BESPOKE JOURNEYS BY ETG
Crafting bespoke holidays is the core of what we do at Experience Travel Group. With each bespoke trip, our consultants tailor every element to you, from travel times to guides, from hotels to illuminating experiences. An in-depth consultation and highly personalised service are key: we believe that taking the time to get to know you always results in a better holiday experience. Similarly, we believe taking time to immerse yourself in a destination is much more enriching than a quick dash to a must-see monument. Even if you like to stay active, we advocate slow travel that allows space for discovery and connection.
Of course, by nature, these holidays are all individual - but take a look at the following sample itineraries for inspiration. Don't hesitate to get in touch for a complimentary personalised itinerary.

REVITALISE HOLIDAYS BY ETG
For this new era in travel, we’re paving the way for a different kind of restorative holiday. Revitalise is a collection of eighteen trips that capture the essence of an ETG holiday - discovery, connection and authentic experiences - with a holistically relaxing twist. Rather than dashing in and out of planes, trains and automobiles or box-ticking famous sites, we've slowed down the pace. Whether it's an immersive safari, a gentle cruise on the Irrawaddy River or a wellness escape in Sumba, the aim is to reflect and revitalise, while still engaging with the world around you. Choose from six themes and start dreaming; this is the kind of relaxation every curious traveller needs.
Popular Revitalise Holidays
SAFARI AND SOUTH COAST CHARM
Follow the curve of Sri Lanka’s southern coastline from Gal Oya, an immersive national park brimming with unique experiences, to the Last House in Tangalle, a beachside hotel at the end of a long stretch of sand. By taking in these two remote locations, you will get a sense of the island’s dazzling natural wealth at just an inch off the map from the well-trodden path.
Timeless Thai Terrains
Often in Thailand, travellers feel the need to rush around and tick off the sights. But by focussing on just two contrasting regions, this holiday will help you discover the culture and extraordinary beauty that the country is known for. In the first, you can explore temples and jungles by day then return to the authentic countryside by night; in the second, experience the ultimate Thai beach escape.
Beauty of Bali, Kings of Komodo
Indonesia is home to thousands of islands of infinite possibilities, with landscapes that feel beyond this earth. This holiday encompasses two fantastic hotels in Bali and Komodo. Each property feels off-the-grid but is surprisingly simple to reach, and offers stunning surroundings with the opportunity for once-in-a-lifetime encounters with the natural world.
FAMILY HOLIDAYS BY ETG
Done the right way, family holidays in Asia can be truly life-changing. But to achieve such a transformative experience, we think the key is to look at where your family is at right now. Rather than thinking about the best family holiday destinations in a generic sense, consider why it is you are travelling. Is it your first big trip outside of Europe, and you want to show your little ones cultures new? Are you trying to bond with jaded teenagers, celebrate the end of exams, or simply step outside of your comfort zone? Discover the four types of holiday that we think every family will be able to relate to, and let us help you get every one of you excited for your next great trip.

THE REVITALISE COLLECTION BROCHURE

Our latest brochure features six holidays from the collection, one taken from each theme.

If you're like us, you really care about travel. A significant part of your year will revolve around it; the planning and excitement beforehand, and the stories you share on your return, all matter almost as much as the adventure itself. What's more, many of us prefer to spend money on experiences, rather than material things. So, trust us: we know how important it is to get your holiday right. Here's how we do it.
