Food Tours to Asia and India

Don't book another tour without reading this

Grab your passports, pack your bags, break out those frequent flyer miles and make your way to Thailand, Indonesia or India and join us on a fantastic journey of food, exploration and cultural history.

From fiery volcanos, desert palace hotels - and desert islands, camel fairs, historic ruins, trendy restaurants, street food and even a few miracles, our tours are limited to just 8 people who have a sense of adventure and would rather die than go on a package tour and eat hotel buffets each night.

Led by a Spirit House staff member and limited to just 8 people per tour, a Spirit House Tour is like travelling with a bunch of fun-loving friends to some of the most amazing destinations in Asia and India.

Ready to get off the beaten track, abandon the tour bus and hit the road less travelled?

"Tours are limited to 8 people."

We have put together a stunning range of experiences for you which you can download below. Each tour has been hand-crafted to give you and 6 others an adventure for all the senses. From fantastic food to the big sights such as the Taj Mahal, Angkor Wat, or the remote Spice Islands made famous in the book Nathaniel's Nutmeg.

We pack in history, culture, amazing sights and sounds as well as food and possibly a dragon.

The best part is you don't need to organise a thing - simply make your way to the starting point using frequent flyer miles or cheap fares and we will take care of you every step of the way after that.


Bangkok to Angkor Wat

Thai Angkor Brochure

Indiana Jones by day, restaurant critic by night - that's the best way to describe this 8 day tour. Ancient ruins, local markets, street food, a miracle or two and an amazing cooking school are explored by day.

At night we step up a gear and discover some of Bangkok's best restaurants and bars - places tourists never go. You will be staying in boutique hotels with access to fantastic shopping, eating and drinking - what are you waiting for?

Travel Insurance is mandatory on all our tours. Unless you can predict the future then you should lock in travel insurance once your deposit is paid. A good insurance policy will cover you not only while you are on tour but also if certain circumstances arise that prevent you from leaving in the first place - such as a medical illness or family emergency.

We have worked with Allianz Insurance and they understand the nature of our tours and provide excellent cover. As with anything in life, it is important you contact them directly and discuss your individual needs etc. and you can do that through their website.
