Small group tour:
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. 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?
Amazing. Luved the island hopping. The day we did a great climb on Hvar and wine tasting that evening. Also Luved the ride on korchula to a beautiful fish lunch with a swim. Then rode back.
2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?
End of June and early July is very hot but wind on the ride is cool. Plan on late dinners. Too hot to eat earlier. Riders should be adequate climbers and comfortable on a road bike.
3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
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.
PlanetThe Balkan region has a rich variety of wild life - from bears, foxes, wolfs, wild boors, deer, different lizards, snakes, birds to sea life and endemic plants. Our tour leader's responsibility is to inform our guests about the wildlife encountered on our trips. Spreading knowledge and awareness of wildlife is a first step to respect and protect.
Pedal power is, of course, one of the most environmentally friendly ways to travel, meaning that your vacation is a low impact option. We walk and cycle on marked paths wherever possible and don’t leave any rubbish, not even fruit residues as it can attract wild animals. The tour leaders further help to reduce the amount of waste the group produces by encouraging the use of personal bottles and refilling them rather than using multiple single use plastic bottles per day.
As a travel company 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.
PeopleOn this cycling vacation in Croatia we visit local wineries and organise meals and wine-tasting breaks during the day. These include visits to Konoba Grk in Lumbarda on Korcula Island and Konoba Tomic in the village of Vrboski on Hvar Island. They are all small and family run vineyards not visited by many tourists as they are not on the main tourist route. Along with the wine you have the opportunity to try homemade sage, mint or elder juice and purchase fine organic virgin olive oil or small cotton bags of lavender to help support the local community.
Our local travel partner employs people from all over the region, from bus drivers to local guides. We also use locally owned and run hotels and transport companies to facilitate this trip ensuring as much money as possible generated from our visit goes back to the local community.
As a company 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 the UK travel industry body AITO because we believe it’s important to share our knowledge and experience, as well as learn from other operators.
