Our Touring Holiday Top Picks

Are you looking for something different on your next holiday? Perhaps you want to explore new destinations? Or see the world from another angle? We know that sometimes we all need a little excitement, and there's no better time for excitement than when you're on holiday!

The most exciting type of holiday for us right now is touring holidays. If exploring ancient ruins, hiking famous nature trails and visiting extraordinary landmarks sounds like your kind of holiday, then you need to keep reading.

You don’t have to be Indiana Jones to enjoy a touring holiday. Activity levels vary to accommodate for every kind of traveller, so we're confident there will be a touring holiday perfect for you. Now before you rush to the nearest airport screaming "ADVENTURE CALLS", allow us to suggest a few of our favourite touring holiday destinations – you'll be away on holiday in no time!

 

VIETNAM AND CAMBODIA

Despite being so close to each other, these two destinations have their very own unique culture and a lengthy list of reasons to visit. The delicious cuisines, jaw-dropping sights and incredible landmarks are just a few of the reasons you need to visit these beautiful destinations. Lucky for you, our tour holiday top pick – the Mekong River cruise and Phu Quoc beach tour, gives you the chance to explore both!

If you want the best of both worlds, this is the touring holiday for you. Soak in the culture of Cambodia and Vietnam while you cruise the iconic Mekong River on a luxury cruise ship. Then get some rest and relaxation on the glorious beaches of Phu Quoc Island off the Gulf of Thailand. A beach holiday and cruise holiday all-in-one. Can it get any better? Also for the bargain hunters, we recommend you visit the mystical floating markets of Vietnam while you're there.

INDIA

India is a country that needs no introduction. You probably already know about the delightful cuisines, colourful festivals and historical landmarks. But being there; tasting the food, feeling the culture and exploring the history is an experience we have to recommend. The vastness of India means it would be practically impossible to experience all it has to offer in one holiday. But we can suggest a good place to start.

We think a touring holiday focused on the famous golden triangle of India is the perfect way to explore India. In one holiday you’ll be taken to some of India’s must-see cities such as New Delhi and Jaipur. You’ll also visit some of India’s most famous landmarks, such as the world-famous Taj Mahal and stunning Amber Fort. Plus, depending on the tour; you’ll even have the chance to search for majestic Bengal tigers in the Ranthambore National Park.

PERU

Our last destination in this showcase is Peru. When we think of Peru, the first word that comes to mind is adventure. Peru is known for fantastic trekking trails, remarkable world heritage sites and ancient historical ruins. But these are just a few highlights you can expect when you explore Peru.

You may be surprised by the sprawling metropolis of the Lima, the capital city of Peru and where our touring holiday top pick starts. The Panoramic Peru tour. Named for the incredible views this tour provides. (Don’t forget the camera).

Once you’ve dined on the famous Peruvian cuisine in Lima and explored rural Peru to see ancient ruins, you have to visit the world-famous Machu Picchu. It’s our favourite highlight of this tour and usually the main reason people visit Peru on holiday. This ancient Inca citadel hidden in the mountains is well worth the journey of getting there. Plus if you’re feeling active, we suggest you take a challenging hike to the Huayna Picchu viewpoint.
