"Small group touring is a great way to travel for the young and the young at heart, and we work with a number of fantastic tour operators that cater specifically to younger travellers."

Youth & Student Touring

If you are trying to find the perfect gap year adventure or you want to see exciting new places with a group of friends, small group youth and student touring is one of the best ways to see new destinations and discover other cultures and experiences around the world. By working with a number of leading escorted tour operators that cater specifically to young travellers, TourHound can help make your dream youth or student touring holiday a reality.

When you choose escorted tours with our expert providers and guides, you’ll see all the highlights of your chosen destination and make friends with like-minded young travellers along the way. The youth and student touring holidays we offer through our trusted operators are generally aimed at 18-35-year-olds and are designed to allow you to travel more without breaking the bank. So whether you want to travel solo or go on a memorable trip with a bunch of friends, you’ll be spoilt for choice with our amazing youth and student touring opportunities.

If you don’t want to travel far to have a fantastic holiday, you can reach the major cities in the UK or even pick a Europe multi-stop tour. Uncover the best of Britain and go on a tour that takes you from cosmopolitan London to sensational Scotland or enjoy the bustling old towns and bright city lights of Europe’s trendiest capitals. Alternatively, head to Amsterdam for Christmas, hitch a ride to Germany’s Oktoberfest or travel to California to catch a wave at some of the most awesome surfing spots.

Although our youth and student tour groups are small, the adventure can be as big as you want it to be. Plus, an escorted youth or student tour enables you to enjoy the best parts of the places you want to see, and you’ll have a better experience by travelling and eating like a local. And as your friendly tour guide will know the destination inside out, you’ll get to drink at the coolest bars, eat the tastiest street food, and escape tourist-heavy areas by visiting some of the best secret local hangouts.

But that’s not all. As your flights, transfers and accommodation are taken care of, you can enjoy every single moment of your small group tour and focus all your attention on having an amazing time.
