When it comes to traveling with a tour company, most people think of large coach buses, hundreds of tourists being herded like cattle and a rushed schedule. Those kinds of tours can leave you feeling like you need a vacation from your vacation. A small group tour, on the other hand, combines a quality itinerary where you hit all of the significant spots with plenty of time and freedom, allowing you to adjust your schedule or take an adventure of your own. A small group travel company like Carpe Mundo can provide a more authentic and intimate travel experience where you not only see the major sites, but you can also experience the local culture.
A More Intimate And Interactive Touring Experience
Due to the small size of the travel group, small group travel companies can provide travelers with more personalized attention. A small group travel company can create unique itineraries for each trip that fits the needs and preferences of each customer. If an activity needs to be adjusted or some members of the group want more free time to go off on their own, that can easily be done with a small group tour. Smaller groups also create a more intimate experience that can make you feel like you are traveling with a group of friends, rather than a bunch of strangers.
Many Small Group Travel Companies Practice Ecotourism
Many tourists and travelers are starting to become more aware of and practice ecotourism. Ecotourism encourages responsible travel to natural areas, which involves conserving the environment, as well as sustaining the well-being of the local people. The concept of ecotourism goes beyond just traveling and sightseeing. Ecotourism consists in educating tourists about an area’s culture and way of life, while also positively impacting the local community. Small group travel companies can do a better job of practicing ecotourism because they can use local hotels and services due to their small group sizes. They are also able to reduce more waste and their footprint on the local habitat because they work with manageable group sizes of 8-12 people.
