The benefits of an escorted tour

The benefits of an escorted tour
Explore an entire country, enjoy the local culture and experience the sights, sounds and colour of some of the World’s most wondrous places and cities through the eyes of a local expert with an escorted group tour. 
If you want to explore the World, then an escorted tour with a group of like-minded travelers can often be the best way to do it, but just because you are travelling as part of a group it doesn’t mean you need to be in each other’s pockets day. You can tailor the tour to suit your needs, your requirements and your desires as escorted tour operators like Collette continue to innovate the tours on offer and provide variety and flexibility on each destinations itinerary to meet your demands and needs as an individual traveler.
Collette recognise that customers value the enriching experience they get when travelling with other people but also understand that each customer is different and have different expectations and want different experiences to make the most of their holiday. 
A tailor-made holiday
Long gone are the days when the itinerary was set in stone for everyone on the tour. All customers are individual so Collette have introduced much more choice for how each traveler can spent their time whilst on tour.
You can tailor your holiday however you like. Collette want to ensure customers get great value for money so all the main attractions, national parks and fees are always included in the price but you can choose to experience them in different ways to make the tour your own. For example on the Costa Rica tour, you can choose to enjoy Arenal Volcano National Park either on a thrill-seeking zip-lining experience through the rain forest or for a more laid back experience you can traverse the volcano’s former lava fields. Both these options are included in the tour price but you can choose how to enjoy the destination. This is just one of many choice-on-tour options Collette have introduced to make each tour a more unique and tailor-made experience for you.  
Food for thought
Enjoying new culinary experiences in new countries with new people is an important part of the tour for so many travelers. Food is a wonderful way to experience new cultures, exciting the senses and taste buds along the way. Adding authentic culinary opportunities to the tours take you deeper into the destination, introducing you to local traditions where you can share experiences with those who call the destination home. Gone are the days of group breakfast, lunches and dinners where you are all expected to eat at the same time, from the same menu with the same group of people.
Pace and Size
Continuing on the tailor-made concept, you can choose the pace of your tour with varoius tour pace levels to choose from, ranging from leisurely paced tours which involve minimal physical activity to a very active tour pace which requires travelers to be physically fit to fully enjoy all of the experiences.
You can also choose from larger group tours to much smaller, intimate travel experiences to fit with what you feel most comfortable with. There is even the option to arrange a private departure which is tailored all around you.
Escorted tours have changed dramatically over the past few years. The framework for tours are provided so you have the security benefits and the knowledge of expert guides for each destination as part of an escorted group tour - but you can then tailor make the holiday to suit your own preferences and create your very own itinerary - choosing the tour pace and group size thats right for you.
