Why You Should Be Touring This Way?
Some people can find solo trips a daunting experience – even if that is within their own country at times. And yet, they also find most group trips a bothersome experience: you probably do too, if you just imagine trailing behind a tour guide together with a large group of individuals, and having a large bus take you around everywhere. These group trips often tend to not give much satisfaction to the curious traveller who likes to explore a bit more of the world, and prefers to linger on at certain locations. Of course, travelling solo would be the best option in this case, but sometimes, travelling alone can be a very dangerous proposition. So what are you to do? The answer is small group tours! These tours differ from your standard group tour in the fact that they have no more than ten to twenty people travelling together, and they give you a chance to do much more. Here are some of their biggest advantages:
- Budget for expenses in advance and cut down costs – expenses are one of the biggest headaches of planning any day trips from Adelaide. It is hard to estimate costs for a visit to a location you have never previously been in, especially if the location in question is a foreign country. But with small group tours, the budgeting for such sightseeing tours becomes considerably easier: most of the larger expenses are fully explained to you, and you can pay for them beforehand, removing the need to carry large amounts of money with you whilst on the go – which is truly an advantage in terms of security. This means that you only have to take with you enough money for your daily expenses and souvenirs at most. Furthermore, companies that organize these tours tend to have a good idea of the best hotels and resorts to book, so you also get to save money on this front.
- Have an experienced tour guide with you – another great advantage of travelling with a group is the presence of a responsible team leader who can act as a guide for the rest of the travellers. Depending on where you travel and what you decide to see, you can learn anything from the history to the food and fashion of a specific location. For example, small group wine tours come with guides who can act as the designated driver and also teach you a lot about the production process of different wine varieties.
- Get to know the local community better – when tourists visit any country or sightseeing spot, they are often limited to designated tourist spots by those specific countries and cities, when in fact, there is far more to see and learn. Group tours such as these are valuable because they let you travel further off the beaten track and explore areas that you might otherwise miss, or might be too scared to venture into alone.
