How Our Holidays Work
Probably the best way to describe our holidays is flexible tours. This means that our customers can choose which places to visit by combining different extensions and excursions, and which hotels to stay in. You can also take two or more of our tours back-to-back, creating a longer, multi-country holiday. In most cases, you will be together with other Llama Travellers, but not necessarily the same people throughout your holiday. We find this works very well, allowing you to get to know like-minded people, but not having to spend all your time with the same group. You are free to explore on your own, or if you make friends you can share your experiences with others.
If we don't have anyone else taking a particular part of a holiday, we can still operate this just for you, although there may be an extra cost. Most holidays are guaranteed to operate if we have two passengers or more, although some holidays have a higher minimum number. We will advise you if this is the case at the time of booking.
Excursions are usually taken together with other Llama Travel customers in groups of no more than 18 people. If we have more than 18 booked, we operate two groups. If we have only one or two people booked on an excursion, the excursion may be operated together with people other than Llama Travel customers. In some places, the excursions are operated by one of our local partners, so you may be with people other than Llama Travel customers and the group may be a mix of English and other languages. In these cases, group sizes can sometimes be larger. If you would like to know the likely situation for your holiday, please ask us and we will be able to check. Transfers may be in a vehicle with more than 18 people.
We get a wide range of people taking our holidays, with probably the largest group being couples aged in their forties to sixties, or even older. However, we also have a large number of customers in their 20s and 30s, especially for some of the more active holidays. What unites everyone is a sense of curiosity and a desire to discover new cultures, landscapes and wildlife.
Although most of our customers travel with friends or family, we also have quite a few single travellers who are happy to mix and match as described above. However, if you prefer to be with the same group of people throughout your holiday, perhaps a more traditional group tour operator would suit you better.
We have found that our modular approach allows us to offer high quality, flexible holidays at the best possible prices. If you would like more information about this, please call us on 020 7263 3000 to discuss your requirements.
