Finding exciting and unique tours online is now easier than ever, with Backyard Travel's freshly launched social media set, making great deals on tours in Asia accessible to all net users. Not only does Backyard Travel offer a fantastic array of Asian tours on the official site, customers can also keep up-to-date with the latest packages and sales by following the Twitter feed, checking out the Pinterest and Tumblr pages and using the Facebook Tour Application.

By visiting Backyard Travel's Facebook page, travelers can enjoy updates on all the amazing Asian destinations featured in Backyard Travel's tours. The new tour application – Tour Radar – on the Facebook page allows users to browse and search all tours offered by Backyard Travel, and see at-a-glance what each tour entails. Facebook users can put their favorite tours on their "wishlist" or recommend them for other travelers. They can find the most suitable holiday for them by searching by budget, destination and trip type. There's also a tab where travelers can leave their tour reviews.

For up-to-the-minute notifications on travel news and tour deals, Backyard Travel's Twitter Feed is an excellent resource. Followers not only get the latest information on tour packages, they can view and share links to inspirational travel stories and be alerted to important updates regarding destinations, such as festival dates, weather details, insider tips and political issues that may influence travel.

On the Tumblr and Pinterest pages, travelers can enjoy multi-media travel deals and get great ideas for their next journey. All the destinations featured on these pages can be toured with Backyard Travel, by joining one of their diverse selections of ready-made private tours, or by a custom-made tour, created with the help of a Backyard Travel specialist. Backyard Travel also has a company page on Linked-In, where registered members can keep abreast of industry news via bi-weekly updates.

Maeve Nolan Backyard Travel Operations and Product Director says: “To be able to view tours directly on our company Facebook page is an extremely useful tool for those looking for tours in Asia. This, plus our other social media channels, gives us an opportunity to interact more with our clients, as well as providing an outlet for the general public to see our tour and travel recommendations and get general news from our region."

All Backyard Travel tours are created by local experts to provide personalized experiences not available from any other tour operator. Tours can be customized according to the individual traveler's needs – for more information or to view all tours, click here.
