Beyond expectations. I had Simon as my tour guile. He was very knowledgeable, passionate and overall a great champ to talk to. Matt was our bus driver, great sense of humor and knows the best pubs and local happenings. I was hoping for a good time and instead had a memoriable experiences that will last a lifetime

Safehands Travel organised a bespoke adventure to Rajasthan for me.

Kush (my guide) and the driver were wonderful travelling companions, I felt very safe which is so important for a solo female traveller. The driver skilfully negotiated some difficult roads occasionally with great care and professionalism.

Wonderful hotels chosen with care and very appropriate to my preferred taste.

I experience amazing restaurants away from the hotels, in the full confidence that Kush would choose well.

Travelled to villages off the beaten track, all adding to the wonderful experience of Rajasthan. From a camel ride across the desert to see the sunset to the magnificent Mehrangarh Fort, an amazing experience I will never forget.

Kush is a great guide and made my adventure complete with his knowledge, great sense of humour and patience. His enthusiasm and love for India and the desire to share his knowledge with others is endless.

Thank you to Rohit and all at Safehands for making my adventure so easy and enjoyable. Great care and attention were taken with the details of the journey with quick response to any questions. Fantastic service from first booking to the end of my journey.

Definitely will return to India and put myself again in the exceptionally capable hands of Rohit and his team, confident in the knowledge that it will be organised personally for me with the greatest of care, professionalism and attention to detail.

We did a 12 day comprehensive custom tour of Ladakh. We had great time. The trip was well organised and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The guide was excellent and the driver was good especially in the roads in remote areas. Safe Hands and Rohit were available when we needed them.

We spent three weeks touring Nepal and India. We can really recommend Safhands Travel and especially Mr. Rohit. The tour and itinerary suggested by Rohit was excellent. The service received by the Safehands representatives, welcomers, drivers and guides was first class. We will treasure our memories of this holiday. Thank you Rohit.

    About Expat Explore

    Since 2005, Expat Explore has been giving travelers once-in-a-lifetime experiences at budget friendly prices and at the highest quality possible. What first began as a few friends’ mutual passion for adventure has grown into 31 leaders guiding thousands of travelers around the world.

    What Makes Expat Explore Stand Out?

    • Multi-country itineraries
    • Great value
    • Over 50 tour programs
    • Guaranteed departures (won’t cancel last minute if there aren’t enough people signed up)
    • Price Beat Promise
     

    Expat Explore is all about providing the highest quality travel experience at accessible prices. They operate coach tours, which include expert guided tours and activities along the way. Young, energetic tour leaders accompany every trip, keeping spirits high and making your trip as engaging and enjoyable as possible. They take a lot of pride in their affordable prices - in fact, if you find the same tour online for a lower price, they’ll beat it!

    Who Travels With Expat Explore?

    • Ages 28-35
    • Budget travelers

    While all ages are welcome on their tours, they are geared toward the younger demographic (the average age is 28-35). Groups tend to be large, so be prepared for that. (A typical group size will be 48 people).  Trips are on the more inexpensive end, which means some details such as transfers and airfare are not included. Tours with Expat Explore are not physically demanding - but make sure you pack sneakers since walking tours are a typical part of the itinerary.

    Top Destinations

    • Europe
    • Middle East & Africa
    • USA & Canada
    • Southeast Asia

    Expat Explore tours began specializing in the UK and England, but over time they’ve expanded to offer trips around the world. Expect a balance between exploring the highlights and lesser-known places of each destination.

    Expat Explore Travel Style

    While not the most luxurious nor stylish, Expat Explore does well on catering to affordability and fun. Private coaches are generally used for transportation - equipped with reclining chairs, on-board toilets, air conditioning, and an entertainment system.

    Accommodations sit in the 3 to 4 star range with ensuite bathrooms. Some trip itineraries have free days for you to explore on your own. It should be noted that transportation and meals are not included on those days.

    Why Travel With Expat Explore?

    For a unique and fun travel experience, Expat Explore is a great option. Especially if you’re a social person looking for a high energy tour, with a lot of fun activities to take part in along the way. Their experienced tour leaders are there to make your trip an unforgettable one.
