Setting the standard for custom-designed private travel, Heritage Tours is recognized industry-wide for its creativity, values and pioneering approach to bespoke travel, and was named World’s Best #3 Tour Operator by Travel + Leisure.

They were one of the very first to offer only private custom-designed travel and to this day, they pride themselves on offering absolutely unique and special experiences. And yet, it’s not what they offer that they are most proud of, but how they offer it – with heart, passion and real care attention for each and every client.

Always one step ahead, Heritage Tours has a deep well of knowledge, personal connections worldwide, honest opinions to share and discerning judgment.
