I just recently returned from an Intrepid Tour to Eastern Europe. Tour group size was about 12 people. Trip was great, but I felt as if the value for the money wasn't ideal.
I'm wondering if there is a site or an organization that provides fully organized tours like the big tour companies, but without all the overhead. So, meaning the ability to book the trip (for some small fee), meet and follow the tour with the fellow members of the group, but only have a virtual tour guide to help answer questions, etc. I'd like the tour to be carefully laid out with links to each accommodation each day, (hotlink direct to the booking page), trains, buses, etc. and ability to communicate with group members through app to coordinate any activities during each day of the trip.
Has anyone done anything like this?
