Our individualisation and specialist knowledge mean that we can design luxury tailor-made holidays and 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.

Our holidays are tailor-made and are all very far from the mainstream but without necessarily compromising on comfort. That is what c+l is about.

luxury holiday Guatemala

Nothing can prepare you for the ruins of Angkor. With a good private guide you can explore extensively. More recent history and culture is equally fascinating with both Phnom Penh and the Mekong often overlooked. Best visited November through April.

exclusive tailor-made holiday to Japan


Japan is a place of ancient gods and customs, but is also the cutting edge of cool modernity. You can catch sight of a farmer tending his paddy field, then turn the corner and find yourself next to a neon-festooned electronic games parlour in the suburb of a sprawling metropolis.
