  • Beautiful Kerala

    BEAUTIFUL KERALA
    PRIVATE JOURNEY – 18 DAYS – From £3,345
    Kerala is rightly one of India's most popular destinations. A region of staggering scenic beauty encompassing jungle and beach, tea hills and historic towns, this journey encapsulates the best of Kerala using small and unique hotels. Commencing in the coffee plantation retreat of Tranquil, travel through the hills to Ooty before taking the Nilgiri Mountain Railway down to Mettupalayam. After two days exploring Kochi, cruise the Keralan backwaters followed by a three night stay at delightful Serenity. End the journey beside the sea in Mullur, close to India's famed beach resort of Kovalam.

  • Cruising the Irrawaddy River

    CRUISING THE IRRAWADDY RIVER
    PRIVATE JOURNEY / ESCORTED CRUISE – 14 DAYS – From £4,690
    For many Burma is inextricably linked to the mighty Irrawaddy River. This incredible waterway snakes from the north of the country south past Mandalay, Bagan and Yangon exiting into the Bay of Bengal. This itinerary joins the Pandaw cruise, a replica colonial river steamer, in Mandalay for its voyage south towards the capital. With visits in and around Mandalay and to Bagan, the cruise also provides access to remote villages, towns and temple complexes few travellers ever see. Comfortable and well-appointed, this is a timeless way to experience the country.
