We have been organising tours and safaris for 30 years and we believe we know how to create special holiday experiences, rather than standard packaged tours. Great holidays need inspirational ideas, exceptional destinations, expert advice and good planning. There is an art to travelling well, and we feel strongly that individually designed journeys tailored to suit your interests, style and budget are the best way to experience the spectacular destinations we offer. Our destinations have been chosen either for their exceptional natural beauty, special wildlife experiences or cultural authenticity, or all three of these. Whether it’s the unmatched wildlife viewing of the African game parks, gliding through the unspoiled waterways of Botswana’s Okavango Delta in a dugout canoe, experiencing the historic and cultural riches of India and South America, or discovering the pristine wilderness of Antarctica, our programs cover some of the world’s most special places.
At APT, we understand that your holiday is just that, yours. You want to be able to have the holiday you have always dreamed about, and this is exactly what we offer on an APT Journey. We’re always working behind the scenes taking care of every little detail, so that you can travel without a care in the world. We call it APT Freedom. And we’ve got five promises to prove it.
FREEDOM TO BE YOURSELF – With every detail taken care of behind the scenes, you’re 100% free to be whoever you want to be. Hop on a bike and explore on your own or relax and unwind. Every day is yours to design.
FREEDOM TO CHOOSE – With our Freedom of ChoiceTM Inclusions, history buffs will rejoice in medieval wonders, while foodies can savour morsels of sheer culinary delight. Get active on a guided bike ride or take in an onboard lecture. The choice is yours.
FREEDOM TO OPT OUT – A common misconception about an APT holiday is that you’ll be herded around in groups all doing the same thing. Need some time to yourself? Perhaps enjoy a leisurely sleep-in or curl up with a good book. No problem, it’s up to you.
FREEDOM FROM WORRY – The best thing about APT Freedom is knowing that you don’t have to worry about anything. You’re free from obligation, stress and anxiety, so you can make every holiday moment count, knowing our experts have taken care of everything.
FREEDOM FROM HIDDEN COSTS – Tipping and gratuities, exchange rates, budgeting, forget about it. An APT journey is inclusive, so instead of feeling like you’re constantly forking out for everything you do, you’re free to focus on having fun.
