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.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Malaysia Tour

Diverse and culturally rich, this trip captures the very essence of Malaysia. From the contrasting cities of ""KL"" and Melaka, to the natural wonders of the world's oldest rainforest and the marine life around the Perhentian Islands, Malaysia has so much to offer the adventurous traveller. We visit the historic old port town of Melaka, where ancient Malay, Chinese and Nyonya traditional ways still abound and contrast with the European influence of a colonial past. The ancient rainforest of Taman Negara provides us with an opportunity to get back to nature, with a jungle trek and a night spent in a large cave. The unspoiled reefs and crystal clear waters of the Perhentian Islands invoke all kinds of peacefulness, which continues as we visit our longtime friends, Aziz and Asiah, on their island homestay just out of Kuala Kangsar.

After the morning call of gibbons, we take a walk through a traditional kampung, rubber plantations and on to a cascading waterfall.The regional cuisine is delicious and there might even be a chance to learn traditional cake making and sampling your efforts for an afternoon tea. On the second night of our stay we sit on the floor of a local home to eat a traditional wedding-style banquet and learn about Malay culture. Wearing a sarong and eating with our right hand are all part of blending into our environment.

Our travel style:

- Grass roots travel using local public transport where possible - minimises demand for special tourist vehicles and fuel.
- We choose small-scale locally owned accommodation and homestays where available and local restaurants and markets for dining, retaining revenue in local communities.
- Our leaders facilitate communication of our values to travellers and local communities, educating them in sustainable tourism practices.
- We employ local guides to aid travellers' understanding of local culture and etiquette.
- Small groups allow travellers to experience cultures at first hand, offering greater opportunity for cross- cultural understanding.

The night safari in Taman Negara and the snorkelling trip on the Perhentians

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


Don't expect something completely different or extreme. It is a very relaxed trip.

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 good, with a few downsides. i had hoped to see a bit more nature and I had hoped to stay a bit more in guest houses and hostellike accommodation, which wasn't the case. It was all very much resort and hotel vibe. And I would have liked to stay on the small island of the Perhentians.

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


The stunning scenery, wild wildlife (we swam with baby sharks), mouthwatering food and the friendliness of the Malaysian people. The Perhentian Islands are breathtakingly lovely and so relaxing; the homestay was absolutely charming and we ate like royalty.

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


Try everything! Don't take your best clothes as much of the holiday is spent getting quite sweaty.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


Yes.

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


Excellent.
