Backpacker tours are brilliant for two main reasons. Firstly, you can be guaranteed to experience the absolute highlights of any given destination. Secondly, tours are a perfect way to meet and interact with other travellers, and indeed locals.
A gap year without some sort of tour would be like a backpack without straps: sort of functional, but ultimately pretty pointless. We have an enormous selection of tours covering every corner of the planet, from the rainforests of South America to the deserts of Australia to the paradise beaches of South East Asia.
Don't make the mistake of thinking a gap year tour takes away your experience of indpendent travel, rather, it will only serve to complement that experience.
