Journeys of Discovery - our unique approach

There's tailor made holidays, and then there's real tailor-made holidays! The difference? Really listening to you and understanding what makes you tick, so that the holiday we recommend has truly been crafted with you in mind. Yes, all tour operators can recommend classic itineraries which include all the main sites. We go a step beyond and include some special and unique experiences that will transform a good holiday into really memorable one; get a taste of Bollywood at the famous heritage listed Raj Mandir Cinema in Jaipur, get away from the crowds and explore the less visited Mutianyu section of the Great Wall in China or discover the lesser known temples of Dendera and Abydos in Egypt.
