We believe that travel is an experience to be shared, however, group leaders often find that organizing a travel group can be time consuming and sometimes stressful.
That’s where Tradewind Adventures & Travel Group Experts can help. Our specially trained Personal Planners do all of the work; planning, tracking bookings & payments, coordinating special requests, distributing travel documentation, arranging for group transportation, etc.
This then allows all members of the group to truly enjoy the experience of travel - including you as the group leader!
What Do I Need to Do?
For your group to be successful, you simply need to promote your event and encourage people to participate, then show up on departure day and have fun!
