Here’s what they say about themselves:
“Established in 1991, The Imaginative Traveller has grown steadily to become one of the world’s leading operators of small group adventure tours.
“Our aim has always been to provide exceptional travel experiences. We believe that travel should be stimulating, and that it should give you an authentic experience of a place. We want our travellers to relish the amazing diversity of countries and cultures the world has to offer. Our focus is on innovation, not imitation.
“One of our strengths has been our obsession with quality. We’ve always believed that our commitment to you doesn’t end as soon as you’ve paid for your holiday. On the contrary, it is just beginning. Whilst most operators simply get a local company to handle the day to day operation of their tours, we do it all ourselves. We have managers based in all our key destinations around the world and all our groups are escorted by our own leaders. Our local teams include guides, drivers, administration staff and contacts in the local community who help us ensure that our adventures are active and involving.”
