Tours are an exciting way to experience the world. Led by friendly local guides who are as entertaining as they are informative, these fascinating excursions will help to reveal the hidden secrets of the country you’re visiting. They also allow solo travellers the opportunity to meet people who share their passions, whether that’s on a road trip through California or climbing clifftop fortresses in Sri Lanka. So if you’re planning to explore the world solo, here are a few suggestions to inspire you.
