Small Group Tours

Small group tours allow you to travel with likeminded travellers, and with a maximum group size of 24, you'll have the opportunity for a more in depth and intimate touring experience. Visit places that larger coach groups can't, stay in boutique accommodation, immerse yourself in the culture, and enjoy authentic local interaction. Get off the beaten track and truly under the skin of a destination.

What our clients are saying about their small group touring experiences


“Worry free battlefield tour ”
Debra - NSW, Australia Nov 2019
The highlight of the trip for our group was Armistice Day, our tour guide Steve was amazing he organised for us to lay a wreath at the Hooge Crater cemetery, 11am service. That night we attended Menin Gate to watch the Last Post, for me this was one of the most touching experiences I have witnessed, again Steve made sure we were positioned perfectly to view the ceremony. Steve’s patience and thoughtfulness made this trip a pleasure, we had great accommodation and exceptional food for the whole journey. ...read more

“An unforgettable adventure”
Karen & Richard - NSW, Australia Nov 2019
Group travel was a new thing for us and South America was a destination that we approached with trepidation but the lure of remote Patagonia provided the inspiration to overcome our fears. We met our fellow travellers in the city of Buenos Aires, the vibrant home of the tango with a history that enveloped us with both intrigue and admiration. It’s a city with a European heart and a modern skin whose soul comes from its inhabitants who love life, eat late and gather in the cafés to chat away the night. ...read more

“New Zealand - Grand Pacific Ultimate ”
Elizabeth - VIC, Australia Oct 2019

Hannah communicated with me throughout the entire booking process and ensured that I had everything in order to ensure smooth travelling. Everything was so well organised and I cannot recommend Hannah and Global Journeys enough. The tour started in Christchurch and I was met by a host from Grand Pacific at the ...read more

“Intrepid's backpacking adventure through Jordan, Israel and the Palestine territories ”
Harrison - New Zealand Oct 2019
The trip overall was fantastic, experiencing the middle eastern culture up close in Wadi Rum, to exploring the ruins of Petra, and finally experiencing the amazing city of Jerusalem, a city that offers history, culture and religion, as well as having a modern feel.
