Maldives tours

Resting in the middle of the Indian Ocean, the Maldives are the ultimate getaway with their pure white beaches, turquoise waters and abundant marine life. Total relaxation beckons and, with little else to do but sit and unwind or dive, snorkel and sail, it's an ideal place to relax and recharge.

There are 1200 islands here and our specialists have used their expert knowledge of the region to produce tour ideas that showcase the islands' diversity as well as combining time on the beach with cultural stops in Sri Lanka, Dubai or Istanbul.
