We are proud to partner with Explore Worldwide, a leading operator in small group adventure tours. Explore’s tour itineraries are expertly curated by adventure travel specialists to deliver once-in-a-lifetime experiences. With small groups of around 12 guests and an expert local guide, Explore takes you right to the heart of your destination, its culture and its people.

Since launching in 1981 with only six tours in a four-page brochure, Explore has grown to offer hundreds of trips from classic ‘discovery’ group tours, solo traveller holidays and active family adventures to walking holidays and cycling trips. Choose from over 100 countries and explore cultures, landscapes, wildlife and communities from Asia to Africa, the Arctic and the Americas.


Climate change and animal welfare are top of Explore’s responsible travel approach. Their sustainability strategy is based on the 2015 UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

We think 12 people is a great average size for a group tour; big enough to meet like-minded people but small enough to travel around and see places easily.

Your Explore expert tour leader will make sure your trip goes smoothly and use their insider knowledge and local connections to give you some unique opportunities.

the Explore difference

Unforgettable experiences

On Explore trips, you'll see a mix of famous sights and hidden gems that others miss or don't even know about. As travellers, they want their guests to experience a country, not merely observe it. Explore takes you closer to the country, its culture, people and wildlife, often in unscripted, spontaneous, impossible-to-replicate ways. You'll come home having seen and experienced the country in a way that other travellers might never have.

Expert local guides

On Explore guided trips, the tour leader will use their expert insider knowledge and local connections to make the most of unexpected opportunities. You might be invited to share a traditional drink or meal with locals or to join family Diwali celebrations. They'll be on hand to make sure your trip goes smoothly, taking care of logistics. Explore tour leaders are all handpicked and trained by their experienced team to ensure consistently high standards.

Small groups

The average group size on Explore tours is just 12; big enough to meet like-minded people but small enough to get to the heart of a destination. All sorts of people travel on Explore trips; groups are usually a mix of solos, couples and friends united by an adventurous spirit and a sense of fun.

Responsible at heart

Explore’s commitment to sustainable travel means that trips are Gold Standard carbon offset, and they work hard to ensure they have a positive impact on the communities they visit. All Explore trips have a carbon measurement rating, with the aim of reducing their footprint by 50% by 2030. For each trip booked, as well as being carbon offset, Explore makes a donation to Rewilding Britain and Cool Earth, which protects rainforests and supports indigenous communities. They also support many other charities around the world.
