Finding serenity in Ha Long Bay

It’s 6am and already half of my group is standing on top of a boat, a houseboat, in Ha Long Bay. Around us the boats are just waking up, lights slowly coming on as those on board peer out the windows at the jaw-dropping scenery around them.

Exploring the Inca ruins and coca leaves in Cusco

They say when you first arrive at a new destination that sits at a high altitude - anything over about 2500 metres - you should rest immediately; lay down and do as little as possible. But when we arrive at Cusco, by plane, at an altitude of about 3390 metres, our guide Leo has other ideas.

Five awesome things to do in Dubrovnik

Whether or not you’ve watched Game of Thrones, you’ve no doubt seen images of Dubrovnik and it’s impressive wall.

And even if you’re not actually into Game of Thrones this city is sure to charm you with its cobbled streets and beautiful stone buildings all set within the giant fortified wall. But what do you actually do to make the most of your time in this city? Read on to discover our top five things to do in Dubrovnik

Braving the tunnels and traffic in Ho Chi Minh City

Our first stop in Ho Chi Minh City, in Vietnam, is the Cu Chi Tunnels. We’ve all heard about these tunnels, a system of underground pathways used by the Viet Cong in the Vietnam War (known as the American War here in Vietnam). But we can’t quite imagine them.

21 useful things to take with you on your next holiday

You’ve booked your trip, know how you’re getting to the airport, have your visa organised and know who’ll be meeting you at the other end. All that’s left to do is pack.

For some, this is a really exciting part of the trip; it means you’re finally going! But for many thinking about what to take can be stressful. You know to pack your passport, wallet, clothes and toiletries, but what else should you take on the road with you? What else will make travelling in another country that little bit easier? And most importantly, what could possibly be worth carrying extra weight and taking up more room in your suitcase.

We asked our Two’s a Crowd tour hosts and travel consultants what three things they always take away with them. Some may just surprise you!

Camping under the stars in an African jungle

There's something quite special - and just a little surreal - about camping under the stars... in the jungle... in Africa but that's how our experience in Ngara Ndara forest in Kenya began.

Taking in the pagodas and temples in Myanmar

Our tour of Myanmar began in Yangon, a vibrant, bustling city with an ample supply of Buddhas and pagodas. While our day was spent exploring old colonial buildings and smaller pagodas, viewing huge reclining Buddhas and relaxing by Kandawgyi Lake, the highlight was certainly saved for sunset.

Hoi An – a place of peace, tranquility and so much food

Ok, so if I’m honest Hoi An was the highlight of Vietnam for me.

The most stunning town/city, everything in walking distance (pretty much), and so much to see and do.  The architecture is a blend of French, Chinese, Japanese and of course Vietnamese, terracotta tiles and bright, stuccoed buildings. And to top it off, coloured lanterns light the streets leaving the whole city feeling like a magical wonderland.

On Safari at the jaw-droppingly beautiful Il’ Ngwesi

I had been told by all in the Two’s a Crowd office and Brooke from RAW Africa Ecotours (our partners on the Kenya and Uganda tours), how jaw-droppingly stunning Il' Ngwesi community lodge is, but words just don't do it justice.

Coconuts, kava and crab races in Fiji

When you think of Fiji you think of gentle lapping waves, coconuts, brightly coloured fish and palm trees.

Imagine then, waking up every morning, hearing the ocean crashing outside, feeling the lull of the waves gently rocking your boat and knowing that each day, you’ll find yourself on a different island, in a different paradise.

Such is a trip on board the MV Reef Endeavour, cruising through the islands of Fiji.

How to choose a tour that’s right for you.

How to choose a tour that’s right for you.

There are so many tours out there - different companies, different types of tours, different destinations - that sometimes it can be hard to choose the right tour for you.

Your friends had a fabulous time in France, should you go? Your sister went to England and it was the best tour ever, is that the tour you should do? Still someone else went to India and fell in love with the country – should you go to India?

The truth is, there are many things to consider when deciding what kind of tour to do and how to get the best out of your holiday time and it all comes down to you.

Three things to love about the Galapagos Islands

Three things to love about the Galapagos Islands

The first thing that strikes me about the Galapagos Islands is the colour. The water is the bluest blue I’ve ever seen and the greens are almost fluorescent.

 

We’re travelling to Isabela Island, our first stop in the Galapagos Islands from Santa Cruz, and even with the swell of the waves made by our speedboat ploughing through the waters, the colour is striking.

 

One of my tour group members leans her head over the side, lapping up the breeze, the smell and taking in the amazing scenery around us. Her face is a vision of pure happiness. I know how she feels.
