Are you ready to discover a changing world?


Why do you go away?

To move, to breathe, to fly, to gain all while you give, to roam the roads of lands remote...

To travel is to live, and we're here to help you come back home with new and improved eyes and extra colors.

Because to us, one’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.


Mother Nature Hosts Our Travels. Let's Do It Consciously, Responsibly and Right.

Virtual Travel Advising

Some trips aren't as quite as involved as complete custom itineraries. We offer on-hand and on-demand travel support and a la carte travel services to help guide your travel planning (or rebooking) process.

Custom Trip Design

We take the time to get to know you and your trip goals in order to design and curate a personalized trip from A to B to Z.

Private Local Tours

Our Guides, passionate and engaged locals, are ready to lead you on a unique adventure, sharing insights and experiences you may otherwise miss. 

Group Trips

From planning tools to touchless technology, we offer our insights and help coordinate custom trips that satisfy different budgets and preferences. We also run our own specialized seasonal trips!


As world travel and tourism begins to recover from the coronavirus crisis and prepare for Delta-variant travel, ZI shares a global mission: to place local economies and responsibility at the forefront of travel's new future.

We Love Our Community!

When you visit a new place you want to feel the vibes of the city. You want to find all of the small and hidden gems. You want to meet the local people and hear amazing stories. The best restaurants, bars, views, and experiences. Take my word for it... finding all of those things by yourself is impossible. That is why we use ZI anytime we travel and look forward to working with the team on our first trip to Japan. If you want to spend time with an amazing company and really understand and love a city, call ZI.

A Few Words About Our Company

It all started in 2003 when our Founder, Lauren, moved to Tokyo, Japan and became enamored by its people, culture and way of life. This passion then expanded to exploring other parts of Asia, and when the Rio Games came around and the Tokyo Games were announced, a vision of connecting the West and East through educational and transformational travel was born.

Now, our team is on a mission to help the world do so responsibly.
