All of our World Travellers travel consultants are avid travellers themselves, and are always looking for their next bucket list adventure. Sometimes, they like to bring you along for the ride! Our group tours are organised by our highly experienced consultants who have a passion for sharing destinations with others.
Why do a group tour with World Travellers?
A group tour is a great option no matter what kind of traveller you are. Here are a few reasons why you should consider doing a group tour with us!
- Get a knowledgeable, trusted guide: You know your guide is well-travelled and experienced and will be able to take care of things should something go wrong. They've been in all kinds of sticky situations on their own travels, which makes them well equipped to handle any that crop up on yours!
- Get to the heart of a destination: Our consultants won't just take you to the crowded tourist hotspots - they'll show you the local places you may not get to see on a standard tour. From cute eateries down hidden alleyways to marvellous views without the jostling, you'll get an immersive experience.
- Meet other like-minded travellers: Group tours are perfect for solo travellers, as while you may head to the airport on your own, as soon as you meet your fellow travellers you'll never be alone (unless you want to be!) Your guide will be with you from start to finish, and you'll get the chance to meet other travellers with an interest in the place you're going, making new friends along the way. By the end of your tour, you'll have firm friends for life.
- Leave the boring stuff to us: Organising a trip can be fun, but it can also become a little stressful at times. On our group tours, you can leave the organisation to your tour leader and just enjoy the destination and all it has to offer.
