Founded in 1981, and with over 500 tours in 120 countries to choose from, Explore Worldwide is one of the largest Adventure tour operators in the world. With expert itineraries, small group tours and even a customer loyalty scheme, it's no surprise they are award winning!
Our relationship with Explore has always been a special one, with many of our team originating from the Explore office itself. We have worked very closely for a number of years: from 3rd party development, building bespoke applications and developing and marketing numerous websites through the years.
Leading the way in Adventure Travel.
- We developed a CMS based on TravelZen to efficiently manage the huge amount of content required to run the Explore website.
- We created the first automated PDF itineraries running from the CMS data which saved thousands of man-hours that were being spent creating 'Trip Dossiers'.
- We were the first in the industry to introduce faceted search across live availability.
- We were the first in the industry to develop full end to end online booking - and with a 'green screen' back office system originating from the 1980s.
- We were the first to use image focal points to help reduce the massive effort required to crop thousands of images across the website.
- We developed an SEO strategy for them that helped them dominate the search engines for all the major Adventure Keywords.
We led the way in adventure travel websites for many years - sadly Explore's current website launched recently is not one of our creations. One day, perhaps they will return to Mr Zen so they can lead the way once again ;-)
