If you want to get off the beaten track in Cambodia and see the country a little differently to everyone else, then this is the perfect tour for you. If you don’t mind walking through the jungle with rescued elephants, sleeping in a luxury tent besides a remote temple or kayaking through green, luscious mangroves, that is. And if you’re lucky you may just be rewarded with an Irrawaddy dolphin spotting in the Mekong River. If you take this tour of Cambodia you’ll see the country in a very special and unique way.

We are very proud of the holidays and service we provide our customers, and were over-the-moon to win the best Short Break Tour Operator 2014 award from the Guardian & Observer Newspaper. We also only missed best overall small tour operator by 0.8%! Many thanks for everyone who voted for us.
We are delighted to announce that we are now working with two new charities in Vietnam and Cambodia. In Cambodia we are supporting Riverkids, a tremendous charity based in Phnom Penh that works with some of the capital’s most vulnerable children and seeks to give them one of the greatest gifts of life – an education. And in Vietnam, we are supporting Hue Help, a charity that works with disadvantaged children in central Vietnam to improve their health, education and future prospects.
How do we support the charities?
We will beinviting all new customers to these countries to make a small donation to the charity in the country they are visiting when they book their holiday – and we will match that donation.
It’s a huge privilege to us to be able to support the work of both of these tremendous charities – to read our blog post about why we do this click here. To read more about Hue Help click here, or Riverkids please click here.

Bermuda is an island that is unequalled. A ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ speck in the vast Atlantic Ocean, so often overlooked and at times mistaken for one of the Caribbean Islands.

The Fleewinter difference is in the people who make it up. We are a team of intrepid travellers, who pride ourselves on our first-class destination knowledge and entrepreneurial flare. Each member of the team is fully responsible for their own region and for knowing their countries inside out. We spend a lot of time researching and travelling to our destinations. It is hard work and requires serious dedication, but the reward is in the experiences we get to share with you and the amazing freedom it gives us.
We will only offer holidays where we can provide genuine expert advice and, if we can't, then we will tell you (and often suggest someone who can).
We find we give better advice if we are able to have a quick chat over the phone. The more we get to know about you, what you are looking for and what makes you tick, the better the holiday you're going to have. So don’t be shy, pick up the phone and give us a call 020 7112 0019.
