That sense of adventure to discover the world is at the very heart of Jules Verne. Our innovative small group escorted tours offer authentic travel with a twist for people who love to see and explore the world. Each of our guided tours are packed with special touches and little extras, which provide you with the chance to gain a different and deeper understanding of each destination. On top of this, our expert guides will show you the true character of their country and take you beyond the norm whether your chosen destination is closer to home or far-flung.
Covering a variety of destinations in Africa, the Far East, South East Asia, Indian Subcontinent, Middle East, Europe, North America, South America and Central America, our small group guided tours aim to inspire travellers and show more than just the classic, first-time sites.
Beginning in 1978 with one simple idea - to operate a train from London to Peking (Beijing) and thence to Hong Kong – Jules Verne has continued to grow in both destinations and tours offered. Today the range of product encompasses river, coastal and barge cruises, memorable rail journeys, expeditions, hidden treasures, unforgettable Great Journeys, and classic itineraries, all created with a particular focus on history, art and culture or wildlife. Our guided group tours cover the conventional and the unexpected, across a variety of themes and each with special features and interests included – and all are underpinned by quality and value for money. To enhance the experience for Jules Verne travellers, we arrange and include exclusive and memorable special events, which illuminate the local culture and the country you are visiting.
We believe that travelling as part of a small group allows you to enjoy a more intimate and sociable atmosphere, benefit from more personal attention from the guides and delve into your destination in more detail, getting closer to the places visited and experiencing local life in a personal and informal setting.
Like you, we are inspired and have converted our passion for travel and years of expertise to create the best possible experiences. Each of our itineraries have been carefully matched our customers’ interests and tastes. Our escorted holidays combine unique travel arrangements with cultural sightseeing, relaxing excursions, special events, comfortable accommodation and – in the case of several tours – awe-inspiring wildlife encounters. We have over 40 years’ experience of creating extraordinary adventures, pioneering voyages and inspirational journeys worldwide. We invest in our Personal Travel Experts who have genuine first-hand knowledge of our tours and destinations, and who are there to offer you guidance.
Although no single supplement is offered on a range of destinations and dates, many travellers prefer to join a solo group departure comprising only single travellers and accompanied by a UK or local tour manager. Early booking is recommended and it’s never too early to book with our 100% price guarantee, it means your tour price is fixed when you commit and you won’t ever pay more, even if our costs increase afterwards.
