Where stories begin

Small Group Tours

Immerse yourself in cultures and traditions a million miles from home on this selection of tours that include highlights and experiences shared with a smaller group of like-minded travellers.

Our small-group holidays offer you the chance to explore the world beyond the well-known sights and better-trodden paths. As part of a group of no more than 24 (and usually just 16-20) you'll be able to travel in smaller vehicles and enjoy experiences and encounters (and even stay in wonderful little places) that are unavailable to larger groups.

Whether you're meeting a Keralan coconut farmer, a South African fisherman or an inhabitant of Lake Titicaca's floating islands, or simply discovering a corner of the world best explored in a smaller group - like Kenya's Maasai Mara - these holidays will lift the veil on some fascinating places.

All our small-group tours are led by friendly, professional tour managers and local guides, and often stay in homes and hotels where the owners will happily share their everyday experiences and family traditions with you.

Explore a less-travelled corner of the world. Return to a favourite destination and delve behind it's monuments and natural wonders. Or simply share a special experience with a smaller number of new friends on a very special small-group tour.
