The Small Group Experience: Our Only Focus We design our escorted tours specifically for small groups, which allows us to move about more flexibly and efficiently; enjoy more spontaneous encounters; and experience a degree of freedom and independence simply not available to travellers on conventional group tours of 17 or more. Our goal is to show you the major sights and take you where you’d like to go on your own but don’t have the access or opportunity to plan yourself: Giving the opportunity for you the traveller to be free to savour the experience.
