Freedom & Flexibility

One of the best bits about travelling is being spontaneous! The beauty of a flexible tour is, you have the ultimate freedom to hop on and off when you want. If you unexpectedly discover your dream destination on your tour route, you can just jump off the bus and spend longer exploring.

Have fun with new friends

A flexible tour offers the ideal opportunity to meet new people and forge travelling friendships. Each time you hop back on the bus you’ll connect with new travel buddies. If you make new friends and they want you to hop off and spend extra days with them, no problem! You can hang out for as long as you like and then re-join the bus when you’re ready.

All the benefits of a tour

Just because you can enjoy more flexibility, doesn’t mean you miss out on the perks of touring. You’ll still have an expert guide to show you the ropes when you’re on board the bus. Your guide can also recommend great places to stay along the way, and let you in on all the secret locations other travellers might be missing. Even if you choose to hop off for independent travel time, you’ll have your guide’s top tips to give you a head start!
