Asia offers a tantalising cornucopia of sights, sounds and smells that brings the senses alive. Imagine the stories you could share after exploring glorious temples, seeing spectacular landscapes, discovering historical relics and ruins, sampling culinary delicacies and gaining insights into local life.

As Asia travel experts with over 22 years’ experience, Insider Journeys specialise in bringing these stories to life through a range of expertly designed tours and packages across Asia.

We understand that everyone likes to travel differently and offer our customers three distinct styles of travel – Small Group Tours, River Cruises and Tailor Made itineraries designed to our customer’s specific requirements.

Our small group tours cover 11 countries in Asia including Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Burma, Thailand, China, India, Sri Lanka, Japan, Bhutan or Mongolia. They range from 6 to 21 days in duration and comprise of a maximum 16 likeminded travellers. All tours are escorted by a local English speaking guide with the added bonus of a Western tour leader on groups of seven or more passenger and provide a perfect balance between organised travel and your own personal down time to explore some of the world’s most beautiful and inspiring sites.

One of our most popular tours is the 10-day Highlights of Vietnam, which starts in Ho Chi Minh with a visit to the Cu Chi Tunnels and a fascinating trip along the Mekong Delta, venturing north to the former imperial capital of Hue, to the UNESCO world heritage listed historic seaside town of Hoi An, then cruising amidst the limestone formations in Halong Bay before finishing in the bustling capital of Hanoi, based in the charismatic old French Quarter. Departing weekly, the tour starts from $2460 per person twin share, and includes eight nights’ hotel accommodation, one night’s cruise accommodation, breakfast daily, three lunches and two dinners, two internal flights within Asia, entrance fees and a local English speaking guide.

For those who prefer the convenience of cruising, we offer an extensive range of River Cruising options in Burma, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, India and Myanmar (Burma).

Imagine waking up in a luxury floating hotel, taking in the picturesque views of fishing boats, riverside villages and tropical scenery from your spacious air conditioned cabin or balcony. All with the added benefit of unpacking once and the conveniences of a boutique hotel.

The five star Irrawaddy Explorer is one of our favourite cruises. The ship design reflects British colonial times and provides the ultimate way to experience Myanmar’s (Burma) breathtaking sights and lesser-visited villages. With a mere 28 elegant suites featuring private French balconies, this small cruiser is able to travel deep into Myamar providing passengers the opportunity to explore picturesque villages markets, pagodas and shrines with daily shore excursions.
