The Portugal trip (May 2018) with Kathy was amazing. Every detail of our hikes, lunches at the beach, special dinners, musical presentations, accommodations, and surprises, was orchestrated delightfully! Kathy is a rock star in the world of active travel, adventure, and foodie experiences!

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 Whole Journeys

            For the last 30 years, many of us know Whole Foods Market® as a grocery store that sources and sells the highest quality natural and organic products available. John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods, launched Whole Journeys, an experiential travel company, in 2012. Whole Journeys tours are designed to bring travelers closer to the source of the products that is sold in the grocery stores. The travel company is now independently run by Kathy Dragon, a travel industry veteran.

            What Makes Them Stand Out?

            Whole Journeys is unique among guided tour operators in that the they specialize in active adventures for foodies. Think cooking classes in Provence, visiting with locals at an outdoor market in Peru, or walking around an olive farm in Sicily. Most of the company’s trips spend at least 2-3 nights in each location, so the traveler doesn’t feel rushed. Group sizes are 16 people maximum, for a small, intimate vibe. In addition to food-focused tours, Whole Journeys also offers health and wellness trips for those interested in improving their health and vitality.

            Who Travels With Them?

            Similar to Whole Foods Market, Whole Journeys offers premium products, which tend to attract a mix of couples, friends, and some solo travelers. All travelers share a love of food and adventure and yearn to get closer to the artisans and farmers who grow, bake, and create some of the world’s most delicious culinary treats.

            Where Do They Operate?

            Many Whole Journeys trips will take you to Europe, specifically Italy and France. Other more exotic trips exist, like adventures in Peru, India, and China. Most trips are available for private departures at an extra cost. The company uses a mix of boutique hotels and local, authentic guesthouses and homestays.

            Why Travel with Them?

            If you are a foodie at heart and enjoy rolling up your sleeves in the kitchen, then a Whole Journeys trip could be for you. Active travelers who like a mix of adventure and culture may also be a good fit for a Whole Journeys trip.
