Small group touring

So, you’ve heard of the term small group touring but what are the benefits and why should you choose to travel in a small group? From sharing dinner with local families, visiting destinations off the tourist track, to creating lifelong friendships, we uncover why small group touring is for every traveller.

Small group touring

1. You don’t just see your destination, you really connect with your destination

Travelling in a small group size gives much more freedom when it comes to exploring a destination. Put simply, you don’t just stop by all the main sights of a destination and then pile back onto a crowded bus. Whilst you still tick off all the bucket list items a destination has to offer, you also have the luxury of experiencing things that are off the tourist track. Embark on a walking tour of Negombo's best seafood restaurants. Learn pizza making from the experts in Italy. Visit the Original Viennese snow globe factory and museum. Step back in time and head underground during a tour of Acre's Crusader city. It’s these moments that allow you to connect with the people and culture of a destination, all while still exploring the key sites of a destination. 

2. You create lasting friendships with fellow travellers

A small group size of 12 – 18 travellers means you get to know the like-minded people you’re travelling with. Before you arrive on the first day of your small group tour, you already have something in common with your fellow travellers – your love of travel and eagerness to explore and connect with your chosen destination.  Enjoy the company of like-minded travellers throughout your tour, creating connections along the way - memories and friendships that last a lifetime. 

3. You gain a greater insight from your small group tour leader 

Small group tour leaders are a crucial part of your small group tour. Each leader has detailed knowledge of a specific destination to share with you throughout your tour. A small group size gives everyone ample opportunity to talk with the leader and gain insider knowledge throughout the tour, whether that is during a guided tour or around the dinner table.
