We are a UK-based tour operator, specialising in offering interesting and high quality experiences that bring the World’s most fascinating cultures to the forefront of the holiday to give visitors a rewarding, inspiring and refreshing experience through genuine contact with those people. We let them show you round some of the World’s iconic locations, which are also their homelands.
We offer land-only, guided packages in iconic locations, where you meet and are hosted by the local people/culture - e.g. Treks with the Berber in Morocco, Seeing Petra with the Bedouin, Living with the Touareg in Mali or activity holidays with the Navajo in the American Southwest. Our tours offer a mixture of traditional comfort and modern luxury, of classic sites and unique locations and of relaxation and exciting activities. We hope that our clients come home refreshed and inspired, but maybe with a new view on living and on those cultures.

How the minimum criteria of the responsible travel standard was met...
Economic responsibilityWhere we can, we work with partner companies in the destinations that are locally-owned
We tell our customers more about this within each country programme under a section titled "About your guide"
We have identified and work with a number of ground handling partners who have strong local links and ownership
Environmental responsibilityWe are committed to the preservation of the habitats of the regions covered by our trips
We ask our local ground handling partners to take a low-impact, self-contained approach
The company requires that the people who work for us do not leave rubbish anywhere and respect the environment with preservation of resources, flora and fauna, etc.
Social responsibility Where possible we use companies that employ local people & use local suppliers
we make sure that their payment policy is fair for the services given
Where possible, we will also contribute to community welfare through partnerships with local agencies in developing local projects
