Introducing Ampersand's 7 Unusual Escorted Journeys

Introducing Ampersand's 7 Unusual Escorted Journeys

The world may be conquered, but enough secrets remain for us to whisk you off on a magical carpet ride, and reveal some of the rare, unexplored experiences that the globe has to offer. We have carefully curated Ampersand’s 7 Unusual Escorted Journeys, to offer a small group of like-minded Ampersand clients the opportunity to experience a place, people or natural phenomenon under the chaperone of an expert, who can bring it even more vividly to life.

Packed with special touches and extraordinary private access experiences, these journeys offer the conviviality of a group tour, whilst retaining some of the independence and flexibility of a private trip; perfect for those who would not ordinarily consider travelling with others. And just as the tours are a varied selection, so are the guides themselves…

Each of our charming, diverse and distinctly different guides will show you the true character of each destination and take you beyond the norm, whether you find yourself in a luxury tent in the northern most reaches of India, a family-run farmhouse in South Africa’s world-class Winelands, a Geoffrey Bawa architectural masterpiece on the palm-fringed coast of Sri Lanka, or a medieval castle in one of Ireland’s most picturesque regions.

Client Testimonials

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.

Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!

Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10
