About group getaways
Our group holidays are based on a maximum number of 10 people travelling including support staff to maximize the flexibility and experience of everyone on the tour. We can arrange tours for larger numbers of people on request.
Our group holidays are based on minimum tour participants of 4-8 guests, however where guests are travelling on a 1:1 support category then tours will still proceed with a minimum of 1-2 guests.
Yes, friends and couples travelling together may request twin or double room accommodation as preferred.
We regularly arrange tours on behalf of groups of friends, families and couples who would like to travel and where not all tour guests require support services. We would be happy to arrange the tour to ensure you can travel together as a group and arrange appropriate personal support services for those guests that require assistance.
In group getaways guests have the option to share supports to reduce costs and enhance independence and social inclusion. Staff ratios are determined by the support needs and preferences of each holiday guest. The general ratios are supplied at 1:3, 1:2, or 1:1 staff to guests.
