Some travellers would rather immerse themselves in unique travel experiences in the company of friends and family – and that’s why we offer private group departures.
Our Private Groups team love to design itineraries around our travellers’ specifications. All you need to do is figure out where you want to go and who you want to travel with, then you’ll be on your way to enjoying the holiday-of-a-lifetime.
How to arrange a private group tour
Simply follow these three steps and you'll be on the way to your very own private journey.
Select one of our existing itineraries and you and your travel companions can book your own departure at a time that suits you, or talk to our team about creating a tailor-made itinerary. We can add activities, choose accommodation to suit your taste, or even tailor the itinerary to a particular interest, like photography or food.
Simply fill out an enquiry form and our team will get back to you to discuss your needs and provide a quote. Alternatively, you can speak to a Private Groups consultant directly over the phone.
If you’re booking an existing itinerary with your friends or family, we will ensure the dates you wish to travel are available and then confirm your tour.
If you’re creating your own tailor-made holiday, we’ll work with you to design your tour, including flights, hand-picking accommodation, working out transport and finding unique experiences to immerse you in the destination you’re visiting. We can guide you as much or as little as you want and we will keep tweaking it until you’re happy.
Then all that will be left to do is enjoy your holiday!

Frequently asked questions
On a standard tour, you’ll have a set departure date and join other travellers who have booked the tour. A private group tour allows you to tailor a trip to suit you, whether that may be a tailor-made itinerary or travelling exclusively with friends and family.
We require a minimum of four people to book a private group tour, but the more people you bring, the smaller the cost per person
That depends on the itinerary you choose and how many people you’re travelling with. If you pick an existing itinerary and have more than six people, the price may become cheaper than our standard tours.
Our minimum age for travel is five years old in most destinations, but in some circumstances, this can be flexible. There is no maximum age provided you are in good enough health to travel.
Your quote will include all aspects of the tour including accommodation, transport within the tour and any included meals or activities you choose. It will not include international flights, visas or medical travel insurance. However, our consultants can address these items with you if you would like assistance.
We can include a free of charge space within any quote, which will then be averaged out between the paying travellers. Please advise us if you require free of charge spaces when you request a quote.
A quote for an existing itinerary will generally take 4-5 business days. A quote for a tailor-made trip may take up to 10 business days or more, depending on the complexity of your request and the destinations you wish to travel to.
