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: China highlights tour

As a global tour operator we take our role in tourism incredibly seriously and endeavour to deliver sustainable tourism in all our operations. We believe that operating a tour that benefits local people, the environment and the economy is the only way to run a tour as it gives travellers first-hand experience and real life adventures, whilst supporting local economies. These are not just words on a page; they are ingrained in everything we do, from the local tour leaders on the ground to the office staff back in head office.

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. On trips like this one, travelling through Asia, we encourage our travellers to make themselves aware of the culture they are visiting and dress appropriately. Dress standards are conservative and we recommend loose, lightweight fitting clothing as not to offend, particularly outside major cities. We provide all travellers with a set of trip notes before they travel which details advice and information about the destinations they are visiting.

On all our tours, we endeavour to give travellers an authentic experience plus support the economy by using local transport and accommodation wherever possible. We often use sleeper trains in our itineraries because it not only gives travellers a real insight into local life, it also reduces added pollution. Travellers get to travel alongside local people and make connections that they wouldn’t be able to whilst travelling via private transport, thus heightening their experience.

We stay in a family run guesthouse in Jinshanling, a less popular area of the Great Wall. This enables travellers to experience rural China as well as major sites like the Great Wall and it supports the local economy by keeping guesthouses up and running in lesser-known parts of China. Travellers are welcomed with great hospitality plus dinner and breakfast are included, a great chance to sample local produce and delicious home style cooking. All entrance fees to the Great Wall are included in the price of the trip and this contributes towards the upkeep of the wall, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed site, so that generations to come can also enjoy visiting the Wall.

In Xi’an we head to the night markets to try some locally sourced, tantalising specialities such as pao mo and we encourage travellers to buy all their souvenirs from local people rather than large consumer chains. We always employ local tour leaders on all of our trips because not only does it plough imperative financial support into local communities and gives stable jobs to local people, it gives both travellers and locals real insights into other cultures.
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 also support Xi’an Huiling (meaning ‘wise spirit’) – a special Intrepid-supported project for young people with intellectual and learning disabilities and travellers can enjoy a performance of singing and dancing by the students, plus have a chance to see their artwork and handicrafts. Don’t be surprised if you’re asked to join in the dancing!
