We get it – travel’s a big decision. It’s not every day you fly across the world to wander the souks of Marrakech or enjoy a dreamy Angkor sunrise. But for us, it’s been our everyday for the past three decades (whew, we’re old). Let’s just say we know what travelers really want: a balance of inclusions and free time, a mix of classic highlights and local secrets you won’t find on your own. And of course, an authentic real life experience.

We think travel has a special power to connect people. To make friends of strangers, lovers of friends, to bring cultures together. To make this big world feel a little smaller. If you have a love of travel, a curiosity about the world and a respect for local communities, cultures and the environment (basically, all the important stuff). Just a hunch, but we think you’re going to like us.

gender equality

Leaders in Gender Equality

Our goal is to double the number of female leaders by 2020. While this may not be difficult in many countries, in traditional societies such as India, recruiting women is a much greater challenge. Last year we employed three female leaders in India, today there are 11 (out of 67).
