Adventure tours

Active trips for small groups of 10–22 travelers

Small group adventure travel

Love to travel with an open mind, a good pair of walking shoes, and an interest in going off the beaten path? Our small group adventure trips are for you. With small groups of 10–22 travelers, our Adventure Tours give you an in-depth look at your destination through culturally immersive, active travel experiences. You’ll find yourself learning and trying new things, from what you do (hands-on activities) to where you’ll go (roads less traveled) to how you get around (think outside the bus).

Adventure travel experiences

Stroll high above the sea

Once in a lifetime trip
By 1st-time traveler June on 3/6/2020
The folks at Go Ahead tours are amazing, they take care of their guests. I cannot say enough of the tour director Alonzo he is extremely knowledgeable and patient. Harold the bus driver is an experience and skillful driver. Costa Rica with Go Ahead tours must be an item on ones bucket list.

By first-time traveler Joyce on 11/2/2019
Fantastic tour to an incredible country—days were packed with new and exciting sites and experiences. Could have spent twice as long—or 10 times as long!—in the medinas! So much to see. Tour was extremely well organized. Loved every minute.

Adventure travel FAQ

What makes adventure travel special?

Small groups experiencing big things is our take on adventure travel. Each of our Adventure Tours features a group size of 10–22 travelers, the ideal size for making connections with each other, your Tour Director, local guides, and the communities you’ll visit.

Discovering ancient ruins in the Andes, tasting local specialties during market visits, riding a rickshaw through the bustling cities of Asia, and walking along scenic coastlines of Europe are just a few of the types of experiences you may have on these active tours, These trips are a great fit for travelers of all ages who are looking to get out and explore the world on active vacations.

What can I expect on adventure trips?

The short answer: Expect to cross bucket list adventures off your list!

The longer one: Another way to think about our small group adventure trips is as more active vacations. You can expect to see a mix of historic cities and smaller towns while traveling, and going off the beaten path. These are more active tours, which means you’ll be on your feet each day, sometimes for several hours at a time. You can find detailed information about the pace and included activities for these active vacations on each trip’s itinerary page.
