India

To visit Delhi is to treat and torture your senses both at the same time. With so much going on in this chaotic, explosive city, a local guide should almost be a requirement. Join a local on one of our tours in Delhi to see the sights, taste the bites, and discover just what it is that makes the incredible city of New Delhi tick.

Osaka is often overlooked as a prime destination in Kansai due to its function as an industrial and business hub. But truly, the city’s cuisine and people make up the heart of the vibrant and dynamic Kansai region. The deep south of the city is home to a plethora of historical streets, illuminated by both neon lights and glowing lanterns — a heady mix on modernity and tradition that should not be missed!

Tokyo may as well be the definition of the word ‘city’. The monumental capital of Japan is teeming with life, and if you don’t have a local to show you round you’ll probably miss most of it. Visit Tokyo with Urban Adventures to discover a slice of live in this mega-metropolis, and discover what it’s like to live in Tokyo. We’re especially infatuated with the cuisine, so if you’re foodie, pay attention!

Colombo has something for everyone, from street vendors selling various goods and tasty foods to up-market stores and restaurants. It also has a vibrant nightlife offering everything from dodgy and dark bars to expensive nightclubs that party till dawn. With its trading and colonial roots, Colombo is a mix of both old and new, and a character all its own!

Thailand

Dodge the typical tourist traps and adventure Bangkok with our local guides as they show you the unique sights, hidden gems, and busy back streets of the ‘Venice of the East’. Our tours in Bangkok explore the back streets by bike, the markets of Chinatown by foot, and canals by longtail boat. You’ll leave the city filled with local Bangkok knowledge, and know more about this dynamic metropolis than any other tourist in town.

Vietnam

Love it or loathe it, there’s no denying it — Hanoi is intense. Think street vendors calling, horns honking, and webs of traffic like you’ve never experienced. But dig beneath the crowds and chaos and you’ll find an enchanting city where a rich history melds with a complicated modernity. From Parisian architecture to busy markets to ancient temples to Communist landmarks, Hanoi has it all wrapped up in a package of sensory overload. Explore the city on a Hanoi tour and get the local scoop on this much-loved destination.

For most travellers, Ho Chi Minh City (affectionately still called Saigon by locals) is primarily the gateway to the Mekong Delta and nearby Cu Chi Tunnels — both of which we highly recommend — but there are also lots of fantastic things to explore within the city limits. From the heartbreaking War Remnants Museum to luxe shopping strips, gourmet restaurants to delectable street stalls, HCMC is a taste of all Vietnam has to offer. Get the local experience downtown or in the countryside on a Ho Chi Minh tour.

Oh Hoi An, how we love thee. This pretty city — seemingly too charming to be real — is the place you see in your daydreams when you think of Vietnam. From wandering the narrow streets of the ancient town (a UNESCO Heritage site), to biking past rice paddies in the countryside, to taking one of the region’s delectable cooking classes, there’s no shortage of things to see and do in Hoi An. But if you need some help narrowing it down, we can guide you on one of our Hoi An city tours.
