WHY INDEPENDENT TOURS
Want to travel the world, but have no idea how to start? Let us build your dream Itineary. Pick up any of our tours and add more days, new destinations, additional sightseeing activities or let's start from a scratch and we tailor make your custom trip from the details you provide.
WHAT'S INDEPENDENT TOUR?
If you like to have your own room at design 4-5* stars hotels, travel by train and/or plane instead of wasting time in the bus, have some free time when you are travelling, dine in local restaurants and enjoy great value when it comes to the cost of your trip, then an independent vacation may be the perfect style of travel for you!
We arrange all of your hotel accommodations and transportation on an independent package (like an escorted tour), but there are some differences.
On an Independent trip, you will not be part of a group and you will have more freedom to spend your days exactly how you were dreaming about. You will meet a "local guide" and join a small group of other travellers in each of the cities you visit for sightseeing activities and city tours. The “guide” is a local so don’t hesitate to ask him about all the “insider’s” places and anything you want to know.
Each tour includes a great number of sightseeing tours. It's not just a walking or orientation tour, like on escorted tours, but you will visit all major landmarks and monuments of the destination, learn about the area’s cultural heritage, and all the skip-the-line entrance tickets are already included in the tour cost.
The meeting points are located near the visited attractions, for eg Eiffel Tower, Louvre, etc. On some sightseeing tours, your guide will pick you up from the hotels.
We offer standard room accommodation at comfortable centrally located 4-5* star hotels from top hotel brands like Hilton, Marriott, Novotel, Sofitel, Mercure, and Radisson hotels, as well as small boutique hotels. Our hotels are located close to the major attractions and train stations to make it fast and easy to find your way around. We offer hotel upgrades at any destination and if you were dreaming of a luxury 5-star hotel with an Eiffel Tower view, we will make it happen.
Only breakfasts are included on our trips, allowing you to choose restaurants that best suit your tastes and budget. Though we will send you some tips on where to try the best local foods and drinks. We know that they are the best because we have been to each and every place we recommend!
On Independent tours, we always select the fastest routes for transportation. Therefore, you will travel by trains and planes, rather than spending 6-8 hours traveling by bus like on escorted tours. To make your travel smooth and easy, we select the hotels close to the train stations, so it's either a short 10 mins walk to the hotel or a short ride by taxi. Upon request, we can add transfers between the hotels and train stations. Airport transfers on tours are already included.
CUSTOMIZE YOUR TRIP
On Independent adventures, we provide you with any additional service you possibly could want. If you need a private transfer from the airport to the hotel, tickets to museums, theatres or concerts, a day trip to the best wineries in Tuscany in Italy or a boat trip to Whitsundays in Australia or maybe spend a few more days in Paris, we are here to make it happen! That's the beauty of independent adventures - your trip can be perfectly tailored to your needs.
If you’d like to travel with your family and friends or organize a wedding abroad, our trips are also available as private group departures. Your private guide will meet you at the hotels and take on exciting sightseeing tours you can enjoy with your loved ones. We can customize the itinerary by adding additional destinations, cities, sightseeing, or whatever you want it to be! These come with all the excitement and inclusions of a regular trip, but we can tweak and adjust the details until they fit you just right.
