Just returned from India & Shimla solo travellers trip. A fantastic time was had by all, we did so much in 2 weeks. Thank you to Riviera for your great organisation and always there to help if needed. Special thanks to Matt our tour guide for all the laughs, information on the places we were seeing, keeping us all in check (if he could ha ha) and his great organisation and compasion if needed. I would greatly recommend Rivera Travel and cannot wait for my next trip with them in September to the Kerala Backwaters. Keep up the good work all.

The whole experience of our visit to India and Shimla was amazing highly organized, saw lots, experience incredible -don’t go expecting a relaxed holiday it’s busy but then what you see and experience is out of this world.rebecca our tour guide was so informative and helpful - my first time with Riveria and it won’t be my last the sighting of the tigers was the icing on the cake.

Sri Lanka - fabulous trip but very poor Tour Rep
Just returned from a 12 day escorted tour to Sri Lanka (24 Feb - 8 March). The trip was excellent. The hotels were fabulous. Our guide Ravi was very good and very knowledgeable.

We walked the self-guided Nakasendo Trail in October coordinated through Oku Japan. Everything was perfect, maps were easy to follow, accommodation was amazing and the scenery and walk was beautiful. The customer service from Oku Japan was above and beyond. We are already thinking about our next trip and will definitely be booking through them again. Well done Oku Japan we had a great time and apologies for not doing a review sooner.

absolutely amazing experience using oku japan for a 4 day kumano kodo trail self-guided tour (november 2016), the attention to detail and organization, the quality of materials, the fabulous experience on the trail and my evenings/mornings at local inns, and also visited the kumano kodo local office and spent some time with the lovely oku japan staff; I did underestimate the rigor of the hike, especially the opening, “passing through the womb” section of the trail, but managed to adjust, and it was a deeply moving, meaningfully, spiritual experience, much gratitude, highly recommended

Just returned from the Nakasendo Trail walking tour. It was fabulous! Our guide, Naomi, was outstanding and Oku Japan was an excellent company to deal with. I highly recommend them and would use them again without reservation.

        About Riviera Travel

        In the travel business since 1984, UK-based Riviera Travel started as a small agency running bus trips to France, and has grown to become ones of Britain’s largest purveyors of overseas guided tours, offering packaged land tours and river cruises in many parts of the world.  

        What Makes Them Stand Out? 

        With the motto “passionate about travel,” Riviera sets a high bar for itself, but its comprehensive attention to detail seems to back up the claim.  

        Who Travels With Them?

        Their clientele are mostly British aged 60-plus who prefer taking guided tours to traveling on their own, and who seek good value for the money. 

        Where Do They Operate?

        Riviera Travel runs guided tours of Europe, North and South America, Central America and the Caribbean, Southeast Asia, India, Australia, New Zealand, and southern and northern Africa. River cruises in Europe and Asia are one of their specialties. 

        How Does It Work?

        Riviera does all the work. All you have to do is show up. But if at some points in the tour you want to do some exploring on your own, that’s fine, too. 

        Why Travel With Them? 

        Riviera Travel oversees every aspect of their tours, personally picking the local guides, the lodgings, the dining experiences, and the attractions to visit. They train their tour managers rigorously and pride themselves on getting the logistical details right. And they never add surcharges or hidden fees to the prices, which are all-inclusive. The prices don’t change no matter when you book.
