Young travelers 18-30s enjoying fun guided tour in Europe

18-30's Travel - Best Tours & Trips

Young adult travelers are often -- though certainly not always -- on the lookout for budget trips. Many seek active, outdoorsy adventures such as hiking or biking tours, trekking and camping expeditions, backpacking trips, off-the-beaten-path locations, and a variety of learning tours, such as cooking classes in Turkey or Scuba lessons in the South Pacific. All these options and more are offered by today's tour operators. And if you want to put together a custom itinerary for yourself and your friends, just ask -- many operators will be happy to do that, too.

I had a lot of fun and learned a lot on Mysteries of India with G Adentures-National Geographic.
India is not an easy countriy to visit for the first timer, so an organized tour is the way to go.
Our guide (CEO), Manu Rao, was excellent--he is very personable, knows his country exteremly well, and will go the extra mile to make sure his group is informed and comfortable.
This trip focusses on Rajasthan, a large state, and covers a lot of territory.
Our group consisted of 6 travellers-two Canadians, two Australian, and two Americans.
I travelled as a single male traveller (wife could not join me).
Everybody was in their 50s and 60s, all reasonably energetic.
A would go on a similar G Adventures tour as soon as time and budget permit.

Company agent originally contacted me on September 12, 2018 regarding an opening spot for a Oaxaca, MX Day of the Dead Tour from October 28 thru November 3, 2018. I was asked to pay $1,379 over phone which I did on September 13, 2018. At this point the customer representative DID NOT advise me that trip was non-refundable and non-transferable. Due to work conflicts I am unable to complete this trip. I have contacted Claire Nicholls on several occasions regarding possible refund or transferability to another male passenger. She has remained adamant that the trip is non-refundable, that a $250 deposit may be applied for another one of the company's trip, may be donated to their own charity organization Planeterra or I may transfer only $250 for another passenger to use. I have informed Nicholls that their website policies DO NOT state that trip is NOT transferable. October 2018

So far, our experience has not been great.
We booked, everyone was fabulous, we were excited! I was offered an additional $100 off of my trip and $45 off the price of private rooming, along with my boyfriends. Obviously an incentive to get us to book. Neither discounts were ever taken off the bill, even after sending in emails. Eventually I sent screenshots of what other reps had said and had the $45 taken off, but they refuse to honor the other discount. Oh well, only $200.
We are supposed to be leaving in January. They recently emailed and said that due to low enrollment, they are changing the dates to combine us with another group. Not only did I get this time off work, but the second date is after my semester already starts. Im not sure what Ill do for school, and no one at EF seems to care how this affects us. We selected a specific date? How can you just go and change it? Oh well, we will have to make it work.
Finally, the cherry on the cake here, we are told that our private room isn't a guarantee and we wont necessarily get it if we change dates. So the upgrade we already paid $700 for isn't necessarily available. No one ever mentioned it being questionable, they were in such a rush to take our money they didn't even feel the need to let us know. I told them that the private rooming is make-or-break for us, and Ive been waiting on a reply for days.
So far, the anxiety I feel over losing out on 3k is not worth the convenience of the monthly payments. Id highly recommend booking elsewhere unless you are unemployed and not a student.

I can’t say enough good things about the National Geographic Moroccan Journeys tour! I’ll get to the parts everyone cares about. Lodging was great and better than expected, the SMALL SIZE of the tour was perfect. Our tour was limited to 12 and trust me.. you want that. Other tours had upwards of 30-40 people and a large bus. 12 was perfect because we got to know our tour mates pretty well and it had such. Good vibe. The tour: our guide, Aziz was fantastic and I could not have asked for a more knowledgeable expert in both the locations we went to but also Moroccan culture. We also had local guides in addition to our main guide Aziz and they were just as informative and interesting.

I can’t recommend this tour enough. It was just overall such an incredible experience.! The food was great everywhere and the accomodatiins were definitely more upscale than I thought we would have. Also the desert accommodations FEEL like authentic Moroccan kasbah style hotel and it was perfect for for the Saharan experience. My only change I’d make was that we didn’t hve much time to ride camels when the option presented itself. But definitely was a option if anyone wanted to take it. Also your guide is super useful in helping you negotiate deals in the Medina. If you want pottery though, buy it at the first stop in Fez, the pottery coop that you tour- definitely the best variety and highest quality.

This was my first tour so if you have never taken a tour and are wondering if you would like it I’d say just make sure it’s a smaller size tour like this one from G adventures. The National Geographic branding gave me extra confidence that it would be interesting and informative. Thanks guys!

This is a trip created just for city slickers who only travel with a rolling suitcase...others stay away. By Far it was the biggest money and time waste in my traveling experiences. This is supposed to be Alaska, the wild, but this trip has very little to none of it. Unless your idea of an adventure is making your provided "lunch sandwiches" in a parking lot of a supermarket. Accommodations also stunk for such a city slicker trip. Make sure you bring a friend or two who are into hiking and exploring, otherwise keep your fingers crossed that there is someone on the trip to accompany you because even the guide won't do it. But if you have friends, you don't need gadventures or any other company to do this. Guide/driver/optionals booking/restaurant reservation person, who happens to be the same person, is too busy booking flight seeing tours, ziplining, etc for all the members of the group. In conclusion, I won't recommend this trip to anyone other that those who want to travel with a rolling suitcase. Read more

18-30's Travel Tours and Travel Guide


18-30's Travel Attractions & Landmarks Guide

Young adult travelers are often -- though certainly not always -- on the lookout for budget trips. Many seek active, outdoorsy adventures such as hiking or cycling tours, trekking and camping expeditions, backpacking trips, off-the-beaten-path locations, and a variety of learning tours, such as cooking classes in Turkey or scuba lessons in the South Pacific. All these options and more are offered by today's tour operators. And if you want to put together a custom itinerary for yourself and your friends, just ask -- many operators will be happy to do that, too. 

Take the Planning Out

The 18-30 group is one of the busiest by far; busy with school, work, kids, and life in general. Pre-planned trips save you time by having a set itinerary so you don't have something else on your plate. You can search by the number of days you have available, where you want to go, or what type of trip you want to go on. You can guarantee that you will see plenty of wildlife and exotic locations.

Productive Itineraries

If this is one of your only vacations of the year, you’ll want to see as much as you can. These trips have multiple activities everyday to make sure you see the most of each area visited. Choose activities based on your interests. Short on time? There are trips you can do in less than a week for a quick vacation. Whether you have a week or a month, your trip will be unforgettable.

Budget Trips

These trips are catered to the young traveler's budget. Traveling alone can be very expensive, and is not as affordable if you are in or just out of college. No need to worry about booking expensive taxis or hotels for your vacation. Your trip will put together the most affordable lodging and transportation for you to get the most out of your money.

Exploring New Territories

More and more young people are venturing out of their comfort zones and going to less well known countries. The convenience of a pre-planned group trip means you don't have to worry about getting from A to B and deal with transportation. You can focus all your energy on taking breathtaking pictures as you see foreign lands.
