Group Travel and Backpacker Tours
While many people enjoy the freedom of travelling alone it is certainly not for everyone. If the fear of going alone is putting you off the idea of travelling, then a group backpacking tour might be just what you need, at least to get you started. You will join up with a group of other travellers and explore countries or regions with much of the hassle of solo travel taken away from you and a bunch of other people to share your experience with.
Here are some companies that offer group backpacker tours:
They are popular with young travellers who want to hang out with other people for the duration of their trip. If you’re nervous about solo travel then joining one of their shorter tours may help you meet some people who you could continue travelling with once the organised part is over. There is a wide range of options available in Southeast Asia and New Zealand.
