Your Private Adventure

Travel at your own pace on the dates you choose – individually, with family, or with friends.


You can see the world in the style you want to see it - rustic or luxury, the heart of town or middle of nowhere, a little walking or day-long treks.

Places To Go!

Our destinations cover the world of adventure in more than 30 countries on 6 continents. All are done in the style of Walking Connection Founder,  Jo Ann Taylor. 


Currently Accepting Clients For Custom Journeys in 2022, 23 & 24.

Walking Connection host and local resident guides

lead curated adventures.

True freedom is knowing that you have a team of adventure travel professionals covering the details so you can enjoy a big adventure.


Our small gatherings usually consist of 6 - 12 guests. They can be a collection of friends and family, random guests, or a combination of both that join us on selected departure dates. 

The details of your adventure come with over 3 decades of experience of getting them just right. Our plan is built using our own brand of "must-see" spots, but also knowing that each day offers new and sometimes exciting unique opportunities for us to explore together or on your own.

"Garry and I are so lucky that we got to go to Africa with JoAnn and Gene TWICE (Tanzania 2015 and Kenya 2006). If you haven't been to Africa, go...and go with them!"

“You have made this a super sojourn! It has been one of the highlights of my life. Every day in China was an enjoyable time.” ~ Rick K.

600 miles west of Ecuador, lie the Galapagos islands, an ecological wonder in so many ways.  The archipelago of volcanic islands is home to hundreds of endemic species that are found nowhere else in the world!
