A cultural tour is an enriching and educational experience, a reminder of both the staggering diversity of the human race and of the things we all have in common. Learn about unique traditions and customs in remote corners of the world, or get under the skin of more familiar destinations and find out what really makes the locals tick. You could spend some time trekking between the hilltribe villages of northern Thailand, camp out under the stars with Bedouin nomads, or discover the beautiful Byzantine churches and Ottoman mosques of the Balkans. A cultural escorted tour gives you a deeper insight into the people, traditions and belief systems of the place that you’re visiting, and you’ll be accompanied by knowledgeable and passionate local guides.
