Welcome to Beyond Doorways Travel
Beyond Doorways Travel creates memorable travel experiences for friends, families and small groups. We are passionate about meaningful, uncommon, out-of-the-ordinary travel. Several years ago, we began to ask our friends and colleagues to share their travel stories with us. Since then, we've featured stories on the Camino de Santiago; micro-enterprise in East Africa; a Greek wedding in Venice; volunteering in Haiti; the waterways of Myanmar; an Indo-Fijian wedding and more.

An Intimate and Vibrant Italian Journey
To learn more or to BOOK this TRIP
For those who prefer to travel with a small group (no more than 10 travelers for a highly personal travel experience), who've visited Italy's major sights and wish to absorb more deeply the places and history of these delightful regions. Gather a group of friends, families or couples for a private tour, or join a group of like-minded travelers.
A New Look for 2015
It was time for a design update, and we're excited to launch our website's new look. We believe the new design reflects the personality and passion of Beyond Doorways Travel. Tell us what you think.
We'll alert you about new trip offerings and let you know when the latest feature stories are posted on the site.

An elderly Buddhist monk, shrouded in crimson robes and wreathed by a trio of novices, chants a blessing that resounds across the water. Nothing is permanent in the floating villages of Tonle Sap Lake; everything ebbs and flows with the life-bringing waters, including this pint-sized floating temple. The chanting complete, passengers on the Aqua Mekong
river cruiser board their modern skiffs and make for the setting sun.
