What makes us different

Our tours visit some of the most remote places on our planet, where conditions can sometimes be challenging and infrastructure is often lacking.

Travelling in the destinations that we visit requires a good deal of understanding that often standards simply won’t be as they are at home. While we aim to make your trip run as smoothly as possible there may be times when we need to ask for your patience while we rectify any problems.

Our tours are not luxury tours they are small group adventure tours.

The trips are not designed to shield you from the realities of life in the countries visited, in fact we aim to show you as much as possible of the realities of life in the destination. In many of the countries that we operate in, tourism is in its infancy and although we strive to maintain as high standards as possible there may be occasions where you encounter discomfort, inconvenience or frustration. It is important that you are prepared to accept these countries as they are.

We have a great mix of people of all ages on our tours, ranging from their 20s to their 70s and over. There may be single travellers, couples or a group of friends and they have travelled from all over the world with different expectations and backgrounds. An open mind and a willingness to try and understanding different cultures is required by everyone in the group.

Read through ‘Our Philosophy’, details of the ‘Group travel and private tours’ and check the ‘Travel Grades’ to make sure that the trip you are looking at suits your needs.
