  • Private touring – delicately balancing group and independent travel

    Do you find yourself tossing up between a group tour and going it alone? Each come with their own benefits. On a group tour, everything is taken care of, exclusive experiences are included and you often have a local expert guiding the way. Travelling independently means you can do what you want, when you want, and with whom you want. But what if you could have the best of both worlds? Introducing private touring. The perks of independent travel minus the stress.

    These private tours are especially made for the foodie, the nature lover, the music fan and the learner, but are suitable for all types of travellers looking for an authentic experience. Indulge in a farm-to-table dinner in Douro Valley’s renowned winery Quinta da Roêda that features locally sourced ingredients, cruise the scenic Mekong Delta after experiencing the fast lane of Ho Chi Minh City, ride in vintage open top Jeeps as you cover historical colonial era buildings and enjoy a finger-snapping, toe-tapping time on a tour of America’s most famed musical cities. And choose who comes with you.

    We’ve picked some of our favourites in North America, Portugal, Sri Lanka and Vietnam, but your personal travel manager can help decide which tour is right for you.
