Our Story

Specialising in luxury tailor-made travel to the Indian Subcontinent, South East Asia and the Far East, Ampersand create journeys that fully engage the senses and constantly surprise and delight. We handcraft holidays for individuals and small groups, regularly testing everything we offer to ensure that every second of each itinerary is as close to perfection as possible.

With over 15 years of experience, we understand that everyone is unique – one person’s heaven can be another person’s hell. We place great emphasis on getting to know our clients and matching them with the perfect mix of experiences and hotels. From cultural tours of central India to gastronomic adventures dipping into the colourful markets of South East Asia, we can help you get under the skin of your destination and reveal its beauty in touching and unforgettable ways.
