Here's where adventures get really exciting! A serious explorer tour is designed for those who have a good level of fitness as most activities on tour are prolonged or require physical effort to fully be enjoyed.

Your Explorer Questions, Answered
How do I know an Explorer tour is right for me?
If you're the type of traveller who can't make up their mind on what they want to do, or perhaps you can't decide on where you want to go, then an Explorer tour is perfect for you! Designed to get the most out of your trip without cutting corners, an Explorer adventure is budget-friendly and the most popular Adventure Style on TourRadar (which is a testament in itself!)
Are Explorer tours fast-paced?
In general, Explorer tours do tend to be more fast-paced than our other Adventure Styles as they feature a wide range of activities that are often in a short amount of time. You'll still have plenty of time to enjoy your trip, however, it's best to check with our Travel Experts as we have plenty of operators who offer slower, in-depth experiences which might be more suitable.
What's the difference between a Cultural and Explorer tour?
We've curated Adventure Styles to suit everyone's taste, so if you're looking to fully embrace different cultures (or even get to know your own a bit more) then a Cultural tour is ideal for you! Our Explorer tours are designed for those who love a bit of everything - think of a Peru trip that visits Andean hill tribes, but also includes a hike to Machu Picchu, an Amazonian boat cruise or a beach escape amongst the Galapagos Islands - yes please!
What if I don't want to do an activity on tour?
That's perfectly fine! Most activities on our adventures are optional, simply contact our Travel Experts or notify your guide whilst on tour if you're unable to participate. Sometimes your tour guide may offer an alternative excursion that can be just as exciting - like trying new foods at quaint cafes or free time to explore on your own!
How do I book an Explorer tour on TourRadar?
Find your next Explorer adventure by searching through our tours until you find one that stands out. Simply choose your dates and fill out your details to secure your trip. If you have any questions along the way, our Travel Experts are standing by 24/7!
