Single tours

Many of our tours have ‘single’ departures, providing single travellers with the opportunity of travelling with other singles. The itineraries and conditions are identical to our other tours but there will be no couples. Check out our Single tours here.

Festival tours

Make that trip extra special by opting for a ‘festival’ departure and witness some of the world’s most interesting and enjoyable local festivities! These include elephant parades in Sri Lanka, the ancient Inca festival Inti Raymi in Peru and the Songkran water festival in Thailand. Enjoy uplifting music, colourful dancers and artists, traditional cuisine and above all have lots of fun!
