Broaden your horizons
on a long-haul holiday
The spirit of adventure is something that can take over at any point and when you next feel like treating yourself to the holiday of a lifetime, we can help. We have a fantastic selection of long-haul holidays on offer that can take you from the precariously perched Tiger’s Nest monastery in Bhutan to the cherry blossom-lined streets of Japan. A number of these itineraries may be a little more challenging due to altitude, extensive walking, uneven terrain or particularly long days, so please do check the relevant tour pages for the recommended fitness levels.
Are there themes on the long-haul tours?
If you’re wondering what the themes of our long-haul tours are, we can tell you that they cover all kinds of interests. Firstly, many of them pay visits to gardens, both well-known and privately owned. In South Africa, you will explore the botanical gardens of Kirstenbosch; on our Australian tour, you can look forward to a visit to Melbourne’s acclaimed Botanic Gardens along with a stopover in Singapore that includes time to wander around Gardens By the Bay; and in Marrakech, we will take you to the Majorelle Garden, home to over 15 endemic bird species and a fine collection of cacti. Elsewhere, our long-haul tours offer the opportunities to spot wildlife on game drives in stunning locations, explore the local culture and even enjoy a gastronomic taste of what the countries are known for.

We love receiving feedback from our valued guests and here are some recent testimonials from people who travelled with Tour Manager Julia Corden on two of our Costa Rica itineraries:
“Memorable in all aspects. I can now relax and reflect on the amazing time spent with the tour and fantastic, knowledgeable, patient and helpful Julia and Margharita.” – Guest on Gardens of Costa Rica, January ‘21

A selection of our long-haul tours include free access to executive airport lounges, namely our Arts and Gardens of Philadelphia and New York, Gardens and Wildlife of Western Canada, Birdwatching in Costa Rica, Gardens of Barbados, Chile: A Botanical Adventure, Birdwatching and Wildlife Safaris in Tanzania and Australian Gardens, Landscapes and Iconic Cities with Mike Nelhams holidays. Additionally, two of the holidays – Birdwatching in Costa Rica and our Tanzania trip – will see you receive a free guide book closer to the departure date. If your chosen tour includes either of these extras, it will be noted on the relevant page. What’s more, our Tanzania holiday also has no single supplement to pay, making it a great choice for the solo travellers among us.
