Best Small Group Tours & Trips
Travelling with a small group of friends (or friends-to-be!) is always a rewarding and exciting experience. Imagine travelling on a train through the jungles of Sri Lanka? How about taking in the art, culture, and food of Europe with a small group, receiving personalised attention from your guide? Whatever adventure you’re looking for, you can find it while travelling on a small group tour.
Popular destinations for small group travel
When you go on a small group tour, one of the highlights is the individual, personalised attention you can receive from your guide. If you want to explore a certain destination in-depth, a small group tour means you get to learn about exactly what you want to! Whether you’re walking along the Great Wall of China, exploring Japan’s famous fashion and food scene, wandering through a bustling market in Morocco, or floating along the Mekong Delta in Vietnam, your experience can be whatever you want in a small group tour.
Exploring all the wondrous sights, sounds, and tastes China has to offer is even better in a small group! Hike along the Great Wall, visit ancient temples and learn about the country’s long history, or stroll through bustling markets and enjoy Chinese food as you’ve never had it before.
Famous for its fashion, nightlife, food, and so much more, Japan truly offers something for everyone. Sing your heart out at karaoke, explore Tokyo’s varied and exciting districts, or even ski on world-class Olympic slopes on the North Island.
Whether you want to find your bliss on top of a mountain in the middle of the Sahara Desert or while sipping mint tea after a long day of market shopping, Morocco has you covered. Enjoy the colours, tastes, and cultures of this gorgeous North African country, and you’ll want to return again and again!
Vietnam is a country with a long history and an exciting future. Float along the Mekong Delta and pass markets, rice terraces, and quiet villages, or hit the town and sip cocktails in a rooftop bar. It’s a country of contrasts, and you’ll get to enjoy all of them on a small group tour.
Explore Europe on a small group tour
You could spend a lifetime exploring Europe and still not have seen all of its secret passageways, intricate art, and world-famous food, which is why a small group tour of the Old Continent is so perfect! Nature lovers and party animals alike will relish in Ireland’s coastal hiking trails, ancient architecture, and bustling nightlife scene. If whiskey’s your thing, your group will love touring the centuries-old distilleries tucked away throughout Scotland - not to mention the stunning natural beauty and mysteries like Loch Ness. Or, if you are a foodie, Italy must be calling your name! Enjoy fresh pasta the way only the Italians can make it, or hit one of the many gorgeous beaches on which the country prides itself.
Small group adventure tours
Imagine climbing Kilimanjaro with a small, supportive group to celebrate with once you reach the summit. A group of close friends there to help you up when you’re down and cheer for you when you overcome difficult days. That’s exactly what you’ll get when you climb Kilimanjaro on a small group tour.
Discover one of the most magical things in the Arctic; the northern lights! This colourful display in the sky occurs most-prominently in the winter months, when the Arctic experiences very little sunlight. The best part of seeing the northern lights on a small group tour is you’ll always have people to keep you company while you wait to see if tonight is your lucky night.
Safaris are always an incredible experience; the only thing that makes them better is when there are like-minded people around you to enjoy the experience with! Climb aboard your safari vehicle and get ready to spot the big five.
Overlanding across the Silk Road, history’s ancient trade highway, is the perfect way to learn more about our world while making life-long friends at the same time. Small group tours are the best way to explore the Silk Road since there’s so much to see and do along the way.
Perks of travelling with a small group
Travel at more comfortable pace
When you travel on a small group tour, you’re never left rushing to catch up with a large group hurrying through somewhere you’d rather spend more time, or itching to move forward while others linger. Travelling with like-minded people in a small group means you’ll always have someone ready to see and do all the same things as you.
Get to know your travel companions
Gone are the days of the anonymous, impersonal large group tour. Travelling on a small group tour allows you to get to know every member of your group - their likes, dislikes, and personalities. This also goes both ways - your guide and travel companions will get to know everything about you, which means your travel experience is even more customised.
Ask all the questions you want
Never worry about monopolizing the conversation or speaking over someone again! On a small group tour, not only is asking questions highly encouraged, your guide will have more time to dedicate to answering them. No matter how big or small, you can ask as many questions as you’d like on a small group tour.
