I Can Do This for Cheaper on My Own

You may have found yourself saying that when you stumbled upon one of our experiences.

I have something to tell you, "Yes, you can probably do one of these trips for cheaper on your own." 

While you may be able to do one of these trips for cheaper on your own, that doesn't mean you should. Here are a few reasons why group travel is the way to go...

1. You don't have to plan anything

Planning a trip can be a real pain in the ass. One of the best parts about traveling with a group is that everything is taken care of for you. All you have to do is show up. While we do have a set itinerary for our experiences, we give you plenty of time to do your own thing.


2. Create lifelong friendships

I did Semester at Sea during college. For those of you who aren't familiar with the program...it's a 100 day cruise around the world. You visit 13 countries and take classes while you're at sea. I remember boarding the ship in the Bahamas and not knowing a single person. I was 19 years old and nervous as hell. I am so thankful for the experience! I formed amazing friendships with people from all over the country. I still talk to most of them today.

I'm not promising that you'll meet your new bestie on a HFDG trip, but the bonds that are formed in 4-5 days are unlike anything else. The experiences you have together will create relationships that last a lifetime.

3. Skip the selfies

Don't get me wrong, I love a good selfie. But, sometimes it's nice to have someone else catch you in that Instagram-worthy shot. We bring a professional photographer on every trip, which means you can set the phone down and do your thing. I promise you'll have more than enough Instagram worthy shots to make your friends and family jealous they didn't sign up.
