Our new itineraries deliver a uniquely immersive experience – the chance to get right under the skin of your fascinating destinations in a way that few holidays allow.

The following itineraries can all be tailored to your exact needs and wishes by your Travel Counsellor to feature the kind of interesting inclusions that make it a deeply rewarding and utterly unforgettable experience.
Rome to Sorrento: a Tour of Southern Italy
This is a short but very diverse trip that packs masses of history, culture and adventure –and plenty of dolce vita! Over the course of five nights, you’ll explore the dramatic ruins of Rome as well as take a foodie tour of this 'Eternal City', discover the colourful, sun-drenched Amalfi Coast and the idyllic islands of Capri and Anacapri by private boat trip, and enjoy some beach life in the coastal town of Sorrento, famed for its lemon groves that produce the ingredients for the famous limoncello liqueur. You also have the option of a visit to Vatican City and St Peter’s Basilica.
Mexico City to Playa del Carmen
Over 11 nights, this adventure weaves together jaw-dropping ancient ruins and paradisiacal coastlines, award-winning restaurants and off—the-beaten-track street-food stalls. Exploring Mexico City, Puebla and Oaxaca, and discovering the ancient secrets of the Teotihuacan, Cholula and Mitla ruins in the company of expert guides, you’ll meet wonderful people and get a real insider feel for one of the world’s most thrilling and compelling destinations. Expect everything from an Oaxacan cooking class to a boat ride through the 35-million-year-old Sumidero Canyon.
Istanbul to Cappadoccia
From an Ottoman-style stay in Istanbul to a tour of the famous ‘fairy towers’ of Göreme in central Turkey (and two nights in a ‘cave hotel’ carved into the volcanic tufa), the highlights of this east-meets-west land are revealed to you over this bewitching five-night tour. The culinary highlights are a meal of juicy kebabs slow-cooked in a sealed clay pot and dinner at a women’s cooperative. Meanwhile, there’s a tour of the Kaymakli underground cave-city, a hike through valleys, a pottery demonstration, and the optional extra of a balloon ride over Cappadoccia’s spires – one of the world’s most magical destinations for taking to the air in a wicker gondola.
