We have been organising cultural journeys to the Americas, Africa, Asia and the Middle East since 1996.

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.

Customised Travel

In addition to offering the tours listed on this site, we are also very experienced at organising customized itineraries for individuals, small parties, and special interest groups.

”The journey was truly memorable and it will take some time for the epic to sink in. What a find you have with Jamie Greenbaum! Words can not express the debt of gratitude which we all felt for the way in which Jamie informed us, stimulated our thinking, entertained us and bubbled with enthusiasm.”

"We were captivated by Dr Ramble's knowledge and passion for his subject. I think we were extraordinarily fortunate to be accompanied by someone who is surely one of the pre-eminent scholars in this field of study. He was an excellent travelling companion and central to the group's cohesiveness and good humour. His unflappable approach, local knowledge ensured that difficult situations were resolved and the trip always ran smoothly; the star of the trip!"

"The meeting in Tbilisi with the head of the Strategic Studies Centre, in which he spoke to us with suppressed emotion, revealed to us as much as anything the political factors operating in Georgia today. Our visit to the cathedral on a Sunday, when scores of people were celebrating a Sung Eucharist, will always stay in my memory. The harmonised singing of the liturgy was an inspiration."
