Cultural Tourism and the Discovery of Past and Present
Every place has a unique story, and a cultural and heritage tour helps narrate it. Discover the past through the remains of medieval cities, ancient temples, and archaeological sites.
Visit Mayan pyramids and temples to learn about the daily and ceremonial life of this ancient civilization. Explore the legacy of the colonial Spanish in the architecture of countless South and Central American cities like Antigua, Cartagena, and Sucre.
Experience Asia’s various religious and spiritual traditions in real time as you listen to monks chat in the atmospheric monasteries of Bhutan, or watch devotees worship in the elaborate temples of India or Bali. Step into Japan’s Zen gardens and ancient Shinto shrines. Or make your Japanese cultural experience more immersive by having dinner with a geisha, attending a matcha tea ceremony, or taking a hands-on sumo wrestling or Samurai swordsmanship lesson.
Anyone with the faintest interest in traditional architecture will be bowled over by the abundance of India’s heritage structures. Erotic temples in Khajuraho, grand medieval forts and palaces in Rajasthan, the bustling temple towns of Tamil Nadu, the Taj Mahal in Agra—these are only a small fraction of the country’s cultural wealth.
Asia to Africa, Central to South America, browsing local markets is a marvelous way to experience a region’s contemporary culture. Explore lives, legends, and lore as you wander through Asia’s floating produce markets or the colorful handicraft markets of the native Andean cultures.
If you’d like to visit an indigenous community we’ll arrange a tour that is respectful of their culture and ethical and responsible to the people you meet. It’s a good way to delve deeper into the history and heritage of a people, their environment and way of life. Spend the day with the Uros who live on floating homes on Lake Titicaca in Peru, or interact with Maasai pastoralists in Kenya.
As you travel the world and uncover its cultural diversity, you will be repeatedly reminded that around every corner lies a fascinating tale. At Enchanting Travels we take pride in helping you immerse in and experience these stories.
