Our tours are designed for people who want a real travel experience, not just a holiday. From our first escorted Adventure of a Lifetime 22 years ago – The Legendary Trans-Siberian – we have expanded our portfolio to include tours to almost every corner of the globe. We now travel to more than 60 countries, including the likes of North Korea and Tibet.
From the very beginning we believed that one of the most important components of travel is interaction with the locals. To this end, on our tours we go out of our way to meet genuine local people – to discover how they live and what makes them tick. A wonderful result of this is that many of our travellers have established firm and lasting friendships with people we have introduced them to in remote parts of the world.
We pride ourselves on our unique, handcrafted journeys. An extraordinary amount of research and experience has gone into each of our tours. We never launch a new tour without first making a thorough reconnaissance of the entire route. Nothing is left to chance. We use small independent ground operators in all the countries we visit and they share our commitment to providing our guests with the best possible ‘close-up’ travel experience.
Our tours are virtually all-inclusive. That means: return economy-class flights, twin-share hotel accommodation (four-berth on trains, with two-berth optional upgrades available), group transfers, ground transportation, most meals, sightseeing and entrance fees, professional tour guides, experienced tour leaders, and visas. We even pay all tips and gratuities.
All of our tours are graded to help you decide whether they’re right for you. The grading is as follows:
Easy: Requires a basic level of fitness, but is easy-paced
Moderate: Involves more walking or tiring journeys, but is within the capability of anyone leading a normal active life.
Active: Involves considerable walking and long travel days. Tours going to altitudes above 3000m are included in this grading.
