“For the adventurous and the sociable, Explore offer more than 550 itineraries to over 140 countries from adult discovery tours to family trips, short breaks and tailor made holidays.”

Explore hit the road in 1981 thanks to three travelling companions who had breathed travel, eaten travel and slept travel for as long as they could remember.

Their blend of idealism and practical skills, and an unquenchable thirst for discovery soon translated into a very simple and successful formula:

Small group of like-minded people+ expert tour leader+ comfortable accommodation (minus frills)+ explore deeper+ (think + buy local) + (respect your guest + respect their environment)+ plan thoroughly but be adaptable------------------------------------------= EXPLORE!

Where they go

Over 140 countries covering Europe, Egypt and The Middle East, Africa, Southeast Asia, North and Central Asia, North America, Central America and the Caribbean, South America, Australasia, and the Polar regions.
