Essential Journeys

Luxury holidays with Exsus are handpicked and tailor-made for people looking to experience a destination while seeing some of the essential sites. These are the classic trips that take in the best of a destination and showcase its essential elements, especially for a first-time visitor.

They are about travelling your way while still seeing the highlights, with our added suggestions for how to personalise the trip to make it stand out from the off-the-shelf suggestions you’ll find elsewhere because, even on a perennially popular trip or on a holiday to a justifiably popular place, we can show you another side, introduce you to an alternative experience or simply add something to elevate your time away.

Talk to our team of well-connected travel specialists to start planning your personalised classic journey.
