With social anthropologist Shirley Campbell by your side, you'll enjoy this unique look at the people of Northern Vietnam and Laos. You'll meet with locals from Tai Dam and Tai Kao minority groups, and even join monks for their morning prayers in Luang Prabang.
In 2017, our sister company, Travcoa, moved their headquarters from Los Angeles to the Zegrahm office in Seattle. We are thrilled to collaborate with them on an outstanding lineup of expeditions that offer luxurious accommodations and immersive cultural experiences in some of the world’s most exotic locations. With more than 60 years of experience in planning journeys for sophisticated, discerning travelers, Travcoa has built a reputation of delivering meaningful, memorable, and valuable experiences. Journeys are limited to 12 to 18 guests, allowing for an intimate experience and the chance to get to know your fellow travelers. Exquisite accommodations are a hallmark of these Journeys; you’ll stay in spacious rooms with stunning views, at the world’s leading hotels and select boutique properties. You’ll also enjoy the services of an experienced Travel Director (your personal trip concierge) and expert local guides.
Many years ago, Travcoa created the most generous and flexible travel dining plan imaginable: dine wherever you wish, and we’ll pick up the bill! It’s really that simple, with no limits on where you dine or the price of a meal. Enjoy any restaurant, inside or outside of the hotel and, with the exception of caviar and alcohol, it’s all included in the upfront tour price; even the service charges and gratuities. This all-inclusive experience allows for less complexity while traveling and is the perfect setup to enjoy your journey. In that spirit, you can enjoy the flexibility of dining anywhere , giving you the peace of mind that comes with knowing the cost of your adventure before you even depart. Whether you make advance reservations for fine dining at a renowned, Michelin-starred restaurant or discover a small, family-run place for yourself, we believe it’s all about thoroughly enjoying the moment—without having to worry about unexpected costs.
