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.

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!

"This Peru travel agency planned and booked a custom trip for me and my wife to Peru in October 2015. The trip included a short stay in Lima, and almost a week in the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Cusco. Their service was outstanding. The planning for the trip was perfect, and we relied entirely on them as we had not been to Peru before. They also went beyond the call of duty by getting a reservation at a good hotel in Lima even though there was a huge convention of the world bank in town at the time. They persisted until they found a cancellation. they even booked two good restaurants for us in Lima. The guides they provided were also excellent, including one who was truly outstanding.

I never would have located this company except through Zicasso. Two years ago we made a trip to Brazil and we looked and looked for a travel agency of this kind and never did find one. I would highly recommend using Zicasso to find the appropriate agency if you are traveling somewhere that you have not previously been to, or if you do not have an agency you are satisfied with."

    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. They pride themselves on offering unique “backstage pass” kind of experiences that you won’t find anywhere else. 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.

    Where Do They Operate?

    Their trips operate throughout Europe, including Turkey and several itineraries in Russia, which sets them a bit apart.

    Why Travel With Them?

    If you’re looking for a classic trip, with rich cultural experiences, history, and comfortable amenities, Exeter is the perfect place to look. There is also an exclusivity factor to their travel approach - so come here if you like having unique travel experiences to brag about! 

    About Lost World Adventures

    Founded in 1987, Lost World Adventures offers private and customized trips to South and Central America and Antarctica.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Your guide will get to know you before beginning to plan your customized experience. If you want to have a relaxing beach vacation, they can arrange that. Or if you’d rather hike up the adrenaline, they are able to offer that as well.

    Who Travels With Them?

    They accommodate anyone from honeymooners to large groups. Trips are generally in middle price range - you won’t find tremendously budget items here, but they do their best to craft a trip based on all factors, price included.

    Where Do They Operate?

    They are focused in South and Central America, with a variety of trips from beach vacations to Costa Rica, food tours in Argentina, or Machu Picchu adventures. They are also among the few small companies providing cruises to Antarctica.

    Why Travel With Them?

    For the variety of trip type and theme you can choose from. They have food and wine tours, adventure tours, beach getaways, and cruises - all of which are customizable to your likes and dislikes. If you’d prefer not to overly customize, they have pre-set itineraries as well.
