Tailor Made Cultural Holidays

The desire to get under the skin of a place and its people is what makes Turquoise Holidays clients special. This has been an integral part of the Turquoise ethos since the day we opened our doors.  Originality and authenticity are fundamental ingredients to every holiday we tailor make, whether it’s a fly and flop holiday to the Caribbean or The Maldives, or a dream-come-true venture to the most far flung corners of Australia or New Zealand.  We work with hand-picked private guides on safari throughout Africa and local experts in every city in which we specialise. From historians in Galle, Sri Lanka to chefs in Hoi An, Vietnam… it is the people that you meet on holiday that breathe life into places. We endeavour to take our guests into hidden corners of their land which are off limits to the vast majority of tourists. Beyond the resorts and beaches, discover the ancient temples of Cambodia and remote islands of the South Pacific where centuries’ old beliefs still live on; villages where traditional markets and customs thrive, and communities where time has stood still and daily life hasn’t changed for eons.


The personalities of people who have dedicated their lives to their very own brand of hospitality shine through in our collection of family-run resorts, where the care shown by islanders and villagers is evident to everyone who stays. One of our favourite examples is Papa Jake, a wonderful man who has welcomed every single flight into the Cook Islands for the past 40 years with his wonderful guitar playing and well known local tunes.. it’s the little details which bring a destination to life and make memories to last a lifetime. And as your tailor made holiday is created with our specialist team we will ensure you experience as many of these as possible.
