Founded in 1991, TCS Expeditions was the first private jet expedition company to travel the world. In 2003, the same team formed Starquest Expeditions to further develop premium travel with an educational focus. The companies merged to become TCS and Starquest Expeditions when they were acquired by one of the world’s largest and most successful travel companies, TUI Travel Group. To date, we have operated over 200 expeditions to more than 150 destinations, making us the world leader in private jet travel.
We work with some of the world’s most distinguished universities, museums and cultural organizations—National Geographic, the Smithsonian Institution, Harvard Museum of Natural History and more. In fact, these organizations provide many of our experts and lecturers who accompany our trips and provide insights on the people and places we visit when we travel the world.
