Odyssey offers a variety of small group tours exploring Asia and the Orient.

Visit Japan, Taiwan, or even secretive North Korea in east Asia.  In southeast Asia, explore newly emerged Myanmar or Vietnam. See unforgettable India and neighbouring Sri Lanka.

Our small group tours are especially for mature aged travellers and typically take no more than 16 people.  Most tours run for around 21 days and all are fully escorted by both a local guide and Odyssey Program Leader.
