Show notes: Episode 181 of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast
Small Group Travel
I used to be a staunch anti-group-travel kind of gal. I went literally decades without even a thought of joining a group tour! But in Episode 181 of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast I admit the error of my ways and chat with three guests who’ve all had truly unique and wonderful small group travel experiences.
First up, I speak to Suzanne Moore, a local Perth writer who spent a week last year walking the Cape to Cape track in the south-west of my home state of Western Australia. Suzy had some of the same reservations about travelling with a group that I’ve had in the past, but they definitely proved to be unfounded.
My next guest is Louise Southerden and we chat about the benefits of specifically-themed small group tours. This is definitely a case where travelling with a group can actually exceed the experience of independent travel (something I never would have dreamt of conceding a few years back!).
Finally, Andrew Tyree and I chat about what can go wrong with group travel – and he should know, as he leads small group trips across Central and South America. Luckily we also talk about lots of things that go right!
