Journey news: Tours for the adventurous, Broadway’s staging a comeback, tickets to Toronto

Not your typical journey guides

Tour operator Exodus Travels is partnering with the non-gain Royal Canadian Geographical Culture on a restricted-version collection of itineraries for 2022, referred to as “Exodus RCGS Quests.” The smaller-team visits will be hosted by noteworthy adventurers: A 15-working day Moroccan expedition, for case in point, will be led by Television set host and environmental journalist Aliya-Jasmine Sovani (a common face from MTV Canada and NBC News). The formidable alternatives also contain a 20-working day, multi-state tour of Southern Africa, guided by athlete/explorer Mario Rigby (renowned for his solo trek from Cape City to Cairo — a two-calendar year, 12,000-kilometre journey completed largely on foot).

Staging a comeback

As a indicator of New York City’s tourist revival, Broadway is established to resume several blockbuster musicals as of Sept. 14. Group-pleasers slated to return that working day consist of “Hamilton,” “Wicked,” “The Lion King” and “Chicago,” with tickets for all on sale now. Far more than 30 other Broadway displays are scheduled for previews or openings in advance of the year is out.

Trip the rails
