In need of an adventure? Always. With Covid ruining travel since March of 2020, I am so ready to get exploring again. Then what’s the delay? So often the when, where, and how get in the way of packing your bags and seeing the world. Time for you to join the ease of group travel. The ingredients are simple: you plus other travelers plus cool experiences plus a new part of the world equals group travel. Now, why on earth would I go on a trip with others?!
See and do more with others than you would by yourself and learn from your experienced tour guide
An enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide is often what makes the difference between a good tour and a great tour. An invaluable source of information on local culture, history, and sights, your experienced, local tour guide will also deal with all the time-consuming jobs like buying train tickets, entrance tickets, and reservations. Want to know where the best gelato in Italy is? Your guide has all the best spots. Want to go off-the-beaten-path and see something cool? Ask away. Expert local guides will be with you every step of the way to give you the breakdown on the history and insider knowledge of the world’s greatest destinations. Group travel lets you explore without spending your whole time searching the internet. Are you ready for a personal travel guru? Yes, please!
Budget in advance for your trip and get great value for money
Group tours are an outstanding value for money AND many people find that having a tour booked makes it easier to budget for the trip. Once you’ve paid for your trip, all you need is some spending money for things like beer, souvenirs, a meal here and there, and personal items.
It's amazingly hassle-free
And the best part of traveling with a group is sitting back, relaxing, and just getting to enjoy the adventure. See more of the world without the hassle. Awesome accommodations, local guides, transportation, and amazing experiences are all included, scheduled, and handled for you. Because navigating a new country can sometimes be difficult, but group travel means your trip can be effortless, so you just go with the flow and spend more time vacationing and less time planning.
You don’t have to search for hotels, flights, buses, and connections, and to go through the boring process of comparing prices, reading reviews, and making reservations: someone else is doing that for you. Unless guidebooks are your jam, you don’t even have to buy one: it won’t really be needed.
Satisfaction is (almost) always guaranteed
Tour companies and Fancy Fox Travel want our clients to come back and travel more. We will do our best to make sure the customers who bought a guided tour have an amazing experience and go back home with an overall good understanding of the country they have just visited and its culture; they will make sure that you will be so happy that you want to travel with us again.
You will have a tour leader who will make sure everything runs smoothly
A good tour operator will choose an outstanding tour leader who will work hard to make sure the trip runs smoothly, that problems occurring on the way are solved in the most satisfying manner, and that the various members of the group are 100% happy and safe. Tour operators rely a lot on their leaders, who act as their ears and eyes during tours, who are trained to solve problems and face the most difficult situation (including dangerous or unsafe ones, as well as medical emergencies), and who will turn a good, organized tour into a memorable one for the members of the group. A tour leader will warn you against scams; will take you safely across borders; will take you to the best restaurants and advise on the best local dishes; will pick the best local guides; will share some good information about the country you are visiting; and will have lots of funny anecdotes to share.
You can really relax and enjoy yourself without having to worry about anything
When on a guided tour, you really don’t have to think about anything other than what outfit you are going to wear or which shoes to adventure in that day. Someone else has done all the previous thinking for you and will continue to do all the thinking for you while on tour too – without you even noticing it. You will not even need to remember things such as taking your camera or consider what to wear on a specific day, as your tour leader will most likely remind you.
You can go by yourself without being alone
Not everybody is up for the challenge of traveling alone, but it may be hard to put together a group of friends for our adventures. One of the benefits of group travel is that it will take the edge off. You won’t have to worry about taking pictures with a selfie stick as you will be able to ask others; you won’t have to sit through lonely meals; you will be able to share your “wows” with others and are likely to come back with a good bunch of new friends.
You will definitely have free time to do whatever you would like
Just because you’re going on an adventure with a group of people doesn’t mean you have to be attached at the hip all of the time. Just like when you are going anywhere, you experience your surroundings with whom you want to be with. There will be no holding hands and kumbaya going on. There will be plenty of time in the itinerary for you to go off on your own.
This is going to be fun! I promise!
