Who are the Be Original travelers?
Be Original adventures are for travelers with a yearning to get off the beaten track. Whether you’re travelling solo, with a group of friends, or are aged 18 or 40, there is a Be Original adventure to suit your interests and curiosity level. Each Be Original tour has a physical and cultural information to help you decide if the trip is right for you. No special skills are required for most adventures, just a sense of adventure and a curiosity about the world. Even on our pub crawl adventures, no previous experience is required; each of our itineraries are easy to navigate, leaving you with a bunch of new experiences to tell – for life.
How many people will be on my trip?
Good things come in small packages, which is why we keep our group sizes down. This means we’re small enough to remain flexible as we thread our way through our destinations without intimidating the locals. On most of our trips, you’ll be part of an intimate group of 12-16 people, though our group sizes are on average 10 people. Group sizes are displayed on each trip’s overview page on our website.
Are there age restrictions on your trips?
For the majority of our tours, the minimum age is 15. Our Pub Crawl Adventures have a minimum age of 18. Younger children can join us on our Walking Tours, but check each trip for its minimum age, which is located on the tour’s overview page on the website.
Who will be my tour host?
Our tour hosts are experts in their regions, some because they’ve been travelling there for years, others because they’re local to the region and can’t wait to show you around. We can’t tell you much about them, but we can tell you they will be awesome! To check on information about tour hosts, please visit your desired tour page, then scroll down to find more information about the host.
Can I just do part of the trip?
Most of our tours are quite flexible! So you can opt to sign off the trip if you need to leave an hour or so earlier. If you let us know before travel that you’ll be arriving late or need to leave before the tours ends, please contact the tour host to let them know in advance.
TIP: To have the best of time, we encouraged travelers to stay on the entire tour for both the pub crawls and walking tours whenever they can!
Can I make any changes to the itinerary of my group trip, either before or during the trip?
