Tour traveling has gotten a bad rep by many people, which I think is very unfair. Of course there are some really bad tours out there that are either total rip-offs or don’t give you an authentic experience, but that doesn’t mean they’re all the same.
There are some tours that really go out of their way to show you a different world from what you know, and to give you opportunities that would be close to impossible to get on your own.
Here are some dream tours that I would LOVE to experience…
Unique Tours From Around The World
Burma By Bike
Nathan used to dream of biking across Europe, and while a whole continent might be a bit much for me, biking through a country is something I would be more than willing to try – so when I read about this biking tour in Burma it sounded absolutely perfect.
Biking is a way of life in Burma, and it’s one of the best ways to truly get to experience and appreciate the country’s nature on the countryside and meet the people.
I can only imagine how cool it would be to bike through this country which is full of hillside temples and rural ancient villages, meeting locals working with traditional crafting and silk weaving along the way.
Tour Company: Butterfield & Robinson – ”Myanmar Biking” / Price: 9 days $7,495
Bush Camping And Voodoo In Ghana
Africa is such a fascinating continent, and when we started looking into going there we didn’t know where to begin, there are just so many awesome places to visit.
Bush Camping And Voodoo In GhanaWhile looking around I found this cool tour in Ghana which takes you to remote regions of the country where you get to visit a witchcraft oracle, meet the Lobi people and do some bush camping.
It seems like a great fun tour where you get to experience a completely different culture – plus, it’s pretty good value 😉
Tour Company: GAdventures, ”Ghana Untouched” / Price:13 days $3,094
Trekking In Georgia’s Mountains Of Poetry
Both Nathan and I are incredibly curious about the republic of Georgia, as it seems so unique and beautiful.
So when I found this tour, where you hike through the country’s mountain regions, I was sold: you stay with locals, walk through small alpine villages, diverse nature and UNESCO heritage sites.
It seems like a lovely and intimate tour where you get to meet the people and tribes of the country and get to see a great deal of the beautiful nature.
Tour Company: Explorers’ Corner / Price:13 days $3,690
Wild Paradise In Papua New Guinea
I can’t think of any better adventure than traveling to the islands of Papua New Guinea, a country which is a world away from ours, a country which has remained largely untouched, a place where over 860 different languages are spoken.
On this tour you not only get to walk through through the Tari rain forest full of exotic birds, but you get to meet the traditional Huli people, a tribe which was unknown to the outside world until 1935, a people who today are known for their rather strange-looking wigs.
You’ll need to find a good coupon code for this tour though, because it’s not cheap!
Tour Company: Natural Habitat Adventures,”Wild Papua New Guinea” / Price: 11 days $9,495
Mongolia In The Footsteps Of The Nomad
Mongolia is a country I’m longing to visit, and I would love to take this tour where you go trekking among remote Khotont and Kazakh nomads in the Harhiraa and Tsaast Uul mountains of western Mongolia.
There would be no better way to see the ”Wild West” of Mongolia with its gorges and glacier peaks than this.
World Expeditions, ”Mongolia in the footsteps of the Nomad” / Price: 18 days, $4,269
I think these tours would be an experience of a lifetime, but as you can see most of them come at a pretty high price – you can find tours4fun coupon codes here to get a cheaper deal.
