Around the World in 80 Trips

See the world for less

Α collection of great journeys dedicated to cover the entire planet and see pretty much everything you can in, well, about 80 trips (perhaps a bit more).

Highlights

Enjoy the freedom of small group trips, immerse deep into local culture, live unique and amazing experiences. With personal research from seasoned travellers.

All programmes are flexible and indicative, so everything can be completely customised to suit your own particular interests, budget, travel style and length.

We want to make great trips, not great profits. We use local resources, offer transparent prices, charge the minimum possible, and give back to the community.

Travel Further

These trips are designed to cover the entire planet in the best and most comprehensive way possible. The number 80 is mostly indicative and used for emphasis, as in practice the number may vary, depending on the interests and abilities of each individual traveller.

We are searching for the uniqueness of each destination, like beaches in the Caribbean, monuments in Rome, monasteries in Tibet, bazaars in the Middle East, safaris in Africa. We are searching for the modern aspect of each destination as well, not only for the historic or ancient, including the lifestyle and daily lives of the local people. We are searching for an integrated experience, including elements of natural, archaeological, folkloric and sociological interest. We are searching for the actual reality, not just the tourist showcase, including the rich and the poor, the old and the modern, the beautiful and the ugly.

Estimated Prices

Youth Pack

Hostel/Guesthouse, Local Transport


For the young at heart or those that really want to stretch their budget to the maximum possible, willing to let go of a few modern luxuries. The itinerary will be the shortest possible.

Prices usually include basic accommodation in guesthouses or hostels (sometimes with shared toilet facilities), and the cheapest local transport available (like bus or train).

This option is only available in countries where the local standards are sufficient enough, and travel safety is not an issue.

Balanced Pack

AirBnB/3* hotel, rental vehicle, internal flights


The most convenient option, where we are looking for the most value for money way of exploring a destination to the fullest, while granting the traveller the freedom of choice.

Prices usually include midrange accommodation (AirBnB, boutique 3* hotels), rental vehicle (with driver or self drive), and internal flights. A local guide or accommodation upgrade may also be arranged at additional cost.

This option usually does not include entrance fees, meals, or special activities, so that each traveller can decide on his/her own.

Luxury Pack

4*/5* resort, guided tour


The most relaxed option, for those that prefer a more laid back approach and to enjoy the destination on a private guided tour, with a few prepaid extras on the side. Here, comfort is the key.

Prices usually include upmarket accommodation (4* or 5* hotels), rental vehicle and local guide. An escort guide may also be arranged at additional cost.

This option usually includes the most important entrance fees and special activities, and may even be offered as half or full board.

Extensions, Special Activities, Further Ideas


For people who want more, there are many possible additions to each core programme.

Extensions are nearby destinations of a broader region that can be easily combined into a single trip, for those with extra time.

Special Activities are targeted to travellers with special interests, such as hiking, or journeys to remote areas off the beaten track.

Further Ideas are destinations from other trips, that may be combined into this one, for people that want to mix it all.

Additional Notes

International costs, assumptions


In this section some final or important notes are being presented, including price calculation assumptions for the tour costs, like currency exchange ratio or number of travellers.

In addition, some indicative non-tour specific costs are given, which usually depend of the point of departure of each traveller, such as international flights, insurance or visa costs.

Always remember that everything in our trips is customisable. You select the length of the itinerary, the period of travel, the sights you want to see, the activities you want to experience, the accommodation type or means of transport you prefer, whether you’d like a guide or not, and we create a unique mix just for you!
