Holidays: How to travel
We are specialists in arranging tailor-made holidays across the globe, holidays that enable you to see and experience a destination's culture, people, landscapes, food and music in close up.
We design journeys that bring your destination to life with expert guides and well planned itineraries, not to mention attention to detail and friendly personal service from your initial contact.
Our experienced consultants will work with you to develop a bespoke itinerary, choosing accommodation and activities that reflect your interests, passions and budget.
The holiday can be as relaxing or as active as you like. Accommodation options range from small boutique hotels and luxurious safari lodges to basic tribal long houses deep in the jungle. All will depend on your destination and the style of trip you wish to undertake...
How you travel is up to you, organising it is up to us, and it's something we believe we do extremely well.
Small group tours
Whether you want to track gorillas in Rwanda, explore the cultures of South America, or meet holy men in India, with one phone call to us you can access thousands of small group holidays and a world of possibilities.
Travelling as part of a small group is a great way to see the world and make friends with like-minded people. Experienced guides and imaginative itineraries enable you to get the best from your destination in an economical way. We offer an enormous range of small group adventure tours from many of the best adventure travel companies in the UK,
Small group tours are suitable for couples or small groups of friends, but they're also a great option for single travellers too, as many of our operators don't change single supplements.
Arranging expedition cruises in the Polar Regions is without doubt a specialist's arena - and to ensure you get the best experience and value for money on what is undoubtedly an expensive holiday, it pays to get quality, independent, impartial advice right from the beginning.
We can talk you through all the options, including which vessels will suit you and how to get the best guides.
We will also advise on when in the season to travel for your particular needs as when you go to either the Antarctic or Arctic with have a huge impact on the wildlife sightings and ice formations that you encounter.

In using our services you can be assured of top quality, impartial advice. We can assist you with choosing destinations and developing itineraries, as well as finding the most suitable tour operators. We can also remove much of the hassle and paperwork that group leaders are often required to handle. In addition, many of our operators are able to offer special rates to groups, and some even offer free places, depending on the size of group.
With your own group we can tailor a holiday to your exact requirements, and we are always happy to meet with your group in person to discuss the proposed trip in more detail, or come and give a slideshow to help whet the appetite.
