Stay away. This was a weird experience! I should have hung the phone up right after being introduced to the agent who asked me, "Do you have enough money for this trip?" What?! You've got to be kidding! I asked this bizarre person why they asked me that and she said, "We don't usually have women traveling alone." My jaw hit the floor. Was she born in 1850, 1900? My bad that I didn't hang the phone up right there and then.

This was the tip of the iceberg, however: I had originally called this agency early to make sure I got the trip nailed down for the dates I needed because I was using frequent flier miles for my flights. The agent said I had contacted them too early and that we can make arrangements later. Okay. I took her advice.

Lo and behold, we made the reservations TOO LATE and I ended up having to spend three extra days where I did not want to be because of her error! She gave me a curt "I'm sorry." In my opinion, a five-star agency would have offered some compensation for this type of error! Nothing, zero, zilch! Five-star? HA! No way. Stay away and go with someone else!

We were invited by friends, (two couples,) to join them on a trip they had already planned to Sri Lanka in December of 2016. Because they had used ATJ, we asked that company to add us on. The three couples were all then going on to India, but in separate directions, so we had ATJ continue to plan our private journey in India, with hotels, guides and drivers. Eric Kereus was our agent from ATJ. He was superb. Both in Sri Lanka and in India we had wonderful guides and drivers, stayed in delightful, top rate accommodations, and ate delicious healthy meals with never a hint of indigestion. Everything we saw was interesting and worth our time in both countries. We are very satisfied customers. You can’t miss by using ATJ.

This was my third experience traveling with Asia Transpacific, we have been to Vietnam and Cambodia and in Myamar in individual trips organized by them. This was my first guided tour. The tour guide was excellent, very knowledgeable and responsible, she made sure we got a well rounded experience with history as well as modern day information. The tour encompassed modern Japan, as well as visits to ancient sites. The company is very responsive, several of our tour members had emergencies (one left her credit and bank cards home) and the company helped without hesitation. Tours are extremely well organized. I highly recommend them!

We spent three weeks touring Nepal and India. We can really recommend Safhands Travel and especially Mr. Rohit. The tour and itinerary suggested by Rohit was excellent. The service received by the Safehands representatives, welcomers, drivers and guides was first class. We will treasure our memories of this holiday. Thank you Rohit.

Me my wife and our daughter had no problems all over the tour as Mr Rohit has planned exaclty the way we wanted it to be. Besides then a small room problem in Shimla ca use the room was small and there don't have running hot water as other hotels cause we had a child and we were first time feeling the chills of winter but it's was settled by Rohit as he promised us. Regarding the firts driver I think he is not fit to be a tour driver, beginning was okay but towards then end he was slacking but that to was settled by Rohit, by giving us a new driver.but overall we was happy and enjoyed the cold weather which we wanted to experience once in a life time as we are from Malaysia. We will come back to India and will get Rohit from Safe Hands to do the arrangements again. Will recommend to all who wish to travel to India SAFE HANDS TRAVELS. Thank you Rohit SAFE HANDS TRAVELS. All the best you.

Excellent travel company. There were only 4 ladies traveling however, throughout the trip, we felt very safe and in good hands. Excellent accommodation, vehicles, sightseeing, guides and their followup care. The driver was very patient with our none ending shopping request. Would recommend to all

    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.
