Cultural

Bespoke cultural holidays and adventures worldwide. 

Travel is all about broadening the mind and experiencing the culture of a new destination is a highlight of any holiday. Culture can of course mean music, crafts, food and sight seeing around Europe or staying in a tribal hut in the African bush or a mountain village in Nepal!

Take time to meet local people wherever you go – talk to them about their way of life and immerse yourself a different environment, visit their houses and meet their families.  Don’t go on holiday and complain that ‘the food is not British’ – sample the local specialities!!  Food holidays are a great way to experience local culture, whether it’s a cookery school in Italy or a wander round the markets of south east Asia and cooking with the locals.

Spending time with indigenous tribes in particular, is an enriching experience on all levels.  It also means that by leaving your luxury resort maybe and travelling off the beaten track, you are contributing to local economy, buying food, drink and supplies from people along the way.  There are many great examples of community tourism and conservation efforts all over the world.  When on an African Safari I can suggest the right places to stay where your safari camp will be on community lands, run by local staff and guides and locations that with enrich your stay in many other ways than just watching the wildlife! I highly recommend spending time in Namibia with Conservancy Safaris.

There are lots of options for walking or cycling holidays around the world where you follow trails well off the beaten track and stay in small villages with local people.  There are donkey trails in Spain or guided trails in the Himalayas … lots of options for real cultural experiences around the world!

Family holidays can be particularly rewarding when you spend time with families from other cultures and backgrounds.  Take your children to meet others of their age in their local schools – they’ll be pen pals for life!

Volunteering holidays are also a great way to learn from other cultures and teach them as well.  Many destinations offer projects where you can spend time sharing your skills – that could be medical training, teaching English, sharing cooking skills or teaching sewing and other crafts for example. There are also volunteer projects in village communities and wildlife sanctuaries.  Ask me about including some volunteer work in your travels, particularly if you want to journey around the globe for an extended period, and we can work some projects into your itinerary.

You listened to what I wanted to do and see, and found me a package that delivered exactly that. Highlights included staying in villages, Chandelao Garh - with a tour of surrounding hamlets, Jojawr Ravla - with a Ganesh procession complete with powder paint throwing and a trip on a local railway where the train stopped just for me to take a picture of a Banyan tree! Visiting a Marwari horse stud in Jodhpur; shopping in Jaipur. The guide was so knowledgeable about the area, and really good at finding out what we were interested in and tailoring the holiday accordingly.

We knew nothing about Cuba when we came to your office and asked you to come up with an itinerary that covered all the bases. We feel we had a very good taste of what Cuba has to offer - the good, the bad and the ugly, all part of the experience. Beautiful country, lovely people - we had excellent guides, who provided lots of background info as well as showing us the must see sights. Our three homestays were also an interesting mix. The luxury resort at Caya Santa Maria was fantastic.

We enjoyed every minute of our trip to Southern India. We did a considerable number of miles, in all forms of transport - car, tuktuk, bus, train, boat! The temples in Tamil Nadu which I wanted to see were amazing. The colour and ornamentation is unbelievable.Thank you Jules & Nikhil for another glorious holiday. James was a wonderful driver, guide and all round friend. All in all wonderful!! On with the next!! Love India. Thank you to both of you.

Thank you for your organising our last minute city break to Palermo we thoroughly enjoyed the holiday. The junior suite at Hotel Quintocanto was worth the extra and you couldn't ask for a better location. We understand that the reason for the cancellation for our return flight was indeed strike action in Italy. We commend yourselves and the operator for how you handled the change to plan.
Carol & Chris – Sicily (Feb 2017)

Our honeymoon to Bali & Lombok, from the moment we decided to use Travel with Jules, was such a fantastic experience and the service we received extremely professional and efficient. It was a delight to have all the flights, transfers and hotels organised so efficiently for us and the process was so professional, yet friendly at the same time. The beaches were beautiful and quiet and we found some great places to sample the delicious local food.
Bali & Lombok Honeymoon – Nicola & Miguel (Aug 2016)

If you’re considering seeing the Palio in Sienna (and you should) you must go for a few days before, and at least one day after. It is an extraordinary event that has its feet firmly placed in the Middle Ages, The Palio is actually about tradition, pageantry, corruption and thuggery. But all of those things make for an amazing experience. Jules got really good seats for us – the terraces is where it’s at. Then there’s the drums, the flags, the roaring oxen, the colour, the noise – an incredible time WILL be had! ..... But get stuck in – because they haven’t arranged it for you, and they won’t wait for you to join them!
The Palio in Siena, Italy – Howlett Family (Aug 2016)
August 26, 2016

