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

“Back-Roads Belle France”
Deirdre - South Australia, Australia Apr 2019
A really great trip with an excellent guide and a fantastic driver. Accommodation was great. The fellow travellers were easy, friendly company and all the places we visited lived up to expectations. Our guide took us to extra places of interest that added to the enjoyment of the trip. I just loved the part of France that we visited.

“Turkey Explored ”
Lee - SA, Australia Mar 2019
This was my very first Intrepid tour therefore I did not know what to expect. Also, as this is a "Basix" style, I did not expect too much but our tour leader's (Fatih Develi) enthusiasm and knowledge made things possible. I enjoyed this tour thoroughly as we had a very good mix of fellow travellers and got on very well. At the end of the trip, we even set up a WhatsApp group to share photos! I would definitely go with Intrepid again and book through Jemma as she is professional!

“Fabulous Egypt tour”
Chris - NSW, Australia Mar 2019
I booked my Bunnik tour (Egypt in Depth) through Global Journeys. The process was clear, simple and reassuringly efficient. I had always wanted to visit Egypt and the trip was everything that I could hope for. I visited in March - April and the weather was warm and sunny each day but cool in the early mornings and evenings. The tour guide made the trip; he was so knowledgeable and organised. The itinerary covered all the highlights of Egypt, accommodation was wonderful, including the Nile River more

“Fantastic Borneo Exploration”
Graeme & Betty-Anne - QLD, Australia Mar 2019
This was a fantastic small group tour. Except for one hotel, we had good accommodation, excellent meals, great company and a fantastic tour guide who taught us about her country and their lives. Seeing some of these endangered species in the wild was a unique and rewarding experience. This trip is highly recommended.
