Tours of Thailand allow you to immerse yourself in the Land of Smiles. Known for its incredible hospitality, delicious cuisine and variety of landscapes, our carefully curated Thailand tours allow you to experience it all. Travel from the cosmopolitan city of Bangkok with its floating market, many temples and luxury skyscrapers to the wild jungles of the north or the paradise beaches of the islands. Whatever you’re looking for, speak to our Destination Specialists and we’ll book your bespoke tour itinerary.
Our Classic Thailand Tour allows you to contrast frenetic Bangkok with the peaceful rainforests and temples of northern Thailand. Make your way north from Bangkok, stopping at the Summer Palace and many other temples before visiting a historical park full of statues of Buddha. The White Temple is an incredible example of modern culture in Thailand, while the House of Opium will immerse you in the country’s fascinating history. In Chiang Rai you’ll find a bustling market and an opportunity to enjoy a river cruise, before heading to Chiang Mai. This lively city is home to luscious streets and is the ideal place for those wanting to trek the jungles.
Pair our Elephant Hills Jungle Safari with the Classic Thailand Tour and get close to these incredible animals who have been saved from difficult lives. Explore the rivers and lakes of the national park, stay in luxury tents and learn about the majestic Asian elephants. Our four day Hidden Wonders of the North Tour is perfect when paired with a holiday to Thailand’s islands and beaches. Enjoy the culture of Chiang Mai, as well as the ancient temples, luscious forests and rural towns as you explore Thailand’s peaceful north.

"Don’t limit yourself to all inclusive hotels when there is an abundance of inexpensive and delicious street food out there to try."
"Resist the urge to cram too much into one trip. Thailand is such a beautiful country, with so much to see, so you should spend a few days in each place to really soak it up."
"Bangkok is amazing – in fact, it's one of my favourite cities – but if you have more of Thailand that you'd like to see then I would recommend staying three nights here before moving on."
Frequently Asked Questions
Are all tours escorted?
A number of our tours are escorted, however, most tours also have 'free time' where you can explore at your own pace and leisure. We would advise you to check individual itineraries as some tours may differ, or call our Destination Specialists for advice.
Is it safe to explore Thailand by yourself?
British nationals make over one million visits to Thailand every year. Most visits are trouble-free. Make sure your travel insurance covers you for any adventure activities you’ll be doing. Only use fully licensed and insured operators, and satisfy yourself that the company is using up-to-date equipment before taking part.
Are my meals and transfers included in the tour price?
Please check individual itinerary details as board basis and transfers may vary. This information should be available on each individual tour detail page but if you are unsure, please don’t hesitate to call our Destination Specialists on 01293 832455 and they can advise you further.
Are credit cards accepted widely in Thailand?
Major credit cards are widely accepted by large shops, hotels and restaurants. However, they may not be accepted by small family-run restaurants, market stalls or in remote towns and rural areas. Always ensure you carry enough cash for purchases, since credit cards aren't always an option everywhere in Thailand. Cash machines are found widely throughout Thailand, so withdrawing cash shouldn't be problematic in most areas. Again, some smaller villages and rural areas may not have access to cash machines, so prepare for this before venturing too far from a city or major town.
What should I pack to go to Thailand?
It's easy to get carried away with your packing list when you're taking a trip to such an exotic country. Don't forget a 220-240 AC voltage or universal plug adaptor, mosquito repellent, earplugs, a waterproof bag (if you're visiting during rainy season or want to go on a boat trip), and comfortable shoes for all the exploring you'll be doing. Don't, under any circumstances, forget to organise travel insurance before you go.
Why you'll love Thailand...
Thailand is a country of enthralling experiences. Its paradise islands offer warm, clear waters and golden beaches bordered by laidback communities. Inland you’ll find fascinating history, hill tribe villages and rainforests garlanded in mist. Thai cities are bustling with market-sellers and tuk-tuks weaving through traffic. Buddha statues smile and temples sparkle. Your only dilemma is what to see and where to go next. Our Destination Specialists will help you plan your trip, but take a look at these suggestions.

Did you know...
1. Thai is the official language of Thailand, but in the more popular regions and large cities, English is widely understood. We would suggest, however, taking a phrasebook if you intend to travel even a little off the beaten track.
2. Try not to shake hands. The Thai way of greeting is called 'the wai'. It consists of a slight bow with the palms pressed together, in a prayer-like fashion. Men should say ‘sawadee-krap’ while women should say ‘sawadee-kah’. Both mean ‘hello’.
3. Thailand is an incredibly hospitable country and beach-life here is very accepting. However be respectful of Thai customs, religion and culture and particularly their monarchy, for whom they have great respect. Be sure to dress respectfully when entering places of worship, with everywhere between your shoulders and knees covered.
