About our small group cultural discovery tours
We offer hundreds of cultural discovery holidays to extraordinary destinations all over the world; from bucketlist favourites like India and Italy to more unusual, less-visited destinations like Kazakhstan and Lebanon. They're designed to fully immerse you in the culture of your destination, as well as include the must-dos, like visits to key landmarks, walks and wildlife spotting. And alongside the essential things to see, we work hard to add in extraordinary experiences you wouldn't otherwise get, like meals with locals and unique accommodation like home stays.
Our Discovery tours allow you to get under the skin of your destination and fully explore. The average group size on these small-group tours is just 12, meaning you'll have like-minded travellers with you, but not too many to disrupt your trip.
On a Discovery tour you'll be led by a local tour guide. These tour leaders have expert knowledge about the areas you'll travel and will make sure your trip is not only safe and comfortable but unforgettable in all the right ways.
