Escorted Tours

ESCORTED GROUP ADVENTURE TOURS

As well as specialising in private and tailor-made holidays, we also offer a range of small group cultural and adventure holidays to exciting destinations around the world. These are fully guided by experienced local tour guides and run on regular departure dates throughout the year.

Our escorted tours run on much more restricted dates, and are fully accompanied by a specialist in their field. They often travel with you on your flights (from selected airports around the world), and will either lead the tour completely themselves, or work in conjunction with one of our local guides in each country you visit. The tours often include extra and more specialised visits, talks and workshops during the trip.

TOUR REVIEWS

We were very lucky there was only one other couple who were very nice and our guide was excellent. His name was Phuong. He had a lot of knowledge, put it over very well and was very concerned that we were all happy and always went out of his way to help and did 'the extra mile'. He really made the holiday so good
We thought it was a good tour but did not particularly enjoy the two full days at the seaside. It could have been cut back to one. We did enjoy the snorkeling and swimming. We would have also liked an extra day at Hulong Bay as it is a long journey each way and we barely had 24 hours there. Everyone was very pleasant and helpful in the tours and hotels

Good communication, questions answered promptly, documents in order. Very helpful.
Wonderful trip. Quality accommodation especially given the lower cost of the adventure. Well paced, very well taken care of by all staff. Amazing tour leader, Waleed Khamouna, PhD in Egyptology ... couldn't ask for more. Felt very secure the entire trip.

Very nice to have "hand holds" throughout, especially at Egyptian airports and all the staff were so friendly and helpful. Would recommend.
Fantastic tours and guides with good knowledge - the holiday does go at a pace however, to get everything in - no lie-ins if you really want to see everything! Egypt is a place I wouldn't really want to negotiate/navigate through on my own - Encounters saved a LOT of time and stress.

Excellent, prompt responses to any e mail enquiries, as well as efficient service over the phone when I was considering making the booking. Documents e mailed out as required.
A fabulous trip. Wonderful experience being part of a small group touring a truly amazing country. Sami, our guide, was fantastic - superb knowledge, delivered in a fun and relaxed style. A really outstanding, memorable trip.

Excellent service! Very professional and well organized! No problems whatsoever!
Awesome holiday! Fantastic experiences in a absolutely wonderful country. Truly enjoyed the people, their culture and history. *On this particular trip, I would advise taking in-country flights over rail travel for overnight transit based on price and amenities.
