What is a small group tour?
When small group touring your guides are not there to herd you around – but to advise, assist with your ride and make sure that everything runs smoothly. You will have a stress free adventure even in the most exciting destinations. With a small group each person’s needs are more easily addressed while your trip unfolds.
Why consider small group travel?
Group tours are usually prearranged, prepaid, and include transportation, lodging, dining, and attraction admissions. Guides will accompany you on your trip to ensure that everything runs smoothly and will be your trusted point of contact throughout your tour.
Are tour groups worth it?
If you are timid about traveling group tours are the best way to get started getting out!
For the new or timid traveler, booking a group tour can really help avoid some of the anxiety that comes from planning a trip as most trips will include accommodations and meals as well as scheduled stops. There will also be free time for travelers to explore on their own or with new friends made in the small group they are traveling with, helping to build confidence to venture further out and on their own as well.
For some travelers that are experienced they may have a harder time letting the tour company take the lead than others. In some instances though it is much safer to travel in a small group so this also must be considered.
