Travelsphere, an eight-time winner of the Best Group Tour Operator - Long Haul Award at the Group Leisure & Travel Awards, offers 50 years of experience in escorting its customers to 80 destinations across the globe. The tour operator has also signed up to sponsor this year’s Group Travel Organiser of the Year Award.

The firm says it has seen a 65% rise year on year in the number of tours being operated on behalf of group travel organisers and specialist organisations.

Glen Thomas, head of group sales at Travelsphere, said: “Accompanied by our knowledgeable tour managers we bring destinations to life and cater for the interests of each particular group.

Along with Travelsphere, Glen Thomas promotes group travel for its sister company; small group adventure operator G Adventures.

“As the demand from group travel increases, so does the type of holidays that are being requested,” explained Glen.

Trips organised by G Adventures include sailing trips, active trips, and tours that are high on local experiences and giving back to local communities.

G Adventures offers group travel organisers the chance to choose from already-made itineraries, like Highlights of Haiti or a Costa Rica Quest, as well as bespoke tours that can be tailor-made to suit group preferences.
