Our Upcoming Escorted Private Journeys


    Current Status

    The Canadian Government warnings for Canadian travellers remain active during the COVID-19 pandemic. As you are aware, if you travel while red warnings are in effect, your travel insurance is totally null and void. Consequently, we do not recommend international travel for our clients at this time.

    We will never recommend foreign travel unless it is absolutely safe for our guests.

    In order to keep our guests safe and healthy, we require that vaccine coverage throughout Canada and our destination countries results in effective anti-viral impact with well over 70% of the populations and that international air becomes sufficiently risk-free with respect to SARS-CoV-2 transmission.

    We had originally thought that this would take effect in early 2022, however current scientific evidence is insufficient to support that. So it now looks like our international trips won't be started until late 2022. Anyway, let's wait a bit longer and we'll see. In the meantime, keep your fingers crossed and get your vaccine!

    So, now we are exploring a few ideas for a possible re-introduction of our Private Journeys once we have all been vaccinated and we start to see removal of government travel warnings.

    Here are a few possibilities! For more details on what we are planning, please click the title or picture. If nothing happens, that means we do not yet have details available, however we are ready to discuss any aspects of these trips with you on the phone in the meantime.

    As the vaccines roll out, keep your eye on our website!

    Best of Sri Lanka

    One of our all-time favourite trips ever! The island of Sri Lanka is one of the most diverse destinations on Earth. We start at beaches on the Indian Ocean before moving on to the former capitals in the Ancient Triangle and the amazing site of Sigiriya. We then head for the central mountains and the capital of Kandy. After a few days here, we move on to the amazing country tea plantations where we are treated like royalty for a few days. From here, we head out on safari in Yala National Park for a few days then move on to the ancient Portugese port of Galle. Finally, we return to Colombo for two days before heading home.

    Budapest to Odessa

    For those of you who expect that Europe will likely be opened prior to other parts of the world and will be the safest area to visit initially, we agree!
    With that in mind, we offer our brand-new road-trip from Budapest, Hungary into historic Romania, through the beautiful country of Moldova and ending in the exciting Ukraine.

    Waterways of SE Asia

    Three years ago we took a few of our guests through Eastern Thailand, Southern Laos, Central Cambodia and Southern Vietnam on a very special water-based itinerary. It was one of our favourite trips ever! So, we decided to offer it once more.
    On this trip we will visit many new places that had not been featured on our regular SE Asia Journeys, so this trip will appeal to everyone, even those who have travelled with us in these countries previously. Plus, we also aim the hotels at a slightly lower level than we would normally use and we keep the overall trip shorter, so the total cost can be kept down. But, I promise, you will love this trip!

    Best of Vietnam and Cambodia

    For more than twenty years we have been leading our clients through the amazing countries in Southeast Asia.

    Best of Chile

    We have always loved our journeys through South America and over the years we fell in love with the amazing long and narrow country of Chile. So, we have decided to create a brand new itinerary through Chile from Atacama in the north to Punta Arenas in the south, visiting all our favourite places of beauty in between.
