We do things a little differently here at Orange Umbrella Travel. For one, we’re a small-group tour company. We never travel with more than twelve people in a group.
For another, at every opportunity we work with local, independent hotels and businesses to give back directly to the local community, as well as emphasizing low impact travel and sustainability.
We think critically and personally investigate every one of our trip destinations before we take a group there. We look for places with an abundance of good food, good music, friendly people, beautiful nature, and that ‘x-factor’ that’s hard to put into words.
Unlike many tour companies who have never actually been on the trips they sell we have meticulously researched and experienced every aspect of our trips. Our guides are experts at each and every destination and on leading you on a fun and safe trip.
From transportation, to hotels, to restaurant logistics, we take care of the tedious details so you don’t have to. We’ve personally researched and experienced every aspect of our trips so you can rest easy, enjoy yourself, and never have so much as a bad meal.
