Travel with us and you'll not only experience a fantastically organised tour but you'll come back ready to face any challenge life brings. Below are just a few reasons why you should travel with us. If you're still not sure, call us – we're happy to meet you in person in Sydney, chat over the phone and even put you in touch with some of our previous travellers so you can hear it from the horses mouth!
Want a short version? Check out the Meo Manifesto to get a really good picture of what drives us to do what we do.
We've been there. We regularly travel to the countries we offer our tours in and have done the tours ourselves. We use only the best guides and they are tried and tested for your piece of mind. This first-hand experience ensures you receive a truly exceptional tailor-made travel service from your first enquiry through to your return home.
Our tours are tailor-made to suit your interests, time available and your fitness levels so you can enjoy your perfect holiday. Not only will you get to partake in activities that interest you but you’ll also be immersed in real experiences of the regions that you will be visiting. You won’t feel rushed or herded around like you can do as part of a bigger group.
We organise all flights, transfers, accommodation and food whilst you're on tour. You can choose your level of luxury to suit your budget. We ensure varieties healthy food are available (both local and Western) whilst you're travelling with us and can cater for special dietary needs. You'll have nothing to worry about except packing (but we tell you what to take, too)!
We provide the structure to your journey, tailor-making each itinerary to your precise requirements. We then encourage our guests to dictate the pace of travel and any points of particular interest to focus on. No fixed departure dates and an extensive choice of hotels – your holiday, your way.
We only arrange private holidays and adventures – for couples, families or a party of friends (no min or max passengers) – rather than impersonal group tours. You are never just another seat number. We will work with you to include or exclude almost anything that you like within the travel region you are interested in.
We hate travelling with millions of other people so we don’t want you to! This means endless amounts of research has gone into finding the secret gems so you get to experience a trip of a lifetime and one like no other.
All our lodges, hotels and home-stays have been tried and tested for their suitability. Plus, we provide modern and serviced transportation options.
We are not a budget operator but we offer quality tours for the best value - you won’t find our tours anywhere else with the value that we provide.
We only use the very best local guides so you get up-to-the-minute local expertise and feel safe and comfortable. They're experienced, fully qualified, professional and attentive but still up for a laugh (and often multi-lingual!).
We go to great lengths to minimise any effects our tours have on both the environment, and the cultures that welcome us as their guests and give back to the local communities or charity organisations where we can.

The Meo Adventures Story
Meo Adventures' founders Andy Pedashenko and Zoe Wilson wanted to start a travel company with a difference - providing tours that aren't really tours.
We've travelled all over the world and hate going where everyone else does and thought others must too! We wanted to provide tours that are exciting, unique and that challenge you - your fitness, mindset or view of the world.
At Meo Adventures core are our fitness adventures. This is because we know what it's like to train for something exciting, something you'll enjoy and something that will give you a sense of achievement at the end. We make a mean team traveling and trekking all over the world and competing in adventure races in Australia together.
Andy has over 10 years experience in PE teaching, the fitness industry and personal training. Andy has worked with individuals, teams and businesses all around the world from Australia to Singapore and Canada. Andy is a talented sports person, playing years of rugby and competing in long-distance running and adventure racing. He is also the avid mountaineer. Zoe is an Accredited Practising Dietitian, personal trainer and regular competitor in triathlon, long distance running and adventure races. Their shared passion for helping clients achieve a positive goal was the birthplace of the Meo Adventures idea. Their ultimate goal is to show you how it feels to complete something you never thought you could.
We aim to take you further afield and show you an experience you can't get anywhere else, because we believe "life begins at the edge of your comfort zone".
From the moment I was lucky enough to find Zoe at Meo Adventures, our experience has been nothing but extraordinary and truly fabulous. I contacted Zoe via email, and she responded promptly which was surprising given the 17 hour time difference. Zoe worked diligently with me to create the most memorable and unique trekking trip my husband and I have ever experienced. She works closely with a remarkable guide, and published National Geographic photographer, Bain who along with a wonderful crew of four, guided us along the river and into the jungle to witness wildlife that one would only see on television or in a movie. The klotok (boat) was comfortable and clean, food amazing, and the crew so professional and courteous. Zoe makes all arrangements for your hotel the night before (if needed), your flights to Borneo, transfers from the airport, and really any special requests you have. My husband and I wanted to visit the eco lodge at Camp Leakey, as well as leave the jungle early for a very early morning flight to Jakarta. Zoe easily made all arrangements, and made it very affordable! Plus, after you arrive home, you receive a photo travel book chronicling the highlights of your trip. Bain's dedication and desire to providing a stellar trip for you is evident with the breathtaking photographs you will see in your bonus book! If you want to see Borneo, and have a once in a lifetime experience with a 5 star guide, do yourself a favor and email Zoe...she and Bain really are the best kept secrets in Borneo travel!!
We had the best guide! We will be asking for him again when we return to explore east side of Borneo! Great country, lovely people, fab jungle! (Maliau Basin trekking tour)
Our Camp Leakey trip was absolutely amazing! Only thing is we wish we'd booked for longer. The kids didn't want to leave! Thank you so much for your flawless organisation. All of the staff were just fantastic. Please pass on our best recommendations for them.
Fitness Adventures were so fantastic to deal with. Zoe really went above and beyond to ensure our family had a great trip to see the orangutans in Borneo, which was a surprise for my mum's 60th birthday. Zoe organised everything for us so we didn't have to worry about a thing. All instructions / checklists were provided and Zoe checked in with us right before we left, made sure we had arrived safely and as soon as we got back to see how our trip was. Such great customer service! I know our whole family would recommend booking this trip through Fitness Adventures to anyone we meet! It's the trip of a lifetime and made all that much more enjoyable thanks to Zoe.
We had a fabulous trip! Noval was a great guide and we made friends with him and the crew. There was also Moncos, a guide in training, the captain, assistant and Norma the cook. We all got along really well and had lots of fun! We saw so many orangutans, just amazing! Thank you.
Amazing! Thanks so much guys (Zoe :)) for organising our trip - it was fantastic. I have been telling everyone about it. Andrew got some great pics of the orangutans and proboscis. Here is a happy snap of the family :) I think it could be our best holiday ever!
A big thank you to Zoe and Andy for organising our amazing trip to Borneo. Your fast communication made the booking process easy and stress free - all we had to do was turn up at the airport. Bain, our guide, is a passionate advocate of the fight to save the orangutans, and a very knowledgeable and helpful guide. When you say fully inclusive, that's exactly what it is. We enjoyed the food, accommodation and company! Tanjung Puting National Park is a special place and the team at Fitness Adventures made our trip even more memorable.
