What going guided’s all about

If you haven’t heard of going guided or don’t know much about it, you’re not alone—but you are missing out! Here’s the 4-1-1, including perks you won’t always enjoy when you travel on your own.


Done-for-you planning

When you travel with us, you won’t have to find just-right flights, figure out where to stay and eat, or worry about how to get from one place to the next. We’ll do it all for you.


Priority admission

Traveling is about soaking in new experiences, not standing in long lines. Whenever possible, we’ll expedite your entrance to top cultural sites so you can get straight to the good stuff.


Insider access

We’ll introduce you to locals where they live and work (think: private homes, vineyards, and farms). You’ll try your hand at their trades, from pasta making to pineapple picking.


Forever connections

On tour, you’ll bond with other culturally curious travelers over wow-worthy moments, and you’ll head home with a bunch of new, adventurous friends.

Watch: what it’s like
to go guided

Our only responsibility is to be on time. Everything else is taken care of for us. And that makes the tour enjoyable because there’s no stress of having to do all the planning.”


—Traveler Karen

Time well spent on tour

We don’t just make traveling easy—we give you time and tools to make any trip your own



Balanced itineraries

For a just-right mix of shared experiences and on-your-own exploring, we include guided tours, group meals, optional excursions, and plenty of free time on every single trip.




Immersive moments

Sure, your Tour Director and local guides will show you lots of highlights. But they’ll also take you beyond the beaten path for hands-on experiences you can’t whip up on your own.




Expert insights

Tour Directors are eager to help travelers make the most of every trip. Looking for the best baguette in Paris, or a spot to spend free time in Lima? Ask away (and prepare to be impressed).


I was initially concerned about traveling with a group. However, I was pleasantly surprised! We were all interested in learning about Italy. It was hard saying goodbye at the end of the trip. Such wonderful memories!”


—Traveler Sarah


World travel made easy.

There’s no denying it. For a while now, traveling has been tricky. The good news? When you book a guided tour with Go Ahead, you can relax and leave the nitty-gritty details up to us.

Stress-free travel prep

We monitor global travel guidelines 24/7. That way, we can let you know what’s required to get you where you’re going, and you can focus on what you want to do when you get there.

Policies designed for real life

As travelers ourselves, we understand the value of fair, flexible policies that put people first—no matter what’s happening in the world. We constantly review and update our own policies to ensure they do exactly that.

Safety first—and always

We vet hotels, restaurants, and other travel partners so that our guided tours meet our (and your) uncompromising safety and hygiene standards.

Extra protection at no extra cost

We protect every traveler on every tour with our industry-leading EF COVID Care Promise. It covers hotel nights, meals, and more should you need to quarantine on tour—all at no extra cost to you.



Benefits of going guided vs. going on your own

Going guided vs independent travel



With all the craziness that COVID brought to international travel, EF and our tour guide, Barbara, were truly so organized. If we had tried to do everything ourselves, there is no way we would have seen all that we did, with such seamless access and wonderful tour guides everywhere we went.”
