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


“Japan: Ramen & Railways”
Jason - Australia Jan 2020
The six day trip was a good introduction to three cities Tokyo, Takayama and Kyoto. For our trip we had Shoichi Marumaya as our tour guide. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, as he was native Japanese. He frequently talked about local cuisines, daily lives of locals and in depth backgrounds to traditions. The highlight of the trip was Takayama, in which the group stayed in a traditional inn and experienced the Japanese onsen. Compared to the frantic pace of the busy cities, it was a very ...read more

“Could not have asked for more!”
Jacinta - Australia Dec 2019
I had left the booking of my trip over the new year till quite late, however the communication from Global Journeys and Intrepid meant that it was all booked over the Christmas period and the trip took place. I had trouble choosing between 'Best of Morocco' and 'Morocco Uncovered' as they both offered an area that I wanted to go to. I went with 'Best of Morocco' and loved it. Many of the areas we went, we were the only tourists. We were fortunate to have not only a small group of people yet a great ...read more

“Peregrine Highlights of Morocco Tour”
Russel - VIC, Australia Dec 2019
We booked with Global Journeys as they were offering a better price than Peregrine and Peregrine refused to price match. Service received from Tracey at Global Journeys was simply outstanding and I will definitely use her again for future trips. The trip highlight was definitely the desert experience... all aspects of it. The glamping, the food, the camel rides, the sunrise and sunset. Definitely would have liked an extra night there. Also enjoyed unwinding at the seaside town of Essaouira after ...read more

“Extremely insightful”
Well Travelled Duo - NT, Australia Dec 2019
Overall this was a comprehensive, well paced, cultural and scenic tour with a wide variety of experiences especially as Mexico and Cuba are both rich in both geography and history. Tour highlights included Oaxaca, Mexico (indigenous prominent region) and Vinales, Cuba (tobacco region). Mexico: Tour group size: Five (over Xmas/ New year period). Accommodation and services: Generally pretty good however the Merida accommodation was a bit depressing (drab rooms, smelly, sweaty pillows). Hotel Geneva ...read more
