Customized Travel

In addition to offering the tours listed on this site, we are also very experienced at organizing customized itineraries for individuals, small groups, and special interest groups. By designing your own program you can create your own itinerary and travel at your own pace. It allows the flexibility of including the meals you want and staying at the hotels you want. You can decide how often you want to be with a local guide and when and where you want a driver. With more than twenty years of experience in Africa, Asia and the Middle East we have the knowledge and contacts to provide an excellent itinerary at a reasonable price. Travel to this part of the world is our passion and we would enjoy a chance to share our enthusiasm with you in developing a wonderful customized program. We can provide this same service for institutions and have been doing so for thirty years.
