Most of our journeys are accompanied by a guest scholar who is responsible for providing a strong educational component to the trip. Our philosophy is very much that of the ‘caravanserai’ – a chance to meet other travellers in comfortable if unusual surroundings, to learn, exchange views and understand more of our world.
The experts that accompany our trips are not just excellent in their fields but fine communicators and good travelling companions. We go to great effort in arranging special meals, private meetings and behind the scenes visits.
