  • Our in country expert says

    We are excited to introduce our new collection of Luxury group tours.

    We have felt for some time that there is a need for a different approach to Group travelling, so we searched for distinctive smaller hotels that deliver luxury service and blended in exclusive experiences and privileged access to special attractions. Tours are open to a maximum of 20 people, so our guests are never lost in the crowd. Our luxury tours are above all an enriching experience shared in the company and security of like-minded travelers.
