Our Journeys Explained
Every one of our guests is an individual, which is why we offer different ways to travel with us.
Read on to discover more about our Small Group Journeys and Private Journeys, and the types of tours we offer.
Small Group Journeys
Small Group Journeys
Travelling in a small group not only gives you a more personalised and intimate way to explore a country, but you’ll also be travelling with like-minded people from Australia, New Zealand and the UK. Our group size averages 15 guests with a maximum of 25, and they are made up of solo travellers, people travelling with friends or as couples. There is nothing like being able to share your stories and experiences with a group of people, this opens up another new and exciting perspective to explore. A small intimate group provides you with the chance to experience deeper personalised interactions. You could find yourself meditating alongside Burmese monks, sampling wines in a centuries-old Sicilian cellar or visiting the dressing rooms of a traditional Kathakali dance troupe in southern India.

Tour Manager :– Our Tour Managers are extraordinary people whose organisational and management skills are only matched by their travel experience. Their enthusiasm and genuine love of the regions they are working in, combined with their first-hand and extensive regional knowledge – all contribute to your holiday experience. On most tours you are also accompanied by specialist local guides who are keen to share their extensive regional knowledge and love of the places you visit. Our journeys provide you with the opportunity to develop a strong connection with the destination and its people.

Comfortable vehicles :– We use buses appropriate to the group size, with airconditioning where this facility is available. On rail journeys groups are booked in the best available class on the train.

Accommodation :– Generally we use first class 4- or 5-star hotels, or the best available on our tours. You can read more about our accommodation styles in the ‘Tour Styles’ section below.
Expert Local Guides
Private Journeys
We recognise group travel isn’t for everyone, no matter how small the group, which is why we offer almost all of our journeys on a private basis too. You can see each destination at your own pace. We will hand craft your private journey from start to finish and we can tailor the pace of travel to suit your specific needs. You choose who travels with you, perhaps you’d like to discover with friends, family or maybe you’d like a personalised experience, the choice is yours. You pick the date and time and we’ll make it happen. Private travelling is all about you!.

Local support :– From the moment you arrive, you will be met by one of our representatives who will accompany you to your hotel. In addition to the contact information given to you by our office, this representative will give you relevant local contact numbers, ensuring you have peace of mind throughout your trip.

Transport :– For most road journeys, you will have your own car with driver, allowing you to travel in comfort, and within reason, make impromptu stops and minor detours. Most cars are air-conditioned however you will be advised in advance if this is not the case.

Private guides :– You will be accompanied by your own English-speaking local guide for all sightseeing excursions, ensuring your personal preferences and interests are fully accommodated.

Travel at your own pace :– Our Private Journeys are relatively flexible, enabling you to determine, within reason, your start time each day.

Accommodation :– There is flexibility in your accommodation styles and you can upgrade where available. You can read more about our accommodation styles in the ‘Tour Styles’ section below.

Tour Styles
Whether you’re taking a Small Group Journey or a Private Journey, you can rest assured you are in good hands and will always receive the highest quality of service. Taking into account the style of travel and standard of accommodation, our journeys are divided into four broad categories:

Discovery Journeys :– The nature of these journeys takes you off the beaten track, so although we always feature the best accommodation available, it can be quite basic. You may also find yourself travelling through rough terrain and making treks.

Standard Journeys :– On these journeys accommodation is in affordable lead-in 4-star hotels.

Superior Journeys :– Most of our journeys fall into this category. Accommodation is generally 4- or 5-star hotels, lodges, camps or unique local lodgings.

Luxury Journeys :– These indulgent tours involve deluxe 5-star accommodation throughout the entire journey. Some Superior Journeys have Luxury departures with upgraded accommodation.
