They're great for first time solo female travellers, and more experienced travellers. But, choosing a tour that's perfect for you can be challenging... 


Listen now to get the best advice on choosing a tour that's right for you and my experience of using tour groups...

 

This travel episode is about ...

Why joining a tour group is a great way to meet other Travellers

Using a Tour group in China and India when starting my round the world trip

I was a first time traveller – didn’t initially have the confidence to go alone

Kavita was the first guest on the Show and travelled alone to China – check out her episode here

Relax and enjoy the journey, your itinerary is already set out

Great for solo female travellers – safety and have company

Mix with a group of people – meeting some friends for life and share experiences and get close quickly

Someone in your photos too! 

Quick tips:
Do your research see what different tours offer. What do you want to see, do and experience when you’re in that city / country – do they cover it?
What’s included in the price? Ideally you want accommodation, transport, breakfast and evening meals (lunch would be a bonus)
How many people on the tour? Large or small groups? (I prefer smaller groups as they’re more personal)
More flexibility on what you can do – large groups have a very fixed itinerary
Reputation – has the tour group got good reviews and are they relevant to you?
Price – have you got a good deal? I don’t mean have you got the cheapest price possible, as the cheapest certainly does not mean the best!! I mean do you see everything you want to see, do you get accommodation, transport, meals included? Do you get excited when you read the set itinerary? If yes, then it’s a good deal.
In perspective, I paid £1500 for my trip around China and I got to do all that I wanted a so much more!
