Travel The Unknown

Travel The Unknown runs small group & tailormade tours in numerous destinations throughout Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, Africa and the Balkans. With over 70 itineraries to choose from, we are confident they will satisfy your wanderlust and yield new, exhilarating experiences. Our team have travelled extensively in each of these destinations so we bring first-hand knowledge as well as our local partners’ considerable experience in crafting tours to meet your travel requirements.

History and archaeology lovers can discover the birthplace of humanity in Ethiopia and marvel at the world’s first temple at Göbekli Tepe in Eastern Turkey. Those seeking iconic experiences might consider a candle-lit visit to ancient Petra in Jordan, mouth-watering culinary classes in Morocco, Mexico and Vietnam or tiger-spotting in India. For more exceptional adventures visit the former Persian capital of Persepolis in Iran, a jungle trek to the Lost City in Colombia, or witness unique festivals in India, Ethiopia or Colombia.

We source the best available guides and where possible, we organise exclusive accommodation - Indian palaces, luxury camps, characterful homestays, boutique guesthouses, jungle lodges and heritage properties to name just a few. 

We look forward to welcoming you on one of our tours soon!
