The perfect pace – your itinerary, your way

As over 50’s, Trevor and Juanita like to strike the perfect balance between rest and relaxation along with adventure and sightseeing. Having been on many pre-arranged Japanese tours they know how hectic and tiring the schedule can be so founded Bushido Travel to offer a more relaxed alternative. Bushido Travel specialise in creating custom-made, self-paced itineraries with built in flexibility and 24/7 support.

Small group tours

Bushido Travel focus on private or small group tours (6-12 people) and provide ready-made or custom–built tour itineraries for the over 50’s. For small group tours, your consultant will accompany you as a tour leader to ensure you get the best possible experience. There’s always plenty of activities on offer but there’s also room for flexibility allowing you to stay with the group for the selected itinerary or head off and explore independently whenever you wish.

This, of course, will be on a market by market basis depending on the safety of other countries as outlined by the Australian Health Authorities.
