Trafalgar




At Trafalgar, we passionately believe in the power of travel to broaden the mind and build bridges between people. By sharing with you the hidden places not mentioned in guidebooks, the local people you wouldn't otherwise meet and the traditions you may not have experienced by yourself, we ensure that you get the 'insider' view: an authentic and enhanced experience you simply could not have had on your own.

It is this dedication to taking our guests beyond the obvious sights that has helped us grow over the past 65 years into one of the most trusted and successful international guided vacation companies in the world. From Europe to the US, from South America to the South Pacific, we pride ourselves on uncovering the hidden gems, cultural highlights and not-to-be-missed attractions of the places you visit. We'll help you delve deep into the heart of off-the-beaten-track cities and towns and capture the true essence of each new destination. You'll benefit from having an expert Travel Director at the helm, supported by charismatic Local Guides along the way, ready to share their knowledge with you and your new-found friends.
