Honeymoon ideas & advice

Stress-free booking

Laura Martin, specialist at Audley Travel, shares her honeymoon recommendations: “A good reason to book with a tour operator rather than organising your honeymoon independently is that we will take care of everything for you, including providing 24/7 support, so all you have to do is turn up at the airport and get whisked away on honeymoon. You've got enough to worry about what with all the wedding arrangements so this can be a real weight off the mind as well as insurance if anything goes wrong.”

Tips from our newlywed travellers

At Responsible Travel, we think the best people to advise our travellers are often... other travellers. They always return from our tours with packing tips, weather reports, ideas about what to do - and opinions about what not to.

We have selected some of the most useful honeymoon travel advice that our guests have provided over the years to help you make the very most of your holiday - and the space inside your suitcase.
Set aside some time to explore some of the beautiful towns and countryside around the area.
- Conor Gately on honeymoon in the Dordogne
“Malaysian people are extremely friendly and have a genuine desire to make sure you enjoy your stay to the max. We wanted adventure, a spot of luxury and a honeymoon to remember and we certainly got it!” – Hannah Rousell on honeymoon in Borneo

“Just relax and enjoy yourselves. Everything was really well organised by the operator so the only thing for us to do was have a fantastic honeymoon!” – Jennifer Warnett on honeymoon in Argentina and Uruguay

“Both Cavas Wine Lodge in Mendoza and the village José Igancio are a bit out of the way so excellent for a few days' relaxation. Great to mix with a big city like Buenos Aires.” – Katrin Nyman-Metcalf on honeymoon in Argentina and Uruguay

“It's really rewarding to explore and experience village life. Also, a suggestion for lunches would be to use local bakeries and shops rather than always going to restaurants offering buffet food.” – Joanna Brown on honeymoon in Sri Lanka
Vietnam is a large country with lots to see. Don't try to pack too much in - just pick a few highlights and spend some time in those places.
- Rachel Baldry on honeymoon in Vietnam.
“The operator really came up with some wonderful ideas. They knew the best areas to stay in, the best accommodation, including a 4 bedroom boutique hotel in Buenos Aires, and came up with original ideas for making our trip very special. The guides were all excellent, and all the pick ups and transfers worked perfectly. I can't recommend them enough.” – Kathryn Huddle on honeymoon in Argentina and Uruguay

“Do a little bit of research and identify any particular locations you want to visit or hotels you would like to stay in. But don't do so much that you cannot be surprised by the extra stops that the very knowledgeable tour guide can suggest.” – Jon Hobbs on honeymoon in Sri Lanka

“Costa Rica is a country that must be explored. It’s small so extremely achievable and so diverse, to spend all your time on a beach would be a complete waste, as would not experiencing the diverse ecosystem on offer.” – Huw Jones on honeymoon in Costa Rica
