Whether it is a trip through the heartland of America, the medieval cities of Europe, the ancient cities of South America or the lands of the Maharajah, a lot of people find the thought of how to connect one location with the next, and what to do in those locations exhausting. How to I get from Paris to Cologne? Will I have to wait in a long queue at the Taj Mahal? How many places can I reasonably see in Washington in a day?
Sometimes, when you are ready to experience a location – be in a new country, or part of your own, what you really want is to sit back and relax, enjoy the sights and sounds and let someone else worry about how you get between places, or what you are doing for breakfast. Which is where group touring is a fantastic way to experience locations around the world!
There are large group tour operators who offer a number of destinations across the world – their inclusions range for the all inclusive luxury style packages of APT, Scenic and Insight Vacations, to the good quality programmes of AAT Kings, Travelmarvel, Globus, Wendy Wu Tours and Trafalgar that cover what you want to see but may not include as many meals or drinks.
For the more budget conscious or those who enjoy a bit of adventure, but like the security of having someone there to look after your problems there are slew of operators running everything from small to large groups like Cosmos or Peregrine, or smaller groups and more intimate experiences with companies like G-Adventures or Intrepid.
Then you have your dedicated small group tour operators that use good quality accommodation, and tie off the ability to see fantastic sights with an intimate touring experience, or a unique focus on the touring, such as is available through operators like Back-Roads Touring, the Africa Safari Co, or National Geographic Journeys by G-Adventures.
Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and the Americas. Small groups, adventurous travel, luxury travel, large groups, short tours and longer voyages. There is a group tour out there for everyone, whether its the desire to hike around the Inca Trail or relax in Luxury as you cruise the Danube, there are group programmes available for every style of traveller – and no better way to let someone else worry about the little things while you enjoy the opportunity to explore, visit and make new connections.
So if exploring the world in good company sounds like something you are interested in then now is the time to come and speak with the wide range of group travel experts that will for one night only be accessible at ..
My Travel Expo.
4pm til 7pm, 22 September 2016,
@ Shoalhaven Ex-Servicemans Club Worrigree.
Call (02) 4421 5577 for more information
From the crumbling castles of the British Isles, to the romantic vineyards of France, from the sun blasted hills of a Santorini street, to the crisp mountain air of the Norwegian Fjords, Europe has an incredibly vast array of sights and sounds to attract the visitor, with many travelling there again, and again and again.
Whether it is a short visit combining city stays and touring in places like London and Rome, taking a river cruise down the Danube or Douro, hopping on a coach tour of the Baltic and Former Russian States, embarking on a self drive holiday of the UK, or enjoying a cruise around the Mediterranean or Adriatic, Europe seems to call us again and again.
This August 4th, we are hosting a catered evening (so it is essential you RSVP if you wish to attend) to allow six specialists tell you how you can experience Europe in all in splendour. With film presentations and lively talks they will cover everything from cruising the waterways and oceans of Europe, to coach touring, city stays and self drive holidays.
Take this chance to meet the Experts from Trafalgar Tours, Insight Vacations, Princess Cruises, Qantas Holidays, Scenic and APT as they share their love for everything Europe at the Worrigee Ex-Servicemans Sports Club from 5pm on the 4th August.
All you need to do to reserve your space is click here and fill out a registration – places are limited, so make sure you secure yours today!
What a fantastic roll-out we had for our Travel Expo yesterday, the largest we have had yet, and in the best venue to date, if I do say so myself!
For those Solo Sisters members that attended that we didn’t get a chance to speak with, I hope that you had a chance to talk to some of the providers we are working with on our 2015, 2016 and 2017 departures. I hope that you are excited as we and our travel partners are about some of the upcoming trips from Africa to Kangaroo Island- including the three we revealed on the night: Mississippi Experience in May 2016, Rhine & Rhone Experience in September 2016, and our Mekong Encounter in February 2016.
