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


“Lovely tour in the Southwest outback”
Dinie - Netherlands Mar 2020
With an enthusiastic tour leader (& excellent cook and driver) Sean, 19 people from different countries had a wonderful trip from Perth to Esperance and back. It was the first time I hiked in a ‘swag’, and I wish I had discovered this type of sleeping equipment (50 or so;)) years ago... I’ll be back!

“A comfort of Egypt and Jordan”
Melita & Donald - QLD, Australia Feb 2020
A great group of 12 travellers from Switzerland, Canada, USA, England and Australia varying in ages from late 20's to late 60's. We travelled in early March starting in Egypt for 11 days then Jordan and found the temperatures cool to moderate and weather fine except for a once in 100 year storm which passed through.

“Kenya and Tanzania - Bunnik Tours”
Ron & Ann Abernethy - WA, Australia Feb 2020
We had a great group of 8 including us, we would have preferred a slightly larger group where you get to know people and enjoy their company. A couple of days driving without seeing much in grassland. However the tour was well organised by Bunnik, all the Drivers / Guides were excellent, always on time, friendly, always with a smile, what else can you hope for.

“Wonderful South Island Tour”
Kuldip - NSW, Australia Feb 2020
Kirra Tours' 10 day Southern Encounter tour of South Island New Zealand was a wonderful, worry free small group coach tour. The whole package was great. We had a very knowledgable, courteous coach driver/tour guide & the pace of the tour was just right. The tours that were included & the optional tours were the best available in each area. Accommodation was at the best available hotels (4 to 4.5 stars) in each town/city, within a short walking distance of the town centre. The daily breakfast buffets ...read more
