Group Travel & Tours

How Do We Define a Group?

Group Travel is the most economical way to travel. Most travel vendors give discounts for groups, however each vendor defines a group differently. Here are some of those breakdowns:

  • Hotels - 10 or more rooms per night
  • Airlines - 10-15 seats on a plane
  • Cruises - 15-20 beds (based on two people per room)
  • Activities - 15 people

In addition, tour operators often are given additional discounts, since they buy in bulk. The can also negotiate free travel for your group's organizer.

Why Should You Use a Tour Operator?

Planning a group tour takes time, expertise and involves multiple suppliers such as: airlines, motor coach companies, attractions, accommodations, and restaurants. An experienced tour operator will seamlessly coordinate your group's entire trip-without extra work for you or organization-making all the necessary arrangements to accommodate your trip requests. Tour operators also ensure that suppliers are in compliance with federal safety standards and can provide proof of better business practices that are appropriate to the age of your group.

Group tour planning for educations tours


Peak Performance Tours is the best thing going in group travel. The planning is fabulous. The tour guides are responsive, helpful and flexible. On a Peak Performance Trip I can do two things I never could before: spend the majority of my time actually being a teacher for my students AND I can actually enjoy the trip myself.
