Asia has been confirmed as the next frontier for Back-Roads Touring, with the expansion coming on the back of its best year to date.
The small group tour operator has added eight new journeys across Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam to its program. They will kick off in September this year.
Australia and New Zealand country manager Dennis Basham said the news comes as the operator celebrates its strongest year to date in 2017, thanks to the success of its Europe and UK tours.
The new offering has been created to respond to market demands and customer feedback, he explained.
“We know mature travellers have an interest in exploring South-East Asia in a small group setting, but in the past there have been few opportunities to do so with a company they know and trust,” he said.
“Our tours provide the perfect combination of guided introductions to experiences and sites along with opportunities to explore the destination at leisure.”
The tours will focus on showing guests a different, lesser-known side of each destination and will incorporate “one-of-a-kind experiences that are usually reserved for locals”.
These include a visit to an elephant rehabilitation centre in Chiang Mai and a traditional lunch with Buddhist nuns in Vietnam.
Guests will benefit from Back-Roads’ experienced guides that will lead the journeys, according to Basham.
The new itineraries include Bangkok & The River Kwai, Temples of Thailand and Cambodia, Wonders of Thailand, Hanoi & Halong Highlights, Vietnam Adventure, Vietnam and Cambodia Discovery and Flavours of Vietnam. too
