Our top cultural places to visit

Whether you are interested in discovering past civilizations such as the Maya at Chichen Itza, or the Inca at Machu Picchu as well as the Ancient Egyptians at Giza and the Pyramids, we can design a trip that enables you to see some of the amazing sights, and wherever possible, without the crowds.

A trip to the stunning Taj Mahal is a highlight of any trip to India and definitely lives up to its iconic reputation, as does a visit to the impressive ruins at Petra, or the world's largest religious monument at Angkor in Cambodia. Walking in the footsteps of others on the Great Wall of China is a breathtaking experience and a trip to Kyoto in Japan to explore its fascinating treasures is well worth a few days.

For more recent history and culture you can visit the romantic city of St Petersburg with its profusion of grand palaces, theatres, museums and galleries or the battlefields in South Africa, where you can experience the battles brought to life through some of the best guiding in the world.
