Use our local knowledge to gain insights into the lives of local people all around the world on a tailor-made cultural holiday by witnessing their lifestyles and interacting with them.
It could be by getting-together with locals in Italy or enjoying a family’s hospitality on a homestay in India. Maybe it’s by spending time with Maori elders or Aboriginal guides who can explain their heritage and introduce you to their customs while you explore. Or meeting hill tribes in the highlands of Vietnam or Myanmar and headhunters in Borneo. Alternatively treat your senses to the sensory overload of the souks and markets in Oman and Morocco, get to grips with the spirituality of Sri Lanka and attempt to navigate the cultural soup of Japan.
Time your travel and arrive at a destination in time for its traditional festivals and you’ll also see another thrilling side to a country, whether you’re in Rio for Carnival, Cusco for Semana Santa, Sienna for Il Palio or New Orleans for Mardi Gras.
