Political Tours Featured in the Media
From The Financial Times and Daily Telegraph, to NPR, the BBC and CNN, Political Tours has received widespread praise for its ground-breaking approach to travel.
Our tours work like documentaries that open up key issues in the news for people to experience at first-hand. They are led by the very best analysts and reporters and combine visits to local communities and businesses with meeting with senior politicians and community leaders.
Whatever the tour is you should come away with far deeper understanding of the region. And our customers consistently say it is also a highly rewarding experience. (Click here for customer feedback)

Graham Bell, Daily Telegraph
Writing in Daily Telegraph and The Australian about our recent South Africa tour, Graham Bell says that “few people get the same kind of access” as Political Tours.
The meetings form “part of an innovative approach to providing a deeper understanding of the challenges facing South Africa.”
The Financial Times notes that Political Tours “aims with each holiday to give visitors something like a news documentary … interviews with real people, in real places and provide serious analytical commentary in between.”
Raymond Whitaker, Independent
In Kosovo, Independent writer Raymond Whitaker states that the tours help to “get you under the skin” of a country in a way you could not do so by yourself or with another travel company.
CNN recently took a look at how we tackle some of the most complex issues in the news with this report on our tour of the London and The Financial Crisis.
