The concept of the ‘Secrets’ collection germinated in response to a growing number of our travellers who expressed a wish to revisit their favourite countries. Rather than tread over old ground we colluded with our local representatives to identify areas, towns and sights of the country that were relatively unexplored but equally exciting as the better-known parts. This has proved so successful that the number of destinations and itineraries has grown in a short space of time. There may indeed be some well-known sights visited en route but, with the skill of the local guides, we have endeavoured to present them from a different angle while also offering fresh and different excursion programmes. We hope that you too will be inspired by these tours and we look forward to welcoming you in the near future.
