Overseas Adventure Travel (O.A.T.) In 1958, a retired California high school principal named Ethel Andrus founded a travel company to serve the members of the new organization she had just formed, the American Association of Retired Persons, or AARP. This company, Grand Circle Travel, grew to become the Grand Circle Corporation, the leading provider of international travel and discovery for Americans over 50. Overseas Adventure Travel became a member of the Grand Circle family in 1993, but our own history predates that…
Overseas Adventure Travel (O.A.T.) was founded in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1978 by a 28-year old high school teacher named Judi Wineland. Her inspiration came after a trip to Africa, where she identified a need for a more authentic, adventurous, and affordable safari experience than the typical ones available at the time. She targeted unspoiled Tanzania as the first destination for her fledgling company, and in so doing, became the first US tour operator to offer tented safaris there. From this beginning O.A.T. began offering custom small group tours to exotic destinations around the world, with O.A.T.-designed and operated trips to East Africa, Nepal, Turkey, and Peru.
