Travel around the world on inspiring and individual holidays, knowing that your holiday is locally sourced from responsible tour operators in your chosen destination. If you want to trek in Nepal, why not go with a company run by Sherpas? If you want to experience a walking safari on the plains of the Serengeti then book direct with the Masai and let them share their local knowledge and insights with you. 

PureTravel has compiled a database of local tour operators, all based in the countries in which they offer their services. There are over 1,000 itineraries to browse, chosen by the operators themselves as great trips to their countries. If you would like more details on any of the tours, you can e-mail the operators direct to get the latest information, updates and prices. They are the experts, living in the country you wish to visit and with the knowledge to adapt their products to match your interests and budget.

PureTravel is free to these small, specialist operators, giving them an opportunity to be found on the internet and to promote their specialist products to travellers worldwide.

In our Guides you will find a wealth of information to help you research and plan your trip, with background on the country, main highlights and suggested itineraries.
