HMB would like to congratulate Classic Journeys LLC ("Classic Journeys"), a leading luxury cultural walking tour company, on a successful sale to Lindblad Expeditions Holdings, Inc. (“Lindblad”), a global provider of expedition cruises and adventure travel experiences.
Since 1995, Classic Journeys has been providing best in class luxury walking tours focusing on engaging experiences that immerse guests into the history and culture of the places they are exploring and the people who live there. Classic Journeys' tours are highlighted by expert and well-connected local guides who live in the regions being explored, luxury boutique accommodations and handcrafted itineraries curated through years of local connections and experience.
Lindblad will leverage its experience and resources to accelerate the growth of Classic Journeys and capitalize on the growing demand for authentic and immersive adventure travel and wellness around the world.
Edward and Susie Piegza, of Classic Journeys, said of the acquisition, "Lindblad is all about exploration as a means to elevate the soul to care about the planet and its people. It is known for pioneering exploration across the globe whether it be on small ships, on foot, or on bicycles and their renowned teams of expert naturalists and guides. Equally, Classic Journeys is all about immersing our guests into the history and culture of the people and places we are exploring, in small groups led by our expert local guides. We believe in building cross-cultural connections, on foot and at eye level, one step and one person at a time…"
