Outstanding trip! The team at Exeter really listened and arranged a wonderful itinerary for me and my sister that aligned perfectly with our interests. Very responsive during all the planning and during our visit. Drivers each day were very professional, punctual and courteous, even making a special effort for us to capture lots of photo opportunities. Very thoughtful. Our Moscow guide Elena was superb – very knowledgeable and a true delight She timed our visits each day to avoid lines and maximize our time. While we very much enjoyed everything we saw, I think it is the wonderful people we met along the way that we'll remember for years to come. Thank you Exeter for arranging such a personalized and truly extraordinary experience!

The only way to experience St Petersburg is with Exeter International. Our guide Albina was fantastic – so much knowledge and a passion for her job. While the itinerary seemed daunting [Albina] managed to keep our interest and attention, but remained flexible to our whims. We would have missed so much if we had tried to explore independently – indeed, in a museum as intimidating as The Hermitage her guidance is crucial – and of course Albina made sure we jumped the queues, which is a big bonus in this city! I totally fell in love with St Petersburg – I will be back and would love to spend another couple of days guided by Albina!

Exeter International planned one of the best trips I've ever been on - it was THE best in terms of a seamless, extraordinary itinerary. We had creative and insightful guides, experienced fascinating history without waiting in any lines, and received fabulous recommendations on dining and sightseeing when we had down time. Exeter had actually arranged a tour of the Terazin Concentration Camp with a Holocaust survivor who had been in that very camp - it made our trip unforgettable and I will never forget the kindness or forgiveness that sweet Ava portrayed while she shared her incredible story with us. If you're looking for a once in a lifetime experience in Western Europe, there is no better option than Exeter.

I´ve learned so much about Peruvian culture and history. One of the best experiences was meeting all the people, like the Ecoamazonia lodge guide Elmer, Sol in Cusco!.

About Exeter International

Founded in 1992, Exeter excels at providing unique, unusual, and exclusive experiences.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

Travel experts help design classic trips in Europe, personalized to your travel style and interests.

If you have a niche interest that you want to focus on during your travel, they are a great place to start.

Who Travel With Them?

They trips are well suited to older travelers seeking a relaxed and comfortable yet experiential, cultural, and authentic experience. They are less about active travel and more about cultural experiences such as going backstage at the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow or a private winery tour in Croatia.
