Why book with Explore?

Since launching in 1981 with only six tours in a four-page brochure, we’ve grown to offer over 500 trips; from classic ‘discovery’ group tours, solo traveller holidays and active family adventures, to walking holidays, cycling trips and even self-guided options. Choose from over 120 countries and explore cultures, landscapes, wildlife and communities from Asia to Africa, the Arctic to the Americas.

Expert itineraries and local guides

We create itineraries that will take you off the beaten track to fully experience the culture of each destination and we work with local guides who are uniquely placed to add richness and spontaneous moments to every trip. So while we understand you want to see the defining sights of a country; we also know that it’s authentic travel experiences that really matter.

Hand-picked accommodation

We carefully select accommodation to balance comfort with location. That generally means you’ll stay in three-star accommodation with en suite facilities – you’ll only sleep in a tent if it’s the best way to see the stars. Look out for details on our trip pages which explain the accommodation grade of each trip.

Small group sizes

Our average group tour size is just 12; perfect for meeting new people and getting to the heart of our destinations. The minimum and maximum size of each trip is detailed on trip pages.

Trip pace to suit you

We understand that for some, a fully-packed itinerary is the best way to experience a country – for others, some downtime to explore on your own is just as important. We cater for both ends of the spectrum and explain the pace of holidays on each trip page.

Loyalty scheme

We like to reward our most loyal customers with a thank you for travelling with us again. We also have ways to save if you are travelling in a group. So once you’ve caught the travel bug, we make it a little easier to keep coming back for more.

Responsible travel

We’re all seasoned travellers ourselves, and that experience underpins our responsible travel philosophy. We believe travel should change us, not the world. That communities and cultures should benefit and flourish and that we should leave nothing but footprints behind. That is why responsible travel is at the core of everything we do.
