Who can we design custom itineraries for?

We can design private tours for groups of two or more. In the past four decades we have tailor-made itineraries for hundreds of groups, both small and large. Below is just a selection of the groups we have collaborated with to design their dream adventure:

  • Special interest groups – from botany to architecture, photography to bird watching, yoga journeys to culinary experiences, writing to sports clubs
  • Milestone events: birthday, graduation etc
  • Family adventures and intergenerational trips
  • Couples, newlyweds, honeymoon or anniversary celebrations
  • Corporate bonding and conventions
  • Pilgrimages

What is the process to customise your itinerary?

1. Complete the form above: Let us know your ideal trip; where you wish to travel, how many are in your group, what you want do and an estimated date of departure and length. Our adventure travel experts will give you suggestions for an unforgettable journey.

2. We'll create a tailored quote: Once you are happy with the itinerary and inclusions, we will put together a full set of detailed trip notes outlining the daily itinerary, trip highlights, prices, inclusions and exclusions, ensuring each member of your group has a clear idea of the adventure ahead.

How do we make your private tour an experience-rich journey?

What others say


Don't just take it from us, here are what others have to say about their private group travel experience with us.

”What I loved about this experience was I could set my own itinerary, choose when I wanted to travel and what I wanted to see and World Expeditions did the rest for me. I pieced together the Sapa Eco Retreat, the Halong Bay Extension and then explored Hoi An on my own, staying at the recommended hotel. Once I arrived the transfers, hotels, guides etc were taken care of. As this was a private trip, and a custom itinerary, I was able to choose a guide for regions where I wanted the extra insight and explore solo where I wanted the extra freedom and independence.”

Louise SheridanNorthern Vietnam

"We had a fantastic 18 day private tour of China. Every place we went to was amazing. Our tour guide looked after us really well. It was great to travel on different modes of transports buses, trains, boats, planes and even bikes."

Cathy SmithHighlights of China

”From day one we were treated like royalties, the hotels in Lima, Cusco, Yucay and Aguas Calientes were in great locations, friendly staff and warm rooms. The attention of the guides and the chauffeurs was exceptional. Being a private adventure, we could freely pick their brains and improvise on venues which was brilliant. A gradual build-up in altitude, even reaching 4,200 m, no problems whatsoever. A lifelong dream came through the day we did the 1 day Inca trek. A bit steep in the beginning, but pacing ourselves, it was great. Steps easy to manage, flora amazing, scenery breathtaking and to be blessed with blue skies as we walked through the Sun Gate - and there it was, Machu Picchu! Champagne corks popping around us! Sharing the moment with brimming faces around us. Then the Inca site with all the intricate stonework, The Temple of the Sun with its curved walls and the endless terraces. Truly blessed to have gained an insight into this culture. Just do it!”

Unni PorthillBest of Peru

"Our trip to the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro was an amazing experience. It was physically challenging at times - our guides and porters looked after us so well. They were so positive and encouraging and knowledgeable and made all the difference. Thank you Henry, Alpha and Bertram and all your team for making our journey so special and successful. "
