Travel Style Travel Style Relaxed A lot of free time, with very few inclusions. Ideal for independent and/or low-key travelers and cruisers.
Full on For those looking to maximize their sight seeing time. You thrive on a packed day’s schedule from 8 am to 6pm, with some (but limited) free time. Most activities and meals included.
Mixed You will have solid amounts of both free time and structured time with some activities and meals included.

Trip Type Trip Type Group Tour Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
Small Group Tour Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
River Cruise These vessels are smaller than most ocean cruisers, limiting which amenties are available. Passenger counts can vary. One of the biggest advantages of a river cruise is the ability to dock at smaller ports and local villages.
Small Ship Cruise Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.
Private Guided Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
Self Guided / Independent Tour A travel company plans your itinerary and arranges all the logistics including lodging, local activities, and transportantion. You have the flexibility of a solo trip while still getting the convience and time savings of expert planning. Get 90% of the benefits of a tour, without a guide.
Vacation / Holiday Package Similar to a self guided tour, this usually involves a home base, such as a hotel or resort, with packaged activities and day tours as a part of the stay.
Large Ship Cruise This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.

Itinerary Focus

Lodging Level Lodging Level Camping Typically involves most nights sleeping in tents (sometimes permanent tented sites) or in rustic cabins and lodges.

From the day we flew out till we landed home, the holiday was very organised. Everyone who were involved were fabulous and very friendly. We were made to feel welcome everywhere we went and nothing was too much for the team. Our first guide was Arthur. He was amazing, friendly, funny, hospitable and very knowledgeable on all aspects regarding Sabah and Borneo. All daily itinerary were spot on and each day were full of activities, from relaxing to historical visits. The homestay was lovely. Ismail was our host and made us very welcome into his home. He had 2 volunteers from Canada and California there for 2 weeks too. I can’t stress enough how fantastic Arthur was during our time with him and his driver, min, was also fabulous. It was a shame to say goodbye to Arthur as he handed us over to the driver who took us to Sandakan.

Our second guide was Ronald. He too was fantastic and was very passionate about his work. He specialized in all butterflies but mostly concentrated on endemic butterflies in Borneo. His knowledge during our time with him was second to none. All questions he answered in an expansive, factual way. He was very thorough and used every minute possible to accommodate what we wanted. We couldn’t asked for better guides. All accommodation was satisfactory, however we upgraded couple of times to air conditioned accommodation. It would be good to be given this option prior to travel. Food was excellent at all times with plenty of choices and no limit on how many times on re-fills. Their coffee was amazing and bought some to bring back home.

In summary the tour was fantastic, visited numerous locations with thorough knowledge of all sites. We saw plenty of wildlife, from insects to orangutans. We were busy for the whole duration and loved every minute of it. Well done and thank you. John Williams and Jane Taylor-Williams

We have travelled a lot over the years and this tailormade trip was up there at top with regards to ease of planning/booking/paying/enjoying! Have organised a lot of trips myself in the past, I was so grateful to get fast, accurate answers from 'agents on the ground'. I also like that we are supporting local businesses directly. I may be jetlagged but I'm totally clear about recommending this travel company!! Thank you TravelLocal...!!

Myths staff members Toni and Jen answered ALL of our questions and we felt well prepared for our adventure. The trip design could not have been better. We absolutely loved the trip! We are even considering becoming Myanmar ""repeaters"", as our guide called those who chose to visit Myanmar more than once.
Out guides understood our interests and often expanded our itinerary to include additional places and experiences. We made an impromptu visit to a wedding just outside of Mandalay. We were warmly welcomed and take to a table where we were offered ice cream and cake. Then the new couple insisted that we were part of the professional wedding photos that were being taken. In fact, all over Myanmar the Burmese people wanted photos taken with us. We also encountered a house building party in Kengtung where we were offered coffee and food. The house owner shared the plans for his new house with us.
Staying at the Inle Princess was perfect! We felt like VIPs. The setting was absolutely beautiful and mystical. The Park Royal was a perfect city hotel with a wonderful breakfast and very cozy bar. All the staff was very friendly. We enjoyed happy hour at the Bagan lodge. Our pool side suite was fantastic! The laundry service was fast and good. The Sala Lodge was a perfect retreat after a hot day of ""temple exploring"" and we loved the staff. We enjoyed our stay at the amazing Kyaing Tong Resort. The Conqueror resort was also a fun stay due to a firework and balloon launch arranged by our guide with the hotel staff partying with us.
Hsu Mon Aung, our Myanmar guide was amazing! She was totally professional in taking care of us but she felt like a friend from our first meeting. She was the best ambassador for her country and through her warmth and compassion was able to connect us with many Burmese people. We entered their homes as welcomed guests. During the full moon festival we were unable to go to Taunggyito to see the balloons, so Hsu organized our own balloon launch at the Conqueror resort, including music and fireworks. She knew that I had really wanted to see the balloon festival. We felt so fortunate to have had her traveling with us, Hsu checked us in at every hotel and airport. Our bags were taken care of before we knew it. At the restaurants she helped us select foods that were Burmese and would keep us healthy. We did a lot of laughing and sharing stories in the car.
In Kyaing Tong we met our regional guide who we called ""Sy"". Sy had a fantastic personality and knew the tribes well. The people were always happy to see him. He and Hsu worked well as a team. At the local school, we donated tablets, pencils, etc., and I was able to teach the children the ""Hokey Pokey"" translated by Hsu and Sy. Su and Hsu brought medicines to the hill tribes. Keo was our guide in Siem Reap. One of his best skills was skirting the crowds at the temples. We often entered through a seemingly remote jungle path vs. the highway. At our request, he also showed us less touristy temples that were not on our itinerary. Our guide Hsu was also very resourceful! At the Pho Win Daung caves the monkeys were very aggressive, so Hsu paid two young ladies with monkey food to keep the monkeys away from us.

