IMPACT OF CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

The World Health Organisation has announced that Coronavirus is a pandemic, and the UK Government advice is not to undertake non-essential travel. Most countries have restricted travel access. For UK Government Advice see the government website.

Awesome Experiences will continue to take enquiries for late 2020 and 2021 travel, but is suspendingt taking formal bookings or deposits until the pandemic eases and flying becomes safe again. We expect a huge level of pent-up demand when the situation changes, but for now please use our enquiry forms, email links or leave a message on our phone number with your contact details and preferred destinations and we will contact you as soon as it becomes practical to start to take bookings again. Thank you.

 


 

Our Story

Founder William Burton had previously led both large & specialist travel companies. But he found that even for a travel expert like him, booking the awesome trips he wanted took a huge amount of time & effort. Doing it yourself takes lots of time in research & booking. And in reality 'tailor-made' companies start from pre-set itineraries, so it takes hours of negotiation & emails to turn these into what you really want - and the price increases with every change.

He took the challenge of building truly awesome trips to spectacular places meeting the needs of most busy people straight off the page - with all the highlights, exciting activities, special access to events, expert private guides, private transfers & authentic local experiences you want. 

Of course if you want to flex our featured trips a bit just call us - but for many people this won't be necessary as there are lots of choices of departure date & hotel grade bookable online and longer or shorter variants linked to our featured holiday pages....

 

 

Our team

Our team has around 100 years' experience of designing spectacular trips, and has journeyed right across the Globe in search of adventure. What really unites us is our passion for discovering new cultures & fascinating corners of the globe:

William - Founder / Chief Executive

Your favourite getaway so far?

I have done so many of these trips myself that I loved- which is why I created this company- but if I was to single out one it would probably be Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda which was incredible. The sheer size of these creatures is amazing and you get staggeringly close to these gentle giants. We do offer this trip in Rwanda, but personally if I had more time I would probably do our Uganda gorilla experience as you get to do a full safari as well - and I might well do just that!

Your favourite getaway so far?

There are so many places that I’ve loved visiting for different reasons, but Cambodia and Vietnam top my favourites. There’s just so much to see and do in these countries that I have a huge list of high points, including my interactions with the local people, the delicious food, the diverse scenery (such as the limestone islands of Halong Bay), and the life and vibrancy of the Old Quarter of Hanoi, found in its hectic labyrinth of alleys and streets. Angkor’s temples are rightly legendary too – the architecture and setting is astounding.

 

 

Amanda - Chief Web Editor

Your favourite getaway so far?

I love everything about Mexico – the culture, the food, the Mayan monuments, and the incredible beaches. I would urge anyone who visits to spend some time in Mexico City. The contrasts are incredible. You can cover ancient ruins, Diego Rivera murals, and incredible contemporary restaurants in a day. Arriving into its seething heart from the airport is something I’ll never forget.
