Small group tours:
Small group travel is not large group travel scaled down. It is modeled on independent travel – but with the advantage of a group leader to take care of the itinerary, accommodation and tickets, and dealing with the language. It’s easy to tick off the big sights independently – but finding those one-off experiences, local festivals, traveling markets and secret viewpoints is almost impossible for someone without the insider knowledge gained from years in the field. Those with a two-week vacation, a small group tour will save valuable planning time.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?
Perfect mix of cycling, sightseeing and history lesson.
2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?
However much you love the heat, and however fit you are, the fearsome midday sun can be hard to handle for some, so be prepared to swallow your pride and
jump on the bus for a while.
3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
Difficult to assess how far the tourist dollar trickled down. I don't think we taxed the environment unduly.
4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
Plastic bottles are a big issue in many countries where recycling isn’t yet widely available; they often end up in landfill sites or get burnt, both processes are harmful to the environment and we would like to reduce our impact here. The vehicle on this tour will be equipped with a large drinking water container, enabling you to refill as needed. Not only a necessity in the tropical climate of Northern Queensland, it also reduces the amount of single-use plastic bottles that are still the standard.
Being a wildlife based tour, we are very conscious of our effects on the environment and how we can reduce negative impact and aid conservation. Many of the organizations we partner with in providing you with this unique travel experience, both accommodations and activity operators, are (Advanced) Eco Certified or have ingrained sustainable and responsible travel practices. They are part of Australia's leading and most innovative ecotourism products, committed to achieving best practice, using resources wisely, contributing to education and conservation and helping the local community.
We spend a good portion of the trip wildlife watching: Humpback whales, Whale sharks, Manta rays, dolphins and turtles - the list is endless. This abundance of marine life in Ningaloo Marine Park prompts us to follow a strict ‘leave no trace’ policy, to inform our guests as much as possible on environmental responsibility on the trip and to tie in aspects of conservation wherever possible.
This is a small group tour and so numbers do not exceed 16, meaning that local environments and the communities and variety of species (endangered and otherwise) that we encounter are not seriously impacted by our stay.
It all starts at home so we have first worked at reducing our carbon footprint in our UK offices. Through energy conservation measures and recycling policies, we are proud to be actively reducing the waste produced and our impact on the environment. We support various projects all over the world to try and give something back to the places we visit.
PeopleCommunity, Accommodation and Meals:
This trip uses mostly independent, locally owned hotels and lodges. All the accommodation we use is of benefit to local people by providing employment opportunities in the region. We also frequently use local specialist guides, local shops and family run restaurants and in doing so contribute economically to the communities we visit. The not included lunches and dinners are a good chance to support small businesses along the route.
