Private and Tailor-made Tours with Enchanting Travels
Your trip is as unique as you are.
Every traveler has their own ideas about their journey of a lifetime – from where you wish to go, to what you wish to see and do. With that in mind, we create completely customized, private experiences that match your interests and preferences.
What does that mean? Let us tell you why our trips are more personalized, tailor-made and fully enchanting!
“We had a truly amazing experience, the best holiday we have ever had by a mile. This was because it was tailored to our needs, well organised and stress free. Thank you so much Enchanting Travels, we can’t wait for our next trip with you.“
What does private travel mean?
Private, tailor-made vacations – unlike packaged tours – offer far more freedom and flexibility to each traveler. A ‘private tour’ could mean:
A Self-organized Tour: A trip planned and organized entirely by you, where you book all your accommodations, transportation and activities individually.
A Private Catalog Tour: These are done privately but follow a specific itinerary and cannot be customized.
Tours with Individual Components: A tour that you can build from various components provided to you.
Private tours with Enchanting Travels offer you all the freedom and flexibility that come with planning your own trip. We don’t believe in the cookie cutter approach – no matter where you travel, you decide what you wish to see and do at each destination without compromising on your interests, preferences or the quality of each experience. Our team of seasoned, passionate travelers will completely customize your itinerary to match your travel dreams.
At the same time, you can enjoy all the benefits of organizing your vacation through a reliable travel company: 100% financial protection, safe and secure travel, and a dedicated and personal point of contact throughout your trip to assist you with anything you need.
“I can’t say enough good things about this company. Enchanting Travels took into account every detail from our wish list and over delivered. Our hotels were amazing, our guides were friendly and spoke perfect English, our chauffeurs were on time, the vehicles were all clean and came with air conditioning. We would not hesitate to book with them again in the future.“
Courtney Weil and her family have traveled with us to Asia.

In case of a private group tour, we ensure that it is limited only to a small number of guests – because we believe that truly magical moments are only experienced away from the crowds.

“Enchanting Travels came through again as we enjoyed our third private organized trip, this time to Argentina. As always, every Enchanting Travels contact person was easy to work with and ready to assist. When we had to move our vacation up unexpectedly one week, our panic was eased immediately by our Trip Coordinator and arrangements were changed and all was well! Enchanting Travels makes travel easy and relaxing!”

“Having been introduced to Enchanting Travels was the best thing, we have not stopped singing praises about it since we connected! For the first time in our lives, we were so relaxed on our trip that we didn’t even follow our itinerary because the guide/chauffeur just knew our every step. Amazing company and can’t wait to go on our next holiday with Enchanting Travels!”
Why you should choose a private tour
Private tours for your family
Planning a tour that meets the requirements of the eldest as well as the youngest members of your family is not easy – without local destination knowledge, it can be a daunting task. For families, traveling in a large group is difficult due to the special attention that your little ones need.
Our experts are happy to advise you about our family-friendly destinations, accommodations, and the best routes and transportation. While planning family vacations with younger children, we avoid longer journeys, plan plenty of rest stops, and choose accommodation and activities that work for both your children and you.
“We had an amazing trip booked through Enchanting Travels. 12 people traveling throughout Peru. The tours, guides, transportation and hotels were all excellent choices, picked for comfort and location. Our Trip Coordinator, Amelia, checked up on us frequently to see if we needed anything. I would highly recommend Enchanting Travels.”
Private Tours for the Differently-abled
For the differently-abled, there are many aspects to consider while planning your trip. At the time of booking your trip, it may not always be easy to gauge if an accommodation provides easy, barrier-free access to all the facilities. Additionally, participating in all the activities offered may prove to be difficult without the proper arrangements.
We plan your tour according to your preferences, so that you can enjoy a stress-free vacation and experience the best of each destination. During your trip with us, you can be sure of receiving all the care and support that you require – your Trip Coordinator, private local guide, and chauffeurs are happy to personalize all your travel arrangements. Contact us today and receive custom travel advice.
Private Tours for the Edlerly
Not all elderly travelers wish to plan a trip on their own. Safety and comfort are a priority, especially when you are older. We understand that you would prefer to sleep in a spacious, comfortable room with all the amenities you are used to, would not travel for long hours, or wish to carry all your bags everywhere. At the same time, you may also prefer to plan an itinerary according to your individual ideas and not follow a set, rigid program. Talk to us, and we’ll make it happen.
With us, rest assured that all your accommodations and activities are of the highest standard. All our local experts speak fluent English and are happy to adjust your daily schedule to match your pace and level of physical fitness.
If you need medical attention while you travel, you Trip Coordinator is happy to help – you need not worry about a thing.
“Our trip to the Galápagos was booked through Enchanting Travel. We cannot fault them. Everything was organised to the last detail. We will certainly be looking to them for any future travel.”
Private Tours for Your Group
If you wish to travel with your friends but do not wish to subject yourselves to a typical, set tour program, we can plan just the thing for you. We will work tirelessly with you to plan your itinerary until you are completely satisfied. With our personalized service, private travel guides and tour coordinators who cater to your individual needs, enjoy a high quality, seamless experience in all our 44 destinations while you travel.
“I would highly recommend travelling with Enchanted Travels. Everything was extremely professional and well planned from initial contact to all the travel to the different places we went. I would not hesitate to use them again for tours to any of the places that they organize or to tell a friend of their services….in fact I already have! Thanks Again for a wonderful trip.”
Cancellation Insurance for Private Tours
We are happy to provide you with travel cancellation insurance through Travel Guard, one of the world’s leading insurance brands under AIG. Purchasing travel insurance will give you peace of mind before and during your trip with us.
If you are planning a private vacation, we highly recommend that you purchase travel cancellation insurance. This is important for families traveling with young children or seniors.
There are two types of policies:
Cancellation insurance for a specific trip
An annual policy
The latter is especially important in if you travel more than once every year. In both cases, ensure that the closure is at least 30 days before the start of your trip.
Please note: A cancellation insurance is only valid until the start of your journey. You are not automatically insured against the cancellation of your trip due to unforeseen circumstances such as unexpected illness. We recommend that you insure your break in advance. Additionally, it is also advisable to get foreign health insurance – in some countries, it is even mandatory to carry proof of this before you enter. For more information, please contact your Enchanting Travels Consultant.
