Why we love these amazing small group tours
Small group tours have all the same ingredients of our regular award-winning escorted tours, however, with just a maximum capacity of 24 people, you’ll discover our small group tour holidays have a more personal atmosphere. We have over 20 different small group tours to several destinations across the world with plans to add more to our collection.
What do we mean by small group touring?
Customers will feel part of a tight-knit group, there are more opportunities to engage with local guides and discover more authentic experiences that wouldn’t be available to larger crowds. Our small group holidays are also less busy, there’ll be more space to enjoy while travelling in between destinations on our vehicles and the chance to really get to know your fellow travellers and bond over shared travel moments.
All our small group holidays are accompanied by a dedicated tour manager, who’ll not only organise the day-to-day elements of your holiday but will also be on hand to offer up their knowledge and expertise. They’ll be able to tell you anecdotes and stories, as well as bring each destination to life. Our tour managers are there to help with any issues should they arise, but most importantly, they’re there to help you enjoy yourselves.
With our small group touring, it’s also much easier for our tour managers to get to know you better, and much easier for you all to mingle at your own pace without overwhelmingly huge numbers. Recently, we’ve seen more interest in our small group tours, so we wanted to pick a selection of our favourite small group holidays that cater for less than 16 people, and explain why we think they’re a great option for your next dream adventure.

And while you’re enjoying these incredible animal encounters, the landscapes will also impress – with majestic mountain ranges and sweeping rivers.
Wild Costa Rica
In one of the most biodiverse environments in the world, it wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that you’ll spot hundreds, if not more, different species of wildlife on this mesmerising Costa Rica holiday. Adventure through five different national parks, trek through cloud forests and marvel at the forest canopies teeming with colour, noise and life. From endangered animals, insects and reptiles, be warned, bring a spare battery for your camera, you’re going to need it.

Zimbabwe - The Path to the Smoke that Thunders
Sail along Lake Kariba and watch as the wildlife gather along its shores, while relaxing with a cool drink onboard an exclusive cruise boat. This experience is the stuff of dreams – and Wild Zimbabwe delivers them on a grand scale. From spotting the endangered black rhino to crocodiles and lions, this 14-day holiday includes seven game drives, as well as a once-in-a-lifetime journey on a steam train where you will gently travel across Victoria Falls Bridge and watch a glorious sun set over the awesome Victoria Falls – the world’s largest waterfall.
