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.

Recent Reviews What our clients are saying about their small group touring experiences

Excellent   , Spain, Jan 2023
Nice trip with a very professional guide. Erawan falls is a beautiful 7 level waterfall, the most beautiful being the therd. The River Kwai Resort and Spa is really comfortable, with very good breakfast.
Wonderful Tour of NZ   , United Kingdom, Jan 2023
Have just returned from the most fantastic trip with Grand Pacific and I can honestly say that it more than exceeded my expectations. I had been very uncertain about coach travel, but as a single traveller, there are not too many options and the small group tour coach operated by GPT was so comfortable with only 20 seats on a full size vehicle. My travel ...read more companions turned out to be a delight and we had some great experiences together.

The tour itself was extremely well coordinated and organised and our coach captain kept us all in order and took very good care of all our wants and needs. He was patient and knowledgeable and kept us amused and entertained during the sometimes necessarily long journeys, and we felt very safe and secure in his care.

There was a good choice of excursions at the various tour stops and the standard of hotels used was generally extremely high, with good locations with the overnight stay on the boat through Doubtful Sound being one of the highlights of the whole trip for me, along with the helicopter flight from Fox Glacier. The only comment I would make is that the trip could have been improved if we had stayed 3 nights and not 2 at most of the towns. With the excursions taking up the free time it would have been great to have more free time to explore each place, as fort the majority of tourists this will be the only time they get to visit NZ given the distances most had travelled to get there.
Best of Egypt   , NSW, Australia, Jan 2023
Smooth easy booking process. Great tour- excellent tour guide, great group, average accommodation, great weather, really good food and spectacular sights. Would go to Egypt again, would recommend and would travel with Global Journeys and G Adventures again!
Fantastic tour of Thailand and Malaysia   , WA, Australia, Jan 2023
Great group of travellers, good accommodation, however a few of the places didn't have very good breakfasts. Tour guide was great, looked after us and made sure the trip ran smoothly and knew a lot about the history of places as well as good places to eat. Local tour guide in Penang was good.
