One of the best aspects of Imaginative Traveller is our fantastic Destination Managers. These are our representatives based in the destinations where they operate, plan and manage our tours. This means every year they know exactly what is going to be an up and coming destination for travellers, and if there are are ever any problems on the ground they can act quickly.
