Small group adventure

What is a small group adventure?
It's a great way to travel! Whether you are traveling on your own, with a partner or with friends, a small group trip is a fantastic way to see the world. You'll travel on a fixed itinerary that has been designed to help you discover the best of region. From the known highlights, the hidden gems that you won't find in the guidebooks.

Itineraries run on set departure dates, accompanied every step of the way by an English speaking local group leader. You chose the itinerary and the date that suits you best and you book on.

Why travel on a small group adventure?
Small groups allow us to explore where larger tour groups can't. Our maximum group size of 16 travelers allows us to use local transport to get from A to B, to visit rural villages, spend time with the locals and even stay at a local home overnight, and it allows us to give our travelers genuine, real life experiences of the countries we are visiting; what you'll be doing and how you'll travel depends entirely on your chosen itinerary.

Is an adventure right for me?
The word adventure means something different to everyone, and our range of trips reflects that. Whether you want to explore local markets, visit out of the way temples and meet local people or go on an early morning safari drive searching for the 'big five', we'll have a trip for you. If you are looking for a physical challenge such trekking the Kokoda Track or summiting Kilimanjaro, we can help with that too.

So what can I expect on this trip?
This is a classic style of small group adventure. You'll find your trip combines a good mix of included activities and free time, with some meals included as per your itinerary. We don't want you to feel chaperoned, it's your vacation not ours. Your group leader will be on hand to assist with organising anything you might wish to do in your free time, but how you spend it is up to you. Anything listed as included in your itinerary will be included in trip price; whereas anything listed as optional will be at an additional cost should you wish to take part.

These trips are great value, including things that you would struggle to organise independently, such as a night at a homestay in a remote village, or local guides around a remote place of interest. Transport will be a combination of private vehicle and public transport, whichever is the most appropriate for the route we are traveling; this might include train, plane, camel, tuk tuk, bicycle, boat…

On a majority of these trips you'll stay in 2-3 star accommodation, locally owned and reflective of the region you are traveling through. All solo travelers will be automatically roomed on a twin share basis with another group member of the same sex, unless you opt to pay for your own room at time of booking. There are no compulsory single supplements for solo travelers willing to share. Single rooms aren't available on camping trips, and you will be expected to help out with camp tasks such as setting up and breaking down your camp.

Can I book my flights with you?
Yes! We are a fully ATOL bonded tour operator meaning that we can book flights from the UK as part of your vacation package. Just ask us for a quote including flights when you make your enquiry.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: India vacation, small group

Providing our travelers with real life experiences without compromising the lives of local people is the ethos that we live by. Our style of travel is responsible, ensuring we benefit local people, the environment and wildlife and leave as little impact as possible. These values are more than just words on a page; they are ingrained in our culture and the daily operations of every office and every trip. In addition, we expect our staff and travelers to demonstrate the principles of responsible travel - respecting people, cultures and local environments, in the distribution of wealth, in good will and cross-cultural sharing and in contributing to sustainable development.
We endeavour to support the local economy and put imperative finance back into a community. We do this by staying in small, locally run accommodation; our stay in the medieval town of Chanderi is an example of this as we stay at a local guesthouse. We always employ local leaders as this enables locals to have a firm, permanent job and we will feel they of course know their country better than anyone else. Whilst we are in Chanderi, our local leader will invite travelers back to his family’s home to share a meal with them, often the highlight of the trip as travelers gain a real insight into India’s tradition and culture and integrate with the locals. Our small group sizes, maximum 12 on this tour, enable us to travel in this style, as we also visit a Hindu family for a home-cooked lunch, and give our travelers those unique experiences and a sense of belonging.
Travelers are able to experience genuine insights into the local culture in India as we ensure we include as much local transport into our itineraries. No trip to India would be complete without experiencing the overnight sleeper trains, where travelers and locals travel alike as it is an exciting cultural eye opener aboard the fastest and convenient way to travel. Not only are travelers fascinated by this style of travel, but locals often love to meet with travelers and get to know their culture a little better.
Wildlife and the environment are parts of our world that are precious and must be respected at all times. On this tour, we include a visit to the Bandhavgarh National Park that is home to an abundance of magnificent wildlife and the elusive tiger, and chances of spotting one of these magical creatures is high. The entrance fees to the National Park are included in the price of the tour which contributes to the upkeep and conservation of the Park, enabling tigers to live in a protected environment and travelers to enjoy it for years to come.
The dress code in Asia is conservative, in particular when visiting temples, mosques and palaces. On this tour we visit Delhi’s oldest mosque, Jain temples and the magical Taj Mahal and care must be taken to respect Indian culture. We suggest travelers invest in some lightweight, loose clothing that covers shoulders and knees when visiting India. Information can be accessed on our website prior to travel to help ensure travelers are able to follow appropriate dress codes and behaviours at these locations and your group leader will be on hand to advise throughout.
Our responsibilities don’t just stop when our tours end. We run and support a variety of projects globally, from healthcare, education, human rights, child welfare, sustainable development and environmental and wildlife protection. Our in house foundation, The Intrepid Foundation supports three projects in India, including the Asha Ka Jharna, which provides services to disabled children and adults, Deepalaya that focuses on building a better future for India’s street children and GOONJ, which channels vital resources such as clothes and household goods, into rural India.