Lavina Jethani was our agent and she was wonderful at helping us. We did the 13 days Bali & Singapore trip. It's unfortunate that other travelers didn't have a great experience, because we had an amazing time. If I read the negative reviews prior to booking, I probably wouldn't have booked the trip. Glad I didn't read the reviews prior to going because I would've missed out on a great experience.  This was our very first trip we booked through any agency. I was a little worried about our documentations (I'm a natural worrier) but I had faith in them to which we would get all our paperwork in order - to which it was.  The guides at both countries were awesome. Hotel was okay in Bali, but great In Singapore. I really liked the itinerary because we did a lot of outdoorsy stuff in Bali, then in Singapore, we got to do more R&R before heading back to the 9-5 life. Great agency, would definitely use them again!

With over 17,000 islands and 300 ethnic groups that make up this archipelago, the options for adventure travel in Indonesia are limitless. Each island reveals a vastly different backdrop, from smoldering volcanoes to hidden jungles overgrown with exotic plant and animal species. The cultural diversity is just as breathtaking, whether you are exploring ancient Buddhist temples in Java or watching, mesmerized, by the carefully quivering fingers and exaggerated gestures of traditional Balinese dances.

Go Wild in Borneo

In Indonesian Borneo, adventure abounds. Take a river boat into Tanjung Puting National Park, and appreciate the natural beauty as civilization gives way to heavy mangrove forests. Further in, the river narrows, and the jungle grows dense. The sounds of exotic wildlife are all around- proboscis monkeys screeching, the rustle of kingfishers shooting past, and air bubbles popping at the water’s surface from fish below- or crocodiles! The real highlight is seeing wild orangutans up close and personal. There are treks for all levels with private guides that know the jungle like the back of their hand. Back on your private boat at night, lay under the brilliant starry sky, and listen to sounds of the jungle as they lull you to sleep. You can also stay overnight in a traditional village to experience an entirely different way of life in this wild environment.

Surrender to the Beauty of Bali

Incredible natural beauty is just the beginning of what this small island offers. It really has it all: volcano and jungle treks, world class diving and surfing sites, natural spas, and enticing restaurants. As the only predominantly Hindu island, the atmosphere is unique. Stunning temples dot the landscape and there are flower and incense offerings everywhere you look-from the rice fields to the city streets. Groups of local women dressed in their regal traditional lace shirts and sarongs, balance towers of offerings atop their head, as they make their way to the temple. Witnessing such beauty and devotion all around you will inspire relaxation and spiritual rejuvenation. In Ubud, the island’s spiritual and cultural center, you can find many classes teaching traditional Balinese dance, cooking, and crafts, as well as meditation, yoga, or reiki, and much more.

Explore History in Java

Java has a rich history that is evident in the old temples and palaces found there. Borobodur, an 8th century Buddhist temple in Central Java, transports the visitor through three tiers, representing different levels of enlightenment. Making your way upwards through the dark, reaching the top, silhouettes of Buddha statues and hundreds of bell shaped stupas reveal themselves. As the sun rises over the horizon, the entire countryside of rice terraces and jagged volcanic peaks are illuminated. In the nearby city of Yogyakarta, the royal palace exemplifies the splendor of Javanese architecture. Make your way to East Java to experience legendary Mt. Bromo and the turquoise Ijen Craters.

Experience Traditional Performing and Visual Arts

Traditional dance performances are not to be missed. The temple is quiet as the first notes of the gamelan orchestra strike. Adorned in elaborately gilded costumes, each dancer moves carefully to the music, picking up speed and passion as the music grows more frantic. Dramatically lined eyes dart quickly and fingers tremble gracefully. Seeing artists at work is just as alluring- intricate wood carvings, painted masks, batiks fabrics, and silver jewelry are crafted with expertise passed down through generations.
