Whilst ordinary tour companies focus mainly on the tourist sights, with Angel Holidays you’ll have a more authentic experience. Developed by Radio 4’s Steve Carver, you’ll have real insights of the places you’ll visit, free time to explore and a lot of fun too. Please don’t expect a typical regimented tour.
Our holidays include unique experiences such as flying over Everest, staying in an old Indian palace or spending time in local’s houses. Accommodation is chosen to enhance your experience. You might stay in a riverside jungle cabin, ancient trader’s house, cruise overnight through the jungle or sleep in a monastery. Our trips are suitable for all ages with just an average fitness required.
Our exploration into Nepal includes ancient cities, the jungle and the Himalaya. In our tour of Vietnam, you’ll travel by private bus, boat, train and plane, seeing the entire exciting peninsular north to south. In Peru we’ll take you from the Pacific coast to the Andes; into one of the deepest canyons on earth, across the highest navigable lake on the planet and a train journey to Machu Picchu.
Our classic Indian road trip takes us through Rajasthan; the cultural heart of India. Here you’ll ride camels in the desert, see traditional villages, romantic old cities, palaces, desert citadels, the Taj Mahal and even the ‘Exotic Marigold Hotel’. Our Exotic Marigold hotel experience, is much like the television series, and has been developed with the kind help of the TV production team. Here, you see what it’s like to live and retire in India, living in the heart of Jaipur.
Our relaxed trip to Kerala gives you a taste of the exotic, with atmospheric old Cochin, tea and spice plantations, an overnight cruise through the backwaters and time by the Arabian sea.
Coronavirus update: Our office continues to operate as normal. For complete peace of mind, you can now reserve your place(s) on any of our holidays with ZERO DEPOSIT. Later in the year, once we know a tour can safely go ahead, we will ask for a deposit at which point you can decide. If any of our tours are subsequently cancelled due to Coronavirus ALL DEPOSITS ARE 100% REFUNDABLE. In 2022 we’ll also see new tour to the Ukraine (June) added to our programme. We’d like to thank our customers for staying with us, and look forward to exciting holidays in the future.
Loyalty Discounts: Many of our customers enjoy our more authentic way of travel and come back again and again for more holidays. We’re now offering a further £25 discount per person, for each previous holiday you’ve been on. This means if you’ve been on 4 previous holidays for example, you’ll receive a £100 discount from your next holiday!
Please note, bookings for our trip led by Basil Pao from the Michael Palin team are now closed.
Angel Holidays is ethical too. We’ve helped orphanages and elderly persons’ homes and employ local people in the countries we operate. Our tours are very competitively priced and you’ll enjoy the feeling of independence whilst having the support of travelling with a group; with tour leaders, guides and helpers. You’ll be given the freedom to choose to join our free daily experiences or explore on your own. You’ll have a lot of fun too.
