This September, experience the charms of China, a land of diversity and scenic contrasts that has something in store for every traveller, whether it is pristine landscapes, bustling cities or its rich culture and history.
In the company of like-minded women, wander through markets and streets, experience the Chinese cuisine, visit the Great Wall, mingle with locals and monks, laugh and make memories that you’ll cherish and reminisce, years from now.
It’s no surprise that scaling the Great Wall is difficult, if not impossible. So, hop onto a cable car, fly to the top, and get a beautiful view of mountains and canopies, with glimpses of the Wall all along.
Finland was by far the craziest place we decided to go, and Byond ensured we had a memorable white Christmas. Everything from the Northern Lights, to the glass igloos and we even got to meet Santa. Plenty of memories and lots of photos later, we'd love to thank the team at Byond for firstly suggesting such an amazing destination but also ensuring every aspect of the trip was perfectly executed.

I cannot stop raving about the lovely time I had traveling with Byond to Bhutan. I was initially slightly skeptical, always being a solo traveller and not knowing a single soul on the trip. All my fears were alleviated right from the start till the end… I could not ask for a better travel experience and I look forward to traveling with Byond again.

Travelling with Byond was my first "group" travel. I Was very apprehensive, but was pleasantly surprised with my group, (aged 24 to 62), because each and everyone had their own fabulous characteristics that created this bunch of fun loving adventurous ladies who pushed me beyond my limits. Everything promised by Byond was true to word. Well planned and executed.

My experience with Byond in Ladakh was very well coordinated I and felt very well cared for by the team, beyond what I've experienced with any sort of excursion.(maybe that is where you got the name!!!).I can't say enough about how nice the group was and wonderful people. That…makes all the difference!

I traveled with Byond to Greece and I have many wonderful memories to share. The most favorite was definitely Santorini, the ferry from Athens and the volcanic cruise with hot springs. The resort in Crete, White Mountain safari and the wine tasting were good too. Overall, I felt that this trip was a great value for money and the experiences were very well planned. I have already been recommending Byond to many of my friends.
