Freedom & Flexibility

Home Icon Create your dream holiday

No tour would be complete without the freedom and flexibility to travel how you want to. Our escorted tours offer Freedom Days that allow you to explore at your own pace. Perhaps you’ll find a local cafe to enjoy, or make the most of seeing the sights? We think we’ve found the perfect balance.

Thinking about upgrading or extending your trip? Our trips also come with many upgrade options, from flights and hotels to private tours and trip extensions.

Create your perfect holiday with Distant Journeys.
