Whatever you are looking for in a holiday, we're here to send you in the right direction.

Small group tours are an exciting way to see a country and can take you to areas which are much harder to get to on your own. These tours can include hiking and cycling adventures, cultural discoveries of famous ruins and historic cities, or wildlife and nature viewings. Some tours even combine it all.

It can also be an inexpensive way to travel. Escorted by a Tour Leader, the style and type of holiday may range from grass roots up to 5 star, travelling in private or local transport - there are countless options to choose from. Group ages vary between 20 and 80, with 10 or so like-minded travellers. Many solos and couples choose to travel in small groups.

Michele lives the active adventure - having explored many remote areas of the world on foot, and has been leading hiking holidays worldwide for over 15 years; she knows what makes a good experience.

We offer hundreds of group tour options such as climbing Kilimanjaro, walking the Amalfi Coast, cycling in Cuba, safaris in the Serengeti, boat trips around the Galapagos Islands, cultural tours to Machu Picchu, and visiting the Taj Mahal.

There is something out there for everyone.

Michele is always considering new destinations to make and lead a special tour, frequently involving remote trekking. As a Tour Leader, she is experienced at taking groups to high altitudes, and will be happy to make a tour and even escort you to the destination of your choice.

Here are upcoming tours and some unique itineraries which Michele has made in the last few years:

We know that many people want to trek and explore in remote regions, but do not want to rough it. The idea of camping can scare people away. There are several areas in the world where it is possible to combine remote active adventure and comfort, ending the day in a beautiful mountain lodge, with fine food and a hot shower.
