About the World Affairs Council
The World Affairs Council of Philadelphia organizes all the Travel the World trips for the national association of Councils and has been doing so for 35 years. The Council began its extraordinary offering of educational tours with our landmark trip to the People's Republic of China in 1977, when we were among the first Westerners to visit China after the country was re-opened by Deng Xiaoping. Since then, the Council has offered an annual program of tours on every continent including such diverse locations as Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, and Kazakhstan; Peru and Cuba. Because of our reputation as one of the nation's leading forums, the Council has established connections around the globe that allow us to offer members access that they can't get when traveling alone or on other tours. Council leaders, who can draw on their expertise in the fields of diplomacy, journalism, or academia, accompany some tours as lecturers thereby providing added value to the experience. Philadelphia's Travel the World Program is a National Flagship Program of the World Affairs Councils system – an award for excellence. For more information on the program, please visit: www.wacphila.org/travel.
The Director of Concierge Tours will be responsible for three handcrafted itineraries created for corporations and other associations in and around the Greater Philadelphia area. These short programs are designed to stimulate intellectual curiosity and go more in-depth than a standard tour including substantive private briefings with leading public figures and scholars.
