We want to show you this big, beautiful world in a whole new way. One that puts you in control and gives you access to our little black book of incredible properties, people and experiences. We believe that each trip should be as special and unique as you are. It should be magical, life-affirming and inspirational, which is why we design each itinerary around you. Stay in the finest accommodations, meet the locals, sip the wine, learn something new, and enjoy authentic, personal experiences that you’ll cherish forever. Welcome to Scott Dunn.

Our travel experts are the best in the business. Most have lived and worked in their specialist regions as locals. They have friends, stories and roots there, and they return for four weeks each year to fine tune their knowledge. When they share their favorite restaurant, backstreet bodega or most romantic proposal spot, you know they were there themselves not long ago. This expertise combined with our contact list of incredible guides and an impeccable door to door service has earned us the reputation of being the go-to tour operator if you seek spectacular experiences, from after hours tours of the Vatican to a private candlelit dinner in the Taj Mahal.

All that’s left for you to do is sit back, relax and anticipate the journey of a lifetime.

Guest testimonials

"I cried when the trip was over. I've never done that before. Sure, I've been bummed when a vacation ended, but I cried! A fabulous opportunity for our children. Everything was fantastic."

Guest testimonials

"The level of service we experienced was first class and everything was very well organized. When we first contacted Scott Dunn to discuss our vacation we really had very little idea of what was on offer in Australia. Thanks to Sophie we got a really varied experience of the country and she more than met our brief of planning a vacation for a family with grown up children."
