The 4-day/3-night Beauty and Balance Tour in Kyoto, promoted with a 10% discount, showcases the former imperial capital with guided tours of temples and castles, and stays in some of the city's finest hotels. Travelers learn how to roll sushi during a private cooking lesson, get to sample the local sake, and enjoy time wandering the quaint village streets of Higashiyama. An optional stay in a ryokan (traditional guesthouse) provides further insight into Japanese customs and lifestyle.
With 15% off the selling price, the Home of the Gods tour takes travelers through the stunning terrain of Java in Indonesia – from the ancient temple ruins of Prambanan to the volcanic Dieng Plateau. Offering variety and excitement, this 6-day/5-night itinerary includes a horse and cart ride through Candirejo village, a guided tour of Kraton, the 18th-century Sultan's Palace, and a close-up look at traditional batik-making.
Suited to travelers of all ages is the Family Adventure in Chiang Mai tour, a fun-filled 4-day/3-night trip in Thailand's northern capital. This nature-based tour lets travelers meet local hill tribes and trek through the jungle on the back of an elephant. Kids over seven years of age have the additional option of zip-lining through the treetops. Backyard Travel is currently offering 15% discount on this tour.
Backyard Travel is also offering 15% off their 8-day/7-night Best of Myanmar tour.
