Sep 17 2019


Take a journey to Epic Laos, Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia, Indonesia & Vietnam in South East Asia.


“As I sit at my desk day dreaming of our trip, I wanted to take this opportunity to personally thank-you and your team for a remarkable family vacation. 

The logistics and choices of places were ideal. The itinerary was perfect. It was a fabulous introduction to this part of the world for my family. The boat was rustic elegance and was the pinnacle of the trip. The food, the scenery and the diving were out of this world.

I look forward to creating many more adventures with you.”

Richard. R, travelled to South East Asia in July 2019

It is with great excitement that Epic Private Journeys announces its expansion into Asia and welcome travel specialist Patrick Macleod to the Epic team


Patrick has tour operated in Asia in excess of 30 years and was for many years Regional Managing Director for Ambercrombie & Kent. Brad Horn, Epic Managing Director, has known Patrick for over 20 years.


“What sets Epic apart is the quality of people it brings to bear in creating client experiences. Patrick is undoubtedly one of the best, if not the best tour operator I have ever come across. His knowledge of Asia is unparalleled. It is so very important to have this depth of experience on board to continue Epic’s ongoing success.” 


Blessed with an amazingly loyal and discerning clientele who have travelled with Epic multiple times, the addition of Patrick to the Epic team opens the door to new destinations and experiences for the growing family of Epic travellers.


Initially Epic will concentrate on tailored journeys to the countries of Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Myanmar, Indonesia and Thailand. And in due course, Epic will look to add additional countries as Patrick has also operated extensively into China and Japan.
