Vacation type

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.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
The very ethos of our style of travel is responsible; small groups on fully escorted tours, experiencing the very best of a region, a culture and a landscape, with a friendly local hand guiding the way. Our itineraries are designed to give our travelers real life experiences without compromising the part of the world through which we are journeying, this is our commitment as a global tour operator.

As a company, our responsibilities don’t 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 own in house foundation has been in operation for over 11 years; a not-for-profit fund that has distributed over AU$3 million to more than 70 non-government organisations since 2002. Donations come from our travelers and are then matched by us dollar for dollar.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

On this trip you are joined by a leader throughout and local guides along the way who are always eager to share information about their country and culture, and help you break down barriers in your interactions with local people.

The ruins of Angkor are protected under UNESCO World Heritage listing and as such, part of the money received from entrance tickets contributes to the amazing site’s conservation. Your local guide will also give you plenty of guidance on what is appropriate when visiting the ruins and you will have the chance to interact with many of the local kids.

Travelers will have the option of visiting the land mine museum in Siem Reap and any donations are gratefully accepted. Also in Siem Reap, there is a local children’s hospital where the local kids put on a show on some nights. All money and blood donations are for the hospital and provide free services for children from the area.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


The most exciting part was that every day was different. From learning about the impact the Khmer Rouge had on everyone, exploring the temples around Angkor , traveling by boat through floating villages to staying with a family in a farming community.....

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Be prepared for a few days where you will be traveling all day. At the genocide museum make some time to talk to one of the survivors and buy one of their books to discover more about what life was like under the Khmer Rouge.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Our guide took great care to use small family businesses, local restaurants and to encourage us to travel responsibly. Examples include not buying from children and instead taking to them and encouraging them to study hard at school, reducing the use of plastics by having refillable water available and actively saying no to plastic when shopping.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


It was great to have enough time to see everywhere properly, by staying two or three nights in most places, and not just rushing through like so many tours do. We had plenty of time to explore Angkor Wat and the other temples, with a ticket that let us go back later individually if we wanted.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


The island trip and beach stay at the end was lovely, but Sihanoukville town itself is a rubbish dump meets building site, so don't expeect anything of that. The traveling times between different places also generally took longer than scheduled.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes, and there are many restaurants, craft centers and massage rooms you can seek out that support disabled and blind people or give opportunities to youngsters.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


I enjoyed it - I wanted to experience Cambodia itself and not just as a tag-on to Vietnam or Thailand, and this is one of very few tours that offers that,
