Holiday types

We have over three hundred tours and events in fifty different countries, and they range from single-day seminars to seventeen days in Peru. Rooted in knowledge of the destination and subject matter, our itineraries are original and imaginative, well-paced and carefully balanced. The group size is usually between ten and twenty, but for our music festivals the numbers often rise to 2-300. All of them are accompanied by a speaker or speakers – experts.

Tours for small groups

Tours with no more than twenty-two people, staying in the same hotel with an expert lecturer.
