We arrange Group Tours on request for private parties. In recent years the numbers of private Groups have increased with Groups travelling, or soon to depart, to Nepal, China, India, Malaysia and Borneo, Thailand and Vietnam.
Some of the Groups have been school parties and the Tour Itineraries have included visits to schools, factories and commercial enterprises as well as sightseeing and interacting with local villagers.
Comments from the Groups
School from Cheshire – Nepal Tour – March 2008
A fantastic trip.!! This group was originally going to Tibet but the trip had to be cancelled owing to disturbances in the highland area and the border was closed. This school group of 25 visited Kathmandu and Chitwan National Park before driving to Nuwakot. The group were to stay in the homes of local families. The host families received two guests each and, since this was a school group, Explore Himalaya took care to assign students to families with children of about the same age. We wanted this trip to work as a cultural exchange tour for the students. As the group made their way back to Kathmandu, they took along with them memories that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
China Tour – October 2010
The tour was a great success and the students had a fantastic time. It surpassed our expectations, which is all you can really ask for. Tang Dynasty were very professional throughout and we were generally well looked after. A group of 26 students and teachers visited Bejing, X’ian, Yangstze Dam, Zhangjiajie and Fenghuang (Hunan) and Shanghai. Car factory visits and schools were included in the programme.
This trip to China was the second time this Group has traveled with us.
India Tour – October 2011 A Very Good, Wonderful trip and great experience !! The group consisted of 27 including 3 teachers and 24 students visited. They visited the Taj Mahal, Agra, Old and New Delhi, a Dairy Milk Scheme Plant, and a Call Centre in Calcutta. In addition rugby and cricket matches were arranged with local schools and organisations as well as attending a One Day International in Calcutta.
