Why clients trust

accompanied tours led by me, with professional guides to assist
a niche company providing a truly personal service and attention to detail
unique insight, get to see what others miss with someone who has lived in SE Asia for many years
exclusivity, groups will be small, from 4 to 8 persons
Well now you can choose a different approach. I will work with you to create your own personalised itinerary. Since I have lived and worked in Asia for many years, I can suggest places most tourists won't see. You will be able to sample the full range and delights of the local cuisine. Perhaps you want to try street food, or choose from one of the many superb restaurants that we locals know. Where are the best places to go for drinks and enjoy a stunning view.
You can use the suggested itineraries on the website as a starting point, Amazing Thailand, Discover Vietnam, Explore SE Asia, Incredible India. You probably have some ideas of your own, perhaps consider adding one of the alternative places I have highlighted. It's not a problem. It would help me greatly if you can complete the short questionnaire I have provided. Once you have done this, we can arrange a call to discuss your proposed trip and take the first step to create your trip of a lifetime.
You can decide where you want to go, how long you wish to stay, which trips/activities interest you. Not everyone in a group always wants to do the same thing. I can arrange it so that one can have a spa day, another can try cooking, someone can go on a heritage cycle tour. Everyone can get what they want out of the trip. Just remember, you will be benefiting from the 20 years of detailed knowledge and experiences I have gained, from living, working, and travelling in SE Asia.
My service and commitment does not end there. To ensure an unforgettable trip, I will accompany you whilst you are in Asia, and arrange professional guides who will add to your enjoyment. The evenings will be free for you to relax and explore, I will be available to advise and assist you as necessary.

Some suggested itineraries for you to reflect on

Find out why Vietnam is becoming such a popular destination. Experience the history and cultural highlights, visit spectacular UNESCO World Heritage sites. Learn to love the food.
I was fortunate to get to know both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh during my time in Vietnam. They are so different but each offers its own attractions. Hanoi is the cultural capital, while Ho Chi Minh is a vibrant modern city. Trekking in Sapa was amazing, not just the scenery but meeting the different ethnic people. The overnight sleeper train from Hanoi to Sapa is a hoot!

An opportunity to see some of my favourite places in SE Asia, and give you a taste of what the region has to offer. You will get to spend time in Thailand and Vietnam, and discover the magic of Angkor Wat and Luang Prabang.
Luang Prabang is a UNESCO heritage site. It's a great place to meander through the streets at any time of the day. I have been to Angkor Wat on many occasions, each time I am bowled over by the awesome sight of these incredible temples.

Visiting such a vast and diverse country can be daunting. Let me guide you on a Northern India highlights journey that will leave you dazzled. You will see the Taj Mahal at dawn, the Golden Temple at Amritsar and be captivated by the beautiful cities of Rajasthan.
I always love returning to India, my parents are originally from Gujarat. The people are so friendly and curious. I love exploring the streets on foot, camera in hand, and taking in the energy and vibrant colours all around you.
