Bare Basics

Bare Basics offers the touring essentials. We’ve selected itineraries that showcase the destination while keeping a mindful eye on the budget. Bare Basics travel style keeps it simple. There’s your tour guide, your fellow travel buddies, accommodation, and the touring is sorted. 

The Accommodation
It is clean and simple. It ranges from camping to hostels, or simple lodgings up to 3 star hotels. Some trips may have  multi share dormitory rooms or choices between multi share, twin share or taking your own room. There also may be homestays that offer the chance to stay with a local family.

The Extras
Some itineraries have limited inclusions - you have the freedom to choose where to spend your money on the extras along the way, from where to dine, to the activities you want to add. There will be other itineraries where more is included. Each tour will highlight what’s included, so you know from the ‘get go’ what you’re paying for and what you’re not.

About the Age Group
We recommend an age group that the trip’s popular with but, if it’s not an age match for you but  you’re content with a ‘no frills’ travel style then feel free to join.
