Fully Escorted Tours

Sundowners Fully Escorted Tours are designed for travellers who enjoy the freedom and flexibility of independent travel but like to take advantage of the benefits of travelling in a group (maximum 15 travellers). Each journey is carefully structured to ensure flexibility and a comfortable travel pace with time to explore, relax and enjoy the regions you are visiting. 

Your Tour Leader is on hand to ensure you not only see the sights but venture behind the scenes to explore the markets, bazaars and tea-houses, the special places and people they have come to know and value.

You can explore all our Fully Escorted Tours here, or by selecting Fully Escorted Tours in the Trip Search.

Sundowners also operate a number of Special Events - Fully Escorted Tours taking in some of the regions more remote destinations and cultural festivals.

Expert local guides
In addition to your Sundowners Tour Leader the scheduled sightseeing will be delivered by a local guide, an expert in their field and native to the country or city you are travelling through. They will be able to provide you with a unique insight into their country, life and customs as well as being able to answer just about any question you can come up with on the sights you are visiting. The combination of tour leader and local guide is unsurpassable, their sheer enthusiasm, energy and spirit are your guarantee of an unforgettable travel experience.

Special Events
Sundowners special events offer a unique perspective on our destinations through the experience of local cultural events and the challenge of new and remote destinations. From the brilliant kaleidoscope of the Naadam festival in Mongolia, the remote beauty and peoples of Tuva to the experience of winter in Siberia at Christmas time, there's something special for every traveller.

Innovative Sightseeing

Scheduled Sightseeing
Our sightseeing programs are tailored for each journey and vary according to the Travelstyle. ‘Scheduled Sightseeing’ is part of the itinerary inclusion and is generally aboard a minibus but occasionally we use the local metro or go on foot (walking tour). It includes transport, entrance fees and English speaking local guides.

City Exploring
Our Tour Leaders remain with the group at all times and provide optional further sightseeing or ‘City Exploring’ outside the itinerary. It is designed to be flexible and may change depending on group wishes
and time available and is at the discretion of the leader. Travellers will be asked to share the transport
cost, if required, and provide their own entrance fees.

For ‘City Exploring’ we use local taxis, public transport and go on foot.

Travelling Alone
If you are travelling alone on one of our Fully Escorted Tours don't worry, you're certainly not the only one. And with Sundowners you are NOT pricepenalised: we do not require you to pay a single supplement. In hotels, guesthouses and homestays we will be asking you to share with a fellow group member (of the same sex) on a twin room basis, while on trains and in gers multi share on a mixed gender basis is the norm. If you are travelling alone and request single accommodation this can be booked on selected journeys for one supplementary payment covering only hotels on the journey.
