Have you ever travelled in a Group? If not, here are some good reasons why you should do it!
1. Itinerary is done
Although group travel tends to have a reputation for being complicated and difficult, it doesn’t necessarily have to be like that! In fact, having a tour operator by your side takes the stress out of the trip. You don’t have to do the planning, all transfers and excursions are well thought-out and planned ahead of time. This means one less thing to worry about, your only responsibility is to sit back and enjoy! The best part – no one drives which is enough stress reduction on its own.
2. New Friends
The great thing about group travel is that, you won’t be alone once you get to the departure Point. Traveling in a group means there are a wider variety of people with similar interests, creating great conversations and bonding experiences. Group travel can give you the chance to meet people and make new friends. You’ll meet individuals, who are also passionate about travel and may have experiences that are similar to your own. And even if you don’t immediately, you’ll soon create some during the trip!
3. The Tour Guide
An enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide is often what makes the difference between a good tour and a great tour. An invaluable source of information on local culture, history and sights, your experienced, local tour guide will also deal with all the time consuming jobs like buying train tickets, and organising national park permits.
4. Environmental impact
Travelling in a group is more environmentally friendly. Even when you do travel in a private vehicle, group travel leaves a much lighter carbon footprint than if you each hired a car. All the tour operators we work with take responsible tourism very seriously.
Traveling in a group means you’ll spend less time worrying about getting lost and getting ripped off, and more time having a great time. When you’re in a group, everyone has each other’s backs. It’s not an excuse to be careless, but it’s nice to know that you’re with folks who are looking out for one another.
