What to Expect on an Explorer Adventure
Explorer trips are a “mix-and-match” kind of style, designed for the adventurer who wants a bit of everything. Sightseeing through iconic European cities? Check. Indulging after a sushi masterclass? Check. Riding through cozy towns on two wheels? Check! Hiking to see sunrise views from a volcano? Check!
Max. Adventure, Min. Time
As much as we all love traveling, sometimes we just don’t have the time (or the annual leave) to satisfy our wanderlust. Explorer tours promise maximum adventure in minimum time so you can discover new cultures, try new foods and get your adrenaline fix all in one vacation package!
Good Times, Guaranteed
Packed with various activities, from following in the footsteps of gladiators to camel-riding in the Sahara, Explorer tours are fun for the whole family. Whether you’re traveling solo, getting lovey-dovey on a honeymoonor celebrating an early retirement, an Explorer trip is for everyone!
A Little Bit of Everything
With a world full of new and exciting experiences, it can be hard to limit yourself to just a few. On an Explorer tour, you don’t have to! If you want to sail the Greek Islands while transporting yourself to a world full of mythology and filling your belly with a fresh Mediterranean feast, you can!
No other Adventure Style blends cultural experiences, hearty new culinary cuisines, tales of legends gone by and hidden gems even a local wouldn’t know. With sprinkles of active excursions to relish in the wonders of new lands, you’re sure to leave your Explorer tour yearning for more!

Your Explorer Questions, Answered
How do I know an Explorer tour is right for me?
If you’re the type of traveler who wants a bit of everything on vacation, then an Explorer tour is perfect for you! Designed to get the most out of your trip without cutting corners, an Explorer adventure is budget friendly and the most popular Adventure Style on TourRadar (which is a testament in itself!).
Are Explorer tours fast-paced?
In general, Explorer tours are more fast-paced than our other Adventure Styles. They feature a wide range of activities, often in a short amount of time, but you’ll still have plenty of free time to enjoy your trip. Feel free to contact our Travel Experts as we have plenty of operators who offer slower, more in-depth experiences.
What’s the difference between a Cultural and Explorer tour?
We’ve curated Adventure Styles to suit everyone’s taste, so if you’re looking to fully embrace different cultures (or even get to know your own a bit more), then a Cultural tour is ideal for you! Our Explorer tours are designed for those who love a bit of everything—think Peru adventure that visits Andean hill tribes but also includes a hike to Machu Picchu and llamas!
What if I don’t want to do an activity on tour?
That’s perfectly fine, as most activities on our adventures are optional. Simply contact our Travel Experts or notify your guide while on tour if you’re unable to participate. Sometimes your tour guide may offer an alternative that can be just as exciting, like trying new foods at quaint cafes or having free time to explore on your own!
How do I book an Explorer tour on TourRadar?
Find your next Explorer adventure by searching through our tours until you find one that stands out. Simply choose your dates and fill out your details to secure your trip. If you have any questions along the way, our Travel Experts are standing by 24/7!
