Country Explorer

Discover one country in depth

Search Country Explorer trips

Take the time to explore one country. Dive in, meet the locals and share their stories.  You’ll come away with a deeper appreciation of everything it has to offer. Not to mention some extraordinary memories.

You’ll stay in hand-picked 4 or 5-star accommodation, travel in air-conditioned luxury and have every detail of your trip arranged for you, so you can devote all your time to a thorough appreciation of your new surroundings.

The insider experience

All our Country Explorer trips include Insider Experiences. So, for instance, if you take one of our Turkey trips, you might learn how to make the bread with the locals of Demircidere and savor their local homemade wine, or dine with a local family in a century-old Ottoman-style house.

You can always rely on your Travel Director to fill you in on the subtler points of Turkish etiquette with regards to what you can and can’t wear when you enter the Blue Mosque, with its six minarets and gorgeous blue iznik tiles. And we’ll arrange VIP entry to many attractions so you avoid the queues.