Thailand was great we had an amazing time thank you so much! We loved both the hotels and their locations and would highly recommend both. Resort recommendation was excellent. I'm not sure we would have come across these hotels on our own and they were both exactly what we were looking for. Also thank you for getting such a good price for us. I was surprised that this holiday was not more expensive! Highlights -
Molloy Family – Thailand (July 2016)
August 10, 2016

We had a brilliant weekend, staying at the Angelo by Vienna House Hotel in Katowice - plenty of walking, sightseeing & a wee bit of drinking! We would definitely recommend you and give you a 5 star service rating! Everything was brilliant, especially having information about exactly which bus to take from the airport to the Hotel and at which stop we needed to get off – very helpful indeed.
Kay, Richard, Sam & Kevin – Poland (May 2016)
May 20, 2016

As always you did everything to such a high standard (We wouldn't expect anything else from you though!!) Where in the world can you visit a zen garden in the morning and meet with the head resident priest for a chat, see a very large cat being walked on a collar and lead through the bamboo groves and see the craziness of a robot cabaret........... that would be Japan!!!! A massive thank you to Jules and Mags for yet another fabulously arranged holiday. If you're thinking of going to Japan then book with Travel with Jules, the organisation is excellent, the information you receive is comprehensive and very detailed, you can't go wrong.
Sarah & Jeremy – Japan (April 2016)
May 30, 2016

Thank you again for your help in organising our Easter family holiday to the Al Waha Shangri-La - the early check in and requests for facilities in the room for our baby worked perfectly! The VIP meet and greet at the airport on arrival took the stress out of arriving in the heat with 3 children and highly recommend it!
Cole Family – Oman (April 2016)
May 24, 2016

The holiday was AMAZING, Gambia is such a great destination, thank you for recommending we visit and putting together a wonderful varied experience for us, we loved it all! Fathala Wildlife Reserve in Senegal was incredible, the ferry transfers were great fun and an insight to local life and we were well looked after on both journeys. The Mandina Lodges were stunning and the floating lodge was lovely.
Dave & Amanda – Gambia (March 2016)
May 30, 2016

We had the most wonderful time thank you so much!! We loved the safari in South Luangwa. Danforth yachting (Lake Malawi) was great fun - we enjoyed all the activities. Kaya Mawa was gorgeous we had a great time and the food was fantastic!! All in all a hugely successful trip so thank you for putting it all together for us. We will definitely recommend you to friends
Brown Family – Zambia & Malawi (March 2016)
May 20, 2016

Thank you so much for organising my trip to Australia for me! I was very unsure about travelling alone but Mags met me and talked me through the things I needed to do, such as getting travel insurance and a visa. The group I met in Alice Springs and travelled with were great fun and the tour leader was lovely. I really loved everything, it was all amazing!
Becky Baker – Australia (Feb – March 2016)
March 29, 2016

What can I say? You did it again! From the night I arrived, being welcomed back to Hemingways in Nairobi (I felt like the King of Scotland again!), to the day I left everything was a complete delight. Elephant Watch Camp is lovely, the staff there are superb. They know all the elephants by name and there were around 9 families in the area, Saba had arranged a surprise sleep out for me with the warriors! I had some amazing leopard sightings around Samburu too ... all in all very sad to leave there.
Wilf Graham – Elephant Watch, Kenya (March 2016)
March 29, 2016

Great time had by both of us, lots to see and find interesting, some bits not as good as others but none bad! Enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere at Tanjong Jara and meeting Chef Ann!! Great holiday, good memories, and thank you as ever for arranging it and for rapid responses to my emails even whilst travelling. Here's to the next one!
Jenny & David Stagg – Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore (Feb – Mar 2016)
March 23, 2016

The entire trip and booking process has been a highlight! From talking to Jules on the phone trying to decide where to go to finding out the actual experience was exactly as she described it would be. Wildlife, nature, good weather, friendly welcomes…fantastic food… perfect flights… everything! Going to Zambia in the Emerald season is a delight...
Naomi Delorme – Zambia (Feb – March 2016)
March 22, 2016

