Small group adventure

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 a classic style of small group adventure. You'll find your trip combines a good mix of included activities and free time, with some meals included as per your itinerary. We don't want you to feel chaperoned, it's your holiday not ours. Your group leader will be on hand to assist with organising anything you might wish to do in your free time, but how you spend it is up to you. Anything listed as included in your itinerary will be included in trip price; whereas anything listed as optional will be at an additional cost should you wish to take part.

These trips are great value, including things that you would struggle to organise independently, such as a night at a homestay in a remote village, or local guides around a remote place of interest. Transport will be a combination of private vehicle and public transport, whichever is the most appropriate for the route we are travelling; this might include train, plane, camel, tuk tuk, bicycle, boat…

On a majority of these trips you'll stay in 2-3 star accommodation, locally owned and reflective of the region you are travelling through. All solo travellers will be automatically roomed on a twin share basis with another group member of the same sex, unless you opt to pay for your own room at time of booking. There are no compulsory single supplements for solo travellers willing to share. Single rooms aren't available on camping trips, and you will be expected to help out with camp tasks such as setting up and breaking down your camp.

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.
“'Cheers', in Vietnamese is mot hai ba dzo... I tell my groups they need to practise their Vietnamese every day!”

Responsible tourism: Reunification Express holiday, Vietnam

This trip introduces travellers to the wonderful country of Vietnam. Our adventure begins aboard the Reunification Express, which allows you to marvel at the breathtaking scenery as well as to befriend local travelers. On this trip there are also plenty of opportunities to interact with the locals and learn about their way of life, for example we visit the Dong Trieu Factory to watch locals working on the traditional art of ceramics, we also visit some local houses to experience the everyday life of Mekong locals.

We always stay and eat in small-scale locally-owned establishments and every year we audit the places we use to make sure it complies with our Responsible Travel Code of Conduct to ensure minimum environmental impacts. We always use energy saver keys in hotels, for example.

We supports a number of charity projects in Vietnam including the Cuc Phuong National Park Conservation centres, which is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, breeding, research and conservation of the endangered primates of Vietnam, and the Saigon Children's Charity, who’s mission is to provide the poorest children with the education and training that will give them a fair chance in life.
