One-of-a-kind small group departures
These Limited Edition Small Group holidays are a bit of a departure (boom tish!) for us. Each tour is a one off, and features exclusive and unique experiences which make the most of the special partnerships that we’ve developed during our decades working across Asia.
A lot of thought (and a few 'passionate' discussions!) preceded our decision to develop group holidays. The group approach was an exciting but altogether new direction for us, which demanded that we venture out of our privately guided tailor-made comfort-zone.
All the same, we quickly fell in love with the significant benefits that group travel brings, and have wholeheartedly applied our own unique approach and detailed country expertise to developing these trips.
We're never content with creating ordinary holidays, and the philosophy underlying this range of tours is to offer you unique and unusual experiences, yet make them achievable by using the group travel approach.
We want to show you the lesser-known places which can be harder to reach, but which reward travellers who make the effort to get there. Each tour will let you explore routes that steer well away from the more obvious destinations, and discover the less accessible areas that we’ve personally been exploring for many years. Most of the trips also feature a selection of classic highlights (the ones that are highlights for good reason!) but we’ve designed them to be anything but run-of-the-mill.
We've developed some very special partnerships during our years in Asia, and many of these tours make the most of that. Our Secret Ho Chi Minh Trail expedition in Laos, for example, sees clients joining our friends at Mine Advisory Group. Other tours are timed to coincide with special events such as local festivals, offering an incomparable immersion into local culture. For each tour we have persuaded a true expert to come along for the ride, adding another unique dimension to the tour through their authoritative guiding. In addition, we've ensured a broad range of travel grades, ranging from comfortable to adventurous. Test your limits with our adventure-o-meter below!
Whichever tour you choose, you will always benefit from Selective Asia’s years of experience, and our Destination Specialists’ genuine passion for delivering world class experiences in their regions of expertise.
