Visiting exotic far flung places around the South East Asian, North East Asian and Indian sub-continent countries, our group tours strike a balance between well-planned itineraries which include key highlights and spare time to do your own thing as well. We include unique travel experiences and there’s lots of real local interaction too, giving you a true flavour of the countries you visit. We organize everything to make your holiday seamless; your transportation, complimentary airport transfers, sightseeing, guiding and some meals. Your tour will be lead by our expert and passionate tour leaders. Captivating, informative and caring, they will ensure your holiday is fun and hassle-free.
Travelling with us, you'll get your horizons broadened in more ways than one! Our groups tours attract a wide range of English speaking nationalities from all over the world and lasting friendships are often formed.
Whether it's sampling the local cuisine, socialising with the locals at a ceremony or getting around on novel modes of transport, our tours offer plenty of authentic experiences.
Expert local guides
What makes our trips really special is our expert local tour leaders and guides, who accompany you all day-to-day activities, hotel check-ins and they will give you lots of useful local pointers and tips too.
Free time to explore
While you'll spend a lot of time on tour with your travelling companions, there'll be plenty of opportunity for you to head off on your own adventure and explore your new surroundings.
Lots of flexibility
Our trips follow set itineraries and we've built in added flexibility to suit you; arrive a day early, stay an extra day, upgrade some services or add-on some extras from our range of bolt-ons.
Great group sizes
Typical group size is 12-14 travellers which really works well and makes for a fun experience for all. On special 'festival' departures group sizes are larger due to the nature of these events.
For most tours, we use European standard private transportation. On some trips and areas, we use a bit of public transport too which is a great way to get a feel for the country you are visiting.
A wide age range
We believe that age is no barrier to travel and our tours suit travellers of varying ages, upwards from mid-twenties to around sixty, which makes for a really fun, unique and eclectic group mix.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to get a Visa for my trip?
Obtaining any requisite visas for your travels is the responsibility of the traveller. Our detailed essential trip information outlines visa and immigration conditions for several nationalities, though it is ultimately your responsibility to check that this information is still current leading up to your trip. Please contact us if you require any supporting documentation or information in obtaining your visa. And don’t leave it to the last minute! Some visas can takes weeks to procure.
Do I need to take travel insurance?
Yes! No ifs, no buts. If you want to travel with us you must have taken out a comprehensive travel insurance policy. As much as we may strive to exude a cool, devil-may-care attitude much of the time, this is something we are 100% serious about. At a minimum, your policy must cover medical costs in case of hospitalisation, emergency travel and repatriation. And if you are going on one of our more active trips, you must make sure your policy covers you for this activity ie. cycling. We would also highly recommend taking cancellation cover at the time of booking your trip, because if you suddenly need to cancel your trip once you have paid your deposit or full payment, certain fees will apply. We’re so serious about all this that you’ll need to provide your trip leader with a copy of your policy – showing the policy and emergency hotline phone numbers – at the first group meeting. If you rock up without one, we’ll be leaving without you.
How much baggage can I take?
The lighter you can pack the better as no one wants to be bogged down by their luggage. Most airlines have a maximum luggage allowance of 20kg, however, on some domestic flights that are included in our tours you may only be able to travel with 7-10kg. If you can fit all that you need in a compact suitcase that weighs between 10-20kg then you will be fine on the vast majority of our tours. On some trip types you will be better off travelling with a backpack instead of a suitcase. Speak to our support team for more details.
Do you cater for dietary requirements?
You'll find a variety of meals included on our tours - it could be daily breakfast or welcome dinners at local restaurants. We will always do our best to accommodate the needs of our travellers but in more remote and out-of-the-way places this is not always possible. We ask that anyone with a dietary requirement or food allergy inform our team at time of booking so that we have plenty of time to organize food and meals accordingly. Handy tip - when you arrive in destination, ask your tour leader to write down your dietary requirements in the local language so that you can make yourself clearly understood when eating out away from the group.
What room types are available?
Our trips are organised on a twin share basis with the option to book a single room for sole use. If you are travelling as a couple or pair of friends/family, you have the choice of a twin room (two single beds in one room) or a double room (one big bed in the room). If you are a solo traveller and happy to share then you will be paired up with another solo traveller of the same sex in a twin room. Alternatively, you can pay the single supplement and have a single room to yourself. Depending on the destination a single room could have a single bed or a double bed for sole occupancy.
I'm a solo traveller - will I have to pay more?
On the majority of our tours we run a non-compulsory single supplement, which means we'll pair you up with another solo traveller of the same sex so you don't have to pay any supplements. We even have a number of tours with departures on which you can have your own room at no extra cost.
Can I extend my trip or arrive earlier?
We offer pre and post tour accommodation on all our trips so you can spend more time in the start and end destinations. We also offer a range of short stays that can be combined with our group tours for a more tailored holiday experience. You can find prices and details of this on our tour pages.
How many people will be on my trip?
It depends on the tour but generally speaking our group sizes average 12-14 passengers. For instance, our Active Travel tours have a maximum group size of 12 while our Classic Journeys have a maximum of 14. The time of year affects traveller numbers so if you prefer a smaller group size then consider low season travel. Our special festival departures run with larger group numbers due to the one-off nature of the events though often we'll run two separate groups to ensure numbers are manageable.
Will I get much free time on my trip?
When travelling with us you'll spend the days out sightseeing and enjoying lots of authentic cultural experiences. We work our itineraries so that there's always at least an hour or two each day for travellers to unwind. In some destinations we also include a day or two at leisure for you to enjoy the place as you wish. It'll always be somewhere with lots of offer, whether that's a beach location providing sun, sea and sand, or a scenic spot where outdoor activities abound.
Who is a typical group tour traveller?
Our tours attract a diverse mix of people and appeal to travellers of all ages, from those in their mid 20s to those in their early 70s. You could be a solo adventurer or a couple, travelling with friends or family members across the generations. Our travellers mainly come from English-speaking countries around the world from Australia and New Zealand to America and Canada, the UK and South Africa. However, there's one thing that unites our travellers and that's a thirst for adventure and a keen interest in learning about new cultures.
