extraordinary cultures

meet the locals



“I am able to tell you that without exception, all the people I talked to wished they had had a trip as organised as mine was”

Our individualisation and specialist knowledge mean that we can design journeys on foot, on horseback or by boat (as well as by vehicle or light aircraft for longer distances) which really penetrate a place.

Our approach allows our clients to witness a culture and interact with people and their way of life in a very personal way. We use local guides and locally owned accommodation wherever possible but also know when that extra bit of comfort or luxury is available or required.

Most importantly, personal experience means that we can manage every client’s expectations over exactly what to expect. Morning prayer in a remote monastery in the Himalayas, private access to a Mayan site or a trek to inaccessible villages in the Andes … all deliver an experience which is far from the mere selection of a flight and a hotel.

It is all very far from the mainstream but without necessarily compromising on comfort. That is what c+l is about.

Ancient ruins in jungle settings. Markets and colonial architecture.
