The theme is new year, new savings with a lot of tour companies this January. Here’s an alphabetical-order roundup of what I’ve found (I’ll add as I find more):

TourScoop Takeaway

If you’ve been eyeing a tour for this year, this is a great time to book it at what is likely to be one of the best prices of the year. Bonus for river and expedition cruises: Booking early offers you the most stateroom options, so you’re more likely to find something that fits your preferences and budget.
