We've been taking small groups on adventures for almost 40 years. Today, we offer over 600 trips including classic ‘discovery’ small group adventures, solo traveler friendly trips, active family adventures, walking holidays, cycling trips and self-guided options. Choose from over 130 countries and explore cultures, landscapes, wildlife and communities from Asia to Africa, the Arctic to the Americas.
Expert local guides and itineraries
We understand you want to see the defining sights of a country; but we also know that it’s authentic travel experiences that really matter. We create itineraries that will take you off the beaten track to fully experience the culture of each destination and we work with local guides who are uniquely placed to add richness and spontaneous moments to every trip.
We know that where you rest your head is every bit as important as where you travel during the day, so we carefully select accommodation to balance comfort with location. That generally means you’ll stay in three-star accommodation with en suite facilities – you’ll only sleep in a tent, if it’s the best way to see the stars. Look out for details on our trip pages which explain the accommodation grade of each trip.
Small group sizes
Our average group tour size is just 12; perfect for meeting new people and getting to the heart of our destinations. The minimum and maximum size of each trip is detailed on trip pages.
Trip pace to suit you
We understand that for some, a fully-packed itinerary is the best way to experience a country – for others, some downtime to explore on your own is just as important. We cater for both ends of the spectrum and explain the pace of holidays on each trip page.
We’re all seasoned travellers ourselves, and that experience underpins our responsible travel philosophy. We believe travel should change us, not the world. That communities and cultures should benefit and flourish and that we should leave nothing but footprints behind. That is why responsible travel is at the core of everything we do, from sponsoring projects around the world and offsetting carbon emissions of our flights to supporting local communities and protecting wildlife.
