Small group tours

They say that bigger isn’t always better – and that’s definitely the case with our small group tours. With intimate group sizes (we limit numbers to a maximum of 24), we can truly immerse ourselves in our destination, enjoying unique experiences that just wouldn’t be possible with bigger numbers.

We can get off the beaten path, exploring the rainforests of Costa Rica, the game reserves of Zimbabwe or the national parks of central India. And it’s not just far-flung destinations – we also offer small group holidays to the beautiful Balearic island of Mallorca.

Keeping things small lets us plan activities and experiences that aren’t usually possible for bigger groups, like witnessing the flag lowering ceremony on the India-Pakistan border, soaring over Botswana’s Chobe National Park in a light aircraft, or enjoying salt coffee with locals in Vietnam.

With small group travel, there’s a much more intimate and engaging atmosphere with the people you encounter. We partner with local guides who’ll give a unique insight into the culture and history of the areas we venture to, and who’ll perhaps show you secret spots and hidden gems that aren’t accessible to larger groups.

More information about Escorted Tour

Essentially, they’re escorted tours where we accept fewer guests than we would on our regular tours. You’ll still enjoy all the benefits of a Titan tour – effortless adventure, expertise, flexibility, value), but you’ll get a few extras as part of the small group experience.

Currently, we cap numbers on our small group holidays at between 12 and 24 travellers, depending on the destination. Every tour will be accompanied by a Titan tour manager, and sometimes a local guide as well.

A smaller group allows for a more sociable holiday experience, with everyone quickly getting to know each other. If you think you might feel overwhelmed in a larger group, these tours are ideal. Customers tell us they love the ‘family’ atmosphere on small group tours – many travelling companions end up firm friends. You’ll also be able to make connections with locals too, whether you’re enjoying a home-cooked meal with a family, or visiting local producers to see how they work. We can source more immersive experiences, and organise unique overnight stays – think intimate lodges around Kruger National Park or desert camps nestled in Rajasthan’s dunes.

When it comes to safaris, size really is everything. Game drives are best when there’s just a small number of people – you don’t want to be jostling with crowds to catch a glimpse of a lion or standing with scores of other wildlife-watchers while an elephant and her baby drink at a watering hole. Being in a small group allows for a much richer safari experience, plus it creates a real sense of camaraderie among the group.

Usually you’ll be allowed one suitcase (approx. 58cm x 73cm x 25cm), plus a piece of hand luggage. There may be differences depending on your itinerary – some safari holidays, for example, require you to bring a soft-sided bag. If you’re unsure, please get in touch with our travel advisors.

All of our small group tours include an element of flexibility – time where you can choose to relax, explore independently or join an optional excursion if there’s one available. Have a look at the itinerary for your tour to see how much free time there is.

We allow children over the age of 12 on Titan tours, as long as they’re accompanied by an adult. Safaris, rainforest treks, rail tours of India – if you’ve got teens hungry for adventure, a small group tour could be just the ticket for your next family holiday.

Offering more value for money is something we pride ourselves on. From flights and handpicked hotels, to excursions and experiences, we include a huge amount on each of our tours. On each individual tour page, you’ll find a breakdown of exactly what’s included, from the number of meals to your transfers from home to the airport (and back).

Our small group holidays tend to be on the active side. We give all of our tours a pace rating of 1-3, and you’ll find small groups usually sit in 2 (moderately paced) or 3 (faster paced). You can view a full description of each pace level on our accessibility page. If you’re unsure whether a tour will be right for you, please give our travel advisors a call and they’ll be happy to talk you through in more detail.
