Small group adventure - Comfort trips

What is a small group adventure?
It's a great way to travel! Whether you are travelling on your own, with a partner or with friends, a small group trip is a fantastic way to see the world. You'll travel on a fixed itinerary that has been designed to help you discover the best of region. From the known highlights, the hidden gems that you won't find in the guidebooks.

Itineraries run on set departure dates, accompanied every step of the way by an English speaking local group leader. You chose the itinerary and the date that suits you best and you book on.

Why travel on a small group adventure?
Small groups allow us to explore where larger tour groups can't. Our maximum group size of 16 travellers allows us to use local transport to get from A to B, to visit rural villages, spend time with the locals and even stay at a local home overnight, and it allows us to give our travellers genuine, real life experiences of the countries we are visiting; what you'll be doing and how you'll travel depends entirely on your chosen itinerary.

Is an adventure right for me?
The word adventure means something different to everyone, and our range of trips reflects that. Whether you want to explore local markets, visit out of the way temples and meet local people or go on an early morning safari drive searching for the 'big five', we'll have a trip for you. If you are looking for a physical challenge such trekking the Kokoda Track or summiting Kilimanjaro, we can help with that too.

So what can I expect on this trip?
This is one of our Comfort trips, designed for travellers looking for more inclusions in their itinerary, a higher standard of accommodation and more focus on private vehicles over public transport.

Comfort trips are aimed at the adventure traveller who wants to discover the world up close, but with some creature comforts along the way. Dependent on the itinerary, there may still be a night multi-share accommodation (at a homestay for example), but this will be to ensure you don't miss out on a fantastic experience. Camping trips will usually stay in permanent, tented camps or some of the safari options may be lodge based.

You'll stay in predominantly 3 ½ star and above tourist class hotels with private, en suite facilities, although some itineraries will still include the opportunity to stay with a local family, spend a night on an overnight train or camp out somewhere amazing (without the hassle of putting up your own tent!).

You'll find a number of the meals are included (as per your itinerary) and when eating together we'll focus on smaller, often family run restaurants, often eating where the locals eat and ensuring that you are still getting an authentic travel experience.

Can I book my flights with you?
Yes! We are a fully ATOL bonded tour operator meaning that we can book flights from the UK as part of your holiday package. Just ask us for a quote including flights when you make your enquiry.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Borneo small group holiday

The very ethos of our style of travel is responsible; small groups on fully escorted tours, experiencing the very best of a region, a culture and a landscape, with a friendly local hand guiding the way. Our itineraries are designed to give our travellers real life experiences without compromising the part of the world through which we are journeying. This is our commitment as a global tour operator.

When visiting a destination such as Borneo, with its pristine rainforests, tropical beaches and stunning array of wildlife it becomes even more important that we as a tour operator manage our trips in a manner which allows this natural paradise to continue to thrive alongside the country’s own tourism infrastructure, ensuring that it is as stunning when we leave as when we arrive.

Environmentally, we ensure that our groups respect the region we are visiting. Our local group leader who is with you throughout the tour will gently guide the group in this respect. On the snorkelling trip off Manukan Island, you’ll be briefed on how to behave in the marine environment to best protect the fragile eco-system that exists beneath the waves. You’ll learn about the work taking place with the orangutans at Sepilok and the proboscis monkeys at Labuk Bay, without harming the efforts taking place to re-introduce these amazing creatures back to the wild. And you’ll journey by boat down the Kinabatangan River, observing, but not affecting the array of wildlife that makes its home on the shores.

As a company that operates a carbon neutral policy, we offset the ground emissions of all our passengers on all our trips. On this journey through Borneo, that equates to 369kgs of carbon offset per passenger, per departure! We also offer all our travellers the opportunity to offset the cost of their international travel with us. Since 2007 we have offset over 45,000 tonnes of carbon emissions. That's equal to approximately the amount of carbon that 2,796,047 trees would absorb over 10 years, or taking over 4,753 passenger cars off the road for an entire year!

In addition to operating responsibly travelling through the natural world, our trips also try to look after the communities we meet along the way. We recruit our group leaders and drivers directly from the regions through which we travel, developing their skills and offering regular employment. We source the produce and supplies we use on route from local merchants, eat where the locals eat, stay in comfortable, privately owned hotels and chalets rather than larger chain hotels and encourage all our passengers to purchase souvenirs in local craft markets and smaller shops, again supporting local enterprise and encouraging traditional skills.

As a company we acknowledge that our responsibilities don’t stop when our tours end and in Borneo we have an ongoing project whereby we work with HUTAN, the Kinabatangan Orangutan Conservation Program. The purpose of the project is to study the lives of orangutans and develop innovative solutions to preserve them. This support comes in the form of donations from our own not-for-profit foundation which is part funded by donations from our travellers. In this instance its helps support a team of 12 research assistants and helps ensure the future of these magnificent apes on our planet.
