Our business model can be described as community tourism. We’re not just a tour company, we’re a community of like-minded travelers. We build our programs based on your input and we take pride in giving everyone a chance to experience the real flavor of a destination. It’s not just about having great tours, but also creating local benefits for local people. 

Our accommodations are locally operated and owned and include bed and breakfasts, farms, monasteries, and anything that would capture the flavor of the area. Travel between destinations might include buses, trains, canoes, rickshaws, and anything that offers variety, excitement, and captures the real local color.

Touring with like-minded people and with a trip leader provides the freedom of independent travel with the security of a group. We are all born with a natural curiosity to be explorers or travelers, but society pressures us to be tourists. Adventure People are travelers, not tourists.

Depending on the location, our groups may stay with a local family and take language lessons for a few days to learn a bit of the local language to enhance their experience for the rest of the trip.

We’ve confirmed that travel is a big priority in the lives of our travelers and seeing other cultures and meeting other people is an important pillar of their journeys.  We promote an environment that fosters friendships and encourages participation from everyone involved. From local weekends to world journeys… together, we’ll discover amazing destinations and incredible adventures!

Small Groups

We don’t like big groups… period. Small groups offer the opportunity to feel like you’re exploring a destination with a group of friends — because that’s what they’ll be after your trip. Our groups range in size depending on the destination and the activities, but are generally no more than 16 people.

Authentic Experiences

Follow your instinct for adventure, not the herd. When you travel with us, you’ll be traveling with a local, taking you out of the guidebooks and into a world of beautiful landscapes, wildlife, physical challenges, and new cultures. We pride ourselves on introducing our guests to extraordinary destinations, distinctive accommodations, and out-of-the-ordinary experiences.

Great Value

Our style of travel is active travel and our trips come with many inclusions that you won’t typically find anywhere else. While some companies package tours with just hotel and airfare and leave you to explore on your own, we believe in creating truly authentic experiences with a local guide who will be with you every step of the way.


Safety is our foremost priority. We only work with guides who have the necessary certifications required for the activities they are leading, as well as their location, such as Wilderness First Responder, Swift Water Rescue, First Aid and CPR. Adventure activities generally require the guest to have control of his or her own equipment and/or footing. Therefore, we can never absolutely guarantee your safety, but we will take the appropriate steps to help you mitigate the inherent risks.

Extraordinary Guides

The best person to show you the heart of a destination are the ones who live there. This is why we work exclusively with local guides in all of our destinations. Our guides are many things — athlete, naturalist, historian, mechanic, chef — but, above all, they love what they do and they love people. They have a unique ability to inspire confidence, create camaraderie and deliver a fun-filled vacation for you.

Frequent Traveler Benefits

Many of our travelers have taken multiple trips with us and we believe in rewarding those who keep coming back by offering a rewards program with discounts on travel and other exclusive benefits. To learn more, please visit https://adventurepeople.net/frequent-traveler-program/.
