Cultural Tours

We visit such interesting and far flung places that it would seem a pity not to investigate some of the culture of these very different  destinations. Many of our tours have the opportunity to take part in some form of cultural activity such as  just stopping off to look at rock art on a trip up Cape York, or staying in traditional gers in Mongolia, while in  others the cultural component is much more important. Our PNG Birds and Culture Tour has culminates in a visit to the Mt Hagen cultural show a spectacle of costumes and dance and our August Sri Lanka trip is designed to allow us to attend part of the Kandy Pageant. Our Japan Birds  and Culture  tour can be held at any time of the year because we are not chasing specific birds, instead we are riding the Shinkansen,  trying traditional Japanese food in traditional Japanese minshiku and visiting the Sumo wrestling school or shrines and temples with their beautiful gardens.
