What’s missing in travellers’ experiences in Asia? How can you get closer to the culture, the people and the flavours of this vibrant, exotic region? What makes a journey here unforgettable?
These were just some of the questions the Buffalo Tours team asked when we embarked on creating our most in-depth, personal tours yet. After all, the founder of Buffalo Tours set off on an adventure over 20 years ago to connect people and cultures through extraordinary journeys – and even now, two decades and 11 countries later, we haven’t forgotten that commitment. So when the Buffalo team began creating the brand new Local Life tours throughout all of our destinations, it was this core value that inspired each and every one of us.
After all of this hard work, the Buffalo Tours team is excited to introduce a brand new line of in-depth journeys: Local Life. Inspired by the people and personalities of Asia, these small group tours take you beyond the highlights and into Asia’s lesser-explored areas – to sleepy alleyways, bustling residential quarters, tiny street-side cafes and local foodie haunts. We meet old souls and friendly youngsters, chat with shopkeepers and street food vendors, and take the time to get to know the nooks and crannies of our favourite destinations in Asia.
Best of all, each and every tour is designed to get visitors closer to the people and cultures of Asia while respecting, sustaining and supporting local communities. We swap buses for bicycles, cars for public trains, and motorbikes for two feet – all in an effort to reduce our environmental footprint, and explore local culture the way it was meant to be explored: responsibly.
