Taking a backpacker tour as part of your gap year is a great idea, even for independent travellers. Organised tours take away all the stressful bits about travelling, like finding somewhere to sleep and eat, leaving you to just soak up the fun parts.
Backpacker tours also introduce you to areas and local people you almost certainly wouldn't have met otherwise. And more importantly than all that, you can share your amazing experiences with other likeminded people, many of whom will become firm friends and potential travel buddies once your tour is finished.
You'll find a whole host of tours on this site, ranging from epic 2 month adventures through the African bush to day trips in Bangkok. Rest assured, we have something for everyone.
