Group Tours FAQ’s
What type of groups do we work with?
We organise walking tours for groups in the Canary Islands, as well as the Camino de Santiago, the Via Francigena (Camino to Rome) and other fantastic cycling and walking trails in Ireland. We work with walking clubs, parish groups, colleges, Universities, school groups, charities, scout groups and families.
What are the best destinations for group tours?
We have some wonderful itineraries in Tenerife, Gran Canaria and La Gomera, perfect for groups. They can be adapted to different fitness levels and they all include handpicked accommodation in the islands so you can relax after your day’s walk.
What do your group walking trip itineraries include?
Our itineraries include accommodation for your group, meals, airport transfers, luggage transfer between hotels, detailed walking notes and maps and a support contact number. We can also add extra activities and services for the group.
What level of difficulty for your group?
The route that you choose will depend on the type of vacation that you are looking for. Walking clubs and hiking clubs may choose some difficult walking routes along the way or you may be a group travelling together for fun and adventure. Both ways of experiencing the Canary Islands are equally enjoyable. Our team will help you to decide on the best itinerary to suit the level of difficulty the group wishes to take.
Can you provide tailored itineraries?
Yes, we can fully tailor and adapt your itinerary to suit the needs of your group.
Can we have a guide?
Yes, if you feel your group trip could be made better by the presence of a local guide we can provide one for you and your group. We recommend a guide for any group with 15 or more people.
Can you come to speak to my group?
Yes, if your group is based anywhere in Ireland we can come to visit you to discuss your group tour in more details. For groups based outside of Ireland we can arrange a Skype call or online webinar.
What meals are included?
For groups of 15+ we include both breakfasts and dinners. Picnic lunch can be arranged in areas where there are no other services available.
What are the hotels and rooms like?
Our tours include a selection of great properties, handpicked by the team, ranging from boutique hotels and casas to paradores with friendly and welcoming staff. All rooms are en-suite and we offer single rooms (1 single bed), twin sharing rooms (2 single beds in the room) or double sharing rooms (1 double bed).
How do luggage transfers work?
Once you confirm your trip we will send you luggage tags for your group which each person needs to place on their bag. Each morning before you begin your walk (if you are changing accommodation that night), you need to place your bag downstairs at reception in the hotel. The bag will be collected by the luggage transporter and brought to the next hotel.
Do you offer discounts for group tours?
As standard we offer a discounted rate for groups of more than 10 persons. Further discounts may also apply is your group is above 20 people.
How large can our group be?
We handle groups of between 10 and 120 persons.
Do you arrange airport transfers?
To make your group trip run more smoothly we can include airport transfers to the hotel and back to the airport. Our packages also include transfers to the trails and back to the hotel, when required.
How does payment work?
Once you have confirmed your trip, payments can either be made to us through the group leader or organisation, or members of your group can pay individually. Payment can be taken over the phone or using our online booking form. If paying individually, the deposit for most trips will be €180 per person (this may be a slightly bigger amount for longer tours). If the organisation or group leader is paying directly, the deposits will generally be 20% of the total trip cost.
