Benefits of Travelling in a Tour Group

I recently did some group tours - in the United States, Greece, the Philippines, Tanzania, and Vietnam - and I must say that I am a touring convert.

Of course, I still love solo trips, I have been an explorer myself for almost three years, but it is quite advantageous to join a group tour. I think I'm in a good position to compare the two, so here's the best thing about traveling in a group tour, according to what I thought.

Someone to show you the way

When traveling solo, you are responsible for finding accommodation, getting there, finding food and drink, and making sure you get the most out of your destination.

On tour, your guide will tell you where you are going every morning, you will probably drive there, and a voucher can also give you information on everything you see along the way.

This is certainly one of the best things about traveling in a group. When traveling alone, in a country where you do not speak the language, there is no one to ask the flood of questions you might ask yourself. Whatever your request, your tour guide is there to help you.

Instant friends

The fact that there are all kinds of people on your trip, who also joined together to make new friends, means that it's so much easier to chat with people.

You can quickly identify the people you think you want to talk to and, during the trip, others may surprise you. Anyway, I can confirm that it is much easier to make friends during visits than to hope to initiate conversations in the common rooms of the hostel.

I have met brilliant people on tours recently and now have new friends around the world.

Tried and tested best of a destination

Regardless of the travel agency chosen, it will use years of proven research to develop the best route. It could take weeks of research to be able to establish a program as worthwhile as they do.

Good travel agencies only recruit locals or people with great local knowledge who can give you the best insider information. They can also recommend the best restaurants and bars to visit.

You can trust a good travel agency to show you the best of a destination.

Safety if anything should go wrong

Join a group of tourists and you will always have a tour guide to advise you in case of problems. This is just a safety net though; you are not five years old and they are not your parents, but at least you have the assurance that someone will support you if everything goes wrong.

A good way to organize group travel

I cannot believe I never thought about it before, but a few people I met during group visits had come with friends. They wanted to go on vacation with their classmates, but nobody really wanted to solve the problem or be responsible for collecting and spending money.

All you have to do is pick a guided tour, sign up with at least one other friend, and tell others that it's what you do. In this way, they can pay their payments directly with the guide and your itinerary is defined. All you have to do is enjoy being with your friends and meeting other people who are part of the trip.

Reassurance for your parents

If your parents are afraid of finding you alone in the big world, joining a group of tourists, at least to begin your journey, is a great way to give them the assurance that you will not be alone.

They know that with the phone number of the travel agency, they can contact you if they need it and there is a security officer.


When traveling as a group, your manager can arrange group discounts on activities, food and beverages. Companies will be happy to offer better prices because you are numerous.

See things you wouldn’t be able to usually

As part of an excursion, your transportation may sometimes access areas that you could not use yourself. This is especially true for hard-to-reach destinations, such as Africa. You will be brought to projects you never heard of, and you will have the opportunity to discover premises like you would not do if you traveled alone.

Have someone for the photos

All of these Instagram selfies become tiring for your friends, you know it. You must involve friends in the action. On tour, everyone is happy to pose for a photo and be tagged because they all want to feel like they are spending the best time with their friends at home.

They are also there to take great pictures of you, of course.

Travelling in a Tour Group

I loved all my adventures on a group trip. Of course, it depends on the group with which you are stuck, but with a positive attitude and a sense of fun, you will certainly meet cool people, with shared interests. Try!
