What’s the difference
between an African elephant
and an Asian elephant?
...About 3000 miles!
HA! Good one! But seriously,
Alki Tours can show you the
REAL difference, up close.
Nose-to-trunk. And these
aren’t some lame trips to the zoo. We lead fellow
travelers to safaris in Africa–to witness these
majestic beasts in their natural habitat–and
arrange for them to ride elephants in exotic
destinations like India and Thailand.
We also gently “squeeze” our vendors with the
weight of a bull elephant. The result, besides cries
of “UNCLE!”, is that you get world-class journeys
crammed with so much value, that like an
elephant, you’ll never forget them.
So pick up your elephone and give us a call at
1-800-895-ALKI to book a tour that features these
Kings of the Jungle. Then get ready to pack your
trunk for adventure.
Alki Tours is a partner
of TAP, Travel Alliance Partners,
a privately-owned corporation, managed by 30 premier tour operators
across North America. Our network

prices. Let us help you check off

put off until tomorrow what can be
done today! Let Alki Tours help
you TAP into the destination of
your dreams.
Don’t care much for elephants? Well, we’ve
got tons of tours that we guarantee are 100%
elephant-free. But better check under the hotel
bed, just in case.
I don’t think i’m
gonna fit in the
overhead bin!
don’t worry.
alki tours will
find a way to
pack you all in!
You get a Jumbo-sized itinerary with every Alki Tours vacation!

Snow Train to
Treelighting Festival
A trip to the North Pole isn’t in the cards this Christmas.
But who needs negative temps and tons of travel, when
you can join us on the only daylight train to the legendary
Christmas town of Leavenworth to see the annual Lighting
Festival. The fun begins as you board the train, cozy into
your seat and enjoy a continental breakfast. The changing
scenery outside will compete for your attention onboard
the train as oom-pa-pah bands, carolers, magicians and
Santa perform through the aisles.
Upon arrival in Leavenworth, the fun continues in the
streets of this Bavarian mountain town, that’s dressed up
to look and feel, as The New York Times wrote, “a bit like
the interior of a snow globe.” We’ll take in the season as
we roam around this “perfect place to spark the holiday
spirit,” where horse-drawn carriages glide down the roads,
carolers stroll, and vendors sell delicious holiday fare.
Later, we’ll gather for the highlight of the day: In one truly
magical moment, the entire town will become illuminated
in a synchronized display that rivals the Rockefeller Center
Christmas tree (and is a whole lot more charming). After,
reboard the train where dinner, more entertainment,
hot chocolate and our fabulous staff awaits to make your
christmas wishes come true.

Yellowstone, the Grand Tetons &

show begins. Experience Yellowstone as it becomes an
enchanting land of frozen waterfalls, steaming fumerols
and wildlife.
Spend 3 memorable days touring the park’s highlights
by heated snow coach–imagine a tank on nordic skis: it’s
warm, with big viewing windows. Around every corner a
new surprise may await–herds of elk and bison lounging
on thermal hot spots, an otter tobogganing down the
banks of a river or coyotes mousing in the snow. End your
day with a dramatic finish as you watch (an almost private
showing) of the eruption of Old Faithful. Spend 1 night
in charming West Yellowstone, 2 nights at the new Old

Iceland–glacier walks
and Northern Lights
It’s been called the most spectacular show on earth, and
you can see it live in Iceland! We’re talking about the
northern lights–or aurora borealis–those mysterious lights
that dance across the night sky. And with its proximity to
the Arctic Circle, Iceland is one of the best places on earth
to witness this incredible phenomenon. Although sightings
can’t be guaranteed, this 6-day escape will provide opportunities for adventures like snowmobiling or super-jeep
safaris while chasing the lights. The country’s winter nights
are longer and darker than almost anywhere else in the
world—the perfect canvas for a mystical lights show.
You’ll get to explore Reykjavik, the northernmost capital in
the world, with Center Hotel Plaza as your home base. Despite the latitude, warm ocean currents make the climate
more similar to New England’s than Siberia’s. On a tour
of the Golden Circle, stop to marvel at roaring waterfalls,
bubbling hot springs, and towering geysers—all the result
of Iceland’s unique geothermal activity. You’ll also take
a dip in the Blue Lagoon, which owes its striking color to
volcanic minerals that turn the hot spring water milky blue.
Iceland’s astounding natural phenomena and pitch-black
sky will redefine your idea of a winter wonderland.
It’s included...
• Complimentary at-home pick
up in the greater Seattle area
• Round-trip airfare from
Seattle to Iceland

Sail right into the pages of a storybook along the legendary Danube, through pages gilded with history, and past
the turrets and towers of castles steeped in legend. You’ll
meander along the fabled “Blue Danube” to grand cities
like Vienna and Budapest where kings and queens once
waltzed, and to gingerbread towns that evoke tales of
Hansel and Gretel and the Brothers Grimm. If you listen

siren herself as you cruise past her infamous river cliff post!
During this 12-day journey, encounter the grand cities and
quaint villages along the celebrated Danube River. Explore
both sides of Hungary’s capital–traditional “Buda” and the
more cosmopolitan “Pest”–and from Fishermen’s Bastion,
see how the river divides this fascinating city. Experience
Vienna’s imperial architecture and gracious culture, and
tour riverside towns in Austria’s Wachau Valley. And in
Germany, explore a baroque cathedral and stroll cobbled
streets lined with half-timbered houses. Savor the tastes

famous melody.

in the United States. Wildflowers,

Yappy howlidays
on the Lake
$59 per person–dogs are free :)
Once again, it’s all paws on deck...
this time in December to enjoy an
exclusive, canine-friendly cruise
on Lake Washington as part of a
Northwest holiday tradition since
1949: the Argosy Cruises Christmas
Ship Festival. Every year, the Argosy
Christmas Ship sails to different
Puget Sound waterfront communities, over 45 in total. Choirs onboard sing 20-minute performances
to these communities, all broadcast
via a state-of-the-art speaker system. On shore, thousands of people
gather around roaring bonfires
anticipating the arrival of the
Christmas Ship and on the water, a
parade of boats, all lit up in festive
holiday lights, follow in its wake.
As part of this annual tradition,
you and your canine companion
will cruise aboard the Goodtime II
to enjoy the holiday season with
your hound. Sip on champagne
while your pooch is treated to hors
d’oeuvres. Get a photo of your
four-legged matey with Santa Paws
himself. And, howl along with the
carolers as they sing their festive
songs. This is a cruise only. You
and your pooch need to meet at
the Leschi Marina at 5pm and will
return at 7pm.
Take me! I’ve
been very good
this year.

Back by “popular” demand. Variety
calls Wicked “a cultural phenomenon,” and it continues to break box
office records across North America.
Winner of over 50 major awards,
including a Grammy and three Tony
Awards, Wicked is “Broadway’s
biggest blockbuster” (The New York
Times). Long before that girl from
Kansas arrives in Munchkinland,
two girls meet in the land of Oz.
One - born with emerald green skin
- is smart, fiery and misunderstood.
The other is beautiful, ambitious
and very popular. How these two
grow to become the Wicked Witch
of the West and Glinda the Good
makes for “the most complete–and
completely satisfying–musical in a
long time” (USA Today).
