What’s Special About Journeys Within

When Andrea Ross started Journeys Within in 2003, she was told she had to choose: Be a travel agent, based in the U.S., or be a ground operator, based in Southeast Asia. Refusing to be limited, Journeys Within became both, earning the tour company the reputation it has today of offering guests seamless, custom trips from when they first contact our tour consultants to when they explore Southeast Asia with our amazing team in each country.

Not only does Journeys Within offer incredible custom Southeast Asia tours to places such as Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket, Luang Prabang, Hanoi, Hue, Mandalay, Bagan, Angkor Wat and more, we also offer unique opportunities to leave these tourist hubs and get out into the countryside for an authentic experience getting to know the cultures and the people.

Seven Countries, One Team

Journeys Within has offices in the U.S. and U.K., with ground teams in Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Myanmar to ensure that all goes as planned. Our amazing guides, drivers, and staff all believe in the Journeys Within mission to give our guests the trip of a lifetime.

Founder Andrea Ross still leads guide training tours, so she personally knows every guide working for Journeys Within. Since the beginning, Journeys Within has been a family company, and even as it has grown, this idea of family has remained at its core. We may be spread over seven countries and speak multiple languages, but we’re one team.

Active Philanthropy

Condé Nast Traveler described Journeys Within as “a pioneer in philanthropic travel.” We believe that a tour company not only has a responsibility to its guests, but also a responsibility to the countries in which we live and work. Read more about voluntourism and our community support efforts.

It’s about Americans wondering if those we used to see as enemies are now in fact welcoming hosts?

And the answer is yes, yes it’s safe and yes they’re gracious, kind and welcoming hosts. You see, the Vietnam war, while still rather raw for us, is something that Vietnam had to rapidly get over. Reunification caused a lot of pain, but it forced the country to pull off the bandaid and move on in healing their country. Also, if you’ve watched the Ken Burns documentary you know that the American… Read more »
