Our first trip to Europe was fantastic thanks to Go Ahead tours taking care of all the details. We never would have been able to see and do so much in our own. Susie our guide was great and all the people in the group were really nice and fun. It was go,go,go and exhausting but worth all the great memories!

    About Go Ahead Tours

    Go Ahead Tours offers guided group tours around the world and on all seven continents. With 25 years of experience, they've built up an impressive array of itineraries and guides. 

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Groups never number more than 35 and may be as few as 14. Go Ahead calls this their 'Right Size Advantage.' A number of specialty trips include food and wine tours, religious heritage tours, family tours, nature & wildlife tours, and walking tours. They will also take you to special events such as Oktoberfest in Germany, Carnival in Venice, or New England fall foliage tours. 

    As part of EF, Education First, Go Ahead tours specialize in cultural immersion and making connections, whether with locals or other tour members. 

    Go Ahead Tours also promises value: if you can find a similar tour at a cheaper price, they'll match it, making it a good choice for budget travelers.  

    Who Travels With Them?

    Go Ahead is based in the US, and thus attracts mostly American travelers to their trips. Their age range is varied, but most travelers tend to be middle aged.  

    Where Do They Operate?

    Go Ahead offers a wide array of trips to over 100 countries on all 7 continents. Popular destinations include Italy, France, and the United Kingdom. They also offer trips to South America, Asia, and Africa.  

    Why Travel With Them?

    Go Ahead is backed by EF, one of the largest travel companies in the US, so has extensive resources at hand when creating their itineraries. They also use a combination of a 'western' tour director plus a selection of local guides, giving the traveler a glimpse into local life while still maintaining quality and comfort. 

    About Elite Luxury Kenya

    Also called “Kenya Safaris” this company is very locally minded, offering boutique travel experiences including honeymoon, and fully customized travel.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Elite Luxury Kenya provides a travel experience in Kenya that will introduce travelers to another side of the African safari. No frills, yet comfortable, the travel options seem to distinctly be designed to showcase traveling beyond the safari. Though this is not to say safari’s are not a focus. Rather for them, a safari holiday with them means you’ll get a very diverse tour in terms of activities, excursions, and accommodations.

    Who Travels With Them?

    Those seeking an affordable Kenya, Tanzania, and / or Uganda experience. Their tours are private and completely customizable. As a smaller company travelers may find that accommodations are less luxury in feel than an established luxury safari brand, however you will be very comfortable and well taken care of. And if local touches are important to you, these will make your trip especially enjoyable.

    Where Do They Operate?

    Despite what the name suggests, Elite Luxury Kenya also provides tours in Tanzania and Uganda. Part of their mission is to introduce travelers to Kenya and these other destinations beyond the typical safari. To that end you may enjoy a beach holiday, gorilla trek, or hike up Mount Kenya.

    Why Travel With Them?

    Kenya based and small, traveling with them is a way to support local business and in return have a fully local experience. You will get a sense of the “real” Kenya, while also experiencing all the classic safari moments.

    Tours are led by local knowledgeable guides, and your trip is designed by experts for a personalized touch - this helps ensure your trip to Kenya fulfills everything you want to see.
