The Legend of Alexander the Great – Turkey
Accompanied by expert guides and historians, travellers will explore the myths and stories that surround Alexander the Great (Alexander III of Macedon) on this 10-day itinerary to Turkey. Follow in the footsteps of his army, starting at Granicus, heading south along the Ionian Coast, and ending in Kuşadasi, as well as spending time in Istanbul. In search of the end of the world, Alexander battled the Persians after subduing the rebellious Greeks. As a result, he built one of the largest empires of the ancient world and earned a place in history as a legend.
In this journey through time, travellers will learn more about Alexander’s personality and the people who lived in his tumultuous world. During this tour, they will explore one of the seven wonders of the world, trace his voyage on the Dardanelles Strait, and explore ruins in Alexander’s metropolis of Militus, as well as beautiful temples at Assos, Ephesus, and Priene. Archaeology and culture are intertwined for a legendary luxury travel experience.
The itinerary includes many pinch-me moments such as a private tour of Istanbul, a visit through the ruins of Troy, secret rooftop views of the Grand Bazaar à la James Bond, and a private Bosphorus cruise exploring the majestic strait that runs through Istanbul, linking Europe and Asia.
The cost of the trip is £5,995pp for 10 days, excluding flights.

The Legend of the Roman Empire – Italy
The mighty Roman Empire lasted over a thousand years and has left an indelible imprint on today’s modern society. This trip takes guests right to the empire’s core in Rome, where visitors will not only see their signature creations but delve deeper into the myths and legends of its founding, citizens and the renowned Caesars. From Rome, clients will travel south to the Amalfi Coast to explore the Roman legacies before finishing the trip on the enchanting island of Capri, once the emperors’ playground.
The journey will cast a light on many legends of one of the world’s greatest empires through visits to the Colosseum, Pompeii, Positano – also known as the jewel in the Amalfi Coast’s crown – and the former summer residence of the Caesars: Capri.
Often overlooked, guests will visit the ruins of Herculaneum, a worthy visit to give explorers an insight into how a wealthy and prosperous Roman town might have looked like and operated.
The cost of the trip is £5,250pp for 12 days, excluding flights.

The Legend of Hindu Priest, Dang Hyang Nirartha – Indonesia
In the sixteenth century, according to legend, Hindu priest and traveller Dang Hyang Nirartha set off from Java on a perilous boat journey to Bali – then regarded as the island of the gods. He then set to work reinforcing Balinese Hinduism and teaching it to locals across the island, reshaping the way they practised Hinduism in day-to-day village life. With his legacy still burning bright across Bali, guests will not only trace Dang Hyang Nirartha’s footsteps, spying some of the many temples he either built or has since been honoured by but explore some of the island’s other wonders too.
Some memorable experiences included in the itinerary are visits to the Melanting, Tanah Lot, and Uluwatu Temple, witnessing a traditional Balinese barong dance and blessing ceremony in Ubud and walking through the spectacular rice terraces of Jatiluwih.
True spiritualists will enjoy strolling around the bathing pools, ponds, fountains and tropical gardens of Tirta Gangga Water Palace, a former pleasure retreat for Indonesian royals.

The Myths and Legends of the Old West – USA
The Great American West is one of Earth’s most enchanting wildernesses. Its scenery is some of the finest in the USA – think rocky outcrops as high as skyscrapers, rolling prairie, and sweeping grasslands as far as the eye can see – but it’s landscape travellers know little about, apart from the romanticism of the Wild West. This exclusive itinerary will immerse clients into cowboy culture with a live-in ranch experience. To really understand this enigmatic region, we need to learn about it from those who know it best. Native Americans have been guardians of this land for thousands of years and guests will visit some of their most sacred spots while understanding their heritage from their own Native American guide.
This trip of a lifetime includes standout experiences such as exploring Black Hills National Park – a region that’s soaked in Native American folklore – lapping up the spiritual energy of Sedona, with a part-Cherokee guide, and exploring the Secret Canyon which only Native Americans know about.
The trip is summarised with a soar over the Grand Canyon on a once-in-a-lifetime helicopter flight – the only way to see the icon’s magnitude in all its glory.
The cost of the trip is £18,995pp for 14 days, excluding flights.
