Careers


Looking for your next career opportunity?

LivTours is a fast growing tour operator providing travel experiences in over 22 destinations across Europe. We are a small, highly productive team and despite being in business for over 10 years, still maintain a flexible and creative start-up vibe. 

We have a vision to reshape global tourism. We aim to break the common mold of what has largely become a mass-market, inflexible and impersonal industry.

By crafting unique and exclusive private and semi private (never more than 6 people) experiences, we can maintain our commitment to long term sustainability by supporting local suppliers and protecting the beautiful environments and cultures we operate in.

LivTours puts the human back in touring, with personalised, sustainable travel experiences that inspire and entertain.
