We are one of the oldest tour operators in North America. Founded in 1933 as Students' International Travel Association (SITA), we originally provided budget tours to exotic destinations for students. Over the years our destinations and focus have changed, and we currently promote deluxe tours to Africa, Asia, and the Orient.
We have a long history of operating eclipse tours, and can assure you of an unparalleled Eclipse experience. Our well-planned tour itineraries offer unique eclipse viewing combined with exposure to local culture and exotic destinations.
As an Active Member of the United States Tour Operators Association (USTOA), we are required to post $1 Million with USTOA to be used to reimburse, in accordance with the terms and conditions of the USTOA Consumer Protection Plan, the advance payments of SITA customers in the unlikely event of SITA bankruptcy or insolvency. Complete details of the USTOA Consumer Protection Plan may be obtained by either calling USTOA at 212-599-6599 or visiting their Web site at ustoa.com.
We also belong to ASTA TOP, the American Society of Travel Agents Tour Operator Program, open only to select operators meeting the highest standards of reliability and financial stability. In addition, a $5 Million TAPP Insurance Policy is in effect, the largest amount to be carried by a single tour operator.
