So you want to travel. Like, really travel. But one friend is always “busy” (you know, the one you have to drag from Netflix on Friday nights). And another is only down to lie on a beach for a week straight. If this sounds familiar, here’s a pro tip: go solo on a group adventure.
Doing group travel by yourself is a far cry from third-wheeling. In fact, lots of our travellers decide to roll solo. Plus, there're a ton of perks. So leave your friends behind (they mean well), and travel solo with us.
Perks of SOLO TRAVEL
Remember back to making friends as a kid – just becoming instant besties with everyone. Ah, good times. Well, group travel is basically that (less sticky fingers, better vocabularies). Everyone is like-minded and a similar age. So you’ll get to know each other well. Like, really well. New friends to have your back during the trip? A sweet deal if you ask us.
A local leader
Travelling by yourself or just with friends can mean nights in overpriced hostels and eating at touristy restaurants. Not with us. Our guides are from the destination, so they know all the hot spots. You’ll travel locally, eat locally, sleep locally. FOMO no more. Your local leader will make sure you see Angkor Wat, and eat Phnom Penh’s best amok.
Planning a trip can be tricky – how do you get train tickets in Delhi? Where should you stay in Rome? With us, we’ve already done the hard stuff. You pretty much just have to show up and enjoy the ride. Our itineraries include the highlights, but you have the flexibility to do what you want in your free time. The best of both worlds, really.
