How We Travel Company Overview

Offering extraordinary small-group and private cultural tours since 1998.


Original World offers in-depth special interest small group and custom, private tours. Our itineraries are extensively researched and enhanced with our personal local relationships. While we do visit all the highlights of a tour’s region, we strive to create unique experiences that are authentic and personal.

Original World tours strike a balance between cultural immersion, comfort and value. Most tours use four and five star hotels and, where available, locally-owned and heritage properties such as converted palaces, forts, guesthouses and private mansions. Of course in the remote regions such as the northeastern tribal India, hotels will be basic. All hotels selected have attached western bathrooms, are clean and serve “safe” food.

Both western and local guides are employed. All are college educated and experts in their specialty or region.

Small Group Tours

Our small group tours (6-16 people) are ideal for people who enjoy the camaraderie of likeminded travelers while exploring a region in depth. Our small group size enables us to go into off-the-path places and encounter locals in intimate settings to foster a genuine cultural exchange.

Private, Custom Tours

Our private custom tours are ideal for couples, families and groups of friends who want to experience a region in a completely personalized and flexible way. We will work with you to craft an itinerary that matches your vision for your trip. You will have all of the support of a group tour, with the flexibility to make your exact travel dreams come true.

Private, Custom Group Tours

We offer private custom group tours to organisations and businesses. Group size is up to you and your organization facilitator/leader is complimentary. Please call to discuss.
