World Journeys Hosted Travel

Group travel offers a chance to share the trip of a lifetime. Travel is about much more than just ticking off the sights on the well-trodden tourist trail. It’s about experiencing new cultures, savoring local cuisine, hearing new melodies and meeting fascinating people. An incredible world is out there to be explored, and World Journeys has put together a range of hosted tours with that in mind.

Travelling to some of the world’s most exciting, challenging and exotic countries is all the more achievable in a small group of like-minded people . People love the conviviality of group travel; there’s company if desired, but also time to explore alone. Every person brings something to the mix.

With a maximum group size of 18, all tours are guaranteed to depart, so travellers can book with confidence. If you have travelled on one of our journeys before, we would like to welcome you back with an additional saving of $400 per couple (or $200 per person). Your world awaits…

World Journeys Hosts

Our passionate, experienced hosts add to the “personality” of our small group journeys. We select them because they are real ‘people people’, often with a particular passion for the history, cuisine, arts and culture of the destination. Th e host will make sure everything runs smoothly, working with local guides who delight in sharing their in-depth knowledge with visitors. Your host will also take care of tipping on the group’s behalf to ensure a hassle free journey.

Your Fellow Travellers

One of the best things about travel is meeting and sharing incredible experiences with other like-minded people. To ensure a more personal experience we limit group numbers to no more than 18 people. We’ve seen lasting friendships develop on tour, with new friends choosing to travel together again in subsequent years.

Travelling Solo on Best of the Med or Castro’s Cuba? 

We welcome solo travel on our journeys, as indeed one of the highlights is the company of your fellow travellers. On Best of the Med or Castro’s Cuba, you are able to book your own private room or cabin, but if you would like to share with another traveller of the same gender and pay the share twin price, we offer a Travelling Solo program. You must book and pay your deposit at least six months before the tour departure to qualify.

World Journeys Special Experiences

For every itinerary, we have included some special experiences that we’ve personally designed to immerse you in the local culture whether it be dining with a local family, an exclusive sightseeing tour or a cooking class. They are all designed to create lasting memories.

Free time to explore

Our itineraries are full of ‘bucket list’ sights and activities but we have ensured there is still some time at leisure for you to explore on your own, simply relax in your hotel or dine in restaurants of your choice.

How we get around

Our journeys will often take you to exotic locations, or somewhat off the beaten track. We have carefully selected vehicles suited to each environment, allowing the highest standard of comfort, whether on luxury ocean liners or charming river cruisers, in air-conditioned coaches, or even the occasional helicopter or seaplane.

Plenty of inclusions

We include all accommodation with private facilities (except on some rail journeys and in very remote areas where only shared facilities are available). We include most meals, which are often at our favourite restaurants. Sightseeing with local English speaking guides is included while touring, as are entrance fees. However, cruise shore excursions and occasional optional activities are not included, as we feel it is a personal decision as to what, and how much, you wish to do.

First class accommodation with local flavour

Where possible, we use smaller boutique hotels with a minimum of 4 stars in the best locations. Our cruises usually offer three choices of cabin – Inside (no window), Outside (window or porthole), and Balcony (doors opening on to a private balcony).

Your documents

To make sure you always know what you’re doing and where you’re going on your journey, you will be sent beautifully prepared travel documents. These documents detail your day-by-day itinerary and include everything you need to have a hassle free journey. You will receive these in a travel wallet along with a World Journeys luggage tag. World Journeys travel documents are a wonderful memento of your journey.

Ask us about flights from your home town

International flights are not included in these journeys but we are able to offer competitive flight quotes, just ask your friendly travel designer or travel professional.
