Discovery Tours Abroad

Experience more than a regular tourist as you immerse yourself in a new country and culture

Put on your walking shoes and grab your backpack, because you’re going on an adventure! Our Discovery Tours are about exploring a destination in a way that fully immerses you in its culture and lifestyle. You’ll find a new perspective, and experience what makes your destination special to visitors and locals.

Our Discovery Tours are perfect for anyone looking to travel and have an authentic adventure in a new destination. The delicacies that feel like a celebration on your tongue; the hidden spots waiting for you to discover them; the cultural quips and slang only locals know about. You’ll do much more than visit a new country. You’ll explore and understand what makes it different.

You’ll have the company of like-minded travelers and our expert local staff to make sure your journey is hassle-free. Our primary goal is for you to have a novel experience, while you discover what you’re capable of.

Is a Discovery Tour right for me?

Our Discovery Tours are just what every curious traveler needs. You can expect to experience plenty of new sights that the average tourist wouldn’t get to see. You may only be visiting, but you’ll be so immersed in the culture that you may feel like you’ve found your second home!

Discovery Tours are for any explorers over 18 years old who want to journey abroad and find the secrets of the world, its people, and landscapes. If you want to travel safely with a group of people and don’t have much time, this is the perfect trip for you. Your expedition is action-packed and structured, so you and your group will have a full experience abroad.

This global expedition will positively impact you and build your perspective. It’ll also feed that inner explorer with some travel miles (and locally-cooked food). Sounds like the perfect kind of trip to take.

You can do a Discovery Tour before or after you’ve completed your volunteer project or internship in a destination, or as a stand-alone trip.

What will I gain from joining a Discovery Tour?

Our Discovery Tours takes you to the edge of the metaphorical cliff, equips you with a hang glider, and then waits for your word. When you’re ready, you and our expert guide take off together and feel the thrill of soaring through the skies.

We take you to the edge, but you have to make the jump. That way, you discover for yourself what each destination has to offer, and we stand back and make sure it happens safely.

You’ll gain knowledge of how to travel through a new country responsibly, and interact with the locals respectfully. Any questions you had about traditions, culture, and the local people will be answered as you stay and live with them.

You may even learn some of the local secrets on cooking, clothes, nature, and life in general. But with those answers, you’ll also find more questions to ask, and that’s the beauty of discovery. It’s a personal journey more than anything else, and we’ll simply guide you through.
