Imagine waking up in a new country, greeted a local breakfast that you can sit down and enjoy since your day’s plan is already set. These are the all-inclusive perks of a small group tour. Why waste your precious vacation time pouring into guide books and maps, trying to decide what to do for the day? Similar to the “Chef’s Choice” option at a restaurant that you wouldn’t dare try to modify, sometimes the experts know best. Group tours provide a full all-around catered experience showing the best the country can offer.
“But group tours are boring and overwhelming…”
You wouldn’t be the first person to say that or think it for that matter. Just the word “tour group” drives most of our minds to pictures of large groups meandering like lost cows in a herd. The matching hats and the group tour guide who no one can hear anyways. Although this is one type of group tour, it certainly isn’t always the case. Small group tours offer a different way to explore and can actually be not only budget-friendly but also sustainable!
Save time AND your budget.
Think about your last grocery shopping trip. When you went hungry and the next thing you know you’ve bought half the store. What was supposed to be your grocery budget for the month you just blew in two hours of hunger daze! If you had stuck with that original grocery list, you would have been right on target. Similar to a grocery store run, sometimes traveling expenses can catch you off guard. Food, accommodation, transportation, and activities all start to add up and before you know it your travel budget is ruined. When you book with a small group tour, you know what you’re paying ahead of time which makes sticking to your budget much easier. Though that is until you see the beautiful Moroccan scarves at a market, we can’t help you there!
Experience an authentic adventure.
Small group tours are led by experienced and knowledgable tour guides who are paid to know the country. Don’t spend your time peeling over which is the best hike in Machu Picchu or when to go see The Lourve. Instead, devote your attention to enjoying the best local dishes at authentic restaurants or exploring the Amazon rainforest led by expert naturalists. Enjoy your travels and leave the nitty-gritty details to the professionals.

Benefitting the animals.
The benefit of small group tours is that they are ideal for wildlife interactions. Less noise and smaller groups of humans offer a more beneficial experience not only for tour attendees but for the animals as well. Then for the animal-loving travelers, G Adventures offer the “Jane Goodall Collection” a selection of 20 wildlife-focused tours. These specific adventures have even been endorsed by the famous ethologist Jane Goodall herself as a result of the tour company’s responsibility and care for the animals involved.
