About

Chrissi and Jo welcome you to Explorer Travel where we passionately believe a friendly and personal service goes a long way to ensuring you of a perfect holiday experience.  We spend time understanding what you want from your holiday, planning and perfecting your trip until you are happy. Explorer Travel is a fully independent travel agency and we are able to provide impartial advice and thoughtful touches not found when you book direct with tour operators.

We specialise in helping you turn your travel dreams into reality and discover our amazing planet with its stunning wildlife, scenery, local cultures and people.

Chrissi has had the privilege of journeying to many of the locations that we feature and is able to share her knowledge and love for adventure with you.  Her personal highlights include witnessing the rare spirit bears in Canada; the fascinating wildlife of the Galapagos; the ruggedness of the Scottish Highlands; Arctic cruising and staying in the snow hotel in Kirkenes; African safaris; Cape Horn and Chile and seeing the chimps and gorillas in Uganda.

 

Jo shares Chrissi’s love for travel and specialises in family holidays both abroad and in the UK. Her own family holiday experiences include visiting Lapland and riding in a sleigh pulled by a team of huskies, canoeing along the Dordogne and experiencing Florida and Disney! Prior to family life Jo has visited Australia, New England and eastern Canada, and many parts of Europe.
