A lot of clients prefer the safety net of a guided group trip to ensure they are well looked after from the moment they arrive in their chosen country to their departure after the ride. It takes the guesswork out of the travelling so that you can truly relax throughout your holiday. Another bonus is that typically, the day before the ride starts, your guide will spend a day with you and the group visiting the tourist attractions of the capital. Also, if you have any problems throughout the ride, it’s your guide’s job to fix them.
The guided component also includes a digital album of your riding holiday, photographed and filmed by your guide and a globetrotting safari shirt (very stylish!).
Each year we schedule guided group rides to Africa, South America, Mongolia and other far-flung destinations (usually countries that we feel our solo globetrotters wouldn’t be likely to visit by themselves, where they would prefer the safety of a guide) led by either Kate & Steven Pilcher, founders of Globetrotting, or Globetrotting guides Laura Rae or Angus Johns, who have both ridden extensively around the world.
