We have but two overriding goals in our company. To build a team of people who love what they do AND to create beautiful experiences for our guests, experiences that they think back to fondly again and again, and tell their friends about. We are proud that in the past year [2016 at the time of writing] all of our travelers have either been repeat customers or been referred to us by existing customers.

"Our trip with On the Road was a very personalized, individual road trip in China, where we felt we saw the real China, off the beaten track, on back roads, where you see whats's really happening in very remote areas of beautiful China."

Private journey in Yunnan
"We visited a Tibetan family near the Sumtseling Monastery where there is a lady of some 80 years of age. She was very warm to people and I remember she showed me her medications because I’m a doctor. She took me to her private temple and prayed for me. In a lifetime of travelling experience, these encounters are very, very rare. Natural, scenic beauty, anyone can see, but such real people encounters, they are very very rare and special."

“What was quite interesting, before the trip, I remember, I didn’t think we’ll need the devices, but then the children said “Can we pack this, and that and all that?”, and I did, and I packed the computer and the iPad, and put it into a small luggage, and it never came out from the beginning to the end of trip, no one asked for it… they were so occupied, every single minute, they were happy exploring, looking at things, no one asked for anything, I was so happy!”

"The whole team, incredible attention to detail, being introduced to the cars, and finding the small umbrella in the glove compartment in order to get to the big umbrellas in the back of the car, that was really something, now that’s attention to detail. When we stopped for coffee, it’s not just any old coffee...but it’s really, really good coffee. Small details like that, they thought through every aspect…”

"I must admit that I didn't really believe the photos that you sent around before the trip – the women in traditional clothes on the side of the street, the green fields stretching for miles – but it was all there and all amazing. The best thing of all for us was that, while we didn't have to think at all about the details of the trip, we never once felt pressured or over-organized. The "tour" was really just a comfortable group of great people to share the trip with…"

And since we’re quoting others, the following applies to On the Road as well: ‘The small things are what makes perfection, but perfection is by no means a small thing.'"
