Your holidays are important to you, and every detail of your trip is important to us as well. But of course actions speak louder than words, and that is why we take pride in the fact that the vast majority of our clients are made up of repeat travelers who come back to us year after year, along with the friends and families that they refer to us. Here are some of the reasons why…


We love what we do

We're passionate about travel. After 24 years of designing intriguing tours all around the globe, we're just as excited about travelling the world now as we were on the first day we began. And our passion allows us to continue travelling ourselves and staying abreast of all the developments and new travel opportunities that are being created all the time.

Tailor-Made Itineraries

With a Footprints custom tour you have no fear of being dragged along to tourist traps or on sightseeing excursions that are of no interest to you. Rather, we work with you to plan your itinerary, so if you are not interested in a particular sight, we won't include it. Of course, the flip side is also true – if a particular attraction or activity is of great interest to you, then you can spend as much time there as you like, with no fear of being herded back to a tour bus before you want to leave. And there are no limits to the variety, content or amount of activity within your itinerary – whether you want to visit the monasteries of Tibet, cruise Turkey's Aegean coast in a private yacht, explore Costa Rica's rainforest canopy or the spectacular caves and jungles of Borneo, not only can we organize it for you, we can also provide you with first-hand knowledge of the experience that you can expect.

Experienced team of travel planners

Utilizing our extensive experience and long established relationships with a broad global network of highly educated and experienced travel professionals, we can suggest numerous destinations, sites, and cultural or adventure options, without being restricted to what is available 'off the rack' from various inbound tour companies. No matter how easy or difficult the logistics may be, if you would like to get there, we can organize it for you.

Guiding Excellence

On our custom tours, you are provided with excellent, private guides throughout your trip. And if you have a particular interest, we can provide you with an expert in the field that can provide you with all of the in-depth, detailed information and analysis that you are looking for. Do you want to learn about Indian art, Cambodian history, rainforest wildlife or tribal spirituality? Whatever your interests, we can provide you with the guides and resources to create truly enlightening travel experiences.


Travel off the beaten track

While we do love our creature comforts, it's not all about fabulous accommodations, but rather, creating fabulous experiences within beautiful and unique locations. Whether it's experiencing the sunrise from the steps of Borobudor in Java, exploring the backwaters of Kerala, or sleeping beneath the stars on the African savannah, we'll work with you to create magical experiences that you will remember for the rest of your life.

We go the extra mile

Basically, nothing is too much trouble. We'll arrange for private musicians in the Indian desert camp, hot air ballooning over the moonlike landscape in Cappadocia, or that special bottle of wine to appear at your jungle lodge. We have thrilled clients with memorable celebrations in exotic locations all around the world, and if there is something special on your own 'wish list', do let us know and we'll be happy to take care of it.

We believe in value.

While we may not be the cheapest, when it comes to value for money, we're very hard to beat.

Choose your own dates, routings and accommodation levels.

On a Footprint custom designed trips you need not worry about fitting scheduled group departure dates into your own schedule, because you choose your own time for travel. Nor are you forced into traveling on group flights. Rather, you can choose how to get there – economy or business class, purchase tickets or use your air points reward program, stop over en-route or on the way home. And whether you would like to stay within the grandeur of the world's finest hotels, or prefer charming boutique accommodations, the choice is yours. From the former palaces of India's maharajas to tribal home-stays high on the Bolivian altiplano, we can arrange it.

Financial security.

As a long-standing and fully licensed travel company under the Travel Industry Act of Ontario, and our industry's traveler's compensation Fund we can offer you 100% financial security, so that you can sit back and relax knowing that you are in good hands.

Loyal clientele.

We are proud that the majority of the tours that we design are for our repeat clients, and the friends and families that they have referred to us. After all, what better testament could there be to our commitment to provide exceptional service and value then having the pleasure of dealing with the same people year after year?
