Delivering authentic, affordable and tailored travel experiences to a wide audience, Explore Tailormade allows customers the freedom to create the adventure of their dreams, at a price that suits them. With an inspiring new design, this year’s brochure contains a host of exciting sample itineraries costing from just £945 per person. What’s more, customers spending between £1,000 to £2,999 between now and 14th February 2014 will get £75 discount on their Tailormade tour, while those spending over £3,000 will save £150 per person*.
Ideally suited to travellers who want to get under the skin of a country but don’t necessarily have the time to plan their own trip, Explore Tailormade builds bespoke adventures based entirely on a customer’s budget and requirements. Customers can choose to follow or adapt one of Explore Tailormade’s sample itineraries, or can start from scratch with the help of a Regional Specialist. All of the sample itineraries include guide prices for ‘Authentic’, ‘Comfort’ and ‘Indulge’ accommodation – allowing customers to have a benchmark for how much their trip could cost, depending on what type of experience they require. Whether customers are looking to keep the costs down by eating, sleeping and travelling local, or if they are looking to indulge in luxurious and one-off experiences, then Explore Tailormade can offer something for them.
Costing from just £945 per person for an ‘Authentic’ experience, Explore Tailormade’s eight day Jordan’s Highlights itinerary follows the 5,000 year old King’s Highways to Petra, explores archaeological wonders, travels into the Wadi Rum desert by camel, spends the night under the stars in a Bedouin camp and journeys to the Dead Sea. Accommodation is simple but pleasant and includes the Dana Guesthouse which is run by the local community and is perched 1,000 metres above the Wadi Dana Basin, allowing for incredible views.

Ashley Toft, Managing Director of Explore and Explore Tailormade, commented “We have seen increased demand for tailor-made holidays over recent years as people have come to realise that bespoke holidays don’t have to come with a high price tag. With the help of our Regional Specialists, most of whom have lived, worked or travelled extensively in the areas in which they manage, we are able to recommend the best places to see, the most cost effective ways to get from A to B, and best value places to stay, enabling you to keep within your budget, no matter how big or small it is”.
He continued “Over the last couple of years we have expanded our portfolio and now offer tailor-made tours in over 23 countries. This year, we have focussed on re-designing the brochure so that it stands out from our Explore small groups’ collection. We believe that this is our most inspiring Explore Tailormade brochure yet – so much so in fact, it’s hard to know where to start”.
