Group Travel Tours

Traveling is back on the agenda again for many people, and we couldn't be more excited.

Group travel tours allow solo travelers to experience the adventure and excitement of travel while enjoying the safety and comfort of traveling with a group.


Group Travel Companies

One way to learn about the best group travel companies is by word of mouth. Start by asking friends and family members—and even work colleagues—about their experiences. There is a lot to learn from others who have traveled in this way, both good and bad.

Find out what they liked and didn't like about the group travel company they used and the particular trip they took. Though personal recommendations are useful, bear in mind that everyone's tastes and needs are different. Consider recommendations from friends as just one part of your research into group travel companies and tours.

You can also explore “best of” lists from travel websites and travel blogs. Here are some examples:

Next, check out travel sites such as Fodors and Trip Advisor that have very robust forums populated with travelers very willing to share their personal experiences using travel groups. Online forums provide the opportunity to communicate directly with fellow travelers about their experiences to help you get started with your research. Seek out these websites to better understand what they are like from unbiased sources. Once you have narrowed your search down to a few contenders, it's time to dig a bit deeper.

Review each company’s website and read about the different group travel packages they offer. Some companies may offer just a few tour options while others may feature a large variety of options. Make sure you have a list of “must-haves” for your trip on hand while you are researching. If you establish a definitive list of requirements, it will make things that much easier when it’s time to choose your travel company.

Some examples of questions you might want answers to when you’re between group tours and tour companies are:

  • How long has the company operated in this area of the country or the world?
  • Are there any accommodations for older people, kids, or people with disabilities?
  • Is there an additional fee for solo travelers?
  • How well-informed are the guides?
  • What is the average size of the tour groups?
  • Is this tour recommended for solo travelers?
  • How much does it cost?
  • Are accommodations, flights, local transportation, meals, and/or guides included?
  • What travel insurance requirements does the tour or the country have?

Make a travel companies list and narrow it down based on your personal requirements. The best tour companies are well-organized and very clear about what type of experience they provide. It's always best to know what to expect before you leave home, whether you’re looking for a boutique experience or wish to book with one of the world’s biggest travel companies.

While researching, don’t hesitate to contact a travel group company directly if you have more questions and cannot find the answers on their website. Make sure you have a list of questions ready and a place to take notes if you plan on calling a group travel company’s helpline.

Next, we'll explore three of today's most sought-after group travel companies. These companies offer tours that are designed for solo travelers, families, and friend groups who are looking to get out there and explore the world. Peruse their sites and see if one might be the perfect fit for you.
