Group tour accommodation
From homestays to haciendas, eco lodges to guesthouses, the accommodation on our group tours has been specifically selected to enhance your experience and to capture the essence of the local regions we travel to.
We stay in simple hotels, homestays, guest houses and on occasion hostels, which are generally the equivalent in comfort of a 3 star hotel. The properties we stay at are usually situated close to the main sights and town centres. They are chosen for their local ambience rather than star rating and we look for attributes like character, location, atmosphere, cleanliness and security. You will find clean, comfortable rooms with en-suite facilities (occasionally bathrooms may be shared, although this is rare).
Service at hotels may be a little erratic at times. Central heating, hot water and electricity may fail and the hotel staff may not speak English but this is all part of the adventure. Be prepared for the odd mishap and appreciate that we are often travelling through poor and underdeveloped regions. If you can take a flexible approach to this, have a good sense of humour, go with the flow and accept that things don’t always go according to plan, you will maximise the enjoyment of your adventure holiday.
We match up solo travellers with another group member of the same sex. Mostly this will be in twin rooms although sometimes in triples depending on the group composition and hotel rooming structure. When staying in the Amazon jungle and on Amantani Island accommodation is rustic and on a shared basis.
