For more than 30 years, Overseas Adventure Travel has enticed energetic, experienced travelers to choose the roads less traveled. OAT sets itself apart with a small-scale travel philosophy and a strong emphasis on personal cultural encounters. Trips include small ship voyages, wildlife safaris, rainforest trips, and other land adventures across a diverse mix of destinations.
From Morocco, Tunisia, and Egypt to Burma, India, Vietnam, and even remote locales like Galápagos, OAT travelers are able to access and experience exciting destinations off the beaten path. Trip features include small travel groups (never more than 10-16 travelers), day-to-day cultural engagement, soft adventure activities, and the use of local transportation—all facilitated and supported by Overseas Adventure Travel's expert trip leadership. For eight years, OAT has been named one of the world's top 15 tour operators and safari outfitters by readers of Travel + Leisure magazine—and was rated the #2 best value tour operator in the world in 2007.
The Grand Circle Foundation's A Day in the Life program is favorite feature of most OAT trips. It offers travelers the chance to experience life as a local, from browsing local markets to meetings with community leaders. The Foundation is committed to giving back to the communities that welcome and inspire our OAT travelers. A portion of the proceeds of every OAT trip is donated to the Grand Circle Foundation.
