“Travel the Unknown run personally researched trips to some of the world's least discovered destinations. Travel to tribal North East India, exotic Colombia, historical Syria, Jordan and Lebanon, stunning Eastern Turkey or welcoming Serbia. All tours have an emphasis on authentic culture that has gone unchanged by tourism. Tours go to remote locations a lone traveller would likely never find and the average tourist would never dare to venture.”

Travel The Unknown founders, David McGuinness and Rahul Aggarwal believe that to get the most out of any travel experience it's important to meet local people, and to do this you must move away from where other tourists go. Travel The Unknown's strength is in merging their fresh new ideas with the experience and knowledge of their local experts. This approach means that they have become the premier tour operators in each of the destinations where they run tours. Both scheduled small group departures as well as private and tailormade itineraries are available. In addition to their main off the beaten track tours, they also offer short add-on tours to some more conventional places for those wanting to take in certain well-know sights.
