Great Journeys with Tucan Travel

TS Elliot once said that it is “the journey, not the arrival that matters.” Whether you are travelling alone or in a group, we believe that it is the journey that makes the experience memorable. Our award winning longer tours really are great, stretching over all the continents we operate in over differing lengths of time.

Whether you are enjoying our famous Circuito on board one of our purpose built buses or navigating Eastern Europe and Turkey on local transport on our Eastern Europe to Turkey tour, our Great Journey’s use a variety of methods to get you from A to B. There will be plenty of opportunities to marvel at the scenery, mingle with the locals and maintain a slice of normality.

The tours you see listed below are the greatest of our Great Journeys however, if you are looking for the tailored touch, we can arrange for any of these tours to be done privately.

Customer Reviews


"We completed the Sacred Valley and Inca Trail trip with Tucan. It was a 7 day 6 night trip and all the accommodation and most of the meals were provided in the price. The guides provided were very friendly and very knowledgeable and the 2 guides stayed with the group for the whole trip. The setup of the hike was amazing, the porters were great and prepared delicious meals and prepared all the tents so when you arrive at the destination you could relax. I found the whole trip great value for money and would recommend Tucan to anyone about to take on the Inca Trail."
