Many of Southeast Asia's quintessential landscapes have been shaped by water from the striking karst islands of Halong Bay to the densely populated Mekong Delta with hundreds of islands dotting the Gulf of Thailand. The region has played host to countless cultures spanning the centuries from the Khmer Kings and their legacy of the spectacular temples of Angkor to the Thai kingdoms heavily influenced by Buddhism. Today a number of hill tribes and ethnic groups hold onto their distinct customs, language and traditions from the giraffe-like Kayan people to the colourful Hmong.

Discover why the journey can be just as enjoyable as the destination in Southeast Asia on one of our comfortable group tours, exclusive private journeys or bespoke tailor-made holiday.

Southeast Asia tour reviews

Our tour of Vietnam was terrific - due in large part to our tour guide, Hung Do. Hung is the best guide I have experienced anywhere. Here are some of the things he did that made the trip terrific. Within about 5 minutes he knew who we all were (19 of us) and where we were from. It was clear he had studied in advance. He was exceptionally well organised; he always reminded us of the plan for the next day, where we would be, what the weather report was, what to bring, and challenges ahead. And he repeated the information to be sure we all had it!

His knowledge of history and geography of the country is excellent. And his personal stories added to the richness of the experience. Hung is highly proficient in English; he always made himself clear and was able to answers all questions. He would be a wonderful model for other guides in this area! Hung was always available for questions and trouble-shooting. Even when we didn't realise he was around (e.g., at dinners), I found him in the background making sure all was ok - e.g., orders were understood, food needs were respected, etc. Hung's personal touches were so appreciated. He checked on how people were feeling, made sure we had water, planned in advance to address any potential challenges, and made individual recommendations to help us planning each day. Finally (though I could go on and on) Hung's sense of humor and friendly personality made long days of touring lighter. He was engaging and remarkably up-beat throughout all 10 days. Please extend my sincere thanks to Hung for a wonderful, memorable trip through Vietnam. ”
