Food & drink

Food and drink have the power to reveal the soul of a place. The plum and cedar notes of a fine South African red; the fluffiest Bengali-style potatoes; a simple picnic of yielding Saint-Nectaire with crunchy bread and cornichons; the zing of fresh chilies on the tongue; the merry din of a bustling Thai market. A culinary vacation is a sensual safari that evokes memories, binds people together and teases out your adventurous side.

Vacations with wildlife

If you love the great outdoors and the miracle of nature, a vacation that takes you deep into wildlife could be perfect. From an epic safari adventure in Africa, to exploring the jungle in Costa Rica, or taking a cruise around the Galapagos islands, we have many exciting options for you.

Health & wellness

Life can get a little crazy sometimes so isn't it great to know that you can escape to a luxury health and wellness retreat in a far flung destination to invigorate body and soul? Selflessly, our travel experts have tried them all so if you want to bliss out at an underwater spa in the Maldives, bend like a pretzel at a beach yoga retreat in Mexico, or refocus your mind a spiritual bolthole in the Himalayas, you're truly spoiled for choice.

Scuba diving

Whether you’re an experienced diver or just starting out, we can help you explore more of the blue planet’s reefs, lagoons and shipwrecks, tailoring a vacation to suit your standard.

Events & Parties

Reward your company with a team-building vacation, or celebrate a major birthday somewhere exotic with your closest friends. Whatever the occasion and whatever you’d like the focus to be, we can tailor a special event for you.


Wild rainbow trout in Chile, chasing tarpon in the Central American jungles, or big game fishing in Africa? Whatever your preferred catch-of-the-day, we can arrange a fishing vacation to suit you.

Golf & tennis

If you enjoy a bit of sport during your vacation, we can advise on the best places to go for golf, tennis, and other sports. We can also arrange any equipment you need, too.

Riding vacations

If you or your children love horseback riding or want to give it a go on vacation, we have a host of ideas that will give you the chance to live the life of a cowboy, gallop through the waves on a white sandy beach, or just take a few riding lessons somewhere seriously unexpected.

Sailing, kite & windsurfing

From full-blown sailing excursions for avid sailing fans, to messing about on a dinghy or trying your hand at windsurfing for first time, whatever your experience, we can tailor your vacation accordingly.

Short breaks

Not everyone wants to go away for a whole week. If time is of the essence, we can arrange a short break where you see and do lots, but still come home feeling rested and relaxed – in the space of just a few days. It’s all in the clever planning, which is where we come in.

Summer in the Alps

Spending time in the mountains doesn’t just have to be confined to the winter months. In fact, the Alps are arguably at their most spectacular during the summer when the snow-capped peaks and lush green valleys below provide a stunning and contrasting landscape which is visually enrapturing. Warm temperatures during the day and cool nights provide a pleasant climate for all.

Barges & river cruises

Discover a hidden world of rural French villages, vineyards and chateaux from the comfort of your luxury barge, mooring in beautiful locations each evening to enjoy delicious gourmet dinners. Pick up handcrafted gifts at Christmas markets on a festive cruise along the Danube, watching as each new city hoves into view as you sip your morning coffee on deck. Or take a slow boat through China and soak up the spectacular mountain scenery. The only drawback of a river cruise? The view from your window back home may find it tough to compete.

Cultural & heritage

Whether you're a history buff or in search of your family roots, a cultural or heritage vacation gets beneath the skin of your destination and brings the stories of the past to life. Whether your niche is medieval monarchs, ancient civilizations, food or fashion, even spooky lantern-lit ghost tours, you'll explore in the company of the very best local guides, stay in beautiful historic properties, and travel in style in vintage cars and luxury trains.
