At Quality Journeys we often take alternative routes off the popular tourism trails. We also tend to use local guides so you'll get to meet, interact and connect with local people, hear their stories and witness for yourself how communities live day-to-day. You'll also experience spontaneous and 'real' moments that you'd likely miss on other 'cookie-cutter' package tours.
When and where possible, you'll stay in locally owned properties with at least one home-stay with a family. This not only injects money into the local economy but will also give your stay a more authentic local flavour.
We also try and book accommodation that's centrally located, giving you the ability to venture outside your comfort zone. This flexibility means you'll regularly be able to 'do your own thing' outside the tour's arrangements. Maybe you'll visit a local school, attend a wedding, or go shopping at the many pop-up fairs and markets that are so popular in South Asia.
