Indus Experiences unveils five private family tours in Asia
Southern Asia specialist Indus Experiences has brought out a new collection of five private family tours in response to demand from the trade.
The Private Family Holidays Collections for 2020-21 features tours to Sri Lanka, India, Borneo, Thailand and Vietnam. They offer a mix of experiences for younger children and families with teenagers, including beaches, hands-on adventures, wildlife and cultural excursions.
Some key attractions offered on the new trips are trekking in the rainforests of Borneo and viewing orangutans; spotting elephants, leopards and slot bears; climbing Sigiriya rock in Sri Lanka; and cruising the backwaters of Kerala.
Other highlights include travelling in Vietnam by foot, bike or cruise, and visiting the beaches of Khao Lak in Thailand after exploring hill-tribe villages, rainforests and Bangkok.
Tours vary in length between 10 and 16 days between April and September. Prices start from £2,815 and £2,595 per child under 12 for the 15-day Borneo Explorer tour, combining the cultural and natural highlights of Malaysia, including international and domestic flights, accommodation with breakfast, some extra meals, private transfers, excursions, entrance fees and sightseeing with a guide.
Asiya Zargar, marketing director and Indus Experiences said: “This new collection of original tours is based on several decades of experience arranging well-balanced family itineraries. Each tour includes major highlights and lesser-known treasures of the destination, with plenty of options for different ages and interest.”
