Independent vs. Group Travel

At Bentours, we want to create the Scandinavian holiday that you have been dreaming of, whether it is a tailor-made independent package or a ready-made group itinerary. Read more...

Bentours offers both classic group tours and independent itineraries that will bring your dream holiday to life. We are committed to helping you achieve your travel ambitions, whatever that entails.


If you'd like an authentic local experience at your own pace but don't want the stress of organising transport and accommodation, then consider one of our independent packages. The accommodation and breakfast is provided leaving you free to focus on exploring your new destination at your leisure.

At Bentours, we pride ourselves on being the tailor-made specialists and being able to create a wonderful escape for you with the help of our international partners and local friends. We can tweak any of our brochure itineraries to suit your needs so that you can experience something different on your holiday. Or, we can completely tailor-make your holiday! Use one of our itineraries (or anyone else's) as inspiration and we can bring your dream holiday to life, through an itinerary tailored exactly to your needs. You can extend a stopover to make the most of a weekend; switch a hotel room for an apartment to accommodate your family; add on a side-trip to see something stunning; splash-out on a little luxury to celebrate an anniversary or maybe include an excursion to visit old friends. Just sketch out your perfect adventure and let our destination specialists turn that into the holiday of a lifetime.
With the flexibility to adapt to your needs, your journey should be hiccup-free with our on-ground support without missing out on that element of adventure.

Group travel

We also offer a huge variety of fabulous ready-made group tours. On these tours, you will travel with a set itinerary and your day's activities are organised for you – after all, who wants to worry about what's next while they are on holidays? We work closely with our destination partners and local friends to craft itineraries that will show you the best a destination has to offer and allow you to create lasting memories. These packages generally include all your transport costs, an experienced guide, some meals, a sightseeing itinerary and entrance fees to various sites. Plus the opportunity to travel, sightsee and make friends with like-minded people in your group.

When you choose a ready-made group holiday from our brochures, you can be confident that we have crafted the holiday with all our experience, expertise and travel insight. And if one of these packages doesn't suit your dates, we can find you a group tour that does so that you can still experience the comfort and convenience of a ready-made holiday.

Our small group packages are ideal for the time-poor traveller who wants to see the best of an area without sacrificing their need to go beyond the well-travelled tourist sites. Unlike large coach tours, our intimate small group packages have the flexibility to adapt to the needs of the group, while relieving you of the hassle of organising transport, hotels, meals and visits to various sights. When you choose one of our small group packages, you are choosing to be a traveller and not a tourist, going beyond the well-trodden tourist paths to areas inaccessible to larger groups.

Whatever travel style suits you, we create every Bentours holiday to be the best experience and the best value for money possible, so if you do find the same trip from another company at a lower price, we guarantee we will match it.
