Extend Your Travel Adventure

One way to further enrich your next group travel or cruise experience is to enjoy extra time exploring your destination—either prior to or after your main organized itinerary.

Pre- and post-tours (also knows as extensions) provide exactly this opportunity. Some extensions may even combine multiple signature locations in close proximity to each other to allow travelers the chance to increase experiences while in the region.

If your budget and schedule permit, extensions are a wonderful way to add an extra dimension to your upcoming trip.

If traveling on a cruise—joining a pre-tour allows you to arrive and acclimate prior to embarkation. This also helps decrease any chance of missing the boat due to flight delays or weather issues.

For land and water tours, a pre-tour provides you extra time to rest and recover from potential jetlag. Combine a few good night’s sleep with the opportunity to leisurely explore an exciting city—what could be better?

While pre-tours often offer free time to explore a destination, your tour provider may also have scheduled activities alongside a local expert. They may also be able to assist you in determining additional independent exploration.

After your scheduled main travel program ends, plan to stay for an extra few days to continue delving into the region.
