Wouldn't you want a more "local" experience?
We realize that some people prefer to be with a group of other people for the whole trip so that they can make new friends (though sometimes they get annoyed by "problem" travelers in the group). And sometimes if you are with a group, you can get a special meal or unique part of a day tour included. But we know one operator that gets good rates for hotels and lodges, but that is because they are not in good locations. Another offers highly-acclaimed tours, but is now lending it's name to another series of tours that are operated by another company that does not offer the same amenities or attention to details.
So it is good to be aware of some of these behind-the-scenes details. If you really want to go with a group of other people on a multi-day tour, let us know and we will help you to find what will suit you best.
Or, if you already have a group of people who want to travel together, we can put together a group itinerary just for you, using the type of hotels you want to use and all of the services you would like to have included, including special meals or day tours. We have done that for family groups, school groups, affinity groups, cruise groups and incentive groups.
