Whether you’re after culture, adventure, or just want to kick back and relax, our outstanding local guides get you to the heart of your destination and deliver truly authentic experiences.

From grand palaces to historic temples, hot desert plains to snowy mountain peaks, cosmopolitan high rise to safaris at sunrise; we bring you the finest sights and adventures the world has to offer. Immerse yourself in a truly authentic local experience on one of our popular guided group tours which are a great choice for single travellers too, make a date with some of the world’s most colourful festivals, take an unforgettable family adventure, tailor make that dream holiday or discover the pulse of the world’s most exciting cities on our wide range of day trips.

With so many diverse destinations, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to touring. That’s why we have an excellent variety of trip types and styles to choose from too.

Our group tours offer popular itineraries ranging from short stays to two-week plus long adventures. Itineraries focused on one destination cover its main sights in depth, whereas our multi-country tours showcase the highlights across a certain region. We balance guided sightseeing with plenty of free time to explore, so you can make the most of each destination. And there are many unique experiences to be had, from spotting the Northern Lights in Iceland to exploring the surreal landscape of Cappadocia in Turkey or camping under the stars at Wadi Rum in Jordan. Travel is aboard modern, air-conditioned vehicles and we visit all the main sites with passionate, English speaking local guides. Nights are then spent in comfortable, 3-4 star accommodation, with a mix of hotels and unique properties used. Group sizes vary by destination but, with a range of ages and nationalities, our tours are designed to create a fun and social travel experience. Most tours have no single supplements, and for the few that do, we’ll do our best to match you up with another solo traveller.

Where We Travel:


Our Africa Safari Tours take in the highlights of Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, South Africa, Botswana, Madagascar and beyond. You could be discovering the spectacular Victoria Falls or trekking for Mountain Gorillas. Climbing the mighty Mount Kilimanjaro or spotting lions on the vast Serengeti plains. There’s plenty of different trip styles too. Choose between our lodge accommodated safaris, overland-style camping safaris and tailor-made holidays.

Central America

Mayan ruins, lush rainforests, beautiful beaches, charming colonial cities and exotic wildlife make Central America a most enticing destination. Our adventurous small group tours in Central America and Mexico are escorted by a tour leader and range from 8 to 22 days in duration. You’ll stay in simple accommodation and use private transportation which ensures you have a truly authentic travel experience, with plenty of interaction with the locals.


Europe really is a travel destination that has it all – epic history, artistic treasures, archaeological marvels, sophisticated culture and divine food. Whether it’s the romantic castles and grand churches of Eastern Europe or the Roman ruins and modern architecture of Western Europe, visiting this part of the world will leave you in utter awe. And from the dramatic fjords and glaciers of Scandinavia in the north, to the picture-perfect islands and scenic coastline of the Mediterranean in the south, it’s also a region of diverse and mesmerising landscapes. It’s little wonder that Europe remains the world’s most visited continent.

East Asia

Travel to the exotic lands of East Asia – China, Japan, South Korea and Tibet – on one of our award- winning holidays. With our experienced local English-speaking tour leaders, you’ll gain a true insight into these fascinating countries and immerse yourself in the local way of life. Our tours include some unique local experiences – spend a night in a traditional Hanok Village in South Korea, weave your way through the Hutongs of Beijing on a rickshaw, meet the Yau ethnic minority group along the Dragon’s Back Bone in China, join a sunrise class of Tai Chi at Beijing’s Temple of Heaven or try your hand at cooking tempura at a home-based cooking class in Japan.

India Subcontinent

Experience the colour and magic of a holiday to India, Sri Lanka, Nepal or Bhutan. From the fertile Himalayan foothills and the regal palaces of legendary Rajasthan, to the steps of the marble Taj Mahal and the palm-fringed beaches of Sri Lanka, or the fluttering prayer flags of Nepal and Bhutan, these countries will enchant even the most seasoned traveller.

Middle East and North Africa

From the legendary Pyramids of Giza and treasures of Tutankhamen to the spectacular rose city of Petra and the holy city of Jerusalem, experience the magic of a holiday to the Middle East and North Africa. Sail the Nile river in Egypt, on a luxury cruise, or traditional felucca, trek the rugged Atlas Mountains in Morocco, float in the Dead Sea shared by Jordan and Israel or dive in the Red Sea. Camel trek across the dunes of the Sahara or hot air balloon over ancient Luxor.

Travelling with us you’ll truly immerse in the local cultures – try tasty falafels from Cairo’s most famous sandwich maker, take a dip in Cleopatra’s spring, learn to cook traditional Jordanian food, camp out under the desert stars Wadi Rum, walk the Via Dolorosa to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, barter in the souks of Djemma el Fna and spend a night with local Berbers in the vast Sahara Desert.

South America

South America is a continent of tremendous contrast, with lush jungles and arid deserts, snow-capped peaks and sun-kissed beaches, glimmering salt flats and expansive glaciers. In addition to its stunning landscapes, South America also offers an abundance of wildlife, the fascinating local cultures of the indigenous peoples and lots of outdoor adventure too.

Trek the ancient Inca Trail and witness the sun rise over Machu Picchu at dawn, come face to face with the wildlife of the Amazon, marvel at the spectacular Iguazu Falls, celebrate carnival time in Rio, experience the hospitality of the native peoples of Lake Titicaca, enjoy a 4 wheel drive through the surreal landscape of the Uyuni salt lakes, go on a cruise of the wildlife-rich Galapagos Islands, or tango in Buenos Aires. It’s going to be hard deciding which to do first!

South-East Asia

Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Borneo are beautiful Southeast Asian nations, each with their own unique appeal. Diverse landscapes, stunning scenery, laid-back locals and delicious cuisine are common threads throughout, and our Southeast Asia tours and tailor-made holidays ensure that you’ll see the very best of each one. Whether its tending to the fields in Tra Que, taking a boat ride on Tonle Sap Lake or meeting local villagers, our tours of Southeast Asia offer countless authentic travel experiences. South East Asia is best known for its perfect beaches, tasty food and low prices and is a popular holiday destination for even the most discerning of travelers, which is why we have added this to our bucket list. If you haven’t already been, you’re missing out on a world of culture and adventure.

We’d love you to experience a country the way it really is, with people who live there and know it inside out. We know this makes the difference between a great holiday and a truly memorable one. Our carefully sought out English-speaking tour leaders and local guides are passionate about sharing their country with you and we believe that they are amongst the best in the business.

Ensuring our footprint is light and that the benefits of travelling reach the local communities you visit is paramount too. We’re proud to say that when travelling with us, the large majority of your holiday funds remain within the countries you visit, supporting local economies at a grass roots level with our sustainable travel policies.

We know that time is precious, that travel experiences can lift us out of the everyday and so above all, we’re here to give you a brilliant and unforgettable holiday.
