About Us

Here at Discover the World, we champion the fight against the bland and predictable. We know that our clients are passionate and discerning travellers looking for authentic, exciting and meaningful experiences on holiday.

When we travel in a meaningful way, we gain a greater perspective on the world, develop greater empathy for people outside of our immediate circle and are left fuelled with a curiosity to understand more about cultures we have not yet experienced.

Inspiration, insight and innovation spearhead our approach to creating unique itineraries for all of our clients. We only feature destinations that we are genuinely passionate about – and have first-hand, in-depth knowledge of. Whilst we will recommend our favourite, tried-and-tested hotels and suggest itineraries that reveal the magic of a destination, any itinerary you see online can be completely tailored to suit you.

Our pillars of Sustainable Travel logo dtw pillars of sustainable travel logo

As passionate travellers, we are committed to finding and implementing maintainable strategies that; protect fragile landscapes, minimise our carbon footprint, celebrate unique cultures and benefit local people. We understand that travelling is a privilege and we believe responsible travel is about finding the right balance between minimising our impact on the environment while never losing the ability to open minds through new experiences and interaction with cultures different from our own. Not only have our collective travel experiences given us a deep appreciation for the beautiful world we live in, but also the innate desire to protect it.
