Past Study Tours

Tour leaders Carol and Jerry Saber introduced CSA travelers to a Japan both traditional and modern. The iconic temples, shrines, gardens, shopping arcades, and artisan workshops exist serenely within dynamic, twenty-first century urban centers. This duality shaped our appreciation of the fashions and textiles, whether seen on the streets, in the finest boutiques or departments stores, or in artisan studios.

Travel took us from Kyoto to Tokyo, with side trips to Nara, Hakone, Nikko, and Kamakura.

Turkey at Topkapi Palace
With FEST Travel and our dynamic guide Serhan Gungor, CSA travelers experienced Turkey beyond the guidebooks. We traveled off the well-worn paths in the great city of Istanbul, in magnificent Mediterranean landscapes, to world-class archaeological sites, the fairytale landscapes of Cappadocia, notable museums and costume collections and the ateliers of Turkish designers and artisans while enjoying memorable meals of regional Turkish cuisine.
