Our philosophy is what we call ethical travel. Every time you travel with us Original Trails makes a donation on your behalf to a local community project or initiative we support. We connect you with culture and community, while at the same time keeping you in comfort, private transport and providing you with the best local guides.

We use locally owned and operated boutique hotels, eco-lodges and unique hotels that operate in an eco-friendly and conscientious manner. We use local businesses that support sustainable tourism practices.

Simply put, it’s about making a difference in the places we travel to. Come with us to experience deluxe travel, the right way.
