Looking to commemorate a special day with a special holiday? Whether it’s a big birthday, a major life achievement or any other excuse for a big old celebration, consider booking an immersive private trip with us.

There are many reasons to opt for a private tour. You can share once-in-a-lifetime experiences with the people you love to hang out with most. It also allows for far greater flexibility on travel dates, group sizes (min. 4) and even age requirements – our small-group trips have a minimum age of 25, but that doesn’t have to be the case if you book private!

Epic Morocco

If you want to celebrate a big occasion by embarking on a truly immersive, large-scale voyage of discovery, then we think our 11-day tour of Morocco does the trick just fine. The diversity of this country is astounding, be it culturally or naturally. Our tour includes city fun in Casablanca and ancient Fes, as well as an unforgettable day trip to the unique blue city of Chefchaouen. You’ll visit ancient Roman ruins and have a home-cooked meal with a local family, before venturing deep into the Sahara for a night under the stars at a luxury desert camp. Gather around the fire for wine tasting and stargazing, before rising early for a sunrise camel ride. Next up is the epic gorges and rural Berber villages of the Atlas Mountains, which we’ll explore en route to Marrakech, where mouthwatering experiences await, including a street food tour and a Moroccan cooking masterclass.

The Real Costa Rica

There’s something different about this Central American paradise. Perhaps it’s the abundance of natural hot springs and the forest-dwelling sloths, or maybe its the ethereal cloud forests and tucked-away eco-lodges. Maybe it’s even the golden beaches, lined with palm trees, along the Pacific coast. You’ll get to explore all of the above on this once-in-a-lifetime itinerary in Costa Rica. Start with geothermal soaks and world-class coffee in Arenal Volcano National Park, before escaping to the high-altitude cloud forests of Monteverde. Stay in a rural lodge, master the art of Costa Rican cuisine and spot pumas on a nighttime forest hike, before eventually retiring to the laid-back surf town of Tamarindo, where you can make the most of beach life however you please, be it a surf lesson or sunbathing session.

Coastal Croatia

There’s something inherently glamorous about the shimmering waters of Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, making it a worthy destination to celebrate a special occasion. Our eight-day itinerary offers a comprehensive tour of this luxurious coastline, starting in ancient Split and ending on the iconic streets of Dubrovnik. The meat of this Mediterranean sandwich is an island-hopping extravaganza along some of the most scenic spots in all of Europe. Explore the eery abandoned military base and striking blue caves of Vis, before falling in love with the spectacular medieval walled city and dense forests of Korcula. Back on the mainland we’ll sample locally-grown grapes on a sumptuous Lumbarda wine tasting session and slurp down freshly caught oysters in Ston (famous for this seafood specialty) en route to Dubrovnik.

Ultimate Egypt

Sometimes the best way to celebrate a big occasion is simply by ticking off that thing that’s been on your bucket list for decades. Well, that’s where our comprehensive nine-day tour of Egypt comes in. This itinerary is like a hall of fame for travel experiences, including visits to the Great Pyramids, the Sphinx and a guided tour of Cairo, as well as a visit to the brand new Grand Egyptian Museum. You’ll also explore Luxor Temple illuminated by candlelight, dine on authentic Nubian cuisine and work on your haggling skills in the Souq of Luxor. The second half of this trip is spent gentling floating down the Nile on a luxury river cruise – when you’re not sipping cocktails and sunbathing on top deck, you’ll be hopping off-board to go kayaking along the world’s largest river. The beauty of booking this trip private? You can easily extend the trip with a visit to the historic site of Abu Simbel.
