THA Wat Chai_WMFButterfield & Robinson, the world’s premier active travel company, adds to its portfolio of exclusive and educational trips to the world’s most treasured places in partnership with World Monuments Fund (WMF), the foremost non-profit organization devoted to the preservation of cultural heritage sites around the world.

Combining the education and exclusivity of WMF with the experiential travel and cultural immersion for which B&R has long been known, the two organizations have released new trips that feature behind-the-scenes tours and insider access to some of the world’s most treasured sites, including China’s Forbidden City, Cambodia’s Angkor Wat and Rome’s Palazzo Farnese.

“With a motto like, ‘Slow down to see the world,’ we’ve genuinely believed in and practiced the virtues of responsible and sustainable tourism for decades,” says B&R President Norman Howe. “We believe in going in deep and off the beaten path to reveal a destination’s true character and send our travellers home enlightened, so the partnership with the WMF was a natural fit.”

Designed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of WMF, the new trips journey through Rome, China, Myanmar, Cambodia and Paris, adding to the list of recent and popular experiences in London and Andalucia.
