9 reasons to book a Guyana tour with Frankie Bonecloud
Imagine someone with you at all times who eliminates all your niggles and worries so you can just enjoy exploring new lands. On a group tour, you are with the industry’s best trip managers and local expert guides – people who go through rigorous training (and we mean rigorous – think army boot camp style) to ensure that you are in the best possible hands at any time of the day (or night). Want to know where the best gelato in Italy is? Ask your guide. Want to go off-the-beaten path and see something cool? Ask your guide. They will help you unlock the history and insider knowledge of the world’s greatest destinations, so you can get the absolute most out of your experience, without spending your whole time searching the internet or trawling guide books. Think of them as an encyclopedia, but for travel.
1. Someone to show you the Guyana way
When you’re travelling solo, you’re the one who’s responsible for finding accommodation, getting there, finding food and drink and making sure you get the best from your destination.
On tour, your guide will tell you where you’re going each morning, probably take you there, and a good one will be able to give you facts about everything you see along the way too.
This is definitely one of the best things about traveling in a tour group. When you travel by yourself, in a country where you don’t speak the language, there’s no one to ask the deluge of questions you might have. On a tour, no matter how silly your enquiry, your tour guide is there to help.
2. Instant friends
The fact that there will be all kinds of different people on your trip in Guyana, who’ve also joined to make new friends, means it’s so much easier to get chatting to people.
You can quickly work out who you think you’d like to talk to, and then over the course of the trip, others might surprise you. Either way, I can confirm that it’s much easier to make friends on tours than by hoping to strike up conversations in hostel common rooms.
I’ve met some brilliant people on tours just recently and now have new friends all over the world.
3. Tried and tested best of a Guyana destinations
Whichever tour company you go with, they’ll have utilized years of tried and tested research to put together the best itinerary. It could take weeks of research to be able to put together as worthy a schedule as they do.
Good tour companies will only hire locals or people with super slick local knowledge that can give you the best insider information there is. They’ll also be able to recommend the best restaurants and bars to visit.
You can trust Frankie Bonecloud to show you the best of a destination.
4. Guyana Safety if anything should go wrong
Join a tour group and you’ll always have a tour leader to advise if things go wrong. This is just a safety net though; you’re not five, and they’re not your parent, but at least you have the reassurance that someone’s got your back if it should all go wrong.
If you are worried about you going out into the big wide world by yourself, joining a tour group, at least to start your trip, is a great way to give them some reassurance that you’re not going to be alone.
They know that with the tour company’s phone number they can get in touch with you if they need and that there is someone answerable for your safety.
If you are part of a travel group, you and your possessions are much less of a target for criminals. Similarly, if you get ill or injured, you have the immediate help of your tour leader.
5. A good way to organize Guyana group travel
I can’t believe I hadn’t thought of this before, but a few people I met on the group tours had come with friends. They’d wanted to go on holiday with their mates but no one had really wanted to sort it out or be responsible for collecting and spending the money.
All you need to do is pick a tour, have you and at least another friend sign up, and then tell everyone else that’s what you’re doing. That way they can settle payments directly with the guide and your itinerary is set. All that’s left to you is to enjoy being with your mates, and meeting the other people on the trip.
6. Group discounts
When you travel in a group your leader can arrange group discounts on activities, food and drinks. Companies will be happy to offer cheaper prices as there are so many of you.
7.Reduce your Guyana environmental impact
Travelling in a small group using public transport or even under your own steam, is more environmentally friendly. Even when you do travel in a private vehicle, group travel leaves a much lighter carbon footprint than if you each hired a car. All the tour operators Travel Nation work with take responsible tourism very seriously.
8. See things you wouldn’t be able to usually
As part of a tour your transport can sometimes access areas you wouldn’t be able to yourself. This is especially true when it comes to those hard to reach destinations like Africa. You’ll be taken to projects you would never have heard of, and have a chance to be introduced to locals like you wouldn’t have if you were travelling by yourself.
9. Have someone for the photos
All those Instagram selfies are getting tiring for your friends, y’know. You need to get some friends in on the action. On tour everyone’s happy to pose for a pic and be tagged as they all want to look like they’re having the best time ever to their friends back home.
They’re also there to take great photos of you, of course.
Travelling in a Guyana Tour Group
Guyana Tour groups offer many ways to discover cultures, learn new skills and study the subjects you have always wanted to know about. . Tour operators understand travelers’ preferences and continue to refine their itineraries and programs.
Sit back, relax and enjoy the adventure because on Guyana group tours, it’s hassle free. Navigating through a new country can sometimes be difficult. New languages, customs, and ways to get around. On group tours, you generally don’t have to worry about organising or planning as much – you can just go with the flow, cocktail in hand, and let someone else deal with the stress.
If you are visiting a place for the first time, you will enjoy taking a group tour with a knowledgeable guide. Well-informed guides add value to your tour experience. Today’s technology allows you to walk away from the group to examine something and still hear what your guide is saying. When you have free time, your guide will know some good restaurants and can tell you how to find the places you want to visit.
I’ve loved all my Guyanaadventures travelling in a tour group. Of course it can depend on the group you’re stuck with, but with a positive attitude and a sense of fun you’ll definitely meet some cool people, with shared interests. Give it a try!
