It is no secret that small group travel is becoming all the rage and we. are. here. for. it. Small group travel is perfect for anyone who wants to save money, while also having a once in a lifetime adventure. All of the money you save on airfare, hotels, and transportation can be used on the truly important things like hiking Rainbow Mountain in Peru or diving with great white sharks in South Africa.]


We partnered with Indus Travels (leader for group tours) to tell you the top 5 benefits of small group travel. 


1. Personalized Trips

Indus Travels Unbundled tours give you the ability to reap the monetary benefits of group travel (i.e. lowered group prices and a local guide), while also allowing you to adapt your trip to meet your wants and needs. Every tour will provide a detailed itinerary that includes free time and potentially free days. You can customize your trip by choosing which optional tours you want to add to your itinerary, so you can explore the sights that really excite you. That is the beauty of Indus Travels: you have freedom. You don’t have to be with your tour group for every activity. Basically… when you travel with a small group you have hotel accommodations, transportation, some meals and tours provided, while also having the ability to explore the destination and add more excursions and activities of your choice! It is the best of both worlds. 


2. Safety in Numbers

Everyone wants to travel alone… until they read the news. Small group travel allows you to experience the same adventures without danger. Tourists can be targeted by pickpockets or scammers, but when traveling with a group, you will have an experienced tour guide by your side every step of the way to help you. They can answer any question or assist with any problem you may have.


3. Immersing in the Culture

Traveling in a group allows travelers to experience their destination in ways they couldn’t if traveling solo. You get access to an experienced tour guide with insider tips. Every Indus trip is designed with both Professional Travel Planners and local suppliers, so you are getting a one-of-a-kind itinerary at a fair price. Some people shy away from group travel because they picture waiting an hour for everyone to get off the bus, but when traveling with Indus you will have max 22 people in your travel party. That gives the group flexibility in transportation, lodging, and food. For example, in a smaller group, eat at local restaurants as opposed to large touristy chains. 


4. Meeting New People

Traveling in a small group allows you to meet like-minded people. It is always more enjoyable to see new sights and experience new cultures when you have people surrounding you. With a small tour group you know you’ll have the opportunity to create personal relationships with people and that’s priceless. Not only will you see new cities, but you can also create life-long friendships. 


5. Less Stress

Everyone and their mother knows how stressful traveling can be. Between delayed flights, foreign currencies, and new languages, it is easy to get overwhelmed. When you travel with a small group you don’t have to worry about any of those issues. If you have any problems during your trip, Indus Travels provides you with emergency contacts that are available 24/7. They take care of everything for you. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy your adventures.


Next time you are planning an adventure, consider doing a group tour. And when you do, be sure to check out Indus Travels. They specialize in small group tours and have tours to over 50 destinations worldwide. A.K.A they have a tour for everyone. 

Get excited, your life-changing trip is a click away.
