Ethel Andrus, a retired teacher and principal, had a vision of helping Americans lead more vital, challenging, and politically active lives. Pursuing this dream, she founded the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP)—and Grand Circle Travel—in 1958.
Our Vision, Mission, and Values
Our culture started from the minute we decided to acquire Grand Circle in 1985, and it has been shaped by countless events and people over our history. Parts of our culture were very well considered, such as when we crafted a Vision and a Mission and identified the Values we believed in.
Grand Circle is committed to lessening our impact on the planet, while encouraging our suppliers and customers to do the same.
