It was a great day with Hassan. It made what would have been an otherwise insular trip something pretty special. Meeting a family in their home was a highlight.

The trip to Turkey was excellent and so also were all the logistics. I think the political tours concept is wonderful…

In May I took my most worthwhile package tour ever, a trip to Bosnia and Serbia organised by Political Tours. It was a sobering, thought provoking and memorable eight days. My fellow travelers constituted one of the most rewarding aspects of the trip; from a range of backgrounds, all were knowledgeable, interested and, pretty important,

It goes without saying that I thoroughly enjoyed the Beijing-North Korea trip and many thanks for all your expert guidance and organisation. It will always be an unforgettable experience for me and one which has given me a different perspective on life.

It’s often the outsiders that rock a settled boat, and I believe Political Tours has defined an utterly new and vibrant market niche that creates a new sector within adventure travel.  

The Political Tours analysts provided balanced and informative insights into both the positive and negative trends in the region.  

It gave us a completely unique way to look at the environment we live in now. This trip has been the thing that has galvanized everyone.  

There were tour briefings on who we were going to see at each meeting and the context behind it, and that was one of the most important things. If there were any questions we needed to ask, there was someone to answer them.  

The impact was immense and far exceeded our expectations. It took us completely out of our comfort zone but because of the organisational capability we felt very safe at the same time.
