We don't run tours just for the sake of it. We run tours to places that you either can't get to by yourself or are dangerous or very difficult to go to alone. And even within our specific countries, we don't just stick to the main tourist routes and are constantly endeavouring to gain access to new and exciting places or special events.
Our countries of expertise are:
We take guiding very seriously. But also not too seriously! It's not a matter of simply memorising a bunch of facts, or just knowing the itinerary. We treat guiding as a 24/7 job that involves everything from making sure everyone gets the breakfast they ordered, to showing our guests all the most interesting spots in each place, to being a social lubricant for any situation no matter how tame or how lively.
Our guides aren't just guides. They also are at the very least involved in, but often completely responsible for organising the tours they are on. So the person that answers your inquiry also organises visas, goes to meetings with officials, books hotels and guides tours.
Most importantly, you won't just be impressed with our guides' knowledge and passion, you'll also want them as friends.
There are people out there, maybe you're one of them, who thinks that travelling with a group might be limiting, or could just be annoying. Maybe you've been on a group tour before and it was a bit of a pain, or maybe you just love travelling independently. Well, you're not alone! One of the great things about the types of people that come on our tours to these sorts of destinations is that we all have at least this one thing in common. We're all independent, discerning travellers, and as it turns out, travelling with each other can actually be really fun. As well as being enjoyable, we find that you can often get more out of it too.
- We've taken guests from ages 2 up to 75.
- We've had guests from over 60 countries.
- We've had the privilege of guiding pilots, train drivers, nurses, doctors, teachers, fellow tour guides, retirees, students, film directors, musicans and everyone between.
We are open to anyone. There are no age limits or particular types of travellers who are more or less welcome. From a retiree who's found travel later in life, to a travel blogger aiming to visit every country, to a family just wanting to show their kids a less common type of holiday, our tours work for anyone.
