Cultural Holidays

A cultural experience can be slurping cappuccino in Cafffe con Tre Effe (Café with Three Fs) in Rome, getting behind the scenes access to the Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg or joining Kazakh horsemen hunting with Golden Eagles in Mongolia.

It is a nebulous theme for a holiday and so covers a wide range of activities but if you tell us how you would like to experience local culture, we will find you the place and activity to make that happen. While we like to take the path less travelled at Steppes, a first time visit to any country will need to include the iconic ‘must sees’ – the Taj Mahal, Angkor Wat and Machu Picchu for example.

Let Steppes take care of this and experience these famous sites from a different perspective - watch the sunrise over the Taj Mahal from the banks of the Yamuna river with a private breakfast picnic, see Angkor from above by helicopter and take the alternative Inca Trail at Machu Picchu.

With our insider knowledge a cultural trip will include classic sites, secret spots and a widened mind.
