About our tours

We do three main kinds of tours:

  • Discovery trips are the most popular kind of adventures that we do and will give you the widest choice of destinations. You'll see the cultural and historical highlights as well as discover local hidden gems.
  • Walking and Trekking tours offer you the chance to explore a destination on foot, getting you up close to all the highlights as well as off the beaten track. We’ve got trips to suit walkers of all levels and interests, from leisurely strolls to challenging treks that leave you with a real sense of achievement.
  • Cycling trips are a great way to get under the skin of a country and see more on two wheels. We’ve got tours to suit all levels of ability, experience and interests; from occasional weekend bike riders to keen regular cyclists.

The ‘average’ group consists of around 12 people, roughly half couples and half solo travellers. Our local tour leaders are the glue that holds everything together and go out of their way to ensure you have the trip of a lifetime.
