The world’s a big place and it’s human nature to get out there and explore it. The only thing is, it’s a really big place. And there’s a plethora of different languages to learn, borders to cross and cultures to negotiate. Small group adventure travel makes these things easy and allows you to maximise your precious time off. Instead of worrying about logistics, you can focus all your energy on having the experience of a lifetime.
Our groups are small enough to feel like you’re exploring a destination independently, but big enough to create a good social vibe. Group size will vary depending on where and how we’re travelling, but our average group size is about 10. We’ve found that’s a great number to let you connect with the people you meet without feeling like you’re just a face in a crowd.
We’ve put years of research into our itineraries, operators and accommodation so you can focus on the real life experiences. So why spend hours agonising over every detail of your adventure when you can leave it to someone who lives and breathes your style of travel? Travelling solo on a small group tour has its perks too - it means ready-made friends who are itching to explore just like you.
Just the right balance
The best small group adventures strike the perfect balance between planned activities and ‘you time’. After all, we don’t want to cramp your style – it’s your holiday. Although we do have an itinerary to stick to, there are always opportunities to make the journey a little more you. Found a cafe you want to try? Want to add-on an Urban Adventure? There's always room for improvisation and an adventure of your own.
You might notice that we offer four styles of travel, all of which come with more inclusions than you might expect on a typical group adventure. While other group tours might drop you off at the Taj Mahal and leave you to fend for yourself, our expert local leaders will give you great value every step of the way.
