Debi, I am another sponsor and I am now curious about this, too.  It might depend somewhat on which country.  I would like to ask specifically how large the group tour to Uganda is!  Thanks!

Good point, Denise. I'm wondering about Kenya and Ecuador... and just about everywhere else in the world. But especially Kenya and Ecuador right now :)

Even though this isn't exactly the same question, I'm going to ask since a Compassion employee hasn't answered this yet. How long are the tour flights to countries in Asia? Like near Indonesia. I look online and the flights I find are like almost 3 days long with 3-4 layovers. Does Compassion take these flights or are theirs with less layovers?

I got an email today about sponsor tours to India and the Philippines, where I sponsor girls. The India flight time is about two days, with a stop in Qatar and, surprising to me, Philippines is only a day.

I have been on 2 sponsors tours- to Bolivia and Honduras. One of the trips there was about 25 people and the other trip, about 35.

Alright, everyone, I got my answer quicker than I thought! We don’t have a specific number of people that go on our tours. Attendance can range from 12-55 people. It typically depends on interest in the particular tour. A good average is around 25 people.

It is very difficult to answer the question regarding how long a flight is since this depends on the flights that we are able to get for that particular tour.  A flight could range from 8-12 hours. And there could be a layover and then a second flight depending on the destination.
