Vacation information

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.

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

This trip offers you the chance to trek the fabulous Inca Trail in a small group. In recent years there have been increasing regulations on the Trail aimed at preserving this fragile, world renowned Heritage Site, and we are pleased to state that we comfortably fit into these regulations and are actively involved in several initiatives which support the communities with which we work in Peru.

On the trek we use look at our impacts at every level - from using eco-friendly toilets and biodegradable soap to establishing a relationship with the community of our porters. Aside from ensuring a fair deal for our local team of porters, we work closely with Inca Porter Project in Cusco who are involved in educational projects for people of this remote region.

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.

People

We work with the villages of Misminay and Anccoto where the porters are based to support the families, including vaccination campaigns and have helped to fund a nursery school and community hall (we can sometimes arrange a visit during our spare time in Cusco).

We also purchase the vegetables that they farm, offering them an additional source of revenue and allowing you the chance to taste locally produced food. Local operators run our optional excursions, ensuring that the money goes directly to the supplier and the community.

The tour is led by a local tour leader who is also the trek guide on the trail. The trek guide is supported by the assistant trek guide and our great team of porters and we abide by the strict Inca Trail guidelines that regulate their working conditions, the care of the Trail and the surrounding communities. We stay in locally owned hotels in Cusco, ensuring that more of your money goes into the local economy.
