Travel Asia

Experience Asia: a land of diversity, colour, and mind-blowing sights. From the dizzying heights of the Himalayas to the verdant tropical islands of Indonesia, Asia offers a wealth of natural variety at every turn. Let the spirituality of this region rub off on you at temples, monasteries and sacred sites and be enveloped by its age old traditions and mysticism. Sample the zingy flavours of some of the best cuisines in the world at a street side café, on a rooftop restaurant overlooking an emerging cityscape or beachside with your feet wedged firmly in the sand. The Indian Subcontinent, China, Japan and South East Asia are our specialist regions, so let us guide you towards your perfect tailor-made tour of this enchanting part of the world.

There are no strangers, only friends you have not met yet.
William Butler Yeats

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
