In 1983 Rufus Reade set up the Edinburgh based carpet shop, The Nomads Tent which involved regular trips to Turkey to source rugs for his new business. These travels led to his first tour in 1987 to Eastern Turkey.
Rufus Reade has been planning, organising and leading small tours since then, fuelled by a love of travel, an insatiable curiosity and the pleasure of sharing his discoveries with his travelling companions. The tours are conceived as a way of bringing individuals together to share the journey. Be prepared for the unexpected, with an emphasis on getting to know the country in the broadest possible way. Our theme is a way to see the country but does not restrict us to a narrow vision. This website aims to show something of the diversity we can expect in any of the countries we visit.
