Holiday type
Small group holidays
Small group travel is not large group travel scaled down. It is modelled on independent travel – but with the advantage of a group leader to take care of the itinerary, accommodation and tickets, and dealing with the language. It’s easy to tick off the big sights independently – but finding those one-off experiences, local festivals, travelling markets and secret viewpoints is almost impossible for someone without the insider knowledge gained from years in the field. If you’re heading off on a gap year your, perhaps – but for those with a two-week holiday, a small group tour will save valuable planning time.

The leaders are not guides – they’re not there to shepherd you around. Instead, they’ll let you know which local restaurant serves great value food – without running the risk of travellers’ tummy. They’ll allow you to avoid hour-long queues at train stations and attractions.

We like to think of small group travel as the Goldilocks option. It is independent travel without the fuss, worry and bunk beds – and organised travel without the coaches. And it’s cheaper than a tailor made tour. It’s sits somewhere in the middle – and we think it’s just about right.
What are the main benefits?
Big experiences
Have big, life-enriching experiences that would be impossible to organise without lots of time and insider knowledge.

Simplicity
Make the most of your holiday time by letting someone else do the hard work and boring logistics!

Peace of mind
Small group tours take care of the security aspects – and provide a safety net should anything unexpected happen.
Who is it ideal for?
Travellers who are short of time
If you don’t have three months to spend exploring, small groups trips let you cover more ground in less time. Your days are not spent queuing for tickets or finding hotels – so you can squeeze more into your holiday.

Solo travellers who’d like company
Likeminded travel companions plus peace of mind for those travelling alone. Single supplements are usually available – providing privacy if you want it.

Less confident travellers
Stray from the tourist trail without worrying about getting lost, and meet local people without dealing with the language barrier.
Mythbuster
“I won’t get any privacy!”
Couples and friends have private rooms, and you can choose to eat alone or not. Single supplements give solo travellers their own room.

“There won’t be any free time”
Free mornings or afternoons let you explore on your own, or just relax.

“The accommodation will be basic”
Trips are as high or low end as you like. Though off the beaten track destinations won’t have luxury hotels, this is all part of the adventure.

“I won’t like the other travellers!”
Tour operators try to create groups with a similar demographic – age, families, activity levels... Chances are, you’ll even make new friends.

“Will we be following an umbrella?”
No.
Meet a local guide
No matter how experienced your group leader, they can never make up for the knowledge gained from a lifetime in the destination. That’s why many of our trips work with local guides around the world – who invite you into their homeland with pleasure.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Cycle the Dalmatian Coast in Croatia

Environment

The Balkan region has a rich variety of wild life - from bears, foxes, wolfs, wild boors, deer, different lizards, snakes, birds to sea life and endemic plants. Our tour leader's responsibility is to inform our guests about the wildlife encountered on our trips. Spreading knowledge and awareness of wildlife is a first step to respect and protect.

Pedal power is, of course, one of the most environmentally friendly ways to travel, meaning that your holiday is a low impact option. We walk and cycle on marked paths wherever possible and don’t leave any rubbish, not even fruit residues as it can attract wild animals. The tour leaders further help to reduce the amount of waste the group produces by encouraging the use of personal bottles and refilling them rather than using multiple single use plastic bottles per day.

As a travel company we are continually looking for ways to improve and are proud to be ‘Responsible in everything we do’. Education is key, and so all staff, Tour Leaders and partnering suppliers are trained in responsible and sustainable tourism. At our Head Office, we continually strive towards a sustainable and planet-friendly working environment, including having solar panels installed and a company commitment to reducing our plastic usage.

Community

On this cycling holiday in Croatia we visit local wineries and organise meals and wine-tasting breaks during the day. These include visits to Konoba Grk in Lumbarda on Korcula Island and Konoba Tomic in the village of Vrboski on Hvar Island. They are all small and family run vineyards not visited by many tourists as they are not on the main tourist route. Along with the wine you have the opportunity to try homemade sage, mint or elder juice and purchase fine organic virgin olive oil or small cotton bags of lavender to help support the local community.

Our local travel partner employs people from all over the region, from bus drivers to local guides. We also use locally owned and run hotels and transport companies to facilitate this trip ensuring as much money as possible generated from our visit goes back to the local community.

As a company we have valuable and longstanding partnerships with UK charities Toilet Twinning and Send a Cow, plus many smaller initiatives and projects around the world. We’re members of the UK travel industry body AITO because we believe it’s important to share our knowledge and experience, as well as learn from other operators.
