The value of booking your holiday with Exeter International includes:
We are passionate about our destinations, but we understand that independent travel can sometimes be challenging. Guide books are out of date even before they are published, and it’s not so much a case of what you know as who you know. We cultivate our extensive local contacts and travel to our destinations regularly to update our knowledge.
Our Exeter team has traveled, lived, researched and studied our part of the world. Several of our staff have been named to the extraordinarily prestigious Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure lists of top travel specialists. Use our knowledge and expertise to ensure you have the best experience and make the most of your time. We can design a trip that will avoid poor flight connections, crowds at museums (as much as possible) and make your vacation unique. This takes planning and experience and is our specialty.
We go beyond the well-known sites to allow you to discover little-known museums or street markets off the beaten track. And more importantly, we’ll open doors that are closed to the general public.
Different, unusual and often closed to the general public–we can offer special insider access that defines experiential travel.
We know that selecting the right guide can be the single most important factor in the enjoyment of your vacation. Exeter guides are handpicked and have benefited from years of training. You will not be stuck with a guide that has poor English or a lack of knowledge.
Skip the Line
Avoiding long waits in museum lines is one of our top priorities. Because we pre-purchase most museum tickets and make appointments wherever possible, we minimize waiting time to get into the most popular sights in each city.
We book a number of people at all our partner hotels, giving us preferred rates, clout and often availability to rooms even on very busy dates. Expect added amenities and often complimentary upgrades upon check-in at our partner hotels (subject to availability).
