You're a Good Person
You work hard, exercise, take care of your family, eat well, conserve resources - you're a good person! But sometimes you need something more. You need to get away, experience the world, meet people who's lives are nothing like your own, see wildlife you've only read about, learn, laugh, get soaked in a tropical rainstorm, eat strange food!
You Need a Detour!
So you decide to take a trip! You want to get off the bus, get away from the crowd listening to the guide with the microphone, get out from behind the window. You want to EXPERIENCE your destination, not just look at it! We get it. A Detour is a better way to travel - Experiential Travel that gets you off the bus, away from the standard tourist routes; travel that allows you to truly experience your destination.
You're Only Going to Go Once - You want to Do It Right
But where to begin – you want a great trip but don’t have the time to waste endlessly searching the internet for it. We've got you covered. Our decades of experience in international travel is put to use to help you get the trip of your dreams. We work with the top local companies in each destination, and since we don't brand any trips as our own, we have no incentive to force you to take a particular trip. We offer many different trips in each destination, each with a different focus. Want to see what other travelers think? Read their unfiltered trip reviews to get their opinions. You can even compare trips, apples for apples (papayas for papayas?), right on our site to see what might be best for you.
Your Vacation Can Make the World a Better Place
Best of all, your Detour helps to make the world a better place. We only work with local companies, so the money you spend goes directly into the local economy where you are traveling, employing local people and providing money for schools, roads, and better lives for local people. We support Rainforest Alliance Verified companies, hotels, boats, and tour operators, so you are traveling with the most responsible companies on the planet. Just by traveling, you are making the world a better place.
Wow, you really are a good person!
