Since 2011, travellers have trusted Culture Trip to help them discover the world’s best bits – our award-winning content proves it. Now we’re using that expertise to curate itineraries that will immerse you in the cultures we celebrate.

TRIPS by Culture Trip brings together the richest elements of travel to ensure an authentic experience, no matter the destination.

Curated by travel experts

All our adventures have been carefully planned by our team of travel experts; this crew are as passionate about travel as you are, dedicated to sharing only the most culturally enriching activities in the world’s most inspiring destinations.

Led by Local Insiders

Each trip is planned in house, but no one knows a destination better than a local. That’s why all our trips are led by an on-the-ground Local Insider, with in-depth knowledge that’s unmatched and guaranteed to lift the lid on a place, its people and its culture.

Shared with kindred spirits

Strangers soon become friends on our small-group trips

Our trips are designed for culturally curious travellers who embrace shared experiences and the spirit of small-group travel that never feels rushed. So whether you’re travelling solo or with a companion, it won’t be long before “strangers” start to feel like lifelong friends.

Hand-picked accommodation

We favour boutique stays, so there’s always something to look forward to at the end of the day

The wow factor isn’t limited to what you’ll do – it also applies to where you’ll stay. We favour boutique, culture-embracing hotels to enhance your travel experience and give you something to look forward to at the end of each day.

Focus on Covid-19 safety

Exclusive activities mean we’ve reduced exposure to other travellers wherever possible

Your safety and wellbeing are our top priority, so we’ve put measures in place on all our trips. These include controlled group numbers, daily deep-cleaning of vehicles, and exclusive activities to minimise exposure to other travellers.

End-to-end support

Our Customer Support team will be here to guide you through every step of your experience, whenever needed. We can help you choose your adventure and resolve any issues that may arise before or during your trip. Just drop us an email or give us a call.

Peace of mind

Flexible booking takes the stress out of planning your getaway

The world of travel is changing – and that’s why we’re offering flexible booking conditions, to take the stress out of booking in times of uncertainty. Our Ultimate Covid Booking Guarantee applies to any bookings made by 30 September 2021 for travel in 2021, which means that if Covid-19 changes your plans, we’ll rebook you for free. If we can’t rebook you, we’ll refund your trip.

For bookings outside of these dates, we won’t impose any change or cancellation fees. You can get a full refund if you need to postpone or cancel your trip up to 30 days prior to your departure. Alternatively, you can simply transfer your deposit and any funds paid to a different date without incurring any additional fees.

Minimum-impact travel

All our trips have been designed to minimise their impact on the planet

Now more than ever, the appetite to travel and experience the world is insatiable. Despite the disruption it has caused, the global pandemic has also given us the opportunity to reconsider the way we travel; how we can limit our impact on the environment and be more sustainable in the choices we make.

We want to facilitate those choices, which is why all our trips include overland travel only, while putting money into the pockets of locals wherever possible.

TRIPS of a lifetime

The Yucatán Peninsula is just one of many stunning destinations you can experience with TRIPS by Culture Trip

We’re launching TRIPS by Culture Trip with 30 immersive itineraries that are sure to spark your wanderlust. Travel with us to New Orleans for the inside scoop on live jazz and creole cuisine. Join us in Japan to become a sushi and sake connoisseur. Climb aboard a wildlife safari in Costa Rica or the Galápagos Islands. Hike frozen glaciers and chase the Northern Lights in Iceland, or dive into crystal-clear cenotes in Mexico Yucatán. And that’s just for starters!

Wherever you choose to travel with us, cultural immersion and authenticity are guaranteed – you need only book your trip, and let us take care of the rest.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.

Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.

Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.

Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.

We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm - and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
