Your Journey

How do “Icon Holidays” work?

All our itineraries are available for departure every day of the year. Our journeys are all focused on private arrangements – your own drivers, guides and vehicles. When you want to move on, you can. No waiting for a group to finish up, or for stragglers to hold you up. Having your own team to look after only your interests is the best way to travel, and the proof is that our clients return again and again.


Our pricing is based on 4 differing accommodation styles:


- the best of the best, including premium room types


- many ‘Premium’ level hotels but with lead-in room types. Most are 5 Star properties just below the Deluxe 5 Star level.


- great hotels, well located, mostly 4 – 4.5 Star, and great value

Icon Select:

- chosen by our staff as being a bit different, often quite small and all are evocative of the country they are in. They may not always be the least expensive!


Each itinerary, no matter which level you choose, has exactly the same daily inclusions.  Pricing differences are based entirely on accommodation and not on daily activities, vehicles, guides etc

A big advantage of our program is the number of inclusions, and the variety of inclusions – Master-classes, many meals, all Breakfasts, cooking schools, traditional dance lessons (even belly dancing in Istanbul!), dinner with local families, elephant rides and much much more. Add that to your own driver, guide and vehicle and you do have great value and wonderful service at your disposal.

All inclusions are mentioned within each itinerary description.
