We appreciate that sometimes the hardest part of a holiday is just getting to your destination. Airports can be big scary places and usually difficult to navigate. So here at Phillip Basham Travel, we have started a range of tours that are fully escorted from Clare! We'll pick you up and drive you to the airport, help you with the check in and security process, and deliver you safely to your assigned seat.

Rest assured that everything is looked after once you arrive as well, you can look forward to comfortable transfers to your accommodation, room check in, and an introduction to your Tour Director.

Join us as we explore all the corners of the globe; experiencing new cultures; seeing new sights; and making new friends.

  • A few extra pieces you can expect on our tours include
  • The services of a Phillip Basham Travel consultant throughout the entire trip
  • Visas for Australian Passport Holders (where applicable)
  • A "Getting to Know You" dinner in Clare where you'll meet the other locals joining your tour and ask any last minute questions
  • Return transfers to Adelaide Airport from Clare

Have a read below of the few tours we have already organised and keep posted for others on the way!



Come and explore the bustling cities and sleepy villages of Vietnam and Cambodia along a cruise on the Mighty Mekong River!

Departing from Clare on 20 March 2021, you will be driven in air conditioned coach to Adelaide Airport for your mid-morning flight to Ho Chi Minh City (via Singapore).

Spend 3 nights exploring the vibrant city of Ho Chi Minh either on your own or join the organised city tour (extra expense). Enjoy an authentic Vietnamese dining experience at the Chopsticks Saigon Restaurant and visit the Cu Chi Tunnels built by resistance fighters during the Vietnam war. Next we travel to the Mekong Delta to board our ship- the RV Apsara. With her sophisticated design and premium facilities, we're sure you'll enjoy sitting in your balcony suite watching the unique scenery sail by. Our tour ends in Siem Reap, but not before we meet the adorable children of Opportunities of Development thru Art- an organisation that offers educational support; and a sunset tour of Angkor Wat temple complex.

Finally it is time to come home. Your consultant will help you through Siem Reap and Singapore Airports until you land in Adelaide where they will help you to the coach and then you're home bound to Clare.
