Stories That Last A Lifetime

For over 22 years we’ve been helping travelers discover the real Asia, creating unique experiences and stories that last a lifetime.


At Insider Journeys, we’ve been changing lives through travel for 22 years. We believe travel is about more than a vacation. It’s about getting to know a country in all its glory, through meeting welcoming local people and seeing places through their eyes.

We take you on a journey that you’ll experience with all your senses. Gazing on the mighty limestone peaks of Halong Bay in Vietnam; inhaling the aromatic steam rising from a bowl of steaming hot miso ramen noodles in Sapporo, Japan; treading the well-worn path through the jungle to witness the sunrise over Angkor Wat in Cambodia. It’s magical moments like these that create stories that you’ll be telling your friends and family for the rest of your life.

Truly Small Groups 

Small group travel allows for flexibility and spontaneity, which is why our journeys operate with an average of 12 travelers and a guaranteed maximum of 16. Because groups are small, we are able to accommodate the specific interests of our travelers while allowing plenty of opportunities for independent exploration. We offer the ease and flexibility of independent travel without the hassles.

Our Style Of Travel

We have hand-picked our hotels and resorts to reflect high quality, character and the best location. Our travelers enjoy the combination of expertly-designed itineraries, tasteful hotels, insightful Western tour leaders and local guides, and great value for money. Both our expat and local staff who live and work across the region will deliver unparalleled on-the-ground support. We offer 3-4 star Classic itineraries as well as an upgrade to 5 star Gold hotels, but regardless of the type of accommodation you prefer, our itineraries and our insider experiences are designed to deliver authentic connections with the local cultures, people and food across Asia.

Private Travel

We offer an extensive range of Private Travel options, including fully customized handmade itineraries, 'ready-made' perfected 7-18 day itineraries, and 'Mix & Match' 3-5 day Explorer Packages, to help you to design your ideal exploration of one or multiple countries.  Our Asia Specialists are available for advice and to take care of all the logistics.

Our People

You have the benefit of our professional English-speaking local guides (and expert Western tour leaders on our Small Group Journeys). Their insight and knowledge means you can expect experiences no guidebook can offer, and you will be inspired by their passion.

Instead of just visiting sites and leaving with only photos, you will come home with an insight into the extraordinary cultures and histories of the destinations we visit and some amazing stories to tell for a lifetime.
