While for some people travelling solo is exhilarating and offers up new exciting experiences such as meeting local people and enjoying some “me” time, for others it may seem more intimidating. Travelling to exotic locations unaccompanied may be an overwhelming prospect, but fortunately travelling solo doesn’t mean you have to travel alone.
There are many good tour companies that cater to the solo globetrotter, and can assist in booking guided trips with other like-minded travellers. Travelling on your own can be a rich and fulfilling experience, and travel companies realise that there is a market for independent travellers who want the security and knowledge that travelling with a guided group brings.
Travelling with a tour company allows you to be driven to different destinations so that you to take in the scenery whilst you sit back and relax. No need to seek out public transport and decipher incomprehensible train timetables, and no waiting for unreliable transport in dirty, heaving bus stations. Simply step aboard the organised transport and be whisked away to your next fascinating destination. Activities and sightseeing trips are usually arranged along with restaurant bookings and accommodation reservations, removing all the hassle and leaving you relaxed and stress free.
Whether it be Morocco overland tours or Kenyan safaris, an organised package tour offers expert guides who will take you from one site of interest to another while passing on their wealth of knowledge about the local culture, scenery and attractions. The experienced guides speak the local language and know the local customs and etiquette, and can pass on this knowledge to you, preventing you from making any unnecessary cultural faux pas.
Meeting fellow travellers with similar interests and outlooks on life is just one of the pleasures of travelling with a tour group. Trips such as Morocco overland tours appeal to people from many different countries who love to travel, discover, explore and share their passion for adventure. The fun you have, the experiences you share and the friends you make along the way are all reasons to take a tour package, especially if you’re travelling solo. Free time is usually scheduled in to these types of tours, so there is plenty of time to do your own thing if you want. With no pressure to join in, you can be as independent or involved as you wish.
When travelling on your own, safety can be a great concern, for both yourself and your luggage. Take the concern out of it by travelling with an organised tour group and not only will you have safety in numbers, but your tour group guide will take you to reputable premises and accommodation, will be aware of and avoid local dangers and risks, and will be there to assist you if anything untoward was to occur during your trip, with the full backing of a travel company behind them. This peace of mind is invaluable and can make the difference between having a stressful vacation, and a relaxing holiday.
