Tours to Asia

Asia is one of the most absorbing and exhilarating continents. From the colourful Indian sub-continent in the west and through the countries of Indochina, to the vast cultural divide of the Far East, and the incredible landscapes and wildlife found in all, this is an unmissable destination. During our Asia trips, you can explore beautiful landscapes, soaring mountains, desert plains, hilltop forts, marbled palaces and stunning architecture, see animals in their natural habitats and visit an array of temples and pagodas fashioned by a wide diversity of religions.

Where to visit on tours to Asia

This is a continent of enticing and enigmatic countries that exert a profound fascination. Inspiring all curious travellers, visitors to Asia can experience India’s assault on the senses, the riverine serenity of cruising on the Mekong or the enervating and bustling cities of China.

Experience a sensory overload like no other during our tours to Japan. One of the most popular destinations amongst our Asia trips, this magical country really does have it all. Embrace bright lights, modern skyscrapers and delicious cuisine in Tokyo, before admiring colourful cherry blossom and striking mountain peaks away from the hustle and bustle.

Many of our escorted tours to Asia give you the opportunity to visit ancient architecture bursting with history. Explore the awe-inspiring temples that fill vibrant Bangkok, from the Golden Buddha of Wat Traimit to the White Marble Temple – Wat Benjamaborpitr. Then join us on a cruise along the famous River Kwai to see the iconic bridge, memorials and museums commemorating the prisoners of war.

Why go on escorted tours to Asia?

If you’re longing to explore Asia, escorted trips are one of the best ways to experience its true character. Not only will your experienced tour guide take you to the most iconic sites, but they will also introduce you to unknown spots rich in character and charm.

As you travel in a small group of like-minded travellers, you can enjoy a relaxed atmosphere as well as gaining knowledge from your guide. This allows you to ask any questions you may have about the local area.
