Each itinerary is for the mature and senior travller whether taking a trip as a solo traveler or couple. Our small group travel programs focus on cultural experiences that seek out history, the landscape and local culture staying in good accommodation for the smaller group. Our group size of up to 12 people makes these select small group adventure programs feel more like a private tour with a like minded fellow traveller and a local guide rather than large group discovery tours offered by a big tour operator. Each tour itinerary to a selected destination be it Costa rica in South America or New Zealand’s South island are structured as independent tours. The itinerary can be flexed, an excursion swapped out by consensus over lunch often it is that type of obliging small group who respects the fellow traveller and is typically amenable to change on the small group adventure type tours.
