Solo backpacking travel is not always as easy as it may seem.
In fact, there have been countless occasions when I’ve been lost, had to walk for kilometers to reach a certain hostel, taken highly uncomfortable modes of transportation, and there have even been a few times when I couldn't locate any food or water (briefly of course).
Sometimes it can just be nice to have all travel plans prearranged and all travel related issues taken care of. When you just want to travel and not have to worry about any of the hassles, travel tours can be helpful and convenient.
About Travel Indochina
With over 18 years of experience in operating group tours around Asia, Travel Indochina has accumulated a large variety of different prepackaged sightseeing tours.
They also offer tailor-made tours that specifically cater to individual travelers or personal groups.
Interested in cycling through Vietnam, following the great Silk Road or just enjoying leisure time on your Thailand holidays?
Travel Indochina offers all these tours and many more. Each small group tour includes a local English-speaking guide as well as a Western tour leader that takes care of all the logistics.
Both of them are very knowledgeable about the location and willing to answer any questions to help make the most of your trip.
China can be a difficult country to visit because it’s so large and there are seemingly infinite places to visit – all spread out around the country.
The China tours offered by Travel Indochina include everything from the main highlights of the entire country to tours of certain provinces like Tibet or Yunnan.
With travel tours all over Asia, there is something appealing for just about everyone.
On their website you can easily download a free copy of the Travel Indochina Small Group journeys 2012 – 2013 brochure and start planning your trip.
One of the biggest drawbacks about traveling with a group is the hassle of the large group itself. There’s nothing more annoying than having to wait on 50 people to use the bathroom or slowly browse through a boring museum.
Luckily, Travel Indochina keeps their group size pretty small. Most of the tours include an average of just 12 travelers with a maximum of 16 on tours throughout Asia.
Having a small group size to travel with can really make the difference in the quality of a tour. One of the greatest things about small group travel is that you’ll likely meet some like-minded people who you can connect with.
Small group size makes things a lot more personal and it's easier to be yourself while you travel!
One thing that Travel Indochina really takes seriously is their customer service and support. You can easily get in touch with their representatives by phone, or by sending a message via e-mail.
They also make it simple to contact them about any requests or destinations via the quick enquiry form. They will respond either by e-mail or you can even have them give you a phone call.
While it depends on the country you are visiting and the attractions included on the itinerary, 7 day tours cost around AU$1,500 and 14 day tours cost in the range of AU$3,000. This includes all accommodation, entrance fees, some meals, and transportation.
The longer 18 and 19 day tours are priced in the AU$3,000 to AU$5,000 range – but wow do they pack in loads of sightseeing!
If you customize a tour or want to create your own package, you can easily ask for a quote of exactly what it will cost.
Though in my opinion the tours are a little on the high-priced side, you pay for the convenience of everything prearranged so you can visit Asia hassle free and not have to deal with the unpleasant frustrations that inevitably arise from self travel.
With a huge range of tours around Indochina, small group sizes and their knowledgeable guides, Travel Indochina is a great resource if you are looking to join a small group tour in Asia.
