We've done the hard work so that you don't have to. We support you before your trip, during your trip, and when you return. While abroad we can be contacted 24/7 to resolve any unforseen issues.

Experienced travellers know that all trips include an element of stress, frustration and risk. Asian countries have different cultural values and varying investment in infrastructure, hygiene and medical standards. Travelling always requires a level of open mindedness, patience and cultural acceptance. However, good preparation significantly reduces risks.

The team at GetAboutAsia is proud of our commitment to do everything we can to give you peace of mind, so that you can travel with the confidence of knowing that a dedicated team of professionals is working behind the scene to avoid issues before they arise.

"In September we travelled to Vietnam on a private tour organised by GetaboutAsia. The organisation prior to the trip was excellent with GetAboutAsia amending the program to suit our needs and expectations and of course limitations. Once in Vietnam all our guides were excellent and went out their way to ensure we had a great time and heaps of fun. The drivers in each place also ensured we stayed safe and were excellent drivers." — Don Cocking and party, Kingelsey WA , September 2016

"The planning process was excellent resulting in a truly outstanding vacation to China, Cambodia, Laos & Vietnam tailor made for us. We travelled on 16 aircraft, 15 boats, 4 bullet trains & various bicycles, tuk-tuks etc, had 14 tour guides & everything went exactly as planned - a significant achievement & very impressive! Thanks to your recommendations we visited places off the beaten track, which really made it feel like an adventure rather than just a holiday. Many thanks - we'll definitely be booking our return trip with GetAboutAsia!" — Nigel & Annie Dale, Berkshire UK, April 2016

"It is not very often we go to the trouble to write a review on our holidays however we felt in this instance we should make a few comments. The service and assistance both here and whilst away provide by GetAboutAsia was excellent and could not have been any better. Also the guide was excellent and we can definitely recommend GetAboutAsia for anyone wishing to travel to China." — Steve Potter, Western Australia, June 2015