Giving us a wealth of knowledge from her years spent working in Africa, Jules soon put together the perfect holiday for us. Just back home, the holiday already seems like ages ago but we really did have the trip of a lifetime! Thank you Jules for your arrangements and making it all work so well for us (especially talking to us whilst we were flying from the Mara, not sure which air strip to get off the plane!!)
David & Sue Hughes – Kenya (Feb – March 2016)
March 24, 2016

Communication was always very clear and we always had a quick response. We were very pleased with the service we received from Travel With Jules. The Ha Long Bay Bassac boat cruise was brilliant, the crew on board were a fantastic group and did everything they could to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. We would definitely recommend your services to our friends.
Hannah & Richard Miller – Indo China (Feb 2016)
March 23, 2016

Thank you for our tailor made holiday to Cambodia and Vietnam (with Dubai stop over). You listened to what we wanted and made the changes to our itinerary as requested. The ground agents were fantastic, the guides were always on time and everything was organised very efficiently. There were many fantastic sights and experiences. Halong Bay was a particular favourite of mine.

We just returned from a beautiful trip to Ethiopia, we thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks for organising it and sorry for the late changes we made to the programme! Simien Mountains, Lalibela and Bale Mountains were beautiful as were the Gelada baboons, the Ibex, incredible amount of native birds and the Ethiopian wolf

Thank you for booking our Christmas Market River Cruise holiday to Germany, we had a really lovely time. The staff on the boat (MPS Rotterdam) and our cabin (Promenade deck) was lovely and the food was out of this world! The best markets were in Bonn and Rudesheim.

January 4, 2016

America was terrific, excellent music and absolutely extraordinary history and intriguing places to stay, we enjoyed every stop but have become great fans of the B&B venues. I would recommend them all, so thanks for organising those, we'd have missed them if left to our own devices. Eye opening "Southern Hospitality"
Powis Family – USA Deep South (Oct 15)

December 6, 2015

We had a thoroughly wonderful time and experienced a lot of 'once in a life time' moments which I cannot thank you enough for organising for us. If I hear of anyone planning on going on any big holiday like we did I will most definitely be recommending they contact you!
Louise & Lili – China and Japan (June 2015)
July 9, 2015

Our holiday in Venice, taken to celebrate David’s 70th birthday, and arranged with great care by Travel with Jules was quite wonderful. We loved every moment of the performance of La Traviata which we attended at La Fenice - the cherry on the top of the holiday cake.
Annette & David (from France) – Venice (May 2015)
June 6, 2015

Cuba – what an amazing country ... the noise and bustle of Havanna, the cars, the history, the people, a place stopped in time, interesting scenery, history and culture and the most beautiful beaches!

July 24, 2015

Thank you so much for booking our fabulous holiday to Vietnam and Cambodia with Viking River Cruises.  We had a great time, the boat was not too big, very comfortable and food was excellent – there were 51 people and for the land tours around Ho Chi Minh City, Siem Reap and Hanoi we were […]

December 7, 2014

We would like to express our appreciation for the organising of the wonderful holiday to India. We were looked after like 'Sahib and Sahiba' from our arrival until our departure! A huge thank you to yourself and Nikhil at Western & Oriental for our experience of a lifetime.

October 31, 2014

Thank you to Travel With Jules for co-coordinating our rail and accommodation arrangements for our rail holiday to France and Italy – I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any of our friends requiring similar help.

Just a quick note to say a massive thank you for organising such an amazing Honeymoon to Japan (and administering the ‘gift voucher’ scheme from our wedding guests).

April 29, 2014

It was great to have your help, advice and guidance on where to go on our travels for our Honeymoon in Thailand. La Flora was beautiful and Khao Sok National Park and the elephants amazing! We were sad to leave but had so many great memories, thank you again for all your help to make this happen.
Kilda and Lee – Thailand (Feb 2014)
April 29, 2014

The team at the hotel were warm, friendly and keen to ensure that everything I wanted was catered for...You also have the option of cruising around the local markets and enjoying talking with locals, or jumping on a bicycle and hitting the beach or going further afield. Sounds busy and it is, but in the best possible way!! And as ever, thanks to Julie's seamless organisation, all I had to do is turn up with passport and sunglasses :)
Jim Sibree-Paul – Vietnam (Feb 2014)
April 4, 2014

A huge thank you for organising and booking our holiday to Zambia and Malawi, Norman Carr Safaris, what can we say, WOW what a great company. For the first two nights we were up graded to their 'flag ship' new camp at Chinzombo! We left with very fond memories and we really do have Africa in our hearts now. We really did 'live our dream' so thank you for making it happen.
Phil & Sue Fenning – Zambia & Malawi (Feb 2014)
March 14, 2014

