Our shoestring group tours provide the opportunity to explore exciting destinations at an accessible price. Accommodation levels are often a step lower than our 'small-group' tours, though we can offer upgrades on many tours as well. Maximum group sizes are normally higher too, and there may be a few less inclusions in the itinerary. More public transport options may also be used and on some tours we may share the trip with other operators.
In countries where independent travel is popular, such as India, Nepal or Thailand, we may offer point to point itineraries rather than circuits. These can finish in locations that work well as a base for further exploration, and our local representatives are on hand to help with any onward arrangements if required. Alternatively we can arrange a return back to the starting point to make the tour a standalone trip.

This was a good package for the budget and time. Many of the cultural stops were tied into local artisans, this can good and bad, dependng on how you react to a potential sales pitch after. The desert camp was outstanding. We traveled in a group of 6 which we good, but they said it could be as high as 25 - that would be a downer.
I enjoyed the trip. Only issue is that the tour guide changed a part of the trip because he didn't want us to do something. Not the fault of encounters. But otherwise the trip was great. I would like to say that travelling from Fez to Marrakech should be on a plane or train. Driving was too long and wasted a day.
A fabulous trip. Wonderful experience being part of a small group touring a truly amazing country. Sami, our guide, was fantastic - superb knowledge, delivered in a fun and relaxed style. A really outstanding, memorable trip.
Our guide Salah was excellent throughout the tour, tour bus was very good as well. Only minor problem was with our Amman hotel, which was a bit out of the way, but that's the downside of chosing a 'shoestring' holiday.
I wish we could have done this years ago! The small group concept works so much better than a big coach tour, providing both flexibility, good use of time and more personal attention from a first rate guide.
Our video features aim to bring our adventure tours to life in a way that no photo can, giving you a great taste of the destination.
