1.Roadtrip to North India
If you are someone who love long road trips like bus and train rides, this one’s for you.
Geckos Adventures offers an exciting North Indian tour. They’ll bring you to a 13-hour trip from Delhi to Varanasi, a 11-hour trip from Varanasi to Agra and a 10-hour trip from Bundi to Delhi. Sounds like you’ll be having a pretty much long chat with your seatmate, right? It’s your chance to meet new friends.
The trip requires a number of temple visits so you need to cover up as a sign of respect. The 11-day-journey includes going to Sheeshganj Gurudwara (Sikh Temple), Varanasi – Sunrise Boat cruise, Taj Mahal, Hawa Mahal (pink sandstone palace) and Bundi Palace. You can visit their website for prices and more detailed activities.
“I loved the amount of things we were able to fit into the short amount of time of our tour. The overnight trains really helped you feel like a local, with a more in-depth feel than other tours. The whole group of 8 women all felt safe with our tour guide, who was knowledgeable as well as entertaining,” a satisfied traveller said.
2. Feel like a royalty in France
If you want a vacation with a great luxury appeal, then Gillian and Tess are the right people to call. They are the founder of G&T Weekends that offers an amazing package tour that will make you feel like a royalty.
This year, the company landed a group of merrymakers to Loire Valley in France. Everyone surely enjoyed the big-group catered meals, night partying with unlimited drinks, French cooking and horseback riding.
“It was a formidably boozy weekend – did I mention that already? The free, limitless bar proved too much to resist for pretty much everyone, myself included, especially the girl who tripped backwards into the fountain. With so much drama in such a fanciful, filmic setting, the weekend felt like being in a glossy Hollywood rom-com – somewhere between Meet the Parents and the Wedding Crashers. The guy with an unquenchable thirst for rosé even looked like Vince Vaughn,” one of the guest commented in The Guardian article.
3. Sail your heart out
Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream. Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily life is but a dream. Set a vacation in the dreamy islands of Croatia. Sail your heart out and take a groupie in the picturesque background.

“Wow. What a week. Adventure week lived up to its name. This was an absolutely perfect way to see the Croatian coast, to meet the locals, try new things, and get a sense of the history of this unique country. Our skipper Zorica was awesome. Of course she was a great sailor who got us introduced to sailing, but she was really like a new friend who joined us on the adventure,” one happy costumer said.
