Reisestil
Unsere Classic-Trips bieten unverfälschte Reiseerlebnisse in kleinen Gruppen für entdeckungsfreudige Reisende, die die Welt so erfahren möchten, wie sie wirklich ist. Jede Tour bietet dir die perfekte Mischung und verbindet die Highlights des Landes, die man gesehen haben muss, mit spontanen Situationen, gewährt dir die den meisten Reisenden verborgen bleiben.

Kombireise
Diese Reise setzt sich aus verschiedenen Tourabschnitten zusammen, daher kann sich die Gruppenzusammensetzung und Reiseleitung während der Tour ändern. Ihr reist gemeinsam mit Teilnehmern, welche die Reise schon früher begonnen haben bzw. diese im Anschluss an diese Tour noch weiter fortsetzen oder auch nur einen Teilabschnitt dieser Reise gebucht haben.

Lokale Transportmittel
Wie du auf deiner Reise von A nach B kommst, hängt größtenteils von der Wahl der Reiseart und des Reisestils ab. In den meisten Fällen benutzen wir lokale Transportmittel - Busse, Taxis, Nahverkehrszüge und dergleichen - die preiswerteste und abwechslungsreichste Art des Reisens.

Unterkünfte mit Charme
Die Unterkünfte haben wir so ausgewählt, dass sie der lokalen Kultur am ehesten entsprechen. Je nach der Art deiner Reise und dem Reisestil haben wir unterschiedliche Unterkünfte für dich ausgewählt: Mal schläfst du im Hotel in Downtown, mal bei einer Gastfamilie, und mal zeltest du unter dem Sternenhimmel.

Regionale Küche
Einige Mahlzeiten sind im Reisepreis enthalten, aber oft kannst du die lokalen Spezialitäten ganz nach deinem eigenen Geschmack und Budget selbst entdecken (und dein Reiseleiter hat dabei viele Geheimtipps auf Lager). Mahlzeiten können alles umfassen – von einem selbst zubereiteten Festmahl, Abendessen in einem renommierten Restaurant oder allem, was auf dem Markt gut aussieht.

Internationale Gruppen
Unsere Gruppen sind im Durchschnitt mit 12 Personen unterwegs und sind eine bunte Mischung aus Einzelreisenden, Freunden und Paaren jeden Alters aus der ganzen Welt. Du wirst in deiner Gruppe die unterschiedlichsten Persönlichkeiten kennenlernen und auf deiner Reise jede Menge neue interessante Leute treffen. Mit Menschen aus verschiedenen Ländern werden alle unserer Erlebnisreisen auf Englisch durchgeführt.

Erfahrene Reiseleiter
Auf jeder Reise wirst du von einem erfahrenen englischsprechenden Reiseleiter begleitet, der deine Reise mit Einblicken in die Kultur des Gastlandes bereichert und dir oftmals ganz spontan fantastische Erlebnisse ermöglicht, die deine Reise zu einem einzigartigen persönlichen Abenteuer machen. Das wichtigste Anliegen des Reiseleiters: deine Reise zur besten Erfahrung deines Lebens zu machen.

Freiheit & Unabhängigkeit
Mit einem großen, unpersönlichen Reisebus erlebst du garantiert keine wirklichen Abenteuer. Lust auf einen Marktbesuch? Oder lieber die Seele baumeln lassen in einem gemütlichen Café am Straßenrand? Aber gerne! Bei unseren Reisen zeigen wir dir die wichtigsten Sehenswürdigkeiten und lassen dir freie Zeit, um dein ganz eigenes Abenteuer zu erleben.
