The World of Bestway Tours & Safaris

Founded in 1978, Bestway Tours & Safaris is one of the earliest established national tour operator in Canada serving North American and travellers from across the world. It was a venture started by three brothers who whilst all being born and brought up in Africa, had formative years of higher education in different countries of Asia and Europe. The experience we each had made us realise that there was considerable ignorance of the different cultures, people and countries in the world. We felt it was our mission to rectify this which led to the birth of Bestway Tours & Safaris. We put together Journeys delving into different aspects of a country: the great sites, historic monuments, natural beauty wildlife and, most importantly, the local people. We make you experience their customs first hand. From the eastern shores of Indochina across Southeast, South and Central  Asia, to the Middle East, Europe and the Americas - not forgetting, of course, the home continent of Africa. All this in small group tours to experience the culture and the people.
