Why travel with Steppes

A love affair with travel

For over thirty years we’ve put everything into making sure our knowledge, expertise and passion combine to create extraordinary travel experiences for our clients, wherever in the world they want to go.

We’re perfectly placed to deliver holidays tailored exactly to your requirements, bolstered by our experience, understanding and respect for local customs, the ‘ins and outs’ of the world’s destinations and for our planet.

Unrivalled expertise

Our people are our brilliance. Our globally recognised team of Travel Experts live and breathe their destinations, continuously exploring, learning and refining their knowledges to provide clients with insight and expertise born from real experiences.

Speaking to them provides an immediate and intimate connection with destination and accommodation that brochures cannot match; curating and suggesting travel experiences that’ll ignite your passions and turn new and long held dreams into reality.

A team you can trust

We’re with you every step of the way. Steppes Travellers explore every corner of our planet and, in an often-changing world, getting you there and bringing you home are always foremost in our thinking and dedication and support underpin the reason why 70% of our business is referral or repeat.

Should you want to change your itinerary before you go, or should something unexpected happen whilst you’re away, we’re on hand 24/7 to support you, allowing you to enjoy an assurance that standard holiday bookings cannot bring.

Sustainability at our core

We’re a Certified B Corp meaning that when you choose to travel with us, you’re choosing to help protect what matters.

Our Fund for Change programme supports community and sustainability projects and local charities across the globe and we offset carbon emissions from your flights. We insist our on-ground partners work to reduce their use of single-use plastics. And because protecting our planet is part of everything we do, you can travel in the knowledge that you’re contributing to its wellbeing with every step of your journey.

Delivering value at every step

We’re smart with how you spend. Our team works in the knowledge that whilst you’re looking for something extraordinary from your holiday, you’re also wanting to get best value along the way.

Your Travel Expert will always seek to find the best hotels to match your budget, search for the best prices on flights, give you a nudge about exclusive offers and add in little benefits, like protection from exchange rate fluctuations.

Helping you Discover Extraordinary

Stand out or don’t stand at all. Steppes was created to make exploring the world’s little-known and ‘off-the-beaten-track’ experiences easier and more accessible. We exist to make a big world smaller: turning holiday makers into explorers, tourists into travellers and the ordinary into the exceptional.

Every Steppes itinerary seeks to cast aside the everyday, conjuring unique and captivating moments that few will ever experience.
