Culture & Festivals

Imaginative Traveller has an incredible knowledge and understanding of the geography and culture of a destination. Tours of the music, festivals, history and culture of a country can be particularly fascinating and really brought to life when guided by a specialist. 

Certain music tours have been created in conjunction with Songlines Music Travel - the folks behind Songlines, the world music magazine - and are specifically designed to immerse you in the traditional music of your destination. With these tours you will be guided by a music specialist, as well as local guides.
