Vacation type
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.

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
All hotels and transport are locally owned. We support the Mayan community at the Cockscomb sanctuary: a small community of Mayan ladies survive on the production of their traditional crafts. We also donate to and visit the Baboon Sanctuary an area designated for the protection of the howler monkeys. Where we use local providers for excursions such as lamanai and the snorkelling trips our local crew are trained in and brief on responsible tourism and the protection of the flora and fauna (coral reefs) in the area.

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. CoolEarth work with indigenous communities empowering them to conserve their forest; keeping CO2 locked in.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

Belize is still largely untouristy on the mainland, and many of the communities survive off the tourism economy and are engaged with protecting their local environment, whether it be jungle, wetland or reef. At the Crooked Tree Wildlife Reserve you will visit the Belize Audobon Society's ranger station, which does a lot of work into educating the young people in the area in wildlife protection.

Great. Chris was an excellent group leader - his local knowledge gave us a real insight into Belize - it's people, history and wildlife. I went hoping for Maya sites, jungle wildlife and snorkelling. All were superb. Read full review
