The Stray Family

Each bus will have its own awesome driver who will educate and entertain you on your journeys, they are far more than your average bus driver, they are captains of their ship and the family it contains. While visiting all the same places other operators visit, Stray add a whole lot more on their routes, taking you to the hidden gems these countries keep tucked away, which more often than not are a far better experience than the usual box tickers you would want to go and see.

Support Local Operators

Sustainable tourism and working with a lot of family owned businesses is a cornerstone of how Stray operates. The experiences they offer are truly eye opening, unique and makes a good trip an awesome one.

In true Been & Seen style, we choose who we want to work with and if we do not rate them, we don’t map them, regardless of how much profit is at stake. With our most recent trip with Stray, also containing other travel agents from other companies, the overwhelming opinion from everyone, was this company simply does things better and is an absolute must for people who want flexibility and the keys to doors locked to many other tourists. Stray gets a huge thumb’s up from us!
