Why Discovery Tours? What sets us apart from other tour companies.
Travelling in a small group has many benefits – the possibility for more intimate accommodation and restaurants, the ability to have flexible itineraries and make spontaneous stops, and getting to know others on the tour. You feel less intrusive and more like a traveller than a tourist.
Our tours are leisurely yet comprehensive. We won’t take you to an area and suggest costly “optional” activities to make your tour complete – we’ve already included them plus much more. Dollar for dollar we offer exceptional value.
We slow it down staying 2 or 3 nights in most locations giving you a better sense of the area. Morning starts are rarely before 9:00, and we finish in time for you to relax or strike out on your own. We promise that you will see and experience much, but not return home exhausted.
This is where we really step it up a notch. We carefully design our own itineraries balancing local culture, history and nature – staying in cities, rural areas, on quiet beaches and in national parks. We visit the “must-see” tourist attractions and then take you off the regular tourist beat to see lesser-known sites and meet with the local people.
We make it easy and affordable
Our tours to Cuba, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Colombia are leisurely but comprehensive resulting in tremendous value. Unlike other companies, we don’t just take you to an area and “suggest” what you should see or do there. You won’t be handed a list of “optional” tours you need to consider (and pay for locally) to “fill out” the tour because we’ve already included many interesting and quirky stops in the original price. Dollar for dollar, we offer incredible value and we encourage you to compare us to other tour companies.
