Small Group Journeys

What distinguishes a small group tour? Our small group tours each feature a festival but they are way more than that. Each tour showcases cultural highlights, unique fortresses and monasteries, walks in pristine forests that will take your breath away (in a good way!) and close encounters with charming and cheeky Bhutanese that you'll remember forever. They have scheduled departure dates and are operated on a regular basis each year. We keep our group size small - under 14 people - which maintains the integrity of the experience and enables a more intimate immersion into local cultural. And more time with your Guide.

Travelling in a small group opens doors to some very special connections and discoveries. For example, enjoying lunch in a farmhouse with locals. Because many of our group journeys have a strong focus on culture and nature, our groups are generally made up of like-minded people and many firm friendships are made.

TRAVELLING SOLO? We invite you to join any of our small group tours. We're sure you'll meet other like-minded people. Will you have to pay a single supplement? That's your choice. Some solo travelers take up our ‘willing to share’ option, meaning we can explore you sharing with another solo traveler of the same gender at the twin share price.

Every tour offers an itinerary crafted to heighten enjoyment of your holiday experience, and our prices build maximum value for money with an inclusive price covering accommodation, sightseeing, a private guide, meals and more.
