  • We put money into the hands of locals by dealing directly with local guides, accommodation providers, tuk-tuk drivers and co-operatives.
  • We always support local traditional crafts and artisans and choose to take our explorers to shops that offer authentic, hand-made goods over mass-produced fakes.

MEET YOUR PRIVATE TOUR PLANNER

Our private group tours are lovingly designed by me – Nicole Farrell, your resident founder, self-confessed textile lover and chocoholic.

I understand your dilemma because I’ve been where you are: Longing to explore, but unsure – and daunted by! – language barriers and cultural differences.

I remember booking a trip to India, ready to plunge myself into the colour and culture of a magical country … only to find that the ‘real’ India I’d been so excited to explore had been locked away. I was left experiencing it through smudged bus windows.

So, I booked a tuk-tuk and took (took – ha ha) myself off on an adventure.

I was awed by the friendliness of the Indian people. I met a man named Johnny who had three elephants, and he invited me to his home to visit them. Our ten-minute conversation ended with a Skype call to his brother so I could watch the elephants being fed.

Now THIS was the India I had travelled so far to experience! And this was the India I wanted to share with others. With you.

Today, I carefully curate and design tours that I know will immerse you in authentic culture and creative adventures.

Figuring all of this out on your own?

Trust me; It’d be endless hours of online research, tonnes of wasted time and way too much lost energy trying to find everything (without really knowing if you’re being ripped off.)

But with Red Door Tours?

All you need to do is pack your suitcase and prepare for an unforgettable journey!

(And if packing your suitcase stresses you out, we’ve got a solution for that too.)

Ready to unlock your next adventure and step into a new world of worry-free wanderlust?

A holiday I will never forget

 

I have just returned from a trip of a lifetime to Morocco.

Nicole enabled us to experience the magic that is Morocco with a well thought out itinerary that enabled the group to have many and varied adventures.

The accommodation was exceptionally good and being able to eat as the locals do was an absolute treat.

Many thanks Nicole and also to Mohammed and Hussein who gave me the opportunity to have a holiday I will never forget and to fall absolutely in love with Morocco.

I am already planning my next adventure with you Nicole.

A truely memorable experience

 

My trip to India ‘Textiles, Temples and Tastes of India’ was fabulous.

What I loved was that as well as seeing the spectacular treasures such as the Taj Mahal, we spent lots of time exploring everyday India.

Local laneways, shops and restaurants, flying about (sometimes eyes tight shut!) in tuk-tuks and meeting wonderful locals.

A truly memorable experience, thanks Nicole!

We felt very well looked after and totally safe

 

We have just completed an amazing tour, our first, with Red Door Tours.

The organiser, Nicole Farrell, is a truly fantastic Australian enthusiast who loves her travel and work in India and other perhaps less popular travel destinations.

Her knowledge of the area and connections made this a really magical trip and we would surely recommend Red Door Tours for the trip of a lifetime.

We have in the past travelled with some of the major companies in larger groups, and they were good, but Red Door operates small personal tours and covers far more attractions with great attention to detail.

The accommodation was excellent; unique, and in keeping with the era of India from bygone days.

Nicole and Imran offered so much on this tour it was amazing, and we can’t recommend Red Door Tours highly enough and hope we can do further trips with them in the future.
