About us

At Imaginative Traveller we have a huge amount of enthusiasm for travel and ensure that all the ingredients of our tours are right – not just the price. Discover below the qualities that go into our trip selection and the ethos behind Imaginative Traveller.

Imaginative Tours


With Imaginative Traveller, you won’t just visit a new country; you’ll experience its heart. You’ll stay with people you’ve only read about and really immerse yourself within a country rather than just travelling through it. In short, you’ll experience the world from a local perspective and enjoy an adventure you’ll be talking about for years to come. Each tour includes features that we have always been renowned for – unique homestay accommodation, unusual transportation and distinctive activities. You might find yourself cycling across California, sailing around remote Burmese islands or learning the secrets of local cuisine on one of our Taste tours.

The Ultimate Collection


Imaginative Traveller has had over 20 years experience in creating, operating and selling group adventures. Our experience and firsthand knowledge of the destinations allows us to bring together a truly comprehensive range of itineraries sources from partner adventure companies around the world. Our tours are carefully chosen to be exciting, memorable, imaginative and most of all, fun!

Committed to sustainable tourism

Right from the very start The Imaginative Traveller has been built upon partnerships between ourselves and the communities, businesses and individuals in the countries where we operate. Our partners on the ground are from the local community – in many countries the partnerships we have established are as old as the company itself. Our view is that the destination must benefit from our presence. We source all our supplies locally and a high percentage of our staff are recruited locally. This level of local input ensures our trips are run responsibly with the local communities in mind.

Imaginative Traveller and Dragoman

In 2011 Imaginative Traveller joined forces with Dragoman Overseas Travel Ltd allowing customers to choose between two distinct travel styles..
The two companies operate side by side under the Dragoman Overseas Travel Ltd umbrella, with both brands retaining their individual websites and identity.

Charlie Hopkinson, MD of Dragoman Overseas Travel Ltd, said: “Whilst our truck-based Overland Tours are well-established, the integration of the Imaginative Traveller brand within the Dragoman family will allow us to develop our small group adventure holiday offering further. We are keen to retain the brand values, destinational expertise and emphasis on affordable adventures that has kept Imaginative Traveller customers loyal for the past 20 years and are confident that the product will complement our existing adventure holidays well.”And best of all, you can use your loyalty discount on both trip styles!
