First Timers guide to guided group travel

//First Timers guide to guided group travel

There are so many options for ‘once in a lifetime’ travel these days that it can be overwhelming. There are hundreds of websites offering flights, hotels, new experiences and excursions – not to mention thousands of reviews and comparison websites to wade through.

There is in fact so much to organise that booking your ‘Younique’ trip independently can take hours. And it can be a complex procedure to keep all the receipts, booking references and dates organised.

Holiday booking does not have to be this way.

Why not book the whole trip in one go with guided group travel. Guided group travel has moved on a lot since the coach trips of the 1980s, and no longer just for gap years and school groups.  Its never too late to go on a new adventure.

They are as vibrant and exciting as something you organised independently but without the hassle.

So, what can you expect from a guided group trip?

1)      Everything is done for you. Starting with the first enquiry until you board the plane to come home, everything is organised for you. From hotel and flights, to daily excursions and experiences.

2)      Guided group travel can be as personal and authentic as you want. Wherever you are planning to go on your holiday, and whatever experience or historical site you would like to visit this can be arranged.

3)      Guided group travel is not limited to the well-trodden tourist traps. Visit local markets, run by local communities, invest in them.  Not only is this great for the sustainability of tourism in the area, it also means you get authentic experiences.

4)      Security and peace of mind. When booking and travelling independently there is always a little bit of doubt that things will go wrong and you will be stranded. With a guided group trip, if the worst happens it will be sorted by the local, in -country teams leaving you to enjoy your holiday.

5)      You can expect whatever you would like from your holiday. Group travel is no longer the structured itinerary of decades past. You decide where and how you would like to experience the world.  With days for excursions and days for you to explore the destination, guided group travel really does have it all.

To book your perfect guided group holiday give the friendly team at Younique Travel Adventures a call, they specialise in group travel, to give you an experience that is ‘Younique’, sustainable and authentic.  So, if its working with communities in Kenya, practising Yoga in India, or exploring Vietnam.  They will work with you to find the perfect experience just for you.
