George's Specials


Independent Explorers

Independent Explorer Tours and Packages are the competitive priced option for people who want to explore on a self guided trip. No group, no tour guide leading you about, but a pre-planned and pre-paid itinerary that takes the guess work and worry out of winging it totally on your own.

I really like group tours. They are as much social experiences as travel experiences. But I also like to travel without a group and I've found these types of trips to be extremely satisfying as a traveler. I have often found that they are actually less expensive than group tours, primarily because the hotel choices are more varied. Group tours need uniformity and large capacity and that takes a lot of hotels off the table. So what are these tours like?

These tours are sometimes called FIT or fully independent tours, but the idea is the same. Packages are made so that you can visit a destination, travel around, take some locally guided tours, stay in a variety of accommodations and have a certain number of pre-paid inclusions like your transfers, rail or bus tickets, attractions, hotel and meals. They are usually set up in a day by day itinerary and usually they are coordinated locally by a person or company that works with the travel trade to manage all these arrangements.

Another advantage to these trips is that you can usually modify them to time frame. So, if we find a really great airfare you want to use, I can get a tour built around your flight dates.

These tours are guaranteed to operate with just 2 people, so you do not have to worry about cancelling your trip because there was a minimum of 10 or 20 people for the group.

Cost? I've made up some sample tours to give you the idea of what pricing is like. Check the list below to see some examples of tours based on moderate hotels. If you shop around, you'll see these are very attractive prices
