What is “Adventure Travel?” Will we be roughing it?
No matter what the destination or level of physical activity, you and your fellow travelers are facing the unknown together. You are treated like adults and empowered to make choices and create adventures of your own within the general tour framework.
The degree to which we “rough it” varies from one adventure to the next. Accommodations in comfortable lodges, hotels and resorts are the norm, but some of our tours include the added adventure of camping!
Are there risks?
There is no such thing as a “risk-free” adventure. Our guides and outfitters are selected for their experience, reputation and safety record. We encourage tour participants to test their limits and take acceptable risks in a safe and supportive atmosphere.
How do I prepare physically for a Toto Tour?
When you register for a trip you receive a detailed description of the tour explaining any special physical skills required. The majority of our tours are rated “easy” or “moderate” and are well within the physical abilities of the average person.
What kinds of people go Adventuring?
Adventurers have a special outlook on life. They tend to be fun-loving, people-oriented, good-natured and flexible. They are independent, and willing to accept responsibility for themselves.
What are the benefits of Adventuring with a group?
Independent types worry that joining a tour means losing their freedom. Some personal sacrifices are required, to be sure, but they are well worth the added enjoyment derived from sharing an adventure with others like yourself, where everything you see and do is enhanced through the unique perceptions of your fellow adventurers.
Who will I be traveling with?
Toto Tourists are men and women in their 30s through their 70s, with a few exceptions on either end. The average Toto adventurer is 45-55 years old and is successful in his or her current job or situation. The challenges of adventure travel attract people who like to bond with others and discourage those who prefer to remain aloof. Toto Tours draws participants from all over the country and the world.
How much luggage is allowed on your adventures?
Pack light, and stick to the suggested packing list provided for each tour. The most essential item we ask each participant to bring is his sense of humor. Our trips are as much about people and travel partners as they are about the world’s most beautiful places. Also, pack your willingness to accept situations as they exist in the face of a unique adventure travel situation. If you knew exactly what was going to happen each moment of your vacation, it wouldn’t be much of an adventure—would it? Being a good-natured realist will be one of your greatest assets.
