Must read

Are you looking for an intimate travel experience in a unique destination? A guided small group holiday offers attentive guides, one-of-a-kind experiences and is the perfect choice to see more of the world with a close-knit group of like-minded travellers.

Keep on reading and discover why you should consider a small group tour in 2024.

Truly spectacular sights are more accessible on guided holidays

One of the most alluring aspects of small group travel is the opportunity to visit breathtaking destinations that may be a challenge to explore independently due to logistics or language barriers.

Whereas if you take a guided holiday in countries where English isn’t widely spoken, you have the comfort of knowing you won’t miss out on the top attractions and get the opportunity to savour unique and unforgettable experiences.

On a South Korea tour, you can see the highlights of Seoul like the Gyeongbokgung Palace, discover the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) and see colourful houses in Gamcheon Culture Village in Bussan.

On a tour to Costa Rica go bird watching in Monteverde Cloud Forest, try authentic Costa Rican coffee at a plantation and relax on the stunning beaches of Tamarindo. Visit Ecuador & The Galapagos Islands, uncover the UNESCO listed historic city centre of Quito with its well-preserved colonial architecture and stand on both the northern and southern hemispheres when you visit Middle of the World. Follow in the footsteps of Charles Darwin to witness spectacular landscapes, encounter the iconic giant tortoises and other remarkable wildlife.

On a small group India tour, along with seeing all the major landmarks like the Taj Mahal, Amber Fort and Lake Pichola, you can take part in activities that tourists wouldn’t normally get to do like enjoying high tea in the private quarters of the City Palace and a traditional Rajasthan Shikar dinner with a member of the royal family.

Also, by travelling in a smaller group you will use smaller coaches which means you have better access to hidden gems and off-the-beaten-path destinations, allowing you to truly immerse yourself in cultural and gastronomical delights.

Uncovering a new destination becomes significantly more enriching when guided by locals who speak the local language, have all the insights about the culture, history, and hidden gems of the region. They can suggest the top restaurants or provide recommendations on things to do tailored to your interests during your leisure time.
