Scotland was my sixth trip with the Joyce Travel Program, and once again it was another wonderful trip full of exciting and interesting activities. The camaraderie developed in our small group helped in our activities and conversations.

The Joyce trip to Scotland was terrific! All the people on the trip were great, and we enjoyed “insider” access to a range of cultural events.

After hearing rave reviews about The Joyce’s travel program to Havana, I decided to join the trip myself. I was not disappointed. The Joyce team curated a wonderful program of Cuban dance companies, from local folk companies to emerging contemporary ones to the world renowned National Ballet of Cuba. All were extremely talented, delightful and inspiring in their own way. The itinerary also left plenty of time to explore the city, shop local art galleries, and indulge in some night life. The Joyce handled all logistics (charter flights, accommodations, local transportation and dining arrangements) with aplomb during the reopening of Cuba after the pandemic. I would highly recommend this trip for anyone who wants an insider view to the fantastic world of Cuba’s dance scene.

Traveling to Russia with the Joyce was (forgive the cliche), a dream come true and more. Seeing ballet on both the magnificent and storied Mariinsky and Bolshoi theaters would have been enough, but there was so much more history and culture — and cuisine. All was expertly guided by the fantastic team at The Joyce, complete with a Russian translator. The Grand Hotel Europa in St. Petersburg had become one of my top favorite hotels in the world. For my husband and me, the experience was an enriching intellectual experience as well as a whole lot of fun!

The Joyce Theater trip to Indochina was the perfect combination of urban chaos, rural beauty, wonderful waterways, heartbreaking history, peaceful people and spiritual awakening. Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia’s rich stories were conveyed superbly by Joyce Trustee Richard Ablon and an excellent collection of local guides. It was our third superlative Joyce trip. Heartfelt Thanks.

It was a trip that will stay with me for a lifetime. Traveling with The Joyce was especially wonderful as we were exposed to Cubans and Cuban dance in a way which otherwise would not have been possible.
