Are you ready to escape the TripAdvisor hordes yet?

You will if you with CleverDever Adventures. My Cultural Immersion Tours are hand-crafted to bring you the full scope of a culture, stopping places others can’t or don’t even know about.

What makes CleverDever Cultural Immersion Tours different?

Each Cultural Immersion Tour is skillfully curated by experiential travel expert, Juliana Dever, and our local guides. We personally visit every hotel, restaurant, activity, and meet every local, artisan, and family that you will. Just think of us as your personal international travel scouts.


You also get:

  • Slow Travel Style: Your itinerary is designed with enough free time to absorb every nuance, dig deep into a new culture, and enjoy the heck out of it
  • Authentic Meals and Time with Locals: Your meals are made with love, very often in the homes of locals. And the restaurants? We’ll never let you eat anywhere less than memorable.
  • Community-Based, Female-First Tourism: We’re always striving to DIRECTLY and positively impact the regions and people we visit. We also have a policy to work with women-owned businesses first.

“This has been the most magical week I could have imagined. Sometimes when you save and plan and sacrifice for something it’s hard for it to meet your expectations.

This was my first time to do ANYTHING like this and it blew my expectations out of the water.”

— Holly King
