No Two Journeys Have Ever Been The Same

We are experts in organising bespoke holidays to Asia. We have in-depth knowledge and experience of this stunning continent, so you can trust us to plan a unique and memorable holiday for you. We recognise how the changing seasons can influence the scenery and wildlife, meaning we can expertly create your holiday to make sure your journey is the best it can be. Whether you’re travelling as a couple, a family or with friends, our unrivalled attention to detail will ensure that your tailor made, luxury holiday to Asia is one you never forget.

What makes us different?

From the outset we have always been involved in philanthropy and in particular Philanthropic Travel, supporting deserving, usually small, “sharp-end” conservation and community projects since our inception in 1989. In an age of increasing awareness about world issues and global needs there has been a growing trend towards “travel philanthropy” or, more simply put, using travel as a means to give back. The problem, however, is the overwhelming potential scope and, at the same time, making sure that promises are turned into reality. Our inchoate new offshoot, Philanthropy Plus, gives individuals who are eager to reconnect and help those less fortunate than themselves the opportunity to do just that as a core feature of their travel plans: thus travelling to - and directly experiencing as part of their holiday, safari or vacation – places and projects where they may be directly able to help.
