Take Me Back
Fresh takes on timeless destinations
Turkey Explored with Topdeck
Bounce from Istanbul to Cappadocia to Troy and beyond with a band of fun-loving 18-to-30-somethings. Transcend time at Turkey’s many historical sites – Ephesus, Gordion, and Hierapolis to name a few. Indulge in local flavours between busy market stalls, dip your toes off the Turquoise Coast in Fethiye, and set off on a private boat cruise. From posing beside the “suggestive” rock formations of Love Valley to hiking through UNESCO World Heritage Sites, this entire journey will have you thinking “I can’t believe I’m really seeing this!”
Gems of Umbria & Tuscany with Globus
Centuries of history come to life on this slow journey through forgotten medieval towns, abandoned prisons, mysterious caves, and magnificent basilicas. Sample olive oil fresh from the mill in Frantoio di Spello, wind your way through cobblestoned streets, and add your wish to the myriad in town square fountains of old.
Offbeat getaways for the fearless
Victoria Falls to Johannesburg with On The Go
This tour is BYOSB: bring your own sleeping bag! Follow the leader from the unreal views at Victoria Falls to the vibrant city of Johannesburg, taking nothing but the scenic route. Explore Kruger and Chobe National Parks by horseback, make some unlikely friends at a crocodile ranch, cruise down the Chobe River, and fall asleep each night to the sounds of the wild.
Highlights of Thailand with Intrepid
Turn your Thailand ‘must-sees’ into ‘must-dos’ with Intrepid! Learn to create colourful, aromatic dishes with local chefs in Chiang Mai. Hop on a bicycle and explore the ins and outs of Sukhothai. Spend a night rocking in a sleeper train or listening to the nocturnal wildlife from a H’mong Hilltribe Lodge. Join in traditional dances, pay your respects in Buddhists temples, and walk along the gentle giants at an elephant hospital.
Unexpected routes, ready for discovering
Backroads of Japan with G Adventures
Start in Tokyo, go where you least expect! Temples and tea houses, sand dunes and shrines, meet the Japan most travellers don’t get to see. Scale the Japanese Alps to greet snow monkeys, take a dip in the hot springs of Ogoto Onsens, ride a bike through historical samurai grounds. You’ll adventure your way to Kyoto, stopping at fish markets, zen gardens, and the homes of welcoming hosts at every turn.
Heart of England with Blue-Roads Touring
Bookworms, meet Blue-Roads. From Hogwarts lookalikes to Bill Shakespeare’s stomping grounds, a deep dive tour is worth a thousand words. Discover the inspiration for countless poets, professors, and playwrights in the gorgeous settings of Bath, Oxford, Cotswolds, Avebury, and beyond. You’re invited to high tea at Castle Combe, to a private tour of Longleat House, and to pinch yourself as a reminder that, no, you’re not dreaming.
Outside the Box
One of a kind experiences
Christmas in London with Collette
If you start your Christmas countdown every January (if not December 26th), this holiday – in every sense of the word – is your wish come true. Do your Christmas shopping in London’s iconic department stores and boutiques, see Buckingham Palace lit up with pearls of light, and enjoy a Christmas dinner complete with pudding, mulled wine, and good company. From Westminster Abbey to Oxford to Blenheim Palace, experience the most wonderful time of the year in the heart of it all.
Tulip Time Cruise for Garden & Nature Lovers with Avalon
Stroll, cycle, and cruise your way through some of Europe’s finest florals. Avalon unlocks the door to Amsterdam’s secret gardens, Antwerp’s sprawling botanical gardens, and exclusive workshops with the leading green thumbs of Belgium and the Netherlands.

Taste for More
Gastronomic globe-trotting at its finest

Linger in Lyon to discover one of the world’s foodie capitals, wine and dine at Moulin Rouge, sunbathe and clink glasses on the elite beaches of the French Riviera. Be the guest of honour for a home-cooked Provençal meal, and walk through the cellars of Château-Neuf-du-Pape.
