Vacation information

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.
Train Travel:
If you prefer to travel by train we can book a this for you from and to London and the nearest train station to the start point of the vacation. Contact us for full details and prices.

Responsible Travel

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.

Planet

Accommodation & meals:
We spend the week in the family-run Hotel Le Due Torri in Agerola, a relatively unknown area of Amalfi, so our guests are providing income to an area that does not usually benefit from tourism. The hotel recently installed solar panels which provide hot water for all rooms all year round. All the hotel food is homemade, using locally produced and sourced goods where possible, and guests often have the opportunity to learn from their hosts how to prepare a traditional Neapolitan pizza one evening. Where meals are not provided, there is the chance to support local businesses and to try some authentic, regional specialties. These include: antipasti, homemade pasta, delicious Neapolitan pizza and fresh seafood.


Group size:
This is a small group tour, meaning that we have a low impact on the environments and communities we visit and are able to ensure that we do not disrupt or lead to the displacement of local people. The small number also allows us to stay in unique, family-run hotels that cannot benefit from coach tours and other mass tourism due to their limited sizes.

UK office:
It all starts at home where we work towards reducing our carbon footprint in our offices through energy conservation measures, recycling policies and the promotion of cycling and walking as a means for our staff to commute. Our head office has become a plastic-free zone with the use of plastic bottles being banned in our head office and we distributed reusable water bottles and tote bags to every staff member. We also support a large number of community and environmental projects in different parts of the world and try to give something back to the places we visit.

People

Local craft and culture:
This trip is packed with exciting activities for the whole family which really highlight the best natural and cultural treasures of the Amalfi Coast. We visit many places of interest including the city of Herculaneum and Pompeii as well as a walk through the ĎPath of the Godsí to witness amazing views of the Amalfi coastline. All money spent at sites goes directly to maintaining these iconic historical sites and paying the wages of those who work there. Of course, a huge part of Italian culture is cuisine and this is reflected in locally crafted produce, some of which is unique to this region. Locally smoked mozzarella is a highlight and you will often find it with salads or on pizzas. We will visit a local mozzarella factory where all money spent here goes directly to supporting and maintaining this very traditional family business. We also visit a local artisan's 'bottega' where we paint a pottery souvenir and have the opportunity to purchase other handicrafts, fostering interaction with the locals.
