Excursion tour group?

Excursion tour group?
Save

Hello all,

I am traveling solo and have a few days in Placencia. The array of potential day trips is quite impressive, but I am encountering an issue in that my hotel runs its own tours, but there is a minimum of 2 people. In order for me to take a day trip on my own, I'd have to pay twice the cost. That gets to be a little cost prohibitive for me, as well as probably not as much fun (ziplining through the jungle would be more fun with others, I would imagine). At the moment, there aren't many others staying at the hotel either, so no obvious tours from here that I could attach myself to.

Are there any good tour groups that offer day trips that would pick people up from all/any of the hotels in the area? A company that has a website that I could book through would be easiest, but I could probably get my hotel to call and help make arrangements if I knew who they should call.

Thanks much for your help and advice!

Ask your hotel to offer suggestions for independent tour operators they use. Or contact Trip and Travel in Placencia

Thanks for the tip! I will look into Trip and Travel.

I have asked my hotel about independent tour operators, but the one they use apparently said they have a 4 person minimum and not much going on right now. I will inquire further.

There are lots of local tour companies, but you may still have problem with finding one with someone else going at the time you want to go (we did recently). Here are a couple to try:
