Cultural Discovery Tours

See the world in another's eyes

Ever since MT Sobek took its first footsteps into the remote kingdom of Nepal in 1969, we have traveled with a natural curiosity, an open mind, and with a deep respect for the cultures we encounter. We select local guides who can skillfully navigate the complexities of undertaking cultural journeys in destinations as far flung as Iraqi Kurdistan and Uzbekistan. We are extending our cultural travels in Africa and adding immersive adventures in Eqypt and Morocco, where classical antiquities and desert camel treks await! Plus, the continuing success of our Istria to Venice hiking trip has tickled our taste buds-leading to new food.
