About us

Jon Baines Tours is a specialist travel company curating medical, professional non-medical, and cultural study tours and cruises to destinations around the world.

Our wonderful team is our engine, fuel and spark. We're a tight-knit, family-owned team that combine a love of travel and life with an extraordinary range of skills and experience in our London and Melbourne offices. The co-owners, Jon and Karen, are British and Australian respectively, hence such a global presence for a boutique company. The advantage to this is local attention and knowledge with a global reach, as well as someone being on call 24/7.

Doing our bit

Local projects

We try to include visits to local community projects on our tours. These visits shine a light on the issues faced by communities, and the innovative solutions practiced. We hope our visits can help raise the profile of these projects, and we commit to providing a donation after each visit.

I have not been on an organised tour before and this tour exceeded all my expectations. The attention to detail has been tremendous and I wouldn’t hesitate to go on another tour in the future. Highly recommended.

Dinner at the Ly Club restaurant was excellent. The drinks at the Rex hotel were an experience. The visit of the Binh Tay market and the cooking class at Hao Tuc was fantastic.

Guides at Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in Edinburgh and universities in Edinburgh and Glasgow and museum in Edinburgh were outstanding.
