1. Vietnam:
This is a completely unique and spectacular itinerary of Vietnam that takes you off the beaten track and into the lesser-visited parts of the country. It is ideal for the adventurous and intrepid traveller as it includes cave treks including an overnight cave visit where you will camp in the cave for a night, and is faster moving than our other tours to ensure you see as much as possible. It is designed to give you an enormous insight into the lives of minorities within Vietnam where few travellers tread.

2. Georgia:

Georgia, a country at the intersection of Europe and Asia, is a former Soviet republic that’s home to Caucasus Mountain villages and Black Sea beaches. Whitewater rafting, mountain hiking, beachside biking, Georgia Grown trails, homegrown music & art festivals, signature breweries and wineries, local shops and boutiques, history and hospitality…there’s so much to experience in the Peach State.

3. Bulgaria:

Dive into adventure and discovery in one of Europe’s oldest countries, as we explore ancient civilizations and marvel at otherworldly relics of a communist utopia that never came to be. Discover a land of picturesque villages and stunning nature. From discovering the 70+ Rila Lakes to paragliding at Burgas beach, this country is as stunning as it is pocket-friendly and accessible!

4. SriLanka:

Beyond its ancient ruins, beautiful beaches, and amazing wildlife, the island nation of SriLanka has many other stories to uncover. This island of serendipity brings spiritual tranquillity and a chance to rediscover oneself. The beauty of this tiny island is simply breath-taking. Known for its enchanting ancient ruins, endless soft-sanded beaches, imposing mountains, colourful festivals, tempting water sports, dense wild-life, diverse ethnical groups, incredibly friendly locals and the country’s heady mix of British colonial heritage, make it a beguiling destination. The magical island of Sri Lanka is a runner’s dream and a photographer’s paradise with its combination of gentle lush landscape, fascinating culture, and a rich and varied wildlife!

5. Tunisia:

A trip to Tunis, the capital of Tunisia, equals a time travel expedition. The European style of the New Town or Ville Nouvelle, where French café culture sets the speed of the day, and the Belle Epoque architecture, which lines the ordered streets, sets the contrast to its historic backdrop. Medina Quarter of Tunis is the perfect flavour of rich cultural history with its 700+ monuments- palaces, mosques, mausoleums, madrasas and fountains, dating back to the Almohad and Hafsid times!
