Yes, we are advocates for solo travel. We believe solo travel gives you the opportunity to become an independent and confident human being. It allows you to connect with yourself, experience, and witness new ways of life, cultures, and diversities. But we know that solo travel is not always rainbows and unicorns. It also has its challenges and difficulties. If you try group travel as a solo traveler, you can minimize the problems and struggles you face when you travel alone.
Spending hours creating the perfect itinerary for your next trip. Making sure you pack light enough to make it easier running from one train platform to another. Asking strangers to take your photos in the middle of Sahara because you want your friends to see what kind of an adventurous traveler you are.
Despite all the benefits of solo traveling, sometimes it can be challenging to deal with all these on your own. This is when group travel comes in handy. This post will outline some of the struggles that come with solo traveling and help you consider group travel and tell you why it makes life easier.
Expanding Your Circle
We all know that making friends is not easy when you have a full-time job. Also, when you travel solo, it is possible that you have safety concerns while approaching people.
Group travel helps you meet interesting people from all over the world without having to worry about your safety. Moreover, being part of a group is going to help you go out of your comfort zone and try out new things.
Some group tours may bring people with different interests and backgrounds together. Imagine traveling solo in a group tour consisting of families with little kids and middle-aged couples . In such a group tour, it becomes difficult to expand your circle of friends.
However, TripLegend’s group tours aim to bring young professionals with similar backgrounds together. With TripLegend, travelers will still experience the authentic feeling of traveling solo but also will be able to create new, life-long friendships.
Safety in Group Travel
Safety is one of the common concerns of all solo travelers in the world. Drinking alone at a bar, going to a club, or exploring far-off corners of the world is not an option for many solo travelers.
But group travel can solve this problem. In a group tour, travelers get to enjoy off the beaten path destinations without any safety concerns.
Local Tour Guides
A guide in a group tour is there to show, tell, and explain travelers everything about the destination.
The local tour guides speak the language and know the destination like the back of their hands. They make sure every little detail in the trip runs smoothly and safely. They help you have the most out of your travel destination.
As TripLegend, we provide an expert local guide for our travelers and support local businesses in each destination we have on our TripLegend map. By keeping things local, we make sure our travelers feel the real atmosphere of their destination. By cooperating with local communities and businesses, we ensure that our travelers’ money stays in the country and is not spent on big international companies.
