Solar Eclipse Tours to worldwide destinations since 1980.
Each eclipse presents a new challenge, a new experience and an unforgettable journey for our travelers. A specialty of A Classic Tours Collection, our Solar Eclipse Tours amaze and delight travelers looking for an out-of-this-world experience. Our tours enjoy loyal following because of our success ratio for viewing Eclipses and careful planning and attention to detail in crafting and operating such unique tours. Each venue is hand selected keeping in mind the weather conditions/ predictions by experts (Jay Anderson), Eclipse routes/maps by (Xavier Jubier), NASA bulletins to ensure maximum success.
With A Classic Tours Collection, you enjoy a worry-free travel experience, because we look after all the research, planning and logistics. On each tour, we find the perfect balance of high-quality accommodations, great eclipse viewing venue, sampling local cuisines and comfortable transport to travel and sight-see. We select expert local guides, best in the industry, and our local representative’s open doors to venues, sights and events that in many cases would be inaccessible to independent travelers. You will be traveling with fellow travelers who share the same enthusiasm, deep passion and respect of local cultures and Mother Nature.

Tours are led by Mark Sood of A Classic Tours Collection
Mark Madhukar Sood has been organizing and leading tours to worldwide destinations for over 30 years. His first eclipse group tour was in 1980 and he is proud to be hosting his 16th Eclipse group tour in 2017. Mark’s meticulous planning and expert handling of every detail have resulted in the highest level of success on all of the past 15 Solar Eclipse Tours. As a testament to the success, a large number of participants are repeat customers who anxiously await the next tour and even the next after that.
We were just reminded on the SEML that tomorrow is the 20th anniversary of our 1995 TSE in India. It was such a wonderful tour and always gives us great memories when we think about the places that we visited and the interesting hotels in which we stayed. We were fortunate to meet you then and to travel with you since then. We are very much looking forward to March 2016 in Indonesia and to traveling with you again.”
