As the name suggests, this Tasmania tour is truly a culinary-centred one calling all foodies. The Apple Isle is a picturesque place, filled to the brim with some of Australia’s finest food and drink. Your taste buds will come to life as you try whiskey, wine, cheese, oysters and berries, all in one week. Head to the country to learn how to make jam at Eureka Farm, and (if you time it right) wander through fields of purple lavender at Bridestowe Lavender Farm.

This safari tour is a wildlife lover’s dream come true! Tick off four reserves and national parks: 

  • Solio Game Reserve: predominantly known for being a safe haven for 200+ rhinoceros, it’s a real treat to experience both morning and afternoon game drives here 
  • Lake Nakuru National Park: Lake Nakuru has an abundance of algae in its waters which attracts large flocks of pink flamingos. You might also spot waterbucks, giraffes and impala 
  • Maasai Mara National Reserve: lions, Cape buffalo, gazelle and cheetah call Kenya’s most famous game area their home 
  • Amboseli National Park: with expansive views of Mount Kilimanjaro, you will have the opportunity to see elephants, wildebeest and hippopotamuses in the wild as well  

4. Peru Splendors – Globus

Peru is a goldmine of adventures, and this small group coach tour is filled with ‘wow’ moments each day. It has been carefully crafted with enough time in each city – in particular, two nights at Machu Picchu so you can explore during the day followed by a magical sunrise – and plenty of local experiences. One of our most popular Local Favourites is bearing witness to El Pago a la Tierra, a ceremony performed by a local shaman to thank Mother Earth and ask for good health, wealth and safe travels. This ritual has been practiced since before the arrival of the Incas so has a fascinating history.  

5. Simply Vietnam with Cambodia – Cosmos

16 days Hanoi to Siem Reap

From walking the hallowed grounds of Bayon Temple, to braving going underground at the Cu Chu Tunnels, Vietnam and Cambodia are two thrilling countries to discover in intimate settings on this small group tour. There’s nothing quite like visiting the Khmer Rouge’s Killing Fields in Phnom Penh, the Forbidden Purple City in Hue, and sailing away across the waters of Ha Long Bay. Plus, we can’t say enough about the epic food that you’ll be able to experience over two weeks – it’s some of the very best in the world! 

With an average of just 20 – 24 guests, a Globus or Cosmos Small Group Discovery coach tour is the perfect way to discover the world in an intimate setting.
