Food Adventures

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 makes a Food Adventure different?
Our focus on these trips is exploring our destination through regional specialities, eating where the locals eat, learning to cook traditional dishes and refreshing your palate with the local tipple! Our usual grass roots style of travel is still very much in evidence and you'll still get to explore a region's highlights as well as more out of the way places under the guidance of your group leader, but there will be a lot of focus on the unique flavours of the region you are visiting.

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: Cambodia small group tour, a food adventure

As a global tour operator, we are committed to travelling responsibly and endeavour to practise sustainable tourism wherever we visit. We believe that responsible travel is about the attitude you take with you and the choices you make when travelling - to respect and benefit local people, their cultures, economy and the environment. These values are more than just words on a page; they are ingrained in our culture and the daily operations of every office and every trip.

We take care in ensuring we use local transport throughout our tours, including cyclos, remorks and bicycles and we always travel in small groups – this tour has a maximum of 12 but our average is around 10 passengers – and this enables us to stay in locally owned, small accommodation, encouraging unique connections with local people. On this tour, we stay in a traditional Khmer wooden stilt house and help the family prepare dinner before dinning in the grounds of the 9th century Banteay Chhmar ruins. The experiences our travellers have here provide them with a unique insight into local life, encourage involvement in local activity and expose them to the traditions of Cambodian culture.

In Cambodia dress standards are conservative, particularly outside of the major cities; we recommend that our travellers (both male and female) wear loose, lightweight clothing so as not to offend, particularly when visiting religious sites. We encourage our travellers to purchase souvenirs locally to support local businesses, contributing to the destination and to aid the economies of smaller villages. We visit a local village market to see, taste and purchase local ingredients, like galangal, turmeric, kaffir limes, lemongrass and more, for our Khmer cooking class. We take an evening cyclo tour of Phnom Penh and try some of the local street food, in particular, crickets; a sustainable food source and high in protein. Insects not only drive imperative financial support for locals from the travellers’ interest in such a delicacy, but also a healthy diet option.

In Batambang, we visit local villages & meet local producers of rice paper, prahok [fish paste], rice wine and then stop at the best kralanh [sticky rice bamboo] stall in the district. On our tours, we try and incorporate real life experiences with the principles of responsible travel, by showing our travellers the back story of a destination. In Cambodia we visit a small family run palm sugar producer to learn and try out a new skill; you get to taste one of the treats made from the palm sugar, a sugary caramel a little like caramel fudge.

We aim to educate our travellers as we travel, so we eat for a cause at an inspirational hospitality school which provides vocational training for former street youths in Phnom Penh.

As a company, our responsibilities don’t stop when our tours end. Our own in house foundation has been in operation for over 10 years; a not-for-profit fund that has distributed over AU$3 million to more than 70 non-government organisations since 2002, from health care, education, human rights, child welfare, sustainable development and in environmental and wildlife protection. Donations come from our travellers and are then matched by us dollar for dollar.

We run three charities based in Cambodia, The Starfish Project; a community based humanitarian organisation assisting disadvantaged Cambodians, Ptea Teuk Dong; An organisation working to improve the lives of street families and abused girls by providing education, clothing, health care and training and Green Gecko; a centre based in Siem Reap dedicated to empowering the street children with education, training, health care counselling and creative workshops. We are passionate about helping disadvantaged Cambodians to achieve goals and give them a stable support system.

Reviewed on 04 Apr 2016 by

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


There were so many! The walks through food stalls, the cooking lessons, the impromptu stops of the bus to get more street food and going to a BBQ with locals at Siem Reap.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Its a jam packed itinerary so if you need lots of downtime, it's probably not for you.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


It was really great. The only recommendation I'd have is to add in an Angkor beer tour in PP.
