Journeys Within is a boutique Southeast Asia tour company dedicated to delivering its guests unforgettable, customized trips through Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, and Vietnam.
Journeys Within has always been both a U.S.-based travel agency as well a ground operator based in Southeast Asia – a combination that has earned us our reputation of offering our guests seamless, custom trips and an enjoyable experience from their first contact with our tour consultants to their time exploring this beautiful region 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 to get to know the cultures and the people.
Our Philosophy: Active Philanthropy
Journeys Within specializes in what we call Active Philanthropy – the idea that when we visit a country or community, our visit has a tangible positive impact. We believe that our tour company not only has a responsibility to our guests, but also to the countries in which we live and work. Condé Nast Traveler has recognized Journeys Within as “a pioneer in philanthropic travel,” while the Educational Travel Community awarded our program with its 2016 Responsible Tourism Showcase Award. We invite you to read more about our Community Support efforts.
Seven Countries, One Team
Journeys Within has offices in Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, the U.K. and the U.S. The Journeys Within director in each country is there to ensure that all goes as planned, and 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 a yearly guide training tour, 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.
Southeast Asia Travel Specialists
Whether born in Southeast Asia, expats now living in the region, or just travelers with a true love of these countries, our team members are true regional experts.
Journeys Within was recently named one of Travel + Leisure’s “Top 10 Tour Operators in the World” in 2017, and Andrea was recognized as an A-List agent. Andrea has also been recognized as a Condé Nast Traveler Southeast Asia Specialist since 2007 and a Wendy Perrin WOW List Trusted Travel Expert from the beginning, and all Journeys Within booking consultants have visited the hotels, tours and adventures we offer. It’s our insider knowledge that helps make your experience a trip of a lifetime, and it’s what we love to share most of all.
What is a Journeys Within tour?
If you read through any of the sample itineraries available on our website, you’ll notice that when you travel with us, we will arrange for an English-speaking local guide to accompany you during much of your time exploring new destinations. We certainly believe in free time to take in a new place without a filter, and can provide as much or as little as requested; however, there is also nothing like having a personal local guide on hand to help explain the cultural, historic or interesting sights in a new place.
