An organised tour can be a great way to experience a country and having a local guide on hand can really simplify the travel experience. For a solo traveller, having the chance to travel in a group can be a great way of meeting people and getting more out of your trip and many travellers have stories of meeting friends for life on a tour.
Travelling with the right tour operator can be a great option if you have limited time for your trip but want to get the most out of it; it can take a lot of hassle out of your experience; in certain parts of the world it is a safer way to travel and it can even save you money.

Group travel is not for everyone, but for those considering a tour then it is essential that you pick the right tour operator. Different companies provide a very different experience so it pays to make sure that the tour you pick suits the way you want to travel.
