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

WE ARE DIFFERENT:

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.

BENEFITS OF SMALL GROUP JOURNEYS:

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

ANYONE FROM ANYWHERE CAN JOIN:

Any traveller from anywhere is able to join. Flights can be arranged from the UK or from any other country. We will send the recommended flight options when they are available for booking or alternatively you may make your own flight reservation and inform us of the details, or we can arrange flights on your behalf. We will ensure you are met at the arrival airport and transferred to the first hotel to meet your fellow travellers. Just contact us. We are here to help.

MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT:

We are now agents for the magnificent suite of Asian luxury river journeys offered by Pandaw cruises.
We are also agents for Coral Expeditions’ small ship journeys to Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, the Spice Islands, and the small islands of the Indian Ocean.

We offer a ‘one stop shop’ taking all of the issues out of booking on-line and making payment over the internet.

BOOK: MOROCCO - A VISUAL JOURNEY

150 pages with 168 full colour stunning images by Ralph A. Ledergerber. Book format is Standard Landscape 25cmx20cm. Available from Blurb online (print on demand) as a Softcover or Hardcover with Dust Jacket.

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!!
