Maldives Tours

Thoughts of Maldives holidays evoke pictures of beautiful palm-fringed islands with great beaches, stunning coral reefs, hot sunshine and warm turquoise seas; and high prices!  Well, we've devised a program of Maldives tours that see and experience a lot more of this beautiful island nation than most holiday makers ever do, and at much cheaper prices as well.

Instead of staying in one resort, our Maldives tours visit various different local islands and stay in comfortable friendly guesthouses or on board safari boats. We include a wide range of activities so you see the best of the Maldives' classic attractions as well as gaining an insight into the local way of life. These include several snorkelling trips; day trips to beautiful palm-fringed picnic islands; beach BBQs; a sunset picnic meal on a deserted sandbar; several meals with local families where you can try the local cuisine; evening fishing trips with local fishermen where you can try some traditional hand and line fishing and cook your catch afterwards; and tours of Male city and various inhabited local islands.
You also have plenty of free time to relax on the beach or try some more watersports activities including a wide range of scuba-diving options, more snorkelling, sea kayaking, surfing, windsurfing and catamaran sailing.
Various extension options are available to add more days on the local islands, or to visit one of the Maldives' famous luxury resort islands.

All in all, our small group tours to the Maldives offer you an interesting, fun and exciting alternative to the average beach holiday at a much lower cost, and at the same time give you plenty of time to unwind and relax in one of the most beautiful places on earth.

These tours are also available to book privately, and don't forget to also check out our Maldives on a Shoestring tour (formerly Maldives Magic).
