GROUP TOURS with our sister company Origin Travel

Exclusive adventures to exotic destinations on roads less travelled.


I have spent many years travelling independently and using my own form of transport

to places that people have only read about in books or seen in movies.

Inspired by my photos and travel stories, some of our clients wanted to join me

and create their own travel memories.


In 2011 we started with a 14 day journey through Uzbekistan and from there

Origin Travel was born.  

Our small band of travellers has grown and now people ask on the

last day of their tour "Where to next?"  


We don't like "add-ons" so our prices are fully inclusive of economy class airfares

 taxes, tipping, comfortable and central  3 /4  * boutique accommodation  

touring, entry fees, local expert guides, most meals and visas if required.  

Of course if you want comfort, we can add a business or first class option.  

We do the all work, you just pack and get excited. 


Some of the destinations we visit are Africa, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan, Guatemala and Belize, Mexico and Cuba, South America, Georgia and Armenia, North and South India and our most popular Beijing to St.Petersburg including the Naadam festival in Mongolia.  


If you love soft adventure without the hassle, join us.

Live like a local, love like an adventurer!

An Indian experience in style - Mumbai to Delhi - 11 February - 06 March 2020 - Limited to 14 guests
Hosted by Caroline Davis
An all inclusive journey of soft adventure visiting Mumbai, Varanasi, Delhi, Agra, Ranthambore, Jaipur, Bikaner, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur and Udaipur.  Our accommodation is a mixture of palaces, old forts and superb accommodation.  Our days will be filled with adventures that include dancing , eating, cooking, tiger spotting and people watching.  The tour has a fine balance of not too many temples, not too much shopping, plenty of culture and opportunities to learn about the sub-continent.  Our point of difference is seeing the Taj Mahal by full moon, witnessing the rituals of the devotees in Varanasi and the evening ceremony called Ganga Aarti.  We go on safari for Tiger at the world famous Ranthambore National Park, visit the Amber Fort in the pink city of Jaipur, the Golden Fort in Jaislamer and dancing under the stars at an exclusive desert camp.  Rhonda first visited India in 2015 and is hankering to share this wonder of the world with you.
Expressions of Interest for Georgia and Armenia - May 2020 -  Limited to 12 guests
Hosted by Rhonda Paice
Two spellbinding countries which sit on the crossroads between east and west, flanked by two seas and soaring mountains.  This area is a cultural mosaic combining different faiths and traditions. Sleepy villages perched on hilltops, surrounded by ancient vineyards, watch towers guarding twisty roads, teahouses sitting along side  wine bars of the Nouveau riche.  This area is just opening up to tourism and we want to be first on the ground before it is the "go to" destination.
