Will you join us?
This year we’re excited to launch our first TV advert featuring footage from our very own trips. You’ll be able to watch it on a range of channels including Channel 5, National Geographic, Discovery and Film 4. We believe we have a lot to shout about and we hope you agree.
We are trusted
With over 36 years’ experience planning adventure travel trips around the world, you can trust us to get your holiday just right. We’re part of all the leading tour operator organisations – such as AITO, ATOL and IATA – but we believe our responsibility extends further than that. We pride ourselves on our commitment to customer service, which is why 97% of our customers would travel with us again.
We are adventurous
On our holidays you can climb mountains if that’s your passion, but also choose from 313 trips and extensions that include time on the beach; you could even climb Kilimanjaro and relax on Zanzibar’s beaches all in one trip. You can travel on foot or two wheels on our walking and cycling holidays, or board an expedition vessel to explore the Galapagos or the polar regions. We are the pioneers of small group adventure travel, offering holidays to regions as far flung as you can imagine, such as the tribal regions of Borneo, the Exclusion Zone around Chernobyl with a photographer guide or the pyramids of Sudan.
We are responsible
Our planet isn’t a finite resource, and we’re committed to ensuring our trips leave as light a footprint on the world as possible. Over the years we’ve worked with a number of different charities to help our environment, from stopping all elephant rides on our trips to building toilets around the world. We promote the use of public transport, local accommodation and responsible tourism on all of our trips; not only does it help our planet, it also adds to your experience.
We are passionate
When we’re not personally test-driving our trips to make sure they’re the best they can be, we’re heading off on our own adventures across the world. Our in-house Explorers have travelled to 178 countries – that’s 91% of all recognised countries on the planet. We’ll take you to destinations as diverse as Ukraine and Uzbekistan, or on bucket-list trips like India’s Golden Triangle or setting foot on polar ice.
We are fun
We believe that time isn’t always the key to an incredible holiday, and you can pack just as much enjoyment into a long weekend as a month-long discovery trip. We strive to add fun to everything that we do; we ask our staff every six months to tell us how they feel, and over 90% think we’re fun to work for. The people are often what make our trips so special, so we choose our award-winning Leaders and guides based on the enthusiasm they add to our trips.
