A message from Managing Director Chris Boycott

From its humble beginnings in 1987, Adventures Abroad's Private & Custom Tours Program has since become an industry-leader and the number one choice for thousands of discerning travellers around the world. Our global operation provides fun, informative travel options that can be customized to suit the exact needs and wants of our valued clientele and is built on the founding principles that all travel alternatives offered by Adventures Abroad adhere to: a dedication to provide a safe, cost-effective and unique tour experience; a flexibility that facilitates adaptation of our strategies and practices as per the preference of clients; an insistence on an experienced and reliable staff who remain constantly available to meet client needs; and a resolute commitment to quality in every facet of our tours.

Tell us where your passion lies and we'll work with you to combine it with education and worldwide travel for the adventure of a lifetime!


What sets Private & Custom Tours apart?

Private & Custom Tours by Adventures Abroad prides itself in offering a wholly unique travel option whose inception was spurred by the desire to meet and then exceed the expectations of clients. While other companies offer no real alternative to their inflexible, pre-packaged tours, we empower our clients to dictate the exact terms of their tours by giving them the opportunity to have a say in the intricate details.

By way of example, if you are a member of a group with a particular interest in art, photography, or archaeology, we work with you to find the most desirable countries, cities and even sites to visit; the end result being your very own customized itinerary that encompasses all the places and attractions that you might be dreaming of, and much more!

Whatever your tastes, hobbies, or passions, our Private & Custom Tours department helps you blend it with the exciting world of global travel for a tour experience that you'll never forget.
