DESTINATIONS YOU NEVER THOUGHT POSSIBLE - IT IS POSSIBLE - WITH US

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN US AND OUR COMPETITORS

Zen Oriental Journeys aim to provide the best tour packages, which explore the civilizations of Asia beyond the depth of a casual tourist itinerary. Each tour is individually crafted, includes significant destinations which are thoroughly researched, and provide a tour which is balanced between engagement and relaxation. The unique itineraries reflect a thorough knowledge of the places, peoples, history and cultures of the region. They are designed to take you ‘off the beaten track’ to include crafts villages, galleries, museums, sacred ceremonies and festivals, market places and special arrangements for performances, all with meticulous attention to detail on every aspect to ensure an enriching and rewarding experience.
Our workplace is a studio office. Zen Oriental Journeys is a sole proprietary with no shopfront, no staff or overhead costs to cover. We collaborate with dedicated professionals from each destination with no middlemen. We pride ourselves with over 35 years of studying, teaching, researching and travelling throughout Asia. Our outstanding tour packages are 'one offs' for individuals as well as small groups and we only operate 3 - 4 specialized group tours each year. Our sole focus is on the cultures and arts of Asia. We are passionate about what we do. It's that simple really.

BESPOKE JOURNEYS:

Solo or just a couple of travellers? Zen Oriental Journeys has many repeat clients who like to travel independently, entrusting us to exceed their expectations when planning and operating a tour just for them. Our innovative itineraries are tailor made just for you. From Turkey to Tokyo we can create the trip of your dreams. Please contact us to discuss your individual itinerary.

WHY ARE SMALL GROUP JOURNEYS FOR YOU:

Our small groups range from a minimum of 10 to a maximum of 20 participants with the following benefits:
• Less time spent waiting for others
• More space on touring vehicles
• Stay in boutique hotels, havelis, palaces and Riyadhs, not just large hotel chains
• Develop friendships with like-minded travellers
• More time to interact with your guide
• We can include special experiences not suitable for large groups
• Connect with the local people and cultures

BOOK - MOROCCO: A VISUAL JOURNEY - ENCOUNTERS WITH THE MAGHREB

150 pages with 168 full colour stunning images by Ralph A. Ledergerber. The Kingdom of Morocco is the most westerly of the North African countries known as the Maghreb - the "Arab West". It has Atlantic and Mediterranean coastlines, a rugged mountaineous interior and a rich history of independence not shared by its neighbours. Its diverse culture is a blend of Arab, Berber, European and African influences.

This book is intended to give an insight into the country's diversity. A destination with a myriad of subjects to be discovered and to be enjoyed. Fascinating! All proceeds from the book will support an NGO for development of childrens' literacy in Morocco and given personally on our next journey. Come and join us - Let's do this. Yalla, Yalla!!

The book format is Standard Landscape 25cmx20cm. It is printed on Premium Lustre Gloss paper 148gsm. It will be available from Blurb online (print on demand) as a Softcover for AUD 99.00 or Hardcover with Dust Jacket for AUD 115.00. These are the individual prices and do not include shipping which is charged extra on each individual order and is approx. AUD 23.00. If we can bulk order at least 10 and up to 19 books at once we can order them at a 30% discount which brings the price down to approx. AUD 89.00 for the Softcover version and approx. AUD 99.00 for the Hardcover version shipping included. If the bulk order is 20 plus then the discount will be 40%, which brings the price down to approx. AUD 79.00 for the Softcover version and approx. AUD 89.00 for the Hardcover version shipping included. These prices are inclusive of the donation for our charity in Morocco. So really worthwhile, it can make a big difference in someone's life and remember it's all for a worthy cause. Hopefully we can raise a sizeable amount so please share with everybody you can think of via email and all social media platforms, such as Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, Twitter etc. I am sure a lot of people would love to have a memento and others who haven't been yet would love to see what they can expect. Please order directly by sending an email and mention your shipping address. You will then receive a PayPal request for payment, which you then can pay directly with your credit card or from your bank account without having to be a PayPal member.
