luxury small group tours for the curious traveller


high end, culturally immersive, small group tours



Greetings, fellow explorer. I’ve spent a significant chunk of my life documenting travel stories, and along the way, I’ve stumbled upon some truly remarkable places that I felt compelled to share with like-minded adventurers. Thus, Tripwired Tours came into existence – not just a collection of destinations but a distinctive approach to travel.

My preference is for a more measured pace. I steer clear of lengthy bus rides and favor itineraries that provide the flexibility to pursue individual interests. I find solace in small hotels that exude character and tranquility, all while ensuring a comfortable stay. When it comes to dining, I appreciate indulging in exceptional cuisine in delightful settings, but every now and then, I can’t resist the allure of street food. That’s where Liz comes into the picture.

This venture is more than a travel enterprise; it encapsulates my personal philosophy on travel – deliberate, thoughtful, and punctuated with meaningful moments. So, if you share a penchant for savoring the journey, uncovering hidden treasures, and reveling in a well-crafted travel experience, consider joining us. Let’s embark on a journey where each step tells a story. Ready for an adventure tailored to your style? I certainly hope so.



Meet Liz, the maestra of discovering enchanting havens, culinary treasures, and the extraordinary moments that define our small-group tours. Now, let me share a captivating chapter: Liz and I have been journeying together since the ’70s, and the spark of wonder, excitement, and sheer joy in our travels continues to burn brightly.

Our purpose is profound: we yearn to infuse your travels with the same sense of exhilaration and discovery that has fueled our own odyssey.
