Our Partners

On the ground

We work with some long established companies in the Far East and collectively our aim is to provide clients with a first class service ensuring that you will have a comfortable and memorable journey as you travel through the region.

On arrival you will met by our representative at the airport and, unless you specify otherwise, you will be accompanied by an English speaking local guide when you are touring. Local guides will be on hand to offer advice and assistance when necessary as well as provide you with all the information you need to ensure a successful and interesting trip. When touring your local guide will change from city to city and from region to region unless you would like a permanent escort throughout your itinerary in which case please let us know at the time of enquiry.

In combination with our partners we pride ourselves on being able to show you the real Far East. Take the opportunity to meet the locals and involve yourself in hands on cultural experiences such as cooking, martial arts, painting and home visits. A trip to the Far East is about experiencing the rich culture first hand so please let us know what you would like to do and we will do our very best to arrange it for you.

Hotels

Hotels throughout the Far East vary in standard and the number of stars that a hotel may be awarded locally may not necessarily tally with international standards. To avoid any confusion we have chosen to categorize our carefully selected hotels into Medium, Superior and Deluxe classes.

Medium class hotels equate to Western standard 3 star hotels or some local 4 star hotels. Superior Hotels fall roughly into the good 4 star range and Deluxe hotels will be the very best 4 star or 5 star hotels.

When choosing a hotel we will usually look at the Medium or Superior range, unless you tell us otherwise. Our ‘house' style is for smaller hotels with local character that are in a good location.
