About us

Tailor-made Adventures are part of the Dragoman Overseas family in conjunction with Imaginative Traveller.

Our Experience

Imaginative Traveller has many years’ experience running small group adventures around the world and has now come together with the overland specialist, Dragoman, to create the unique Tailor-made Adventures brand. The expertise we’ve developed over many years has been applied to our tailor-made adventure holidays. If you love adventure travel and would like a personalised itinerary for just yourself and partner, family, group of friends, charity or school expedition, why not use our expertise to arrange your very own Tailor-made Adventure?

Our specialists have been creating memorable holidays for over 30 years, and have experienced adventure travel from all angles – travelling, leading tours and designing them. Our expertise stretches from well loved favourites such as India, Morocco and Thailand to more off the beaten track places like Georgia, Ethiopia and Central Asia, and we are passionate about creating unique and innovative itineraries to the type of destinations that excite the adventure traveller.

We don’t aim to offer everything – if you’re looking for a European city break, a simple beach holiday or a week in a Greek villa there are hundreds of other companies that are well placed to offer this. We go beyond the everyday and traditional holiday package to offer quality adventures in unusual and exciting destinations.

Our Service

Arranging your trip with us means that you won’t have the hassle of having to make your own arrangements, and you can rely upon our expertise to take care of all aspects of your trip, leaving you free to make the most out of your time. Whether you have a precise idea about what you what you want to do, or are looking for some recommendations we’re happy to help. We offer a choice of mid range, luxury and character accommodation for your trip (where applicable) and so you’re free to choose the option that suits you best.

The beauty of a tailor made trip is that it’s completely customised for you – if you have a particular interest in mind, or there’s a site you want to see that doesn’t normally feature on standard itineraries then let us know and we’ll do our best to include it. In the same vein, as it’s personalised to your requirements it can be as fast or slow paced as you like, so if you think you need a couple of extra days at Angkor Wat for example or fancy staying in Rio for a little longer, we’ll be happy to include this for you. Not everything is possible, and it’s important to realise that what may look good on paper doesn’t always work in reality – but that’s where we come in, using our personal knowledge and first hand experience to create an itinerary that is both feasible and memorable.

Travelling on a tailor made tour is always going to cost a little more than simply doing it yourself, but it needn’t cost the earth either. While we don’t aim to be the cheapest company around (there’s usually a reason for that), we do strive to offer excellent value for money and a level of service that treats you as an individual rather than just another client. Rather than just giving you a ‘quote’ we provide tailored itineraries designed to give you the best possible experience on your trip.

The itineraries on our website are just an example of the destinations we can offer, so if there’s somewhere else you’re interested in travelling to then let us know and we can discuss your options. With a Tailor Made Adventure the sky’s the limit, so whether this is an annual holiday or the trip of a lifetime we’re on hand to help throughout the process.

Responsible Travel

We are acutely aware that with the privilege of travelling to other destinations and cultures, there exists a moral obligation to ensure that this is carried out in a responsible manner. We work closely with all of our local partners to ensure that the services we offer are not detrimental, either to the people whose communities we visit, or the landscapes and environments that we travel through. We are dedicated to building a sustainable travel business and environmental, social and ethical considerations are key to our decision-making processes. We believe our trips should benefit local people and we endeavour to make local culture and communities an integral part of our itineraries. Perhaps most importantly, we recognise that we are guests of local communities we travel through – and we strive to make these communities into our partners, so they can benefit directly from our business.
