Our Philosophy

We avoid many of the areas normally visited by tourists and, instead, immerse our guests in the rich culture of the countries we visit. We provide a balance between adventurous activities, conventional sightseeing and genuine contact with friendly locals.

We are constantly seeking to improve our trips in order to stay ahead of our competitors. To help us achieve this we have, over the years, developed a superb network of local contacts and guides in our many destinations. They are in constant contact, informing us of any changes that may affect our itineraries. Our maximum group size for most trips is 15 with one tour leader. All our tour leaders are experienced in wilderness first aid and many years of guiding guests around the world.


Who goes on our tours?

Travel is a basic human urge – a chance to discover something new about ourselves and others. Our trips appeal to those who want more from their holiday than merely soaking up the sun (although we do some of that too!).

Our trips attract a special kind of person - one who is open to new experiences and seeks those unique adventures not typically offered to the general public. While we include many exciting activities and sightseeing options on our tours, we also include some free time. We urge our guests to take full advantage of this and take the opportunity to mix with the people you have travelled so far to meet.

We don’t subscribe to the normal concept of escorted travel. Our trips are not for those who want to be herded around in large groups, seeing sights merely from the inside of buses. We treat each of our guests as an individual, appreciating that each has individual interests. Wherever possible we try to accommodate these in our trips in addition to the wonderful programs we provide.

Rather than cocoon you within the countries we visit, we will expose you to the true cultures and realities of travel within these marvellous and unique destinations. In general, we avoid areas dominated by mass tourism, instead seeking out hidden treasures rarely visited and experienced.

We hope you find our trips attractive, exciting and enticing. Why wait? Join us for the adventure of a lifetime!
