    Knowledgeable local guides

    A guide is your personal historian, therapist, accountant, event manager, a foreign currency expert and professional friend. Guides are the very definition of “going the extra mile.” Whether you have a free evening in Paris or are trying to decide between sandboarding or skydiving in Mossel Bay, your guide is there to offer unique recommendations and insights that only a local would know.

    Unexpected connections

    Group adventures guarantee good times with a new group of friends; sharing experiences with like-minded individuals is a major highlight of touring! For travellers setting out on a small group adventure, there are still plenty of opportunities to make connections with other visitors and locals alike - striking up conversations and forging bonds is easier when you're sharing similar experiences!

    Hassle-free travel

    An organised adventure takes the hassle out of planning since every detail is sorted out before you even arrive in your starting city. With transportation, accommodation, most meals and sightseeing included, there’s very little left to coordinate and plan. You’ll enjoy effortlessly moving from point A to B, without having to worry how far away the next gas station is or if you just took a wrong turn.

    No dull moments

    When you travel on your own, you often find yourself face deep in maps and guidebooks. If you’ve rented a car then you're spending time in an office comparing rates and sorting out foreign insurance plans. But why spend a moment of your vacation on the tedious bits? Organised group adventures are designed to make even the most routine elements, like a bus journey, valuable experiences thanks to your guide's stories.

For a personal touch...

Whilst our dreams of travelling may be big, your group doesn't have to be. Small group adventures are exactly what they sound like - organised group trips that limit the number of travellers on each departure so that everyone can experience their destination in a more personal way. 

Perks of small group travel

✓ Added flexibility - If you want to go off-the-beaten-track you won't have to go it alone.
✓ Personalised attention - Fewer people means your experience will always be exactly what you want it to be. 
✓ No waiting in lines - You'll always be first to the breakfast buffet (or when you have a question for your guide!)
✓ Reduced environmental impact - Smaller transportation used means you're doing your part to travel sustainably.

Can't make up your mind? Luckily, our Travel Experts have put together a guide on choosing the right group. Alternatively, if you're drawn to the more intimate side of our small group adventures, why not opt for a private adventure?

Group Travel FAQs

  • Why should I go on a group adventure?

    A group adventure gives you the chance to experience new cultures, both in the country you visit and amongst the nationalities of your fellow tour buddies. With transport, accommodation, activities and some meals all organised for you, you can spend more time enjoying your destination and let your guide worry about the details. Need we say more? 
  • How many people will be in my group?

    This answer will be completely different for each and every operator, adventure style, and trip. Some operators host 48-seat coaches that travel across Europe, however, you're also likely to find sailing itineraries in Greece where each boat will host a different number of travellers. Either way, you’re sharing the experience with like-minded people who love travelling just as much as you do!
  • What sort of people will be on the tour?

    Travellers from all walks of life will be hopping on or hopping off your group tour. You’ll often hear operators talk about ‘meeting other like-minded travellers’, but they’re not wrong! You WILL meet like-minded travellers on your tour, and even if you have nothing else in common, you will share a unique bond and a love for the destination you both choose to travel to - and that’s a fact. 
  • Can I have my own room on a group trip?

    Depending on the tour or adventure style, solo travellers will be sharing a room with other solo travellers, or if it is a hostel tour, then there may be 4-8 travellers in the same room. If you’re travelling solo, then you’ll be sharing with someone of the same gender. Or, if you want to pay a little bit extra for a private room, single supplements are available for many trips upon request.
  • Can solo travellers join group trips?

    Absolutely! In fact, you'll find that the majority of people on a group trip are solo travellers. Some people do bring their friends or family along, but in most cases, your trip will be full of other adventurers who want to see the world and are just as excited as you are. Amazing connections are created over shared experiences, so be prepared to walk away with some newfound friends!
  • How do I find a group trip that's right for me?

    With 50,000+ adventures on TourRadar, it can be hard to narrow it down to just one (or two!) To help you, we've created easy-to-use filters on every page so that you can find the perfect trip for you. Simply use the search bar, select an Adventure Style, or the destination you've been eyeing up to start your search. If you need any help, our Travel Experts are here 24/7 to answer any questions you may have.
