputation as a travel company that offers extraordinary experiences, unsurpassed guest service and a wide appeal. Collette’s diverse travel collection features comprehensive land tours, river cruises, rail journeys, small group tours, city stays and more.

Collette’s Travel Protection Plan offers travelers a full refund for the price of the tour, right up to the day prior to departure. To protect our valued travel agency partners, Collette enforces a strict No Discounting Policy that precludes all travel agents, agencies and consortia from advertising a discounted savings off the published tour price. This measure proactively ensures a level playing field for all agent partners, including the traditional, local, brick and mortar agencies that travelers so depend
upon. With more than 170 tours spanning all seven continents, your clients only have to worry about where to go next. There are many ways to experience the world. Among Collette’s worldwide collection of tours, we offer a variety of guided travel choices.
