Note: All products in the website are being reviewed in view of the current
pandemic on account of the coronavirus. At this point (i.e. when the website
was being updated in late Dec 2020 / early Jan 2021), we regret that we are
unable to recommend travel from the UK to the majority of the countries in Asia
that we deal with. We are hoping that the situation will improve (not only for
the anxiously waiting travellers and the tour operators in the UK but also for
the thousands of people connected with the travel trade who are more than just
associates for us.). When and how quickly travel is likely to resume is unknown
to us with the earliest time likely to be in the autumn of 2021. Many of the
products may need to be changed at the early stages for the safety of the travellers
and the locals at these countries.
