About Us

Welcome to our family-run business. 
Welcome to vacations where you feel like part of the family.


Back in 1980, Martin and Carlota opened a tiny office in downtown Los Angeles, California, selling air tickets.


As sales increased, Martin and Carlota branched out, expanding their operations into escorted tours and growing into a global travel company known as Ritz Tours.


One by one, offices opened in different continents worldwide. One by one, the company launched escorted tours to the world’s most exciting destinations.

Over 40 years later, Martin and Carlota still own Ritz Tours, running the company as a family business with teams in the US, UK and Asia.
