Why Travel With Osher?
You have many choices for travel companies; so why travel with Osher? First and foremost, our travel experiences are designed the Osher way – with our members in mind. Our reasonably priced itineraries are custom tailored to meet the needs of older travelers. Our tours have just the right blend of hands-on learning experiences and free time to explore on your own.

When you travel with Osher, you aren’t traveling alone. You are part of a highly social, welcoming community of travelers who share common interests. All tours always begin and end in Milwaukee with convenient departure locations. Traveling with Osher gives back to the institute since a portion of your tours fees is returned to the institute, keeping programs affordable for all our members. Finally, when you travel with us, we’ll make sure all the important details are covered so you can travel worry-free.

All tours are led by Osher Executive Director Kim Beck.
