Benefits of summer travel

The list of summer-travel perks is endless. But here are just a few of our favorite reasons to see the world between June and September.


Warm weather for exploring

If you’re planning to travel this summer, you can expect weather in the high 70s. If you plan to visit Iceland, it can get up to 68. And if you’re looking at summer vacations to Australia, where it’s their winter, you can expect it to be between 50 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on where you go.


Activities for every interest

One of the best parts of our summer tour packages is that there’s something for everyone. Whether you’re interested in listening to live music, sipping homemade sangria, walking through nature, or feeling nautical on the sea, our summer trips have it all.


More daylight for sightseeing

The sun rises earlier and sets later in the summer, which means longer days for you to explore. With more free time, you’ll truly make the most of your trip.

It also means spending more time outside, so you can see wildlife at Denali National Park, walk along the cliffs of Moher in Ireland, or snorkel with sea turtles in the Galápagos.


It’s the off-season for many countries

Scandinavia, Iceland, and Australia & New Zealand are often considered winter travel destinations. But in the summer, they’re even more special. Summer vacations to more traditional winter destinations mean fewer crowds, lower prices, and more unique experiences.

Simon Jordan was the best tour guide you could ask for. He was knowledgeable, fun , friendly and capable of handling any problem that pops up. I highly recommend him and the London/Paris/Rome trip. I will travel with EF Go Ahead Tours again and request Simon as my guide ! He’s the best ..
