Authentic experiences: Down to Earth is a range of holidays brought to you by Tribes Travel. The holidays are all about the love of travel in order to experience the world's beauty and diversity. Their type of travel is about fun and adventure, about being inspired, awed and sometimes moved by what you see and experience. It is about the joy of living.
Responsible travel: Enjoyment at the expense of others is not an option they choose. Down to Earth make travelling make a difference to someone or to some part of the earth that needs support. They believe their holidays do this in various ways, including carbon offsetting and helping grassroots projects.
Simple but comfortable accommodation: They don't go for luxury hotels, but enjoy comfort without the frills.
Good, not fancy food: We all love good food don't we? Down to Earth don't go for posh nosh, but realise the importance of good food when travelling.
Reasonable, affordable prices: Since Down to Earth don't use the most luxurious or expensive accommodation or services, their prices are accessible for many people. On group trips they also make cost savings due to the numbers of people which certain services (eg guides and some transport) can be shared amongst.
Down to Earth prefer to stay grounded where possible and practical. They only fly if there's really no better way, and prefer train and road. Walking, cycling, and perhaps horse riding at times are all great ways to travel and see the world too, and they include them as often as possible.
Almost all of their holidays can be taken with two or more people travelling together. Down to Earth can also organise these holidays for groups of friends or for families. The prices are based on two sharing, but they can give prices for single supplements if required. These are set itineraries, but they can be taken at nearly any date you wish, subject to availability.
Many of the holidays offer set group departures as well as being available to individual travellers. Anyone can join one of these group trips.
Sizes: They are usually based on a minimum of 6 people and maximum of 12 people, though this is confirmed on each holiday page.
Leaders: The group departures include a local trip leader
