About Us | The Dragon Trip

Who are The Dragon Trip?

We expand minds through transformative travel experiences.

It’s about being open-minded, meeting new people, sharing genuine experiences and living life like the locals. These are the values that we live by at The Dragon Trip. Everything we do  – from researching trips to running them  – aims to give our ‘Dragons’ a truly authentic taste of the eye-opening places we visit. From camping under the stars on the Great Wall of China to becoming sushi-making experts in Tokyo’s fish market.

Our core values:

  • We unite global citizens through meaningful adventures
  • We show a real side of life, through deeply researched and safe trips
  • We support local communities through sustainable and ethical travel
  • We are a dynamic, diverse and solution-orientated force for good and our teams encourage trust and growth
  • Lovingly curated by passionate travellers for passionate travellers.

History of The Dragon Trip:

Within our first 5 years as a company, we had already welcomed over 4,000 people on life-changing adventures across Asia – and we’ve not stopped growing since.

Our diverse groups now consist of budget backpacking tours (including the young and young-at-heart), family tours, and student groups from some of the world’s most prestigious schools and universities. Since trip 1, our goal has always been to deliver on our promise of authentic, insightful and unforgettable travel.

We’ve seen hundreds of 5-star reviews, countless life-changing experiences (including 2 engagements!) and been featured in media far and wide. Our friendly team – now over 20-strong – are from 7 different countries, speak 11 languages, and are located in our offices in Shanghai, London and Boston. We are also proud to introduce our sub-brand: The Learning Adventure. The Learning Adventure runs top of the class school trips in the UK, Italy, Spain, France alongside our Asian destinations: China, Japan, Korea and plenty more. Plus we also have a brand focusing on group tours in the USA called The Coyote Trip.
