We are an International Travel Company dedicated to researching and promoting tours to UNESCO World Heritage Sites in countries well known to us. Our aim is to make the experience of visiting these very special and unique places as rewarding, enjoyable and memorable as possible.
We create the tours but we are not the tour operators. After completing our research we appoint local tour operators carefully chosen for the professional and personal service that they offer to run the tours.
Our tour operators are regulated in accordance with their respective country’s requirements for inbound tour operators. Several are also members of Skal International a long standing professional organization of tourism leaders around the world promoting global tourism and friendship in accordance with the ideals of UNESCO.
Your contract will be with the Tour Operator and their booking conditions will apply.

About Our Tours
We prefer to be travellers not tourists, and our tours are designed for independent travellers and small scheduled groups not large coach parties.
Tours are for land arrangements only leaving you free to make your own preferred international travel plans. Our tour operators can, if requested, offer advice on suitable flights, trains etc. They can also arrange hotel accommodation for you before or after your tour.
We offer both private and scheduled tour options depending on the country to be visited. The tours highlight inscribed UNESCO World Heritage Sites but also include other nearby places of interest and sites nominated by the host country for possible addition to the World Heritage list in the future.
Personalised tours can also be arranged for special interest groups.
All escorted tours are conducted in English.
Private tour prices vary depending on the time of year you plan to visit and the number in your group (min 2, max 8). Tour prices are quoted in local currency.
We are very selective about the accommodation we use in our tours. All hotels and guest houses have been carefully chosen by us for their quality, comfort and location. Our goal is simple: we only choose places where we would wish to stay ourselves.
All tours are subject to availability, early booking is recommended particularly at peak holiday times.
