The Advantages of Small Group Travel

The Advantages of Small Group Travel

Small Group Travel
One of the fastest growing trends in touring is small group itineraries. While small group touring is not a new concept, it has recently caught on with travelers who are looking for a more intimate experience with local cultures and lifestyles; they want to be more of a traveler instead of a tourist. While small group tours still offer you visits to iconic landmarks, it's the other things that really count. Imagine dining at a local's own home for an authentic dinner or getting away from the long lines and large groups of other tourists to see what locals see and do what locals do. Perhaps you're an adventuring type and you're on a small group adventure tour, hiking and camping with only a few others. These are the small group differences you will not be able to get on a more traditional tour group. Small groups range from 12-26 people for a more personal, enriching experience.
