GLOBAL VILLAGE TOURS

 

GLOBAL VILLAGE INTERNATIONAL 2017/2018 GROUP TOURS

Our regular group tours to our unique destinations are designed for travellers who like to travel as part of a group but don’t like the idea of a ‘traditional’ group tour. If you are thinking large groups of people being marched on and off buses to see crowded tourist attractions – then you’re thinking wrong. For our destinations like Iran, Cuba and Chernobyl we run 2-3 group tours each year. Our group tours are budget friendly as you can bypass single supplements.

We spend up to a year planning each of our group tours carefully so that the emphasis is always on enjoyment, adventure and the opportunity to get under the skin of a country while travelling around with and meeting a bunch of interesting people We have had young travellers, university lecturers to professional sports stars, musicians, photographers and just about everyone in between travel with us.

On each group tour, we want you to have the most authentic experience possible. All tours are led by our expert guides. Group tours average at around 10 people, capped at a maximum of 25. For some tours such as our Silk Road, Eurasia Adventure or Somaliland and Eritrea Tour you can do a section of the itinerary and join at a designated point on the route. We have detailed this on any relevant itineraries.

All that’s left is for us to take you to countries like North Korea, Cuba, Myanmar or Papua New Guinea for the time of your life at a reasonable price! Take a look at our upcoming group tours for 2017/2018 below.
