Ampersand's Unusual Escorted Journeys

Let us take you on a journey… A journey like no other, one that will wow your friends around the dinner-party table and leave you with astonishing memories to last a lifetime. We have carefully selected seven incredible destinations, flicked through our ‘Black Book’ of exceptional contacts to source the most charismatic expert guides, and present to you Ampersand’s Unusual Escorted Journeys.

A selection of group tours for people who would not ordinarily consider travelling with others, you will join a small group of like-minded Ampersand clients who are accustomed to the very best. Let us guide you around some of our favourite destinations, under the chaperone of our charming, diverse and distinctly different guides.

We think an expert’s insight is all too vital, which is why each of our escorted journeys, filled with extraordinary private access experiences, have been designed with our selected experts in mind. After all, what better way to explore a destination than in the company of someone who knows the lie of the land and can delve beneath the surface to bring it all vividly to life?

Just as the experts are a varied group, so are the journeys themselves. Some broaden the mind, and some are all about immersion in different cultures…
