I am looking for an organization that offers tours, that are close to an individual travel experience.
The organization should:
+ organize the lodging
+ organize the travel from site to site
+ be able to provide tips and help
+ maybe offer some guided elements.
- But the tour should have plenty of time for individual exploring
- and no tourist style sight-seeing marathons
The closest I've found to this is: Shoestring Travel. They have trips through various countries in various difficulties (light travel <-> difficult journey). Their tours take you to multiple destinations and an english-speaking, local guide travels with the group. Unfortunately my travel time and their tours don't match.
Are there (other) organizations or companies that offer such semi-guided tours? Or how can I find them? (Googling doesn't help here as there are far to many "tourist style" travel companies that appear for the relevant search terms.)
