Travel group tours usually begin and end in a major metropolis. If it’s a city you’ve always wanted to explore, TravelQuest offers the option of extending your stay on either side of the trip. The price of an extra night or two is minimal compared to the cost of getting to that particular destination, so why not stay a little longer.
Pre- and post-tour extensions are another feature of group travel packages. This is small group travel, includes local drivers and guides, and is pretty much all inclusive. Some examples of pre/post-tour excursions that have been offered by TravelQuest include cruising the Amazon River prior to an eclipse trip, stargazing in Chile’s Atacama Desert after seeing totality, and taking in the Golden Circle in Iceland after viewing the northern lights.
Group tours can’t be all things to all participants, so a free half-day or day is often included as part of the trip. During this free time, participants can relax, explore the area on their own, or take advantage of any optional excursions. Two excellent instances of optional mid-tour outings on previous TravelQuest trips are visiting the South Pole during an Antarctic expedition, and a post-eclipse sunrise balloon flight over the “fairy-tale chimneys” of Cappadocia, Turkey.
