Don’t just take it from us, hear it from our clients:

“We’d certainly like to take the time to thank you for making this trip the incredible experience it was. The decisions made by Odyssey World with regards to accommodation, activity, length of time between things, choice of guide etc were all absolutely brilliant. And the organisation was amazing! We really did feel like royalty, being welcomed and helped from place to place with such consideration and seamless precision. … I just want to say thank you again for your help – Rob and I got so much from your expertise and were made to feel like we had a friend on the end of the phone to consult at any time”


Your holiday is 100% financially protected by our status as a fully bonded ATOL Tour Operator and through International Passenger Protection Insurance. Having the protection when booking through a fully bonded tour operator means that in the unlikely event anything should happen to Odyssey World as a business, your money or holiday is protected.

Also if there are any unforeseen problems on the ground, such as delays, which might affect your holiday, our specialists are at hand 24 hours a day proactively solving them to ensure your trip runs smoothly.

“We had an amazing time thanks to you – I appreciate all the time and effort you made to make this holiday unique and exciting. Our outbound flight was massively delayed (4 hours), which meant we missed our connection in KL to KK. … We were really concerned that we would miss our hotel transfer and were so pleased that the Borneo rep had waited the extra 4 hours to meet us.”
