My sister and I just came back from a wonderful custom trip to China. Everything was set up beautifully by ATJ, and our experience couldn't have been better. We saw old China and new China, and stayed in places large and small, many of them UNESCO World Heritage sites that are well off the beaten path. The guides and drivers were all great, and it is obvious that they all want to go the extra mile for ATJ clients. Thank you for what I believe is my fifth trip with ATJ, since the first one in 1994.

Superb planning and execution made our first visit to Thailand an extraordinary experience! What sets ATJ apart for me is that they don’t do “canned” itineraries. They give expert advice -- and don’t seem to get tired of however many questions you might have -- but they also listen to what the client wants and build these preferences into the planning. The result is a customized journey with no ugly surprises, and yet one that is filled with the thrill of discovery. Outstanding on every level!

Just got back from our Mull Odyssey cruise. An amazing, truly special holiday. So many highlights to pick from but the amazing columnar basalt rock formations on Staffa; Lochbuie Standing Stone Circle; dolphins bow riding; huge jellyfish; 'helping' crew the ship; Tobermory; sunsets & rainbows; Iona and the fabulous scenery are a good start. Special thanks to Christophe and Amy for going above and beyond being the crew. I cannot recommend this fabulous trip and company enough!

St Hilda - a little gem of a sailboat - great holiday. Excellent crew - thanks to skipper Christophe and cook Kerry . Arnamurchan distillery - fascinating tour - a real find. Loved the island of Egg - hike to Kildonan followed by fresh mussels and chips at the pub in the sun - bliss! And then she sped, bonnie boat, over the sea to Skye.

Wonderful, memorable cruise of the Inner Hebrides. The staff was far above any expectations I may have had. Great communication and assistance with the office prior to the trip. The crew on board took wonderful care of us, and were always responsive to our needs and preferences. Seamanship was clearly superior. Food was outstanding!! The ship is small enough that you really get a sense of being on the water and in the islands. It is also large enough to have resources and comforts. I am happy to recommend it.

    About Asia Transpacific Journeys

    They craft personalized itineraries for international travelers. They specialize in immersive Asia travel.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Small group tours that provide unique cultural and country insights. Their tours are all led by experienced guides who have extensive industry and travel experience. Custom tours as well as pre designed itineraries are available. This is a great company to work with for planning the kind of travel experience you want, catered to your interests specifically, especially in Asia which is where they specialize.

    Who Travels With Them?

    Couples and small groups of friends are common on their tours - all ages are welcome, but they are most popular among middle aged travelers; think 30-50. Their trips are on the more expensive side, but with that comes a lot of personalization.

    Where Do They Operate?

    Despite their misleading name, they operate tours not only in Asia, but in Australia, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, and Turkey as well. The bulk of their expertise and travel experiences are offered in Asia, however, including Mongolia.

    Why Travel With Them?

    If you enjoy small group travel (the max number of people on their trips is 18) and are looking for a truly immersive and authentic travel experience. All logistical aspects of your trip are taken care of and they provide non stop in country support.

    About St Hilda Sea Adventures

    St. Hilda Sea Adventures provide the unique experience to see Scotland from the sea. They offer many activities and private excursions - a perfect travel experience for families, older travellers, and small multi-gen groups.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Taking only up to 11 guests (6 on St Hilda and 11 on Seahorse II), their tours are incredibly unique, as you cruise aboard a classic ex-tall ship (St Hilda) or a proper small ship (Seahorse II). Activities include sailing, swimming, sea kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, rock pooling, and lobster potting. Or, you can simply choose to just relax and watch the spectacular wildlife and scenery float by.

    Who Travels With Them?

    All ages and all types enjoy traveling with St. Hilda Sea Adventures. Families, couples, and solo passengers are all welcome. Passengers can choose to do as much or as little as they like. This is a great trip for young kids to enjoy as well, for the thrill of hoisting the sails like a true sailor.

    Where Do They Operate?

    The West Coast of Scotland is where they specialize, the Outer and Inner Hebrides specifically. Such a niche focus is a huge positive for those interested in getting a unique view of this part of the world.

    Why Travel With Them?

    Their Scottish cruises give you the opportunity to see extraordinary wildlife and to cruise aboard a small ship with skipper and chef and a small group of passengers. All food is included, and there are many opportunities for interesting excursions. Some excursions are included in the price however, you can also arrange excursions based on your interests. These are not included but allow for a wonderful amount of personalization to your travel experience with St. Hilda Sea Adventures.
