Expert Led Group Tours

We are recognised as one of the UK's leading specialists in cultural, historical and archaeological small group tours. Our aim is to offer:

  • Tours to 'beyond the ordinary' destinations
  • Average group size of just eight to ten people
  • An enviable pool of Tour Lecturers and Experts

Formally The Traveller, we pride ourselves on offering a diverse range of small group tours. From classic itineraries including our classic tour to Iran with Sylvie Franquet and group tour to Uzbekistan with Chris Aslan Alexander.

What makes us different from other group tour specialists?

  • Our average group size is typically eight to ten people, smaller than other group tours typically offered - a factor which many of our clients appreciate.
  • Travelling as part of a smaller group provides a more intimate, personalised and relaxed atmosphere.
  • In addition to this, gratuities for the local guides, drivers and hotel porters are included for all our group tours.
