Your Time… to become a Local

Home Icon

For an authentic and genuine perspective of the countries you’ve chosen to explore, and to gain a deeper understanding of the place, its people and their way of life, you need to experience it like a local.

Immerse yourself in native culture…

Discover timeless customs, cultural performances and sacred sites. Meet local communities, farmers and fishermen and learn about their traditional techniques.

Enjoy a true appreciation of the destination you are in with many fascinating inclusions, from spending the night on a traditional houseboat along Kerala’s backwaters, to tea-plucking with local professionals in Sri Lanka.

…and cuisine.

Dine with a family in Jaipur, master the art of Japanese sushi making, prepare traditional meals or head to hidden hotspots to discover those places that only the locals know about.

From street food to top restaurants, local flavours are an important part of any Distant Journeys tour, and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to try local dishes and learn from local experts.

Paired with local knowledge…

Our dedicated team of local guides will help you experience your destination like a true local, even finding a few hidden gems along the way, with their in-depth knowledge of each and every location.

From advising where you can sample authentic cuisine, to introducing you to local traditions, they’re all passionate about providing you with a once in a lifetime holiday.

Let us inspire you…
