Journeys Within has announced the launch of a new line of Luxury Tours. These luxury tours incorporate the Journeys Within experiences and signature philanthropic elements while providing guests with unparalleled service and luxury.
“Luxury travelers are typically slightly removed from the people and culture in the country they’re travelling, staying in five-star properties that unintentionally create a barrier between them and the outside world,” says Andrea Ross, owner and founder of Journeys Within.
“Journeys Within has always been about delivering unforgettable, customized trips to our guests by connecting them to the communities and people in the countries they are visiting. With this new line of Luxury Tours we are continuing to do just that, but also incorporating the amazing properties and service that Southeast Asia is known for.”
A few of the exclusive luxury experiences offered in the new line of Journeys Within Luxury Tours include:
Siem Reap: Exclusive Photo Excursion of Angkor with John McDermott – Designed for enthusiastic amateurs as well as experienced photographers, a private photo consultation and excursion with John McDermott will be tailored to your interests.
Hanoi: Village Visit and Ethnology Museum with Dr. Bui Xuan Dinh – Visit Dong Ngac Cultural Village, an ancient village and cultural heritage site honoring people recognized by the kings of Vietnam. Visit historical homes and explore the famous Ethnology Museum with local expert and history professor Dr. Bui Xuan Dinh.
Bangkok: Jim Thompson’s House Private Tour – Now a museum, this traditional teakwood house is just as Jim Thompson left it before he mysteriously disappeared in the Cameron Highlands of Western Malaysia. You will be treated to your very own private tour, when no other visitors are allowed in the museum.
Luang Prabang: Tour of Luang Prabang and a Private Tour of the Traditional Arts and Ethnology Museum with the museum founder – Enjoy a private tour with Traditional Arts and Ethnology Museum founder, Tara Gujadhur, as she brings this small and intamate museum to life.
As a specialist in active philanthropy, Journeys Within can incorporate “giving back” into any of the luxury itineraries – whether it be an afternoon, a weekend, or even weeks of volunteering into a tour package, or by having guests make a donation when booking a trip and including in the itinerary a visit to the project that received the donation. These elements in a trip further enhance the experience and once again allow the luxury traveler to really get to be a part of the countries and communities they are visiting, not to mention knowing that they have made a positive impact as part of their travels.