A special thank you for organising both my visits this year to Namibia and introducing me to Conservancy Safaris.  They were such a privilege to travel with, especially this last trip where Garth personally guided me to the most remote areas I have ever been to.  This adventure with Conservancy Safaris was amongst my best […]
Wilf Graham – Namibia (Feb & Oct 2013)
December 13, 2013

As usual the whole organisation, choice of hotel, resort and weather was impeccable. And you arranged for Vesuvius not to blow it's top whilst we were there. So that's another item ticked off the list: I am amazed I've finally seen Pompeii and particularly Herculaneum. We don’t do holidays that are so relaxing that we really, REALLY, DON’T WANT TO GO HOME! AND IT WAS ALL YOUR FAULT......
Ian & Cathy Furbank – Italy, Sorrento & surrounds (October 13)
November 24, 2013

Hi Julie we are back from Italy I just wanted to say that was the best holiday we have ever had! I cannot rate Villa la Massa (Florence) highly enough and your help with setting it all up was invaluable. I have sent in the post holiday questionnaire to the operator and included your name […]

September 19, 2013

Just returned from our fabulous holiday that you arranged for us to Malaysia.

The Buck Family – Malaysia (June 2013)
July 4, 2013

Thank you so much for all your hard work ! Our entire honeymoon to Malawi and Zambia was flawlessly planned from start to finish. The advice we received prior to booking was knowledgeable and invaluable upon arrival. Julie was generous and patient with her time and answered all our questions and concerns, regularly in communication out of office hours. We literally had the trip of a lifetime with so many 'firsts' in terms of experiences. The safari in South Luangwa was amazing, the village experience at Ntchisi Forest Lodge was a bit of a culture shock, but glad we went and Kaya Mawa was truly out of this world, we were looked after incredibly by the management team, the food was superb and we had our own little pool!
Nicola & Robbie Nolan – Malawi & Zambia (April 2013)
May 20, 2013

Just a quick email to let you know we had the most amazing honeymoon in Sri Lanka. Your services were fantastic, it was easy to contact to you at times convenient for us. We were able to plan our itinerary to suit us......and make changes until we were happy with the content and hotels! Our driver, Sisi, was lovely. He was informative, great to be around & importantly a good driver!
Carla & Phil Eveleigh – Sri Lanka (February 2013)
March 7, 2013

We would all like to thank you Jules for organizing and planning our brilliant self drive holiday to South Africa at such short notice! The things we did and saw were amazing, we got up as early as we could each day to pack in a lot, we did many sight seeing tours around Cape Town including hiking up Table Mountain and Signal Hill to see the sunset. We spent hours at the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point, the views were incredible. Our Holiday continued along the Garden Route with brilliant accommodation and food every where we went. To see the ocean and the coastlife, nature everywhere and the culture of the people was amazing - and the weather was great too. Thanks Jules from all of us
Roy, Eileen & Jason Snow – South Africa (February 2013)
March 1, 2013

Jules designed our holiday around us, taking on board everything we said we wanted to do and see and tried to include everything within our budget for our holiday of a lifetime to India. I cannot recommend Travel with Jules highly enough, she takes the time to listen to what you want, how much you have to spend and will fit your holiday around your requirements. Look no further than Travel with Jules for your special holiday.
Neal & Mandy- India (November 2012)
November 23, 2012

We have just returned from a fantastic time in Malawi and Zambia – our first venture into Africa. Nothing was too much trouble and Julie always found the time to talk to us, answer our many questions and clarify every detail. We would not hesitate in recommending Travel with Jules to anyone who wanted first class, worry free, personal travel services.
Dianne & David Gazeley – Malawi & Victoria Falls (June 2012)

December 20, 2011

Just back from Jordan & Israel - a brilliant holiday. We had a fantastic time and never at any stage was there any doubt about the arrangements. We greatly appreciate all the hard graft you put in to make things happen for us, and the planning with you and expectation of things to come doubles the pleasure of the experience.
Furbank Family – Jordan & Israel (Oct 2011)
October 30, 2011

One of the things I have come to love about you, Jules, is that you listen and take on board what makes me tick, and then tailor the holiday to fit me, not just try to convince me to fit a holiday in a brochure!
