First time on a small group holiday? We've answered the top questions about travelling on an Explore tour:
Can I take my family on a group travel tour?
Yes, our family adventure tours are group holidays for families, typically with around 11-18 people in a group plus a local leader. Adults get the company of other adults and the kids get to make new friends. We run family trips all over the world, to well-known destinations as well as more unusual ones. With lots of activities included and opportunities to meet locals and stay in quirky accommodation, you're sure to return with plenty of stories and memories to last a lifetime.
How sustainable are Explore's group holidays?
Being sustainable and responsible is incredibly important to us at Explore. We're working hard to ensure we travel in a way that positively impacts the people and places we visit. We've committed to offsetting the carbon emissions for all trips taken from 1 January 2020, including flights, accommodation and transport. Find out more about sustainable travel.
What ages are the group holidays suitable for?
Our group tours are suitable for any age - generally the minimum age is 16 however this can depend on the trip. Our trips attract people of all ages, so it doesn't matter if you're in your 30s or your 60s. Check the pace or grade (for walking tours or cycling holidays tours) of a trip to decide if it's what you're looking for.
The minimum age of children on our family tours varies by trip. Check the 'family information' section of the trip page to find out the average and minimum ages.
