As an independent adventure travel website, Frontiers of Travel has access to thousands of tours from some of the leading adventure travel companies in the world (see above). We have several unique features to allow you to find the perfect tour for your journey:
- Our tours are carefully organised and mapped according to itinerary and destination, allowing you to search by country, region, city, multi-country trips and travel experience. This means you don't have to trawl through hundreds of tours for popular destinations such as Peru, India, Thailand or Tanzania. Our unique approach to multi-country journeys also allows you to easily find the most appropriate routes and tours for travellers wishing to travel on the great overland journeys through Africa, Asia and Latin America.
- Presenting a succinct summary of the tours for any given destination (including price, duration, tour style and an itinerary map) allows you to easily compare the available options and choose the best tour for you and your budget.
- One simple click will take you to the specific tour page on the travel company's website, allowing you to instantly find more details, check availability and book the tour should you choose. No filling in forms, declaring interest and waiting for responses - just instant access to the tour provider and the relevant data.
In many ways this is simply a matter of personal preference or dependent on the nature and location of your travels. Group tours remove all the hassle of organising transport, accomodation, activities and visiting attractions - with most things organised for you, you can get on with appreciating and experiencing the country you're visiting. This also allows you to pack more into your holiday if time is a limiting factor. For those travelling alone, group tours also allow you to travel with like-minded people and share experiences.
The location and nature of your holiday is also an important factor. Certain regions in the world such as Africa and Central Asia lack the tourist infrastructure found in more popular areas like Latin America and Southeast Asia which makes independent travel there difficult or off-limits to most travellers. Similarly, cruises to places like Antarctica or the Galapagos Islands and many trekking holidays can only be taken as part of an organised tour.
As a general rule, you'll get what you pay for, so read the details of the tour itinerary carefully. Firstly, check whether flights to your destination are included in the price. Then check the style of the tour - for convenience we have classified the tours on our site into three broad categories - Budget, Standard and Comfort. You'll pay more for tours with more high-end accomodation, those which include internal flights rather than overland travel etc. In Africa and other locations overland travel and camping is significantly cheaper than staying in hotels or lodges. It's also important to check what activities and visits are included in the tour itinerary - some may be optional extras which will require you to pay more to partake. Some tours also require compulsory local payments (paid in cash to the tour leader at the beginning of the tour) in addition to the up front cost.
Absolutely. Roughly half the people who join group tours are solo travellers, so it's easy to integrate with the group and meet new and like-minded people. There are no compulsory single supplements on the vast majority of the tours we feature on Frontiers of Travel - you will share rooms with another traveller of the same sex, though many tours offer the option to room on your own at an extra cost.
