7 Reasons Why Group Tours are a More Fun Way to Travel!
Many think of group tours as a regimented experience, but it’s not that way anymore. It’s evolved for adventurers who want to be with others as they explore deeper off the typical beaten path. You can still be independent, but traveling is totally enhanced when you can share the activities and memories with others.
1. Saving Time, Zero Hassle
Trip planning is time-consuming and full of stress on arrival if you don’t speak the language. There’s no overthinking as we cover every aspect: airport transfers, bag porters, meals, wake up calls to great suggestions for excursions in free time. Our expert local guides and GTL work full-time behind the scene to make sure things go smoothly. You just need to focus on the wonders around you.
2. See Things You Can’t on Your Own
Unless you’re an expert in history, culture, infrastructure and ecosystem of an area, it’s easy to miss critical things. We are experts who have been there and know the essentials. We find hidden gems you never heard about. Often, we can skip the lines into major sites and connect you with local families. You’ll get the best commentary on each site, even with headsets to hear above crowds. From children to wildlife, we enable you to connect close up and personal for your best photos.
3. Phenomenal Accommodations
We can often negotiate deluxe properties at a price no one could get. How? By depositing a year in advance on the lodges, hotels, tented camps, yachts, five-star villas and more. (Examples include group stays in places over $1000 per night: Six senses, White Pearl Villas, Anantara, Grootbos, Shamwari, Four Seasons, Fairmont and dozens more around the world.)
4. Safety in Numbers
Traveling alone carries risks. Studies prove travelers are far more protected in groups. With our respected national licensed guides, groups are less a target from thieves, than individuals towing their luggage around cities! Emergency enroute? We can handle any situation for you to provide ease and comfort.
5. More Affordable
Fact-the more trip participants, the greater buying power we have for you. I often see safari companies charging three times our rate, as we follow them in the same jeeps through the entire safari circuit, sharing same meals and lodges. We know all the net pricing in each country and price our trips lower than any Quality tour operator.
6. Flexibility and Free Time
We pack a wallop of the activities each day for you to get the most “bang for your buck.” We now include a leisure day to play on your own. You can even “defect” off any day tour if you like. Many AFSers and on other countries solo before and after our trips.
7. Less Stress
A gazillion things can go wrong traveling solo like – who you gonna call? Weather, missed flights, strikes, cancellations, illness, lost passport, the list is endless. Let us what the small stuff for you. We are responsible for your vacay happiness.
Traveling alone on a solo vacation package often gets an undeserved bad reputation. Going on a solo trip can change you fundamentally. Some might say you’re crazy but here at Adventures for Solo Travelers invite you to be a little crazy and get a taste of the world on your own terms! Our solo vacation packages can be way more freeing and more fun than traveling with friends or family. When you go on solo adventures with a group, you get the best of both worlds. Our solo vacations packages can give you a true taste of wanderlust and independence!
Your Solo Vacation Package, Designed With You in Mind
Choosing solo vacation packages doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to travel all on your own. Going with a group can enhance the experience. You will make lifelong friends and share unforgettable memories together. With a group tour, you get the benefits of a tour leader who’s scouted each location and who can ensure that you’re getting the best options for your trip. However, you can pick and choose what you want to do with the group. You also get the built-in safety of being with other people. If you’re climbing the Andes, going on an African river safari, or checking out the Amazon jungle, a few knowledge adventurers by your side can be a real boon.
Choosing Locations for Solo Tours and Adventures
When you’re traveling on your own, you get to choose where you go, and there are all kinds of destinations that are perfect for the solo traveler. Ultimately, you need to think about what you want — that can be hard for some people, especially when you’re used to putting your children first, taking your parent’s considerations into account, or thinking about the opinions of your colleagues. Luckily, when you choose a solo vacation package case, you can put all that aside.
You simply need to think about the place that speaks to you. Is there a destination you’ve always dreamed of? Whether that’s somewhere more urban or somewhere exotic and hidden – there’s nothing stopping you. On the other hand, is there something you’ve always wanted to see? For some people, that’s a particular work of art, for others it’s a festival in a foreign location, a certain ocean, or a mountain range. What about activities? Have you always wanted to feed baby animals, sail on the world’s tallest ship, or relax at top-notch spas? Even if you don’t know anyone else who wants to do those things, it’s okay — you can do them on your own.
You work hard, and you deserve to play hard. Treat yourself to a solo vacation package you will never forget, and join us on one of our upcoming trips. At Adventures for Solo Travelers, we’re always planning something new so contact us today and keep checking back for more ideas and possibilities.
It’s our travel family! Anyone can go anywhere with any tour company for any wow-factor. (We don’t know why, but AFSers really connect. It’s as if Travel fares sprinkle love and kindness dust on our groups.) We draw warm-hearted people who make you feel “a part of” the tribe. You can’ help but return home with a bunch of new forever friends.
