A Classic Tours Collection has organized successful Solar Eclipse Tours to worldwide destinations since 1980.
Each eclipse presents a new challenge, a new experience and an unforgettable journey for our travelers. A specialty of A Classic Tours Collection, our Solar Eclipse Tours amaze and delight travelers looking for an out-of-this-world experience. In fact, our tours to witness this natural phenomenon have become so popular that clients often book them as soon as they are announced (and before prices have even been published).
View the eclipse with world-renowned Astronomy expert Prof Jay Pasachoff Field Memorial Professor and Director of the Hopkins Observatory at Williams College. Pasachoff is also Chair of the International Astronomical Union's Working Group on Solar Eclipses. He is the co-author of "The Cosmos: Astronomy in the New Millennium," "Nearest Star: The Surprising Science of Our Sun and of The Solar Corona," and author of "Astronomy: From the Earth to the Universe". His "Peterson Field Guide to the Stars and Planets" is widely used by the general public as well as the amateur astronomy community. 2012 will be his 55th eclipse.
Tours are led by Mark Sood of A Classic Tours Collection. Mark has been organizing and leading tours to worldwide destinations for over 25 years. His first eclipse group tour was in 1980 and he is proud to be hosting his 12th Eclipse group tour in 2012. Mark's meticulous planning and expert handling of every detail have resulted in the highest level of success on all of the past 11 Solar Eclipse Tours. As a testament to the success, a large number of participants are repeat customers who anxiously await the next tour and even the next after that.
