Diverse range of themes - for a diverse range of travellers
If it's non-stop action you're after, why not try Cycling in France or Walking in Tuscany? If you'd rather eyeball native animals, check out one of our Wildlife or Marine trips. Or if you covet the life of a travel photographer, dip your toe in the water on a Photography trip.
With so many choices there's bound to be a tour that feels like it's been custom made for you. And as we're always at the drawing board when it comes to crafting new itineraries, our list of themes continues to grow. Watch this space for Running, Art History or maybe even Space trips down the track. Anything is possible!
A long way from the typical kid’s club holidays; these trips offer shared family experiences where you and your children get to discover new places, meet new cultures and try new things together, as a family. You will travel with other like-minded families and be lead by a local, English–speaking leader who will share their passion and knowledge of their country with you, making your holiday an unforgettable one. You don't need to be well travelled - just ready for adventure!
Serving up a delicious adventure every time, our Food trips are a grassroots, affordable way to travel through the world’s best food destinations. With options ranging from 8-14 day Real Food Adventures, 4-5 day Bite-size Breaks and 2-4 hour Urban Food Safaris, there will be a Food trip to suit every timeframe and appetite. Food itineraries have a strong focus on street food, authentic local specialties, home-cooking and urban food and drink culture, so the real flavour of a region can be savoured and experienced. But they’re more than just about cuisine – all our Food trips are filled with plenty of local interaction, cultural exploration and real life experiences.
From cruising through the Galapagos, Andaman Sea or Greek Islands to exploring Antarctica on an expedition ship, set sail on a boat-based journey through oceans, rivers and archipelagos.
Enjoy eating, sleeping and living onboard and disembark for day trips and side excursions. The size of your group will depend on the type of boat you're travelling on.
Catering for a range of interests and filled with fun, diversity and new experiences, Explorer trips let you discover the best the world has to offer. They allow you to journey through ancient worlds, dive into modern cities, marvel at cultural icons and try incredible cuisines. You’ll also meet local friends, relax in out-of-the-way places, explore national parks and be wowed by timeworn temples - all while discovering a myriad of cultures.
Explorer trips have an average group size of 12, travel on local transport where possible and are big on real life experiences.
Short Breaks are mini adventures in awesome places, or the ideal add-on to a longer adventure. With a duration of 2-5 days, they range from relaxing beach breaks, to excursions with a local guide or short-and-sweet group adventures.
With frequent guaranteed departures, group size will vary from single travellers to a maximum of 12. A stack of rewarding, real life experiences are also guaranteed!
Prepare to go a little wild on these animal-centric excursions. Whether it's on a safari, at a remote jungle lodge or cruising along a river, our Wildlife tours get you back to nature and up close to native wildlife.
With luck you'll come face to face with some of the world's most incredible creatures - which makes for some pretty awesome travel stories we can assure you!
Get ready to take in beautiful vistas, breathe in fresh air and walk through some incredible places. We offer an extensive range of both small group and self-guided walking itineraries all over the world - covering everything from one-day hikes through to itineraries where you'll walk every day.
Armed with route notes and maps, self-guided walks allow you to explore at your own pace and are perfect for those wanting more independence. Or, if you want to concentrate more on the scenery, join a small group and explore with new friends. All your accommodation will be pre-booked, and your main luggage will be transferred between properties. So all you have to do is strap on your daypack and enjoy the walk!
Feel the wind on your face as you experience the world from two wheels. Our Cycling adventures span the gamut of two-wheeled challenges: from a leisurely ride in the Loire Valley to cycling across the roof of the world in Tibet. Our Cycling adventures cover everything from one-day rides through to itineraries where you’ll be riding every day.
We operate small group adventures that are led by experienced cycling leaders and are usually accompanied by a support vehicle. In some regions we also offer self-guided itineraries. Whatever your level of fitness, we've got you covered - simply bring a love of cycling, a desire for cultural interaction and a sense of adventure.
Big adventures through immense landscapes. Get off the beaten track to experience the fascinating cultures and terrain of some of the world's most far-flung places. Travelling in purpose-built vehicles, you'll explore with a group of up to 24 travellers.
Accommodation will depend on the style of adventure you choose. Most meals are included if you're camping and, if there's a kitty for meals, you'll be required to pitch in and help cook. Like all epic adventures, the more you put in, the more you'll get out of it!
Been dreaming of the ultimate American road trip but without the hassles of organising it? Hit the open road and explore the USA on your own terms on a Self-Drive Adventure. We'll take care of all the details, from hiring a car to booking your accommodation. Stay in hotels and lodges, or set up camp in a spectacular locale - travelling in the States has never been easier or more enjoyable! And when camping, we'll supply all the equipment you need and show you how to use it.
Whether you're a couple of mates with a thirst for adventure or an entire family looking to explore, this is the perfect way to be your own tour guide and navigate the famous cities, sights and national parks of the USA.
Be immersed in local culture during a special event or festival. This is an opportunity to celebrate amazing moments alongside locals, whether it's dancing all night long through city streets or a moving ceremony at dawn, you'll experience it all firsthand.
