Touring - the ultimate package holiday!
Bored of the beach???
Concerned about the rising costs of living???
The massive growth of this travel sector shows that people are bored of beaches and all-inclusive's – that’s a break, not a holiday. The pandemic also has made people “rethink travel” so they want more experiential trips. From Antarctica to Italy to Kilimanjaro, a tour is the ultimate package holiday, a real holiday that you can get passionate about
So how about an 'Organised Adventure'? It’s a bit of an oxymoron, how can an adventure be organised? Your preconceptions will be blown out of the water. This is not about coach loads of tourists being herded from 1 photo opportunity to the next. Nor is it about 18-30's going wild. There is a tour out there for everyone, you just need to find the right tour. There is a very diverse offering – including tailor-made itineraries, group trips, family tours, cruises, self-guided holidays, private trips, small groups and more
Organised adventures offer a range of benefits, such as seamless logistics, the personal touch of a guide and the chance for strangers to become friends. It is important to note that not every hour of your day is scheduled and timetabled - there is plenty of free time to explore and make the holiday your own... Touring and adventure trips help my clients deal with ‘decision fatigue’. For example, a colleague of mine took a cycling tour of the Dolomites, which was adventurous, but the logistics, routes, travel and accommodation were all sorted in advance, so he could just enjoy the holiday rather than make lots of choices.
Touring and adventure holidays represent excellent value for money compared to traditional packages. The number of excursions and inclusions is fantastic.
But it's not about being cheap, it’s about value for money. If you don’t have so much disposable income but want something special, we can do that. Lots of tours are stripped back so travellers can grab a deal and help keep costs down, but there are tours and adventures to suit every budget - from basic to premium luxury.
As an independent travel agent, I really get to know my customers' likes and dislikes so I am ideally placed to find the perfect tour for you, either solo or with friends and family. The high number of repeat bookings with World Class Adventures is a testament to the trust my clients have in me, and I'm very proud of this.
The adventure & touring sector is also actively leading the way in making the post-pandemic recovery of the travel industry to be more sustainable. Tours can also boost the economies of developing nations, and support local cultures, communities and the countryside. Our goal as an industry should be to rebuild travel in a better way, by getting more people out of the main tourist hubs to experience themselves and the planet more meaningfully and sustainably through organised adventures.
Here at World Class Adventures, I strive to use ethical operators who support the local communities you visit, and carbon offset every flight I sell. So when you travel with us, you’re giving back as much as you take away.
