Tours & Activites
Whilst we normally prefer to go solo and see everything ourselves, there are times when you will need to pay for tours, or you may prefer to travel with another group.
Traveling with a group is an experience you will never forget, you will make friends and memories for life. If you have always wanted to travel with someone but none of your friends ever wanted to, first off show your friends our site, then book a group trip. You will be nervous to start with but we promise you that the second you arrive at the accommodation you will make new friends. The main thing people who haven't traveled before don't realize is that everyone else is in the same position. It is so easy to approach new people and talk with other travelers, especially in hostels. Remember these tips:
- Don't be Scared -
It can be daunting meeting a group of new people, but everyone wants to make friends and have a good time. Pushing yourself outside your comfort zone will help you later in life too.
- Be Prepared for Plans to Change -
This one is important. Try not to plan too much as you will make good friends and might decide to go traveling with them to different places that you had planned already. We learnt this the hard way and lost around $3,000 on trips we had already booked because we met another group of people and wanted to travel with them. That leads us to our next tip...
- Don't Sacrifice Your Experiences -
Whilst it's nice to make plans with new friends, don't forget why you wanted to travel in the first place. It's easy to feel pressured into doing something others want to do and missing out yourself. If you paid for a museum ticket but your friends wanted to go to the beach, go to the museum!
Then there's traveling solo (you can still meet people this way too), some people prefer to go it alone. You are on your own schedule, doing what you want, how you want and when you want. Just be sure to plan your activities in advance.
The main tips for booking activities and tours solo are:
- Decide What Your Interests Are -
There's no point booking a whole city pass to access museums or attractions when you only want to enjoy the views from the outside, or just want to explore the parks.
- Research it Online -
If you want to purchase tickets for something research it online (or ask for our help). It can be cheaper to book activities and tours on the day, at the location. But that is also dependent on what it is, we tried that with the Catacombs, Paris and had to wait in line for 4 hours.
- Make a Plan -
Dependent on the time you have in a location, make a plan. That doesn't mean you should plan every minute of your trip, you should still leave time to walk away from the tourist areas and explore yourself, that's the only way discover hidden gems. If you have a day to see a city then plan your top 5 tours/sights and work out which ones you have time for.
