Please let us know which trips you are potentially interested in and available for. 

This is just an expression of interest,
NOT a commitment to join the trip. It puts you on the priority list when booking officially opens, and you also get to have some input during the planning process concerning your preferences. Some trips sell out, so you want your name to be in there!

Tours en l'air has been offering meticulously designed and planned ballet-themed vacations in partnership with CWT Victor Travel since 2010. We have now completed more than 25 of these vacations, in both
North America and Europe.
Typically our groups, which vary in size from 10 to

 30 participants, are constituted of about half 
returning clients (many of whom have gone on

 several Tours en l'air trips) and half new clients.

Thank you so much for a wonderful trip to Germany and ALL that that included, not just ballet. You sure know how to fill one’s eyes, ears and mind with sights, sounds, history and true beauty. It was and will remain a most memorable trip. I do sincerely hope there will be
another in our future.”
