British travel firm Political Tours is a tourism company that offers highbrow vacations to not-so-exotic locations. The agency specializes in tours to countries that have made international news recently, such as Georgia and Ethiopia.

Political Tours promises to let you see "current affairs at first hand," and as such, the company has group leaders who are experts on a certain region and its recent history. The tours are fairly expensive: an upcoming weeklong tour to Northern Ireland led by two BBC correspondents is priced at $4,400, not including airfare. If you want to experience the news as opposed to just watching it on TV, Political Tours seems to be your best bet. Ethiopia and Northern Ireland sound lovely, but I think I'll wait for the tour that examines the recent political developments in Cancun or the Bahamas.
