All the destinations we feature are made for touring and until now we’ve concentrated on private holidays that allow us to create the itinerary that’s right for each individual and allows maximum flexibility.

Looking at small group travel its strength is that is allows a more cost effective and socially inclusive way of exploring less accessible destinations that are slightly off the beaten track. With this in mind we’ll be starting a very limited number of flexible small group holidays (12 people of less) that will offer the best of both worlds.

Small Group - Private Holiday

Each holiday will be made up of a core 5-7 night small group touring element designed to experience a specific event, visit at a special time of year or get off the beaten track. For example it may be designed to coincide with rice harvests in the isolated hills on North Vietnam, a massive balloon festival that signals the end of the rainy season in Myanmar (Burma) or a week following the Mekong through the less visited parts of north Cambodia and southern Laos.

Whilst the group element concentrates on a specific region or event, we want to still offer you the flexibility to add on your choice of pre or post-holiday destinations that interest you. For example if the holiday travels overland through the North Vietnam hills you can easily add a few nights at the Angkor Temples before the holiday and a tour through central and southern Vietnam after. The aim is to offer you the best of both worlds, a hybrid of private and group travel that offers a full degree of flexibility and affordability to enjoy less accessible regions or events.
