Step 1 Choose a Trip

Each of our trips is designed around countries with significant historical, social, and political themes relevant today. Choose a trip and topic that interests you to begin.

Step 2 Reserve your spot

Once you’ve chosen the trip and the travel dates, simply reserve your spot with a 10% deposit

Step 3 Look out for your trip 'Confirmation'

Your trip is officially “confirmed” for departure once six or more people reserve a spot. As soon as the trip is confirmed, we will provide you with full trip details. Next, it’s over to you to handle a few important details, including booking your flight tickets, obtaining travel insurance, and checking if there are any travel or visa requirements you need to comply with.

Step 4 Enjoy the pre-trip video series

Once your trip is confirmed, you’ll gain access to the pre-trip video series prepared by our historians and experts. The series includes 15 to 20 video lectures, each addressing a specific topic relevant to our theme. We always begin with a comprehensive overview session that introduces the key topics and questions the experts will explore, along with the main takeaways. Then, each lecture delves deeper into a specific topic. With each episode, you’ll see the bigger picture and understand the various layers that shape or influence the culture and history of the region.

Step 5 Connect with your group

The video lectures are delivered to your group through our e-learning and community platform. This platform provides an amazing space to engage with the content and your fellow travellers by starting conversations, asking questions, and learning a bit more about the people you’ll be travelling with.

Step 6 Pay the balance

Once the trip is fully confirmed, we will kindly request that you pay the remaining balance. In the rare event that we are unable to confirm your group within 30 days before your travel date, we will refund your deposit or offer alternative dates for your journey.

Step 7 Meet your ride

Once you touchdown, we’ll be waiting to pick you up and take you to the hotel to check-in and meet your group mates.

Change of plans?

We get that plans can change and the unexpected sometimes happens! But, no need to worry, you can cancel up to 60 days before your trip starts at no cost! If your cancellation comes after this period then we might need to charge a fraction of the price to cover for the costs incurred with your booking. You can find here our detailed cancellation policy.
