We've all been there: you spend hours and hours pouring over maps and booking websites, planning a special vacation for yourself, and yet when you're on the trip you can't seem to relax as you're always thinking about the next step.
Perhaps traffic makes you late for your activity, or you realize that night's hotel never confirmed your booking. Before you know it, your stress levels are through the roof and you're not enjoying the adventure you're on.
Maybe you didn’t have time to research restaurants before you left, and you end up eating disappointing meal after disappointing meal. Or perhaps things become a little too adventurous... your fuel is running low in the desert, or you've become lost on the trail.
Of course, we know that any trip you take will be unforgettable, but why not make it extra special? When you choose group travel, an extra special experience is exactly what you’ll get.
#1) You Don’t Need to Worry About the Planning
Planning is the first step to a memorable vacation, but it can also be the most time-consuming and stressful. There are so many details to work out: transportation between cities and sights, accommodation that fits your needs, and activities that will delight you and every member of your group.
Many people don’t have time to plan a trip with the same attention to detail as someone who has been in the business for decades. That’s where Active Adventures comes in. We know the countries, cities, cultures, and hidden spots because we’ve been there time and time again! Attention to detail is our job, and one that we’re thrilled to do!
#2) You Connect with Like-Minded Travelers
What better way to connect with like-minded travelers than to join a group trip? As you start out on your journey, you know that you have at least one thing in common with the others – a love of travel. Chances are, though, that you’ve got much more in common than that.
With group travel, you can create shared experiences with family, friends, and of course, your new, soon-to-be friends. You never know who you’ll meet on an Active Adventures group trip, but you can rest assured that the connection will be fast and enduring.
#3) You Get Unforgettable, Unique Experiences
With Active Adventures, you are sure to get a unique experience and a special touch around every corner. Our knowledgeable guides know exactly where to go for that brag-worthy dinner made with local produce or that unknown hiking path with a spectacular view at the end.
You no longer have to rely on the likes of Google and Yelp – we’ve got you covered. When we travel, we like to do it as authentically as possible, meaning you’ll get an experience that many tourists and travelers couldn’t dream of, and meet some friendly locals along the way.
#4) You Recieve the Utmost Care and Attention
From the moment you contact us you'll be speaking with real people who truly care. We are adventurers ourselves and understand you will have questions and concerns ahead of your adventure. Along with our team, our website is full of helpful information on every detail of your vacation, from the day-to-day itinerary to activity level, lodging, and reviews from Guests who have already been on your exact trip.
We stay in touch from our first conversation, to after your trip when we share group photos and special moments, and beyond, so we're here for you every step of the way.
#5) You Can Rely on Our Knowledgeable Guides
Many of our guides have been with us for decades, and all of our guides have extensive knowledge of the regions they share with you. Not only are they trained in the Active Adventures way, they are experts at what they do and where they live.
We pride ourselves on a 6:1 ratio of guests to guides (the lowest in the industry), which means they’re never too busy to make your experience one-of-a-kind. Adventurous and personable, our guides will soon be some of the many wonderful friends you make on your journey.
When you’re on vacation you deserve to relax and have a good time. At Active Adventures, we make sure that happens for you, your companions, and your fellow group adventurers.
