Tour Tips

  • Luxury travel doesn’t have to mean lounging travel. Many luxury trips include active elements, such as skiing. 
  • A ‘label’ doesn’t always equate to a good experience. In fact going on a luxury tour usually means you’re staying in hidden treasures, rather than large luxury chains.
  • Be aware of what’s included. Many luxury tours, and especially cruises, are all inclusive, but not all.

Stunning and unforgettable experience !

Classic India

Four of us travelled together, and everyone had different favourite moments. For me, Varanasi was a stunning and unforgettable experience -- from witnessing the celebration of a religious festival to experiencing the chaos of the street life. It was India in a microcosm: history, life & death, colours, noise, mystery, diversity. In contrast, our peaceful evening eating dinner with a family in Jaipur who opened their home to us was every bit as wonderful as any of the sites. They were welcoming, interesting and gracious. And the homemade meal was a bonus.

Guidance through the visa process was quite helpful.

Almost all of the accommodations were first-rate. Ahilya Fort, Dera Mandawa and Sarai at Toria stood out because they were small, and each had a uniquely personal touch. The Fort was in a great location -- adjacent to the town and the river -- yet quiet with amazing rooms and views of the river. We were able to go down to the river early in the morning and see the town come to life. The rooms at Dera Mandawa were beautiful, the staff amazingly attentive. Again, although we were in a city, the hotel was a peaceful refuge. Sarai was a surprising spot next to Panna, again with interesting and helpful owners and staff. If you found places like these throughout India, I would forget about staying the in big five-star hotels.

Kaush, our guide beginning in Indore, was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive to our needs and interests. He handled the logistics of meeting local guides, porters, local drivers and dozens of other details flawlessly. In a disorganized country, he was a model of organization. We knew we were in good hands, start to finish.

A guide he engaged in Khajuraho to take us through the temples stood out as a brilliant and interesting individual. Everyone loved him.

We had such a wonderful time on this tour, every day was filled with interesting sightseeing, amazing food and so many new experiences! We were a group of 16 and our guide, Mr Wahab Khan (aka Mani Ji) really helped get the group together, he was excellent, very knowledgeable about the sites we visited. The itinerary was perfect, we fitted in so many experiences and everything went as planned. The highlight of the tour would have been visiting the Taj Mahal - one which we will never forget!
Having coffee on the mountains of Khimsar and waiting for the sunrise!

Our group leader was fantastic and made this trip really special for us. He took really great care of everyone and took note of all our small requests...it is the small things that matters and he was superb at it!

It was a great break. Starting in Marrakech which was really frantic and intense, we then moved to the mountains and stayed in the most fantastic gite in the mountains which were stunning and then a final couple of days in a place called Essaouira which was stunning and chilled.
Such a great mix, the tour in Marrakech was great and we went to some really interesting places we might of missed if the tour wasn't guided.
The walk in the mountains was amazing.
There were a few of these to be honest. The mountain hike (walk) was beautiful almost every other step was a new stunning photo opportunity.

He was fantastic, he was passionate about Morocco he gave us great advice about where to eat and what to avoid. He told us of all the good work that Exodus was doing to provide responsible tourism and how tourism had helped not only him but Morocco as a country.
He was great.

Make sure you find out how to use a an Arabic toilet (it wrong footed me)

It was a great holiday that I would happily recommend to anyone.

Very varied and interesting trip that gave a good flavour of the country. The addition of a couple of days in Angkor was a bonus.
The areas I enjoyed most were Halong Bay, Hoi An and the Mekong delta. The cities were fascinating but frenetic. Seeing the central towers at Angkor Wat was a definite "wow" moment

Both group leaders ( Vietnam and Cambodia) were very knowledgeable and passionate about their countries.

Take an overnight bag for the trips to Halong Bay and the Mekong delta. Expect to take hundreds of photos!

Fascinating trip that I would thoroughly recommend. Details of the recent history with France and the US were sobering but an essential part of a visit to this region.

Luxury Travel Trips & Tour Advice

Luxury travel could mean staying a five-star hotel in Europe, a beautiful resort on the Indian Ocean, or a luxurious tented campground on an African safari. It could mean traveling aboard a specially outfitted train, a deluxe river or small cruise ship or even by bicycle, as long as meals, lodging and support is top notch. Many tour operators offer luxury group tours or will plan one exactly to your specifications.

Private Tours and "Backstage Access"

Luxury doesn’t have apply just to the accommodation style. It also means high caliber, exclusive tour experiences, such as an after hours tour of the Vatican or a wine tasting in Burgundy hosted by the winemaker himself. These types of tours are an amazing way to get some one-on-one time with experts in their fields, ask questions, and gain insight into some of the worlds most impressive sights you might otherwise miss if surrounded by crowds.

Villas, Resorts, and Glamps

Accommodation is one of the largest considerations on a luxury tour. While many budget or mid-range tours tend to opt for a basic style, luxury tours take their accommodation seriously. From beachside resorts to glamping, luxury accommodation is something to write home about. 

Feel the timelessness of Europe in a villa getaway. Nothing beats waking up to rolling hills of vineyards and roaming the rustic grounds. Feel like a local as visit nearby markets for fresh produce, and enjoy watching the world go by as you lingering over a coffee in a classic European cafe. 

Beach resorts are some of the most popular luxury getaways. Take a dip in crystal clear blue water, and enjoy lounging in the shade, feeling the warm breeze on a private stretch of beach. 

The relatively new concept of “glamping,” that is luxury camping, it’s actually quite a great way to be close with nature without having to rough it. And glamping destinations are becoming increasingly popular. Get the best of both worlds.
