Whatever style of journey is right for you, Insider Journeys aims to make sure that it is the holiday you remember for a lifetime. Whether you want a flop and drop beach break or cultural exploration, Insider Journeys will help you find the right combination of tailor-made private touring, travelling as part of an intimate small group and cruising some of Asia’s greatest rivers to create your ideal trip.
Our tailor-made collection caters for the independent traveller, who seeks a real experience of Asia, just as we do. We cover an extensive range of travel alternatives, from indulgences in luxury hotels to budget city accommodation, beach escapes to mountain adventures. Our local experts have travelled extensively throughout the region, handpicking hotels and resorts and crafting unique itineraries along the way. We’ve already done the hard work, yet we’ve left the control in your hands. Rather than showcase every hotel in town, we’ve chosen the ones we know and trust, and designed experiences to include highlight attractions as well as uncover the real Asia for a genuine and memorable experience of the country.
Travelling as part of a small group gives you peace of mind, knowing everything is taken care of so you can get on with making the most of your holiday. Our acclaimed Western tour leader and expert local guide teams, will accompany you the whole way to give you their unique perspective and ensure everything runs like clockwork. You’ll also get to share your experience with fellow like-minded travellers, and make some new friends along the way. With an average of 12, and a guaranteed maximum of only 16 travellers, we don’t do “bus tours”, we do Small Group Journeys. Exclusive to our Small Group Journeys are our Insider Experiences, which we’ve crafted to really get you under the skin of your destination, many of which simply cannot be accessed or replicated without the insider knowledge of our expert guides.
Imagine waking up in a floating boutique hotel and feasting your eyes on the scenic views as you welcome a brand new day. Cruise along Asia’s enchanting rivers, and gain a deeper insight into the history and culture of the local people living by the river on our fleet of luxury small river boats. Check in to your luxurious cabin and unpack just once, and let all the sights and sounds come to you, with the conveniences of a boutique hotel at your fingertips. Enjoy impeccable service, spacious and air-conditioned cabins with private balconies on most cruises, and on-board facilities including restaurants and bars, sundecks, and in many cases spas and swimming pools. On shore, explore small villages and markets to experience an authentic Asia as you sail to places that larger ships can’t reach.
China has fascinated Western travellers such as Marco Polo for centuries. Immense in every respect, China offers the fascinating history and cultural gems of Beijing and Xian, the stunning scenery of Guilin, Yunnan, the famous Yangtze River, and the hustle and bustle of Shanghai and Hong Kong. Now is the time to discover China as she races to dominate the 21st century.
Tibet, the rooftop of the world, has long fascinated travellers. The awesome high-altitude scenery of snowcapped mountains, turquoise lakes and deep valleys is amongst the wildest and most beautiful in the world. Add to this the charming and inspiring Tibetan people and their unique and spiritual culture, and it's easy to see why Tibet is considered one of Asia's most remarkable destinations.
Hong Kong, the cosmopolitan gateway to southern China, has long held a reputation as a shopping mecca. There's much more to Hong Kong than retail therapy, however; make sure to allow enough time to ride the famous Star Ferry and admire the panoramic views of China's mainland from Victoria Peak. Explore Stanley's seaside sights and central's antique district, stroll through Kowloon's backstreets and nibble on the local delicacy, dim sum (yum cha). Families (or the young at heart), be sure to enjoy Hong Kong's Disneyland, or if you want to experience Portugal's colonial-era history take the Jetcat ferry to Macau. The amazing variety of experiences on offer means that every traveller will be captivated by Hong Kong.
