Our trips are all about people; about active engagement and genuine connection between travelers and locals; about understanding along with adventure.

We craft culturally immersive journeys from the ground up to provide clients unsurpassed access into the local culture. Along the way, we share insights, conversation, food and laughter with hosts and invited guests such as: artists and curators, headmasters and healers, farmers and chefs, weavers and winemakers, musicians and mask-makers, archaeologists and anthropologists.

Simply stated, our mission is to change the way people travel; to make travel more actively engaged, more connected and more reciprocal for both the traveler and for the local communities with which we come into contact and that so generously enrich our understanding of the world.

These qualities – imagination, integrity and impact – are what have attracted half a dozen renowned educational institutions and award-winning tour operators to ask Culture Xplorers to craft tailor-made journeys for their world travelers, members and alumni. Amongst our partners and collaborators:
