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: Jordan food adventure holiday


As a global tour operator, we are committed to operating every one of our trips in a way that respects and benefits local people, their culture and economy, while minimising our impact on the natural environment. We were proud to become a carbon neutral company in 2010 and we also offer passengers who book their flight through us the option to offset those emissions.

Our Responsible Travel Policy outlines our commitment to preserving the environment, supporting local communities, protecting the vulnerable and giving back to the places we travel. All our trip leaders, suppliers and staff are trained on these principles, and are core to us delivering sustainable, experience-rich travel.

During this trip we only use locally owned hotels that have integrated sustainability into their business. For example, all hotels on our tour encourage guests to have shorter showers and reuse the towels.We promote small group travelling, therefore maximum group size is 12. This has much less impact when travelling through rural areas, reducing our environmental and social affects.Clients and guides are briefed on local customs and general courtesy (such as asking permission before taking photographs/dress-codes/conduct in places of worship etc.) and behave appropriately.Finally, to emphasis our commitment to Responsible Tourism all clients will receive a copy of our Travellers Code of Conduct with their travel documents.

We always try and educate people in our trip notes online and when they join a trip, on the wastage around plastic bottles (especially in countries where the water might not be safe for travellers to drink). We recommend that people bring with them a reusable water bottle, water purification tabletsor use the kettle in their room to boil water and bottle it for the next day. In some instances, we try and work with hotels to try and get filtered water drinking stands in their hotel lobbies and not supply bottled water in hotel rooms. So, that hotel guests can fill up their water bottles when they leave for the day. Itís around educating hotels and tourism suppliers in a way that customer service doesnot trump sustainable tourism.


As currently we are not running any projects in this region, we try to support local communities by including their activities in our itineraries. This means your money stays in the area to benefit the local community and any of the activities done on this trip are helping the local economic development. For example, on day 3 of this trip we rise early as todayís breakfast will be shared with a local shepherd as you bask in awe of the beautiful dry countryside to hear about his traditions as a shepherd - a profession that still exists in Jordan today. Also, in Amman we visit Beit Sitti cooking school, known as one of the most innovative developments in Jordanís dining scene.

Furthermore, local leaders are used on this trip and they go through the leader training before they lead a trip. They will often do a training trip too with a senior leader to get the feel of it first.We can travel with respect as we have our Local Leader with the group 24/7 who helps educate the group on local matters, customs, culture, language etc. We know that most people want to learn when they are travelling, so we believe education on local traditions help open minds and breaks down barriers. Our local leader will help educate the people on an experience they are about to undertake or try which helps both the local and the traveller make the most of their time together.
