Treasures of Thailand
Our Treasures of Thailand tour is designed to maximize your Thailand travel experience. While introducing you to all of the highlights of this beautiful country, we have done extensive planning to ensure that no moment of your trip is wasted. Whether you are looking to soak up the sun on Thailand’s stunning islands, trek through the jungle, play with elephants at the ethical elephant experience, rock climb, snorkel, dive, shop, learn Thai cooking, get a Thai massage, visit the most famous Thai temples, or simply find the party, there is something for everyone – and especially for the person who wants to do it all. Now including stops in Chang Mai and Pai, this tour takes you from Bangkok through the eastern Thai islands, throughout the mainland and over to the western Thai islands. Take the Treasures of Thailand tour if you are looking for an action-packed adventure that truly introduces you to the wonders of Thailand.

Vietnam Explorer
Vietnam is, in a word, exotic. Our tour reflects this nation of great variety and contrast. Jump off the beaten trail and climb the mountainside tiered rice paddies, relax on a white sandy beach, sail the emerald waters of Halong Bay, rappel down sparkling waterfalls and navigate the crowded streets of Ho Chi Minh City. With over 90 million people and 36 million motorbikes, Vietnam is moving fast in more ways than one. Tour this ever-evolving nation now!

Seasonal Pricing is in effect for select tours, please see our FAQ for more information.

Important Information Regarding Flights:

We currently offer to include round-trip airfare departing from any location; if your location isn’t listed, select ‘other' during your sign-up according to your region, and include your requested departure city in the comments box. We offer to book flights on your behalf to provide a smooth trip for you, but you are more than welcome to book your own flights, in which case you would select a ‘land only’ tour.

The difference in price between the land only cost of the tour, and your package price for the round-trip flights + tour option, is your flight allowance. If the cost of your flight is more than the flight allowance, then that difference will be communicated to you prior to booking the flights, which will then will be added to your invoice and booked only after receiving your confirmation. During the months of July, August & December, flights tend to increase in cost substantially, so there will most likely be an additional flight fee to fly during those times; however, please keep in mind that flights fees can occur at any time of the year because the aviation industry tends to have erratic pricing.

Please note that due to time zones and travel time, flight departures are normally 1 day prior to the trip start date. In addition, the order of the individual tours within this combo may vary, depending on the scheduling. Please check with us if you have any questions regrading any of our combo tours.
