Vacation type
Small group vacations
Small group travel is not large group travel scaled down. It is modelled 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. If you’re heading off on a gap year your, perhaps – but for those with a two-week vacation, a small group tour will save valuable planning time.

The leaders are not guides – they’re not there to shepherd you around. Instead, they’ll let you know which local restaurant serves great value food – without running the risk of travelers’ tummy. They’ll allow you to avoid hour-long queues at train stations and attractions.

We like to think of small group travel as the Goldilocks option. It is independent travel without the fuss, worry and bunk beds – and organised travel without the coaches. And it’s cheaper than a tailor made tour. It’s sits somewhere in the middle – and we think it’s just about right.
What are the main benefits?
Big experiences
Have big, life-enriching experiences that would be impossible to organise without lots of time and insider knowledge.

Simplicity
Make the most of your vacation time by letting someone else do the hard work and boring logistics!

Peace of mind
Small group tours take care of the security aspects – and provide a safety net should anything unexpected happen.
Who is it ideal for?
Travelers who are short of time
If you don’t have three months to spend exploring, small groups trips let you cover more ground in less time. Your days are not spent queuing for tickets or finding hotels – so you can squeeze more into your vacation.

Solo travelers who’d like company
Likeminded travel companions plus peace of mind for those traveling alone. Single supplements are usually available – providing privacy if you want it.

Less confident travelers
Stray from the tourist trail without worrying about getting lost, and meet local people without dealing with the language barrier.
Mythbuster
“I won’t get any privacy!”
Couples and friends have private rooms, and you can choose to eat alone or not. Single supplements give solo travelers their own room.

“There won’t be any free time”
Free mornings or afternoons let you explore on your own, or just relax.

“The accommodation will be basic”
Trips are as high or low end as you like. Though off the beaten track destinations won’t have luxury hotels, this is all part of the adventure.

“I won’t like the other travelers!”
Tour operators try to create groups with a similar demographic – age, families, activity levels... Chances are, you’ll even make new friends.

“Will we be following an umbrella?”
No.
Meet a local guide
No matter how experienced your group leader, they can never make up for the knowledge gained from a lifetime in the destination. That’s why many of our trips work with local guides around the world – who invite you into their homeland with pleasure.

Responsible tourism

Amalfi coast small group hiking vacation

Carbon reduction

Your vacation will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this vacation and how to reduce them.

Environment

Our leaders are trained in responsible tourism matters and work to our detailed Responsible Tourism Policy. On the Amalfi Coast, an increasingly popular area for hikers, they brief groups carefully to ensure that we have a minimal impact on the countryside as well as providing tips on how to avoid generating waste, such as using refillable water bottles. A lot of us think we ‘know’ Europe but it can be surprising what a wealth of cultural differences there are and our leaders are there to explain the culture and customs.

To help leave a low a carbon footprint, this trip has been designed to use some public transport, including local buses, to and from the start and end of walks and the local ferry to Capri Island.

This vacation stays at an agriturismo - a small family farm that also takes in guests and which is a very sustainable form of tourism. Started in the 1950s as an initiative to reverse the abandonment of small non-profitable farms and depopulation of the countryside, Italy's agriturismo movement encourages farmers to redevelop their properties for paying guests by converting parts of the farm, such as old barns and outhouses, into guest accommodation to supplement their agricultural income. Since developing a close relationship with the Acampora family and sending our customers to their farm, they have been able to grow it from a simple small farmhouse into comfortable vacation accommodation with a beautiful restaurant, securing economic stability for future generations of their family.

The farm is organic and the family engage in traditional practices, working in harmony with nature to produce organic vegetables such as the grapes for their homemade wine and olives for their oil. By supporting the farm, this vacation helps to support organic farming practices and preserve rural traditions. Staying here is a wonderful opportunity to engage with this local family and see how three generations of one family, from 88 year old 'Mama' Maria down to 11 year old Giuseppe, work as a team.

Located on the cliffs above the main tourist centers of the Amalfi Coast, many of our walks take us through rural communities, helping to spread some of the economic benefits from tourism outside of Amalfi's traditional seaside centers.

In addition to the above, we are continually looking for ways to improve and are proud to be ‘Responsible in everything we do’. Education is key and so all staff, Tour leaders and partnering suppliers are trained in responsible and sustainable tourism. At our Head Office, we continually strive towards a sustainable and planet-friendly working environment, including having solar panels installed and a company commitment to reducing our plastic usage. As well as this, we have valuable and longstanding partnerships with UK charities Toilet Twinning and Send a Cow, plus many smaller initiatives and projects around the world. We’re members of UK travel industry bodies Tourism Concern and AITO because we believe it’s important to share our knowledge and experience, as well as learn from other operators.

As a company we support Cool Earth. Protecting rainforest is one of the most effective actions to tackle climate breakdown. Cool Earth work with indigenous communities empowering them to conserve their forest; keeping CO2 locked in.
