We don’t know about you, but we’re SO over trips with large tour groups with a set agenda which only leaves you rushing from one tourist landmark to another. A little flexibility, please? And where are the local gems?
With the launch of National Geographic Private Expeditions, it seems that a new type of independent travel is set to please travelers like us: love the luxurious style without going over board, but most importantly, a flexible itinerary packed with experiences of how locals live.
Natgeo has partnered with Virtuoso – the international network of luxury-focused travel agencies and advisors – to make these new trips happen. We can simply select a Private Expedition, choose our travel dates and any number of traveling companions then leave the legwork to both companies to work out the most ideal itinerary for us.
To make this happen, Virtuoso enlisted 20 top travel advisors to form a team of Natgeo specialists dedicated to manage every Private Expeditions booking.
Many Private Expeditions will also feature National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World, which is a brand new collection of sustainable hotels spread across 6 continents.
Check out the 13 Natgeo Private Expeditions newly launched today, bet many of these destinations are still on your bucket list!
