About Discover Travel Shop

Discover the World is a leader in global travel services and distribution, with over 30 years of experience and over 80 offices worldwide.

Discover the World incorporating Discover Travel Shop, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Discover the World which is based in Scottsdale Arizona. Discover the World commenced operation in South Africa in 1993 with a strong foothold in representing various prestigious clients which now include Princess Cruises, Variety Cruises, Swan Hellenic, Voyages of Discovery and Hebridean Island Cruises.

At Discover Travel Shop, we pride ourselves on our thorough understanding of cruising which enables us to tailor-make cruise and tour holiday packages to suit the most discerning traveller.  Our team of travel professionals can plan every component of your holiday to the finest detail, from flights, airport transfers, accommodation, to inspiring and unconventional cruise and touring holidays, to create an exceptional and unforgettable experience.

We understand that everyone’s idea of a holiday is different. Whilst there are some key, ‘must see’ sights in each destination, how you experience them is up to you.   We’ll work closely with you to create a holiday itinerary to suit your budget and style.   Whether your holiday includes a relaxing cruise or sun-drenched beaches, cultural immersion, historical interludes, nature’s scenic marvels, culinary sensations or adventurous thrills, either privately or shared with other like-minded travellers, our team will design a holiday just for you.

With our genuine understanding of cruising and our desire to create a holiday of a lifetime, we look forward to planning your next holiday with you.
