Activities

We know there’s more to a destination than tourist attractions and iconic landmarks, although we’ve no qualms if you ponder those too. Travel is about exploring and being inspired by your surroundings. It’s about soaking up a city’s true character or seeking out hidden gems.

What guidebooks can’t tell you, local people can. We seek out the very best travel activities for you, as selected by our regional ambassadors – together, we’re passionate about finding unique and authentic local experiences to make your travel adventure an amazing one.

What you can expect from our activities

There’ll be no typical bus tours here, just real time adventure and ways to fully appreciate a new destination.

You won’t need to pack everything in and you can do as little or as much as you’d like, to create your own itinerary and make the most of that precious holiday time. Needless to say, your time will be well spent wherever you decide to travel.

What type of activities do we offer?

The beauty of travel is that no two countries or destinations are the same. It’s finding these quirks and unique activities that is the fun part.

For the thrill seekers, travel activities can include Kayaking, Rafting and Wilderness Camping in Sri Lanka, to a Scottish Basking Shark Adventure in Edinburgh or enjoying Abseiling and Empress Falls Canyon in Sydney.

Travel activities for adults include a whole host of once in a lifetime food and drink adventures, from experiencing the authentic daily routine of the farm, at Farm to Fable in Sri Lanka, to the Screw It Wine Tour in Cape Town, or the Whiskey Making Adventure in Edinburgh.

In this day and age, it’s all about capturing the moment. Our activities in Sydney will allow you to do just that – from The Urban Observer Photography Tour, to Sydney Street Photography and Smart Phone Photography Workshops, not a moment of action need be missed. Capture the best sights and views to show off to friends and family once you’re home.

If nature and wildlife is your thing, why not visit the Honey Bee Spa in Cape Town? Or experience the beauty of Wildlife at Chinnar, or African Animal Encounters in South Africa.

Of course, our travel activities are packed with options for families too – be it Painting Masks in Sri Lanka or Whale Watching in Capetown, we’ve got you covered.
