The right number of like-minded travellers to make new friends.
Your dates. Your group. Our expertly-designed itinerary.
Tailored to your interests, a bespoke travel experience.
Combines the hallmarks of any B&R itinerary (excellent hotels and beautiful routes) with the freedom of pacing each day exactly the way you like.
Throughout the day, a knowledgeable local guide provides insider access and expert tips. At night, you can explore and dine on your own.
Our B&R guides are with you throughout, anticipating needs, translating languages, providing advice and—above all—facilitating fun.
We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.
These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.
“I can’t say I really ‘work out,’ but I’m in good shape and am relatively active.”
“I enjoy a good walk or ride, and feel comfortable while on the move.”
“I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”
“I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”
“I want to feel invigorated each day and going hard is how I like to do that.”
Uncover the Tastes of Thailand
Join us to discover the vibrant character, rich culture and intense flavours that Thailand has to offer on this one-of-a-kind culinary adventure. We’ll spend our days wandering markets, farmland and local kitchens; exploring magnificent ancient temples; and of course, uncovering the wonderfully delicious and unique street food that Thailand is famous for. Join celebrity chef, Naomi Duguid for a visit to the market and a cooking class where you’ll gain insight into her extensive knowledge of Thai cuisine. Enjoy an evening food tour of “Hidden Bangkok” led by American Thai food blogger and writer of “Thailand’s Best Street Food”, Chawadee Nualkhair. By journey’s end, we’ll experience a deep connection to this remote corner of the globe—including glitzy, chaotic and ultimately rewarding, Bangkok—as we revel in the gracious and easy going hospitality of the people of Thailand.
