Creating a Tailor-Made Journey

A Step-by-Step Guide

Creating a Tailor-Made Journey

by Hannah Lockett | January 30, 2019

Creating the Perfect Holiday

Here at Links Travel & Tours we have created a selection of group tours for people to enjoy as they travel around Asia. However, we are aware that not everyone wants to travel in a group, so we offer a ‘Private Tour’ version of the group tours, so you can follow the same itinerary, at a time that suits you, with the people you want to be with.

For those that don’t see a group tour that they like the look of, we have created a selection of tailor-made itineraries, and in Japan some semi-escorted tours, to tempt you. But what do you do if these aren’t quite what you had in mind?

Well, get in touch with our experienced Personal Travel Advisers, let them know when you want to travel, where from, who with, how long for, your budget and, most importantly, where you would like to go, and they will be able to put together an itinerary exclusive to you.


To help you come up with the ideal tour, we have a selection of shorter, tailor-made options, that you can put together to make one long adventure. There are also a selection of cruises and stopovers that you can add to your trip to create your Holiday of a Lifetime!
