Passionate experts in creating private tours and immersive experiences since 2009



Who We Are

We are Travel Curious, an international team of history buffs, travel junkies and tech geeks who believe in a better way to travel.

We believe that to Travel Curious means to unlock the potential of a destination- to have the courage to lose sight of the shore in order to discover new oceans. This means ditching the map, the rigid schedule, the ‘should-do’ list, and instead being led by whimsy as you are carried away by the local current. By becoming immersed in the local culture, and by accumulating an understanding of the place you are in, travel inevitably becomes a more fulfilling and experiential journey.

Our Story

In 2009, founder Alex Grant was living and working in Rome as a tour guide. Alongside another forward-thinking guide, Alex started a tour company, which provided intimate, private tours tailored to customers’ unique requests. As his model of bespoke tours caught on, Alex realised a technology-enabled model of his idea could be applied well across myriad cities and destinations, and thus Travel Curious was born.

Fast-forward a decade and the fast-growing team is situated in Shoreditch, a location vibrantly melding the past with the new. Our offices are based off Curtain Road–a lively, storied, street in London’s illustrious history. We have a Banksy a stone’s throw from our window and the remains of James Burbage’s The Theatre across the street, where Shakespeare used to perform five centuries ago.

At Travel Curious, we integrate the tales of our surroundings’ history into our own story.


We look forward to being your tours and activities partner
