Tours Created by LE: The Year That Was

2017 saw ‘Created by LE Tours’ come to life with thousands of our members choosing to spend their holidays on tour with us across 25 destinations around the globe.

We’ve taken people to places as close to home as the Kimberleys and as far-flung as Mongolia, Cuba, Jordan and beyond.

“Being able to launch tours in new destinations that Luxury Escapes has never been present in before, and to see this resonate with so many of our members has been fantastic,” says Head of Tours, Sonia Pilovska.

“When I reflect on the past 12 months, I’d have to say meeting all of our amazing members face-to-face at our Luxury Escapes Roadshows across the country and hearing how much they enjoyed travelling on our tours was definitely a highlight for me. Comments like ‘best tour ever’ and ‘trip-of-a-lifetime’ validate that we are doing something right as a company and inspire me to make 2018 even bigger and better.”

Tours Across The Globe

This year we’ve taken our travellers to over 25 different countries (and counting).


Turns out travellers love safaris. 2017 saw Botswana, Kenya and Tanzania topping the list for travellers in search of the ‘Big Five’ game animals, along with plenty of other mammals and birdlife…and a once-in-a-lifetime experience.


You asked, we listened. For many travellers China’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed landmarks such as the iconic Great Wall are a must-visit, so we released multiple custom LE China tours to suit the needs of everyone. From visiting rare pandas to cruising the Yangtze River, our tours did it all!

Sri Lanka

Who wouldn’t want to visit an elephant orphanage? Our Sri Lanka tours took travellers to heritage forts, along tea-trails and through cities alike for a glimpse at this emerging tourist destination.


It comes as little surprise that Morocco was a hot destination – desert nights under the stars and mouth-watering tajines are the stuff of legend amongst worldly travellers but a reality for travellers on our Morocco tour.

The Reviews

“Excellent range of excursions and so thrilling to see “for real” instead of on TV.  Our guide Maggie is a lovely, personable girl and shared some great insights into Chinese culture and history. Thank you we had a fantastic time.”
