Our escorted trips bring the best of independent and group travel together. Whether you're travelling with friends, family, loved ones of flying solo, it's always nice to meet people on your travels. Forget the idea of being herded around following a flag with 50 other people; or spending hours on a coach getting from one place to another. Our small group trips give you the opportunity to spend time exploring cities however you like, travel like the locals on planes, trains and automobiles, all while taking advantage of discounted group rates and having everything taken care of for you.
We include the 'must see and do' activities however we always try and do it with a twist:
In Madrid our city guide is a local chef, we'll wander through the streets learning about the history and culture and visit to some of the most famous markets the world where will will stock up on fresh produce before heading back to cook some delicious Spanish tapas while the sangria and smiles flow.
In Franshhoek we will visit Richard Branson's winery for a private tasting and lunch.
In Santorini we charter a catamaran and set sail for mouthwatering Champagne BBQ as the sun sets over the famous caldera.
In Kruger we will have one of the most magical meals of your life under the African stars.
After spending 15 years booking travel and sending people all over the world, it is very apparent that the majority of group tours are traditionally aimed at people travelling in Twin or Double Share Accommodation. There is always the option of a 'single supplement' however they are often an additional 50% of the tour cost.
Let me introduce you to our exclusive 'Solo Sharing' accommodation options... Solo Sharing is a unique concept that allow friends and family to travel together, while having your own space. We do have the usual Twin, Double & Single options, Solo Sharing gives you a mixture of either your own hotel room, or your own bedroom in a 2 Bedroom Apartment. This has allowed us to dramatically reduce the jump between sharing a room for the entirety of a tour, or having to pay a single supplement. We exclusively work with properties that offer apartment style accommodation or provide a discount for single occupancy rooms. Some of our trips have Solo Sharing options priced in, others are tailor-made to your requirements.
Our trips are truly bespoke, if you want to upgrade your room type or even your hotel, we'll work with you to great the perfect holiday. We book your trip and host the group so you know that you'll be looked after from start to finish... and then on to the next one!
We know that heading off into a city with no plans will often give you some of your best travel memories; we will arm you with recommendations, a local SIM so you always know where you are, and free time to explore. There will always be optional day trips that you can add on should you wish, or you might prefer to spend the day people watching in a piazza or reading a book looking out over the Aegean. The evenings are full with just as many option; you may choose to venture out on your own, however there will always be a booking at a local restaurant should you want to join us for dinner, a drink and a laugh.
Check out our current 2020 trips and jump onboard!
Unfortunately, our 2020 Group Trips to Scandinavia and Greece & Spain have had to be postponed due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. We will make a decision about South Africa with those who are currently booked on the trip later in the year in order to maximise our opportunity to travel.
We have also made the decision to cancel the scheduled Travel Club Long Weekenders to Bali, Singapore, Nusa Lembongan & The Gili Islands through to the end of September, as well as our Yoga Retreat in Lombok in May.
Not all is lost though! We are just going to evolve and bring things closer to home :-)
- Yoga Retreat will be moved to November and will be held at the amazing Mangrove Hotel in Broome, WA
- Long Weekender will be rescheduled to Domestic and possibly Trans Tasman destinations later in the year.
Details will be posted in the Meet Up Group as soon as we are able to confirm dates and bookings.
We will leave the itineraries below so that you can keep dreaming!!
The tour dates are set however we can help you with any pre or post tour extensions.

Whatever you want, we can do it!
