Get under the skin of a destination and its people – away from the tourist trail
We all love a beach break from time to time, but have you ever wanted to experience the ‘real’ side of a destination? Travel becomes more than just a holiday when you dive into a country’s culture and learn more about its history, people and traditions. It can be truly eye-opening.
At Blank Canvas, we’re all about stepping off the well-trodden tourist trail – and straight into authentic, meaningful experiences that stay with you for a lifetime.
With our help, you can explore each destination in a way that most tourists don’t get to see. Our expert travel guides will give you insider tips on everything from where to find the best street food stall to the best museums, galleries and cultural sites to visit.
We’ll give you a tailormade tour of your dream destination. All you have to do is tell us what you’d like to see and do.
Ready for a sensory experience like no other?
Regular travellers with Blank Canvas love packing in as much as possible to their bespoke itineraries. It’s all about indulging your senses, whether on a foodie tasting tour with a local guide or being treated to a mesmerising performance by indigenous musicians in a remote mountain village.
Want to know where to find the best seafood on Mauritius or the best dumplings in Hong Kong? How about a private guided tour of Thailand’s beautiful Buddhist temples, or the best museums to learn all about South Africa’s complex political history? From artwork to local cuisine, architecture to religion, you can drink it all in on a personalised Blank Canvas trip.
And of course, the best part is learning all about how local people live. After all, you can’t understand a place until you get to know its people.
