Adventure Tours

Venture to a new destination with an open mind, a good pair of walking shoes, and an interest in going off the beaten path to take part in culturally immersive activities.


Experiencing one of the bright festivals in Asia is a fantastic taste of something exceptional, beyond the day to day life of a town. It really gives you an opportunity to get amongst the locals as everyone will be out reveling alongside you. Festivals often have a long history and can reveal a lot about the local culture. Your one of a kind experience will be something you’ll remember always. Choosing Asia Classic Tours to guide you on your festival tour gives you understanding and access you wouldn’t have had on your own. Our guides draw on their local knowledge to ensure you see all the highlights, like wandering the camel camps or seeing a moustache competition at the Pushkar festival in India.  

Private Shore Excursions

Private Shore Excursions allow you to travel with your party alone and, in many cases, to fully customize your shore tour. For groups of 4 or more, we can usually arrange a private shore excursion for less than the cost of a large cruise line tour.

Beach Vacations

Beach breaks have long been synonymous with travel in Asia, from the islands of Thailand's south to the long stretches of sandy beaches in India's Goa. Whether it’s a relaxing break on a secluded beach or a more action-packed vacation including diving and watersports you prefer, Asia has an abundance of beach destinations to choose from. For relatively undeveloped stretches of coastline, head to the beautiful beaches in Sri Lanka's south, or the Vietnamese island of Phu Quoc. Cambodia offers the up and coming beach town of Sihanoukville with a range of beaches to explore, or the quieter seaside town of Kep. Nha Trang is a wonderful place for a more action-packed beach vacation, with a mix of watersports, great hotels and fabulous fresh seafood restaurants to try. The diversity of Asia's beaches means there's something on offer for every type of traveler.
