We aim to take our customers beyond the normal tourist trail and know that, for many, the actual destination is more important than the accommodation itself. However, we also appreciate that many travellers prefer comfortable, stylish or luxurious accommodation.
Our regional specialists have visited a wide range of accommodation options – from bush camping in the desert and authentic village houses, to some of the finest boutique hotels around. We do this so we can offer the widest possible variety of accommodation styles to suit every budget.
When putting together an itinerary, we will ensure that we listen to your requirements for accommodation and mix and match until we’ve got the right accommodation at the right price just for you.
We rate our accommodation based upon the following gradings:
Light on your pocket but long on authentic experiences, these tailor-made tours are based in simple, sometimes local-style accommodation. If your idea of adventure travel is to experience real, everyday life then you will enjoy our Authentic level tours. You will have the chance to stay at simple, family-run hotels and guesthouses where the lack of luxury is more than compensated for by a warm welcome and genuine insights into local life.
On Comfort level tailor-made tours you will stay at comfortable mid-range hotels, chosen for their location, ambiance or local character. Your rooms will be clean and well-appointed, with en suite bathrooms and air-conditioning or heating as necessary. Comfort level hotels normally have restaurants, bars and often other amenities such as a swimming pool and gardens, offering a good level of comfort at a reasonable price.
If you are looking for the best of both worlds, with adventurous days and indulgent nights, our Indulge level tailor-made tours may be just the answer. On these tours you can enjoy busy days packed with adventure and activity, followed by relaxing evenings unwinding in the comfort of accommodation hand-picked for its high level of comfort and service. Some hotels are full of historical interest too: a converted palace in India for example, or a restored colonial mansion in Latin America.
