If you haven’t heard of going guided or don’t know much about it, you’re not alone—but you are missing out! Here’s the 4-1-1, including perks you won’t always enjoy when you travel on your own.
When you travel with us, you won’t have to find just-right flights, figure out where to stay and eat, or worry about how to get from one place to the next. We’ll do it all for you.
Traveling is about soaking in new experiences, not standing in long lines. Whenever possible, we’ll expedite your entrance to top cultural sites so you can get straight to the good stuff.
We’ll introduce you to locals where they live and work (think: private homes, vineyards, and farms). You’ll try your hand at their trades, from pasta making to pineapple picking.
On tour, you’ll bond with other culturally curious travelers over wow-worthy moments, and you’ll head home with a bunch of new, adventurous friends.
We don’t just make traveling easy—we give you time and tools to make any trip your own
For a just-right mix of shared experiences and on-your-own exploring, we include guided tours, group meals, optional excursions, and plenty of free time on every single trip.
Sure, your Tour Director and local guides will show you lots of highlights. But they’ll also take you beyond the beaten path for hands-on experiences you can’t whip up on your own.
Tour Directors are eager to help travelers make the most of every trip. Looking for the best baguette in Paris, or a spot to spend free time in Lima? Ask away (and prepare to be impressed).
There’s no denying it. For a while now, traveling has been tricky. The good news? When you book a guided tour with Go Ahead, you can relax and leave the nitty-gritty details up to us.
We monitor global travel guidelines 24/7. That way, we can let you know what’s required to get you where you’re going, and you can focus on what you want to do when you get there.
As travelers ourselves, we understand the value of fair, flexible policies that put people first—no matter what’s happening in the world. We constantly review and update our own policies to ensure they do exactly that.
We vet hotels, restaurants, and other travel partners so that our guided tours meet our (and your) uncompromising safety and hygiene standards.
We protect every traveler on every tour with our industry-leading EF COVID Care Promise. It covers hotel nights, meals, and more should you need to quarantine on tour—all at no extra cost to you.
