Small group tour:
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. Those with a two-week holiday, a small group tour will save valuable planning time.
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetLebanon is a small Middle Eastern country with a variety of different landscapes and terrains, and we are very keen to conserve this beautiful country.
While we travel between cities by bus, we do the majority of our sightseeing on foot. Spending time exploring ruins from the Phoenician, Roman and Byzantine eras and then strolling through the narrow lanes of the souqs.
All of our leaders have been trained on how to promote responsible tourism, particularly focusing on reducing the use of single-use plastic. On this trip the leader will advise you where to refill water bottles with clean, safe drink water, therefore reducing the necessity to buy plastic water bottles throughout your trip.
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.
PeopleTravelling in Lebanon means you are rarely far from a coffee seller or a stall selling fresh fruit. We regularly stop and make the most of the chance to chat to the sellers whilst we enjoy some strong, sweet, black coffee.
During this itinerary we spend one night in a simple hotel in the grounds of St Anthony's Monastery. The money from our stay contributes to the maintenance of this beautiful building dating back to the 4th century, set in the fertile Qadisha Valley.
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.
