Why book a tour
While you might think of tours as added extras, they can add another dimension to your getaway and often end up being holiday highlights. Tours allow you to get to know your destination a little better, immersing you deep within the scenery, the cuisine and the local cultures. You can tour by foot, boat, train, scooter, tuk-tuk, kayak, elephant or camel; there are countless things to see and hundreds of ways to get you there.
Tours are perfect for solo voyagers – with the added bonus of meeting like-minded travellers and forging lasting friendships – but are also fantastic for families looking to spend a bit more time together, or couples keen to explore the wider world hand-in-hand. Most tour groups are small enough so that you won’t get lost in the crowd, and can vary from a few hours to a few days.
We've got a great range of tours on offer from the best in the business. See our full list of Tour Companies.
Where touring can take you
Tour providers exist to make the entire world accessible for everyone no matter their background. From the astonishing Egyptian pyramids and artwork in the Louvre, to the dazzling city lights and sights in New York and the stretches of seemingly deserted coastal coves in Thailand, there's nowhere in this world a tour can't take you.
In fact, joining a tour is sometimes the only way to reach a particular place, such as Antarctica or the Inca Trail in Peru. You don't necessarily have to be part of a large group, with many destinations reachable through solo and small group tours. So whether you’re travelling on a shoestring or a Champagne budget, you can always make your holiday that little bit more memorable by adding a tour to your travel plans.
